Peter's Post

I neglected my dear brother-in-law in my last blog and must redeem myself by telling all those who read my blog that 1) he was there that weekend 2) I totally enjoyed hanging out with him too 3) he is way cool and if you don't know him you are missing out.

If I had a picture of him on this computer I would put it here...

Hope this heals all wounds, Peter.... ;-)

Hello all my faithful friends...
I know I have been bad about keeping up with my blog. This whole transition thing has kept me pretty emotionally drained. I just haven't taken the time to write.

So to update you on the things. I went to Boise for Easter. It was so fun to play with my niece and spend some quality time with my sister. It also freaked me out a little. It was much more real and I kept swinging from the excitement of moving to feeling like I had really taken an unwise leap of faith... still don't exactly know where I am going to land. I did not job hunt. At this point I am not planning on getting a job until the fall. Not that I know what in the world I am going to do with the rest of my life... but that will have to be another blog.

I have been encouraged, however, by the support of my friends and family. Everyone is quite positive about the move over all... except for the tears that tend to leak out every once in awhile. I will miss my friends here and the fimiliar ruggedness of Alaska.

I'm Back

Ahhh... where to start?

My dad is doing great! He will have to stay home and not drive for about 6 weeks. I am amazed everyday at how quickly he is recovering. Thank you to all who have been praying.

Now onto other things in my life. About a month ago I felt like God was telling me to move on... really it was more like kicking me in the butt. So I began to pray about what that move would be... I knew very quickly that I wanted to go be with my sister in Boise and be a blessing to her when she has her twins this summer. I talked to her and to my parents and they were all excited... to quote my mom 'I see nothing negative about this decision'. Almost two weeks ago I told my boss that I would be leaving this summer. We agreed that it would be best to wait until after our big event last weekend to make it public knowlege. So Tuesday it went public.

These are the stoic details... but emotionally I have been leaking tears at the drop of a hat. The thought of leaving my close friends and world here is going to be very hard. I had to tell my youth group girls that I have been working with for the last 4 years on Tuesday because I didn't want them to hear about it from anyone else... that was killer. It is so bitter sweet... I am thrilled for the new adventure and to see where God will take me... but leaving those that I have shared my life with for the last 7 years will be very very hard.

I have begun the enormous task of sorting through my stuff at home and making checklists for my job. This is going to be a wild and crazy ride.

I will try to keep you updated as things progress.
