As If...

Got this email reminder yesterday.  

As if we needed one.  

As if the countdown didn't start way back in November or some crazy-early time like that ~ when the tickets were purchased, and after I spent a couple of hours of my life researching strategies for acquiring tickets to shows that sell out in the first 10 minutes.

As if we haven't been Enchanted by the 1989 album ever since its release.

As if the outfit/costume planning didn't begin about two months ago.

As if there was a Blank Space on the calendar this Friday night.

Friday night!  Just 4 more days! (Still don't know what I'm wearing!)

We have a group of seven going, and one of my friends in the group, Missy, is a Special Education teacher near Boston.  Her students made a video spoof of Taylor's "Shake It Off" and it is just so fun.  Take a few moments to watch it and share if you could.  They are really hoping to get Taylor to stop by for a visit when she's in town this week. She's well known for this type of kindness and generosity, so I think it's a definite possibility! 

Isn't that GREAT???

We just returned from a week of youth camp which is always wonderful and exhausting but mostly wonderful.  Laughing, worshiping, playing, and enjoying such sweet fellowship with those who return year after year.  Robert and I got away for a quick lunch with Lars (Elisabeth's husband) who's only five minutes from the Gordon College campus, and I'll tell you about it as soon as I can.

First....about 200 pages of Ethics reading, two quizzes, a 12 page research paper on biblical patriarchy vs. modern day fatherhood (focusing on Dominionist theology, Rushdoony, Doug Phillips, the Quiverfull homeschool movement, etc.), feeding my family (no food here after 10 days away at camp!), for my concert outfit, of course.
