Hi! It’s me.
Now, I know that when you clicked over to this website or saw a new post on your bloglines you thought, “Hey! A new post from Brandi! I was wondering where she was. I hope she didn’t write some well thought out and cohesive post that is both funny and poignant and makes me see my life in a bright new way. No, what I want is a random list of stuff that’s been going on with her and weird stuff she thinks up off the top of her head. That would be great.”
Guess what, people. Today is your lucky day.
I have been busy busy busy, and when I’m not busy, I’m at home where we don’t have the internet. Technically there are some unprotected wireless networks (scandalous!) but for some reason my network card doesn’t pick them up. So my access to both free time and the internet in the same moment is severly limited. In fact, right now I am staying late at the office to post this instead of going home and making dinner for Aaron. I choose you, internet!
Do you have any idea just how frequently John Mellencamp songs are played on the radio? My CD player in my car is broken, so I have been listening to a ridiculous amount of radio, mostly using the scan button. John Mellencamp is on the radio ALL THE TIME, y’all. They play him on easy listening, oldies, classic rock, mix stations, EVERYWHERE. It is killing me. I can only take so much Johnny Cougar.
Youth stuff is going pretty good these days. We’ve been doing a pretty basic study series on Sunday mornings, and it has been really eye-opening for me to see how much (or little) the kids know and what kinds of crazy things they believe. We have a lot of big plans for the summer that I think will be good for building relationships within the group. That is something we really need. We move into a new office in a couple of weeks where I will finally have a desk that is all my own and will be able to stop living out of my car, so that will be nice. My car is tired.
So You Think You Can Dance starts next week! I am crazy excited. Some of the youth girls and I will be having a weekly SYTYCD get together. I have to spread the word to the younger generations, you know.
We move into our new house a week from tomorrow. I cannot believe it’s already time. We have not yet sold our townhouse. Know anyone who’s interested in a supercute townhouse in Nashville? I can make them a deal!
Right now I’m listening to Shai. Remember them from your seventh-grade dance? I loved them. I had my second-ever slow dance to “If I Ever Fall In Love”. (I can’t believe I remember this.) My first slow dance was to “Don’t Take the Girl” by Tim McGraw. I remember that because it was the first time I’d ever heard that song, and the guy I was dancing with said something like “Oh wow this song is really sad” when it started but I didn’t know what he was talking about. Then Shai came on and I got really excited but he didn’t know the song. That’s when I knew we weren’t meant to be.
And now I have to stop throwing my thoughts at you because The Office comes on in 30 minutes and I have to get home. And order a pizza, apparently. Sorry, Aaron!
