I enjoy my internet

Well, the drama just never stops around here. The last time I was on was the 14th and at that time little did I know that I would soon be internet free for almost 2 wks!!! My internet has been down and I have called and chatted and tried to fix and then ended up having to make an appointment for a service visit. I work until around 3 everyday and the lady on the phone told me that the days are split up 8-12 and 1-5 and if they come while I am not home then I would probably have to make another appointment so I had to set it up for today which is Sat. So, crisis averted and now I am back online. YEAH!!

Easter has come and gone and it was a sweet time. My basement was too wet so we did the dinner at my mom's house instead and that worked out well. I just really wanted to do it at my apartment :( It was great to see my family and it always amazes me the family dynamics that I am surrounded by. So many different personalities, view points, and behaviors that one could probably write a book about it and maybe even a movie script.

I rode the bus all last week and part of this week but now we have other options so I am going to be riding only Thursday mornings which is wonderful for the next couple of weeks. My assistant is hoping to come back on May 10th and I have my fingers crossed. We are really in the final stretch of school this year and with June 2nd coming up (last day for kids) I didn't know if it would be possible for her to even come back.

I don't think that I have mentioned it for awhile but I am going to Guatemala in July on a Mission Trip and I am very nervous and excited. This will be the first time I have been out of the country. I have my passport and I am working on gathering the funds I need to pay for my expenses. I wrote a letter and sent it to about 15 friends and family telling them about the trip and unfortunately asking for help with funding. I don't really like to ask for help and I was very uncomfortable doing so. However, I really want to go on this trip and the reality is that I can't afford it on my own. We are doing fund raisers at church but every little bit helps. I have received some money back from those letters and to be honest it was overwhelming. I am a very blessed person and I am surrounded by those who love me. I cried when I opened those return envelopes. I just want to shout out to all those who know me and love me anyway. May God bless you abundantly.
