The "have no clue" blog

So - it has been too long since I have updated my blog.....or so a whole bunch of people told me at IHC this past week! I am sure that I have had a bunch of things happen in my world since I last blogged but since (as the title says) I have no clue what I am doing, I will just blog randomly today!
First of all, the front end of my poor car got crunched by a Ford Explorer! This is what that looked like:

It has now been properly fixed and looks normal once again!
Now, a little "pre-story" to the next topic of conversation. Dave travels here and there on a frequent basis, Carrie spends more time in the airports at Indy and West Palm Beach than she does anywhere else, Ashley has been to Florida and is always busy and mom, well.....I work - either at work or at home! So, through a series of conversations I figured out that my best friend, Tara, from Florida was going to be about 5 hours from me and I planned a road trip!!!!! I got a couple of books on tape and hit the road around 7am on Saturday and went to meet Tara! It was GREAT!!! I met some of her family, got to see Spencer and Cassidy and Betty (Tara's Mom) and then had a nice LOOOOOOOOONG lunch! See how much fun we had?!?!

That was so much fun and I am so glad I took the time to make that trip!!!
Let's see - what else can I tell you about? Ummm.....went to IHC this past week and that was so nice! I really looked forward to having a few days off work and so enjoyed myself. I went over Tuesday morning with my mother-in-law and Ashley and then Dave and his dad came over on Wednesday! I ran into all kinds of people that I knew and really enjoyed the music! If you think that you need a pick-me-up, go to the website for IHC and watch the Thursday afternoon service! The first guy that spoke was amazing and I was reminded AGAIN how blessed I am!
Now for the family! Dave got to take the trip of a lifetime with his dad back to the country of his birth - Bolivia, South America! He had such a great time and came home with tons of pictures and I will probably try to do a blog about that sometime soon! He has been gone quite a bit but is now home for a few weeks! That makes this wife happy!! David and Christa are doing well and keeping busy with Marine life and married life! Carrie is busy working, flying and planning a wedding! We have in our possession THE wedding dress and that has made us all happy! Things are progressing well! They have their first little home and Josh will be moving there soon! Wow - time is flying! Ashley is busy with the last few weeks of school and working part-time at Taco Bell. She survived ACE competition and a trip to Florida for her spring break! Of course there are other "things" and "people" that take a lot of her time and attention but she still manages a second or two here and there for her mom and dad!! :)) I am working and well.....working! Trees are starting to bloom and flowers are coming up and that means that maybe, just maybe it will start to warm up around here!!
So, that is it for now! I am sure that is a whole lot more I am missing but a Sunday afternoon rest is calling my name!!

Great catch-up post. I really think Indiana just had to be ornery to those of you southerners who moved into our area this year. It has been wacky! I, too, am ready for it to be warm and STAY warm! (remind me of that in July or August :)
