Last week was a fabulous week. In fact, it's hard to get back to the grindstone but Im managing to get things done! Easter Sunday, I woke up at 5:30 and got ready for the 6:30 am sunrise service at church. I was at the church for the three services and left Dilworth after filling gas at about 12:30 pm. The weather was actually pretty decent and I was in DBQ by 9:05 pm. I apparently didn't communicate with my friend Carrie very well so she was not there. I was able to find some good friends who took me in for the night. It was great to catch up with them since I spent many days at their house during my last year of seminary helping E with her daycare etc. Thanks again for taking me in for the night E,D, L, and L! It was greatly appreciated! C came back to the Mothership on Monday so Monday night we went out for supper. Tuesday my reunion began. It was super great to see all my seminary classmates. There were a few who couldnt make it and were greatly missed. We did have a good turn-out though. Tuesday after chapel I finally got to meet a student whos blog I read and who reads my blog. It was fun to get to know her (and you know who you are!) Tuesday was spent catching up with each other about life since graduating etc. That night a bunch of us went out for supper at a great little place in DBQ. Then we had beer and theology with one of our professors who holds a weekly beer and theology to this day for seminary students. Wednesday was another busy day. Wed night we had a banquet and it was just fun to catch up. That night I got to hang out with some dear seminary friends including my seminary neighbor D, a seminary classmate N and many other seminary friends! First we went and had margaritas together. Then we decided to go sing karaoke! It was so great to be with these friends who I have missed soooo dearly and greatly! Thursday we said our goodbyes as the class left but I stuck around. Thursday evening was just spent with C as we watched tv and just chilled' Friday C, and I and another friend of ours BAI went to Galena to the winery. We tasted wine and just had a blast. Then we had supper. Friday night C and I met up with JG and had supper. That night we just watched movies and relaxed. Sat I left DBQ to head back to MN. I made a few stops along the way to catch up with some friends. Even though they were quick stops, they were totally worth it! It was so fun to just relax and have a little vacation from job.Today Im back to the grindstone reminiscing about the absolute awesomeness of last week! I cant even begin to tell my friends how much I truly miss them and am so blessed to have them in my life! Thank you Lord for a spendiforous week! Thank you for such amazing friends!
P.S. Dont have too much fun without me my friends! LOL!!!!
