Lets Start Talking

The LST team made it in last night- we have Emily and Jacob Holloman this year. Jacob was here with LST last year, this is Emily's first time in Germany. Our information meeting is tonight, please pray that we will have a good turnout of possibly readers!

Things here have been busy getting ready for the LST folks to get here. Its kind of weird, thinking that was me 2 years ago. I like it though.

I had an uh-oh moment last week. It was Mothers Day, and being the good daughter and granddaughter I am I ordered my mom flowers and my grandma a candle. My grandmas candle said something like, "Miss you love you, see you soon" something to that extent.... problem: See You Soon... Not a good thing to say to someone who didn't want you to leave! I have been the completely random one in my family that will show up on special occasions, birthdays, holidays (mothers day), unexpected to say hello. Anyways, apparently I got my grandma's hopes up that I would pop in for a visit. She had seen on my facebook status that I had moved my plane ticket (to Sept 7th) and then got the card that said see you soon, so she was hoping I would show up! I called that afternoon, and she kept asking me, "Where are you?" I was very confused at first and then I remembered, I would sometimes just hop the fence and sneak in the backdoor and be sitting in the living room when she walked by, or sometimes I would wait at the door and call and tell her there was a surprise at the door. Once she really understood I wasn't there anywhere, I could hear the disappointment in her voice and then I remembered.

Just made me a bit homesick, I love being able to surprise people like that, and for them to expect it and me not be able to follow through just kills me. Alas, it wont be long and I will do it again, but never the less it makes the current time that much harder.

So there is my update- LST starts tonight, readers are slow right now, everyone is on Holiday or getting ready for Holiday so I only have a few appointments this week.

Be good and do good!
