I'm Reaping the Whirlwind.


After 4 plane rides, 6 hours of total sleep, and an epic 12 inning, 7 hour game this picture sums up my weekend perfectly.

I have no idea what I'm talking about, no clue when this picture was taken, but it looks like everyone is having a good time.

Sleep deprived and punch drunk, about the best I can do tonight is say what an awesome time I had this weekend.

Thanks to Rob for everything; I've never know anyone as generous as you and JD. You made what I thought was an impossible dream into a reality and I can't thank you enough. The only bad note to the whole weekend was the Red Sox lost, but I'm keeping the fair they'll win tonight.

More when I can form a coherent thought or when I get enough sleep, whichever comes first.

All I know is when I taxied down the runway and saw the skyline of Boston off to my right, then after the plane flew out over the harbor and headed toward Charlotte I finally knew what it meant to have your heart tugged toward a place like my Dad feels toward the Blue Ridge Mountains.

Maybe one of these days I can convince Ang of the same thing. Until then, I'll be humming the song "Boston" if you need me.

Oh yeah; A Red Sox clinch of the ALDS tonight would sort of make my day.

Bro, I'm sorry they the end wasn't what you'd hoped for, but it sounds like you had a blast.

But live? C'mon.

Wait...isn't that one of the signs of the Apocalypse?

For what it's worth, always keep your heart open to what the Lord has for you. It was difficult for us to leave our home, family, the growing up years of our nieces and nephews behind. Was our leaving Canada a mistake? I have my days where I question that and yet when I look back on all the lives we've touched and have touched ours, I decide to trust Him. After this weekend though, you may want to postpone your move because Angie needs her support system. You'll just have to take my word on that if you don't know it already. I'm glad you had a good time though!

I know how you felt about that return flight, Ted. I feel that same tug every time I leave...So glad you got a chance to experience a playoff game - still on MY bucket list!

Newt, they just delayed it a day for me.

Tex, I'm dreaming!

Horsham, I was awake. Standing in front of the tv because I figured if I fell asleep I'd wake up when I fell over.

Edge, she had a rough weekend. Seems like everytime I go away somebody gets sick.

Beth, it was FANTASTIC! And that tug is pretty strong; hopefully you'll get a chance soon to get to a playoff game.
