The pool at my in-laws' house is opening today, and I am feeling ambivalent. On the one hand, I am excited to take Josiah swimming for the first time, and to enjoy the refreshment of a dip in the pool myself. On the other hand, SWIMMING SUIT. I could ugly cry at the thought of getting in a swimming suit and actually allowing people (myself included) to see me.

I am currently reading five different books: Going Solo by Roald Dahl, Gideon the Cutpurse by Linda Buckley-Archer, Atlas Shrugged by Ayn Rand, How the Irish Saved Civilization by Thomas Cahill, and Redwall by Brian Jacques. As usual, I am participating in my library's summer reading club for adults, so I need to do a lot of reading this summer. But it might be a good idea to finish one before moving on to the next, don't you think? Also, do you have any recommendations for a good book once I am finished with all these?

I am pretty sure I am going to be the new nursery coordinator at our church. Part of me thinks this is very unwise, as I am currently rather overwhelmed by life generally, so why on earth add another responsibility?! But the truth is that even though it has been almost a year since we moved to our new church, I still feel like a visitor and an outsider. We have made some friends, but every week I am struck by how many people I don't know by name yet. They don't feel like my family. And maybe they never will quite like the people at our old church did...but I haven't made enough of an effort. The only way to really make a church your home is to start serving there.

Next week the trial for the accused murderer of my sister-in-law will finally begin. It makes me feel all shaky to know that it is finally here. Supposedly the trial will not take long, so we may know his fate within a couple of weeks. I can hardly believe that next month it will already be two years since that nightmare happened and we lost our sister. I haven't written much about it on my blog, mostly for privacy's sake, but also because there isn't a whole lot to say about it. Anyway, if you are a praying person, I would appreciate if you would hold up my husband's family, the accused murderer and the justice system in your prayers.

Yeah, not having the internet at home sucks.
