Silverware and Groceries

As I was unloading/reloading the dishwasher tonight I realized something funny about myself. When I put silverware into that little basket I must put like utensils together, so spoons must be in the same section with spoons, forks with forks, etc. It doesn't bother me if other people mix them up, but if I am loading dishes I will always separate...isn't that weird?

Another little quirky thing of mine....when I load my groceries onto the conveyor at Wal-Mart I load them by where I will put them away (all the frozen stuff together, cookies and chips together, and don't forget the bread goes in the fridge so that's gotta be with the cold stuff too!)

So yeah if you wanted to know if I have some weird neurotic things beneath my laid back exterior there is your answer....

In other news, this Friday and Saturday we're having a garage sale. It's amazing how much stuff I have accumulated in 5 years.

I'm finally feeling a few twinges of sadness about leaving. Luis was here this week, and last night he was commenting on how it was sad that after so much time, so many memories and friends, that we were finally moving on with no real reason to come back.

He's right. So much has happened in this little Arkansas town. When I think back to the girl who moved here five years ago I can't believe how different I am. I was insecure and unsure of my direction in life and really toying with my faith rather than making it my own. While I can't say that I have all the answers or even have my faith journey totally figured out I can say that the people and experiences that started here have set me in the right direction. Wow, I'm so thankful, so very very thankful to the professors, friends and others who made this experience possible. You know who you are...thank you!

In two weeks I will drive away from JBU, maybe for the last time, but the memories will always be here. Check out the pictures below for a walk down memory lane!
