Not Such a Swell Start

September 17, 2008 at 12:57 am (Uncategorized) (, , )

So this whole doing new things, yeah, it’s not going as I would have liked.  Isn’t that always the case though?!  Sometimes working does lend itself to fun, creative things, but I am going to work on this.  I actually have some ideas formulating in my big ol’ head – notice I didn’t say brain, I’m a humble braggart.  Hopefully I will have time to start living my life, but alas, who knows.

I believe we will be hiring 2 new folks at my work.  This should be an interestng change of pace.  I’m excited and hesitant because, relatively speaking, we have a pretty good group of folks whose personalities don’t clash right now.  I guess you could say we have weeded out the misfits!

On Sunday there was a shooting not far from my Mom’s house, and I somewhat know the person who was shot.  I read his sister’s blog, and I go to Church with them.  Anyways, he is 16 and was running around the Grand Prairie High School track around 9pm Sunday night.  Apparently a gold cadillac pulled up parallel to the track, rolled the window down, and shot him in the cheek!!  Instead of dropping to the ground, he turned around and ran for his life!  Luckily, the car drove off and there were 2 other people running around the track, so they took him home and then he was rushed to the hospital.  Thank Heavens he is OK!  That is so incredibly scary for me.  I am paraonid about my Mom, of course, but who would do such a thing to an innocent 16 year old boy?!  If that bullet would have been inches any other way, he wouldn’t be here.  I just don’t understand the ways of this world.  It makes me terrified to even think about having a child in a world like that.  But, God is good and he will prevail, I’m sure of it!

On that note, I think I shall end ye ol’ post.  I’m so tired for some odd reason.  Happy Hump Day folks!
