Are We Lost?

I was never a Girl Scout, but I believe their words to live by are...

Make new friends, keep the old. One is like silver and one is like gold.

Something like that. Well, I was glad to receive an evite from Amanda at LaLaLaLola. She is a friend of a friend, but she is friend of a friend that lives in Philadelphia. So, hopefully, we'll be all moved in and ready for a party when the date arrives.

We'll probably get lost. That is usually okay though. It is a little game that Tim and I like to play called, "Let's See If We Can Find Our Way Home". We take obscure paths and roads and then, we get lost. Usually, not on purpose, but sometimes on purpose. I think we'll have to be more careful in Philadelphia because their roads do not just go north and south in a square. But, I have a map. We'll be fine.

I hope we don't get lost driving to Philadelphia. I am sure we won't because Interstates kind of keep you in line. Thankfully, Tim and I like to drive. In order to have a successful road trip, some of the following things...
- Some thoughtfully planned mixed CDs
- Candy-I like Bit-O-Honey and Licorice, but if we stop, I always get M & Ms-plain
- Diet Coke
- Good Conversation
- Comfortable Silences
- Maps

Boy, do we have maps. Tim likes to buy a map from every state that we have visited in our car. Not just any map, but it has to be a Rand McNally laminated and folded state map. We have about 13 maps. So, I like to break them out and just look at them. This can keep me entertained for hours. I am a nerd.

ah, sara, there is really a little (or a lot) of nerd in all of us. I've also learned recently that nerds really are the coolest people around. ;-)

and not to get off topic, but to answer rhiannon's question re: god/fate/free will---the question that I always ask regarding that whole thing is: if God is all knowing, all powerful, and all good how do bad things happen? seriously--all good, and all powerful, and yet allowing poverty, despair, tsunamis, wars, what have you...? doesn't make a lot of sense to me. I won't go further into my belief or disbelief in god, but take that for what it's worth. random unrelated sidenote: i saw the pics from the reunion, and you look great! super cute green dress! :-)

We hope you and Tim can make it! We promise to have plenty of Diet Coke and will give you very accurate directions in order to arrive at our house with minimal problems! :)
