I didn't go to my high school reunion and everything I did do.

This weekend held celebration of my 10 year reunion. I will pause while all my friends who don't know my age gasp at how young I am............Pause...........................
Now that that is done I can tell you I didn't go for at least 12 reasons, most of which I don't really want to blog about. I had several old friends call and ask where I was however I could not get over the idea of the reunion being held at Silver Reef Casino. The other night was graduates only at a bar in Lynden. I am not opposed to going out and having a drink however I would never go to a bar alone without my there that's one reason. Number 2 I wasn't sure that hanging out in these places would represent what I stand for very well and I would be in mixed company so I decided that also made it a no. A number 3 reason was my senior year I didn't really gel with my class much which means most of my friends were from LC. Number 4 I was very busy running a food booth for Ebenezer so I really had no time to get dressed up and go anywhere. So there are 4 of my 12 reasons. There is always the 20 year and if it seems like the right thing to do then I will do it.

What I have been doing is food, catering that is. I have been working so much its crazy. Last week we had several Drs meals, a wedding,and a philanthropists conference for Western. I felt like food was coming out of my ears but it was actually very satisfying at the end of the day. At the close of the philanthropist event, over the sounds of philanthropizing, whale music and storytelling I was able to take a step back and realize that God was using me in that place, He was using all of my passions and gifts at the same time that evening... it was wonderful! The very next day I started preparing for the madness of food booth. The food never stops but its good.

Next week the Jagers are going on vacation and although we are still up in the air about the location I know that it will be full of relaxation. I requested we go somewhere that requires not much more than bathing suits, sunscreen, and sand buckets...but only time will tell. I can't wait to spend a whole week with no cell phone reception (this is the only time cooperate cell phone man ignores his phone). Btu mostly I am excited to spend some us 4 Jager time with my favorite little people.
