This Summer is going to be hectic. The weeks leading up to Summer have been crazy enough. So partly because of that, and partly because I’m a little lazy and uninspired when it comes to writing, I haven’t written much. Well, to be fair, I have expressed myself wonderfully at least once per week, and then I delete the post at the end, because I don’t want to deal with the reactions. It’s easier that way. I guess I could save drafts, edit them, and post a more palatable version, but writing unedited and deleting at the end is more therapeutic (and less hassle) for me. So, just in case you’re wondering (and you’re not) what I’m up to or will be doing this Summer, here are five things I’m excited about.
1. Jonny Lang and Buddy Guy
Two weeks from Friday, I’m taking Sarah to see Jonny Lang. Buddy Guy is great, but he’s not a household favorite, so we’re not as excited to see him. We managed to get tickets for $15 each after ridiculous fees to see him. We’re going with our friends Todd and Amanda.
2. Mission Trip to Nashville
The next day, I’m leaving with a bunch of students and adults to go to Nashville. We’ll be serving in the community down there for a week. This is made more exciting by number 3.
3. Eating at Chick-Fil-A at least five times when I’m in Nashville.
4. Family time.
You thought about skipping this, because you assumed I was going to talk about Sarah and Jakob. Well, you’re wrong. I’m not going to talk about how awesome they are and how much I love them. Instead, I’m excited that I will see all of my siblings, nephews, and nieces at once for the first time since 2006. Three of them didn’t even exist yet (Pepper, Jakob, and Gabe <–birth order). The men are going to a Tigers game, and then we’re getting family pictures done later in the week. It should be glorious!
5. 10th anniversary festivities
This year, we will have been married ten years. We cannot afford to do some of the things we’d like to do, so I’m getting creative. Can’t tell you how, because Sarah doesn’t know, but it will be majestic.
