Lost in a familiar place

I'm starting to feel alone in life. I have wonderful family and friends, but everyone is so far away. It would be an excellent time for me to put more time and energy into focusing on my relationship with the Lord, but I tend to have an incredible knack for procrastinating. Due to my lack of Bible reading and prayer time, I've recently been feeing more confused, discontented, and frustrated with myself and life in general. I think it's time to change that. Quite often it's easier said than done, but it's time to make an effort to live right and serve the Lord in every aspect of my life; no more pushing Him aside!

Work has been wearing on me quite a lot lately for many reasons, and I'm happy to say I get to take some holiday time next week!! I'm thrilled! I haven't had much of a vacation since the beginning of last summer, so I'm over-due I think. My wonderful plan for that week will be to make a bit of a road-trip out East to steal Luke away from his family and bring him back to Ontario to hang out with all of us cool Ontarians. Unfortunately my poor little car has a few issues, but she should survive the trip. My dear father spend most of last weekend doing some repairs on her, and there are still more to be done!

I was at Rachel Henderson's wedding this past weekend in Peterborough. It was a very ceremony with a small lunch reception afterwards. She looked beautiful and I'm glad they're both so happy! :) Here's a picture of the wedding party:

Sarah Hele and I got to have a lot of fun that weekend. She's such a sweetheart! We rented a hotel room for a couple of nights and really enjoyed hanging out there. They had a pool and a hot tub that we made good use of, and the room we were in was pretty nice! I'd do it again in a heartbeat if it wasn't so expensive! We hung out with Sarah's friend Steve, Andrew, and Dave for a little while on Sunday, and I also got to see Laura jay which was an awesome surprise! She's so much fun and I really miss hanging out with her!
Well that's another quick look into my life right now. Perhaps one day I'll get better at making more frequent blog posts! :)
