BEDA 28, 29: Blog Almost-Every-Day in August

    I have no regrets about missing a post yesterday. Life happens. In fact missing a post makes me feel more like the kind of person who is too busy making appearances and socializing and generally having a life to spend a significant portion of every evening telling the internet her oh-so-important thoughts. I wish I could tell you that I spent my time here in San Antonio helping the less fortunate, or writing, or generally being productive, but I've honestly been extraordinarily lazy these past couple of days.
     Saturday I spent the day riding water slides, swimming, going to parties and eating amazing food. After a breakfast of (what else?) bean tacos, Dad, Rachel and I drove to New Braunfels, home of christmas "shoppes", the Comal river, and intoxicated tubing. My sister received free passes to Schlitterbahn, a German-themed water park in New Braunfels, so we spent most of the morning and afternoon pretending to be eight years old again. It was fun to relive childhood memories at the park and laugh at the ridiculous psuedo-Germanness of everything. Their strategy mostly involves adding "berg" to English words and making everything a "haus" or "shoppe." The rest of Saturday involved a nine year old's birthday party (with BATMAN MOONBOUNCE) and fantastic salad and bruschetta and too much food.
     This morning I worshiped at the church I grew up in, only not really. My sister and mom now attend a service led by a different worship team and pastor, so it felt like an entirely new church. After years of attending smaller churches in the city, I'm not used to the mega-church environment anymore so it felt a little overwhelming. My experience this morning also reminded me that I'm an old lady when it comes to my worship style. Give me hymns over hardrock4jesus any day.
    Then I worked out, swam laps, and ate an ungodly amount of tater tots. I'm pretty sure I shortened my life span by a couple weeks with those tots.
   I fly back to New York tomorrow and though this visit felt too short, I'm excited to get back. I miss Graham, and my ballet classes, and In-Sight. Thanks for bearing with the sub-par posts this weekend. As BEDA winds down, I hope to leave the blog in better shape than it was at the beginning of the month: more discussing stuff that matters.

Until tomorrow.

  1. I don't think I fall into either of those two worship styles (well I lean more towards rock, but the stuff a lot of it is hymn based). It's reached the point at my church where we forget to sing any songs, becuase we get too into it and it just becomes instrumental, with the occasional lyric repeated over and over again.
