#1. HUGGING. I don’t HATE hugging.  I just don’t choose it as my primary display of affection.  I have had more interesting conversations and emails this weekend regarding people feeling awkward about hugging me.  It’s been hilarious.  Let me clarify- it’s okay to hug me.  I will probably hug you.  It’s just not my FAVORITE past time.

#2.  GEORGIA FOOTBALL. Have I ever mentioned that my Dad went to Alabama?  Sheesh.

#3.  NASHVILLE. I am going back.  Tomorrow.  Sue me.  My mom offered up a Paula Deen recipe for dinner.  You may call that manipulation.  I call that delish-ulation.

#4.  A JOB. I got one.  An editing job that will last 8 weeks.  I’m thrilled and nauseous.  But not in that order.  Pray for me.  And sing that good ole country song, “There’s a first time for everything”.  Cause that’s what I’m singing.  Along with “PLEASE GOD HELP ME”.  It’s a new song that you may not have heard before. Because I just made it up.

#5.  HEALTH INSURANCE. I got some today.  So were my arm to get cut off tomorrow, the hospital would replace it for less than the cost of that arm plus a leg.

#6.  THANKS. For all your love and encouragement.  I feel my emotional strength returning and I’m feeling better about Nashville.  This whole following God thing?  It’s a roller coaster.  But I’m buckled in.  The hills may seem to be too much at times, but a worse fate would be to get off the ride.  His ways are always better.  So I’ll choose to trust.

    Are you copying off of God? Isn’t that his favorite number? That’s just what I’ve heard.

    BTW, adding you to my blogroll because I just can’t stop reading.

    Oh, Georgia. Poor Georgia. They played SO well in the third quarter, I thought they might actually pull it off.

    I totally understand your waiting another day to go back to Nashville. A Paula Deen recipe would do that to anybody!

    Hey Annie it’s homecoming week at several high schools….I was just thinking isn’t it kinda cool that it is “homecoming hoopla” everytime you come “HOME”? That’s the way we will feel when we get where we are going! Yippee for homecoming HOOPLA !!! Edit away- you’ve got it!

    Your #6 gives me chills. I love your ability to see realistically in this transition. My passion tends to overshadow my feelings sometimes. When I can think clearly we need to discuss this topic in depth. Missed you last night. There were lots of guys at my place. 🙂

    Paula Deen meal? Invite me over next time, please.

    Congrats on the job and health insurance. Gotta love the idea of getting injured or sick and not having to pay for it.

    And I’ll try to refrain from too much hugging when you come here. TRY. B/C I’m a hugger. So I ain’t promising nuttin.

    “Please God help me” sounds like a song I would like to learn…I would sing it all the time as well.

    FYI I made the earlier comment not Camille. Sadly enough she didn’t get to go to the game…or maybe that was a good thing.
