bab nite and bats

tonight was bab nite. i thought it went really well. we wanted to have a band in for this month and originally had stellar kart booked. they weren't able to do it, so we got kids in the way. they weren't able to make it, so we got staple. i had never heard of them before, but i was pretty impressed. they were incredibly nice and easy to work with. their sets went well and after service we took them out to eat. during a conversation about bats, israel began telling a very creepy story. all four guys used to live together and had tons of bats in the building they rented from. israel said one day he went in to the bathroom and lifted the toilet seat to find a bat hanging from the inside. he said it started screeching at him with that creepy face bats make. i would have crapped myself.
anyway, i'm happy we got to have staple in. they were really cool and hopefully we'll get to have them back someday.

the end?

i'm considering deleting this blog. with the burial of neil's blog, i just feel used. he urged everyone to start blogging and then seemingly vanished. neil, you've hurt me to the core. so, this could be it for mrsfoss...maybe i'll start a new blog under the surname layla bucksnort. it seems the new "thing" is making new identities for blogs.

wedding cake

here's the picture, joy! i think it's really pretty, but let me know what you think.
obviously, the ribbon and flowers wouldn't be burgundy and we wouldn't use ivy...ewww.

i am moving to guatemala. i miss it. it's funny how one of the most painful times in my life has become something i miss daily. i sometimes wonder if it's actually guatemala i miss or the life i lived down there for 2 weeks. i've never felt so close to God. there were no distractions. every day i was focused on 1 goal: reaching guatemala for Christ. i want that fire back. i want it for warren, ohio.


have you ever had a dream that felt so real that when you woke up you questioned whether or not it really happened? i was talking to gabby about dreams the other day and she told me she had a dream that both of her arms were amputated. i was losing it as she demonstrated how she tried climbing a mountain with the nubs that were left. anyway, i had a dream a couple of nights ago that i was in a room full of babies that were up for adoption. it broke my heart that these tiny newborns had no home. i decided to adopt one of them. she was beautiful...blonde hair, blue eyes. i fell in love. i picked her up and showed her to my husband and family before i filled out the paperwork and they all agreed she was perfect. i placed her back in the bassinet and the man in charge came up to me and said, "you may not want that one." i replied, "why wouldn't i want her? she adorable!" "when she grows up, she's going to want to eat you" he said. i was shocked he would say such a horrible thing, so i reached down to pick up my little angel and realized she had turned into a baby grizzly bear! somehow i didn't care and adopted her anyway...then i woke up. weird...huh?
