So, I'm reading this book.. some of you may have to. And this hit me.

"Humans, as a species, are constantly, and in every way, comparing themselves to one another, which, given the brief nature of their existence, seems an oddity and, for that matter, a waste. Nevertheless, this is the driving influence behind every human's social development, their emotional health and sense of joy, and, sadly, their greatest tragedies. It is as though something that helped them function and live well has gone missing, and they are pining for that missing thing in all sorts of odd methods, and none of them are working. The greater tragedy is that very few people understand they have the disease. this seems strange as well because it's obvious. To be sure, it is killing them, and yet sustaining their social and economic systems. They are an entirely beautiful people with a terrible problem."

Okay, in all seriousness. Have you ever felt like you're craving something but you're not sure what it is. And I'm not talking about needing Jesus (or maybe I am?), but more along the lines of better relationships, better education, better... something... You can feel it in your bones, your heart, in your gut that you need it so badly... But yet you still can't even figure out what it is so that way you can make steps toward that.

I don't know... Maybe it is fellowship. (real fellowship) Karl and I are looking for a new church, not saying that we wont still be attending Mars, as we're not even sure completely if we want to join a new church.. but maybe that's that something. Maybe not. I'm not sure.

All I know is that I'm craving something, desperately... Have you felt that? How did you go about figuring it all out? What was it. In all seriousness.

So, Karl and I went to the in-laws for dinner, and come to find out, his sister Julie had found a stray cat in their back yard.....

So, you know what happened...

We temporarily have a new cat.

I know, I know...


School starts this coming week, and I'm quite nervous. I suppose it will be a nice change compared to spending my days sleeping in, basically never showering, watching cook shows and animal planet all day, and then going back to bed...

I've enjoyed the past few weeks with the holidays, parties, and thursdays. Thanks friends. Thanks family, Thanks husband.
