This is NOT a “feel bad for me” post. I’m extremely happy! And I figure a random thought stream will do for now.

Sorry I haven’t been posting like I want to. I’ve been on a bit of a roller coaster lately, dealing with the sort of stuff that I can’t discuss on a public forum. And that also means it’s stuff I can’t discuss openly on Facebook. But I can on Google+. (Nudge, nudge.)

There has been a teaspoon of drought and doubt in my recent weeks that was quenched by a liter of water, both literally and figuratively. I have excluded certain paths that were there for the walking in favor of other paths that are more promising. I have met people who rightfully should be awkward people to meet, but it was very relaxed and inviting. I think I might get asked on a play date sometime down the road. Not sure how to handle that.

And I have found a great non-chain ice cream place. Think for a moment. The best ice cream memories don’t come from Cold Stone or Dairy Queen. They come from the neighborhood places. And a lot of those places look about as clean as a concession stand at the high school football field. Over the Top in the Des Moines area is clean, bright, professional and NOT A CHAIN.

Well, that’s all I have for you at the moment. Sorry, no theological ponderings today. I have some percolating right now, as my remnant of prior readers can attest I always have theological thoughts in my head.

All in good time. For now, I’ll leave you with laughing.
