Nothing much happening these days but moving. While doing so I'm in a throwing a lot of stuff out mode, including the past as moving forward is always best. Yesterday I tore up some pictures and threw them out since they have nothing to do with me anymore, but how's this for ironic? I get a call fifteen minutes after doing this from Lebanon asking me to send those pictures. Um, oops.
My brother came over and took a bunch of my stuff too. That's cool that it can stay in the family. My neices visited last night with him and sis in law. Then we all went to dinner. When asked where the kids wanted to eat, to my shock they said "Hooters!" very excitedly - I guess that's their favorite place now. Only my brothers kids would say such a thing. We didn't go there of course.
Here's a quote I heard the other day i really liked:
"A ship in a harbor is safe, but that's not what ships are built for."
I realize much of my fear about moving and what not is coming from this thought. I've been living life safe. Everytime I start stressing out, I say this quote. Prayer has been good too.
Here's an article that upset me about Israeli's building where Palestinian homes should be: Click here for the article
and another about female detainees getting raped and as a result getting pregnant. Sick. Click here for the article
I probably won't blog again until I get to my new destination. I'm looking forward to seeing Shrek 2 with a new found friend there. The road trip should be fun too. Gonna pass through Memphis and Nashville which should be fun. Graceland here I come. ;-) With gas prices being so high and even higher during the memorial day weekend, I will probably be flat broke when I get there.
A Muslim I know is now a National Delegate - Cool and Congrats!
This is good as we need more Muslims speaking out. Congrats Khadija! You go girl!
So Georgia, my new home is possibly the target for a terrorist attack - the G-8 Meeting. Great.
