My trip to the OC was delicious. It had been 7 months since the last time the I was home and it was worth the 5 days on the beach. I arrived Thursday afternoon and right away I walked on Salt Creek Beach with my mom. We always prayer walk and catch each other up on our lives. Thursday evening proceeded with the Z and J video productions: The Boargeese Pig, The last 4 months and the Splits video. I was able to show my parents everything I’ve been up in the last 7 months. I slept 15 hours and woke up to my big Sis doing the splits in front of my bed, this was her way of letting me know she saw the video. We all three walked on the beach, then my mom took me to get my ears lowered. Also a tradition was my annual run to Starbucks, this trip I was determined to finish Fire Within by Thomas Dubay. Luckily there is a starbucks within walking distance of our house. I spent Friday night with Scott and Alyssa. Scott is my brother-in-law who is married to my big Sis, they have been married for almost 2 years now. We chilled and watched season 2 of The Office.
Saturday was the highlight of the trip. Off to a slow start Scott and I played B-Ball with some of his friends, the only problem with this sport is that I suck at it. I got cut in the eighth grade, I kept reminiscing to this low moment in my life when I experienced my nervous system shutting down and coach L gave it to me: you are good, but not good enough for this team. Coach L, eat your heart out, look at me drain that three pointer. Later on in the day, after stuffing our faces with Mexican food, Scott took me surfing at Newport beach. It was cold and windy but regardless, it was my first time surfing. After falling 40 times I finally rode one wave in all the way to the shore, then fell again. It was the craziest two hours I have had in a long time.
Saturday evening was interesting. We celebrated this girl’s birthday party who turned 23. I sat across from this one girl I used to date in high school. We haven’t really talked in two years so that was interesting.
Sunday ended with church in the morning. Life Church is where my parents have attended for two years now and in the evening we attended the home group that my sister and Scott started two years ago.
I read the Crucified God by Jurgen Moltmann while I was in the airport today and I am pretty sure I have no clue what he is talking about. I have 50 pages to go in Fire Within, then I am done.
Z and I are going out to breakfast this morning so I will say everything I just said to you to him.
