Good Friday Reflection

Go to dark Gethsemane,
ye that feel the tempter's power;
your Redeemer's conflict see,
watch with him one bitter hour.
Turn not from his griefs away;
learn of Jesus Christ to pray.

See him at the judgment hall,
beaten, bound, reviled, arraigned;
O the wormwood and the gall!
O the pangs his soul sustained!
Shun not suffering, shame, or loss;
learn of Christ to bear the cross.

Calvary's mournful mountain climb;
there, adoring at his feet,
mark that miracle of time,
God's own sacrifice complete.
"It is finished!" hear him cry;
learn of Jesus Christ to die.

~Go to Dark Gethsemane Montgomery/Redhead

What to do when your spouse (accidentally) tries to poison you?

Based on a true story...

1) Don't ignore the strange taste in your tea.
----Why does my tea taste funny? What is the greasy coating making my mouth water?

2) Identify the strange taste if possible.
----Dishsoap! My tea taste like dishsoap. Bleh...

3) Call home for poison control information. (If you think it anything but accidental, maybe you want to call someone else.)
----Hey honey, can you read the back of the dish soap bottle and tell me if it lists any poison control information? No? Well, does it say anything about ingesting? Okay, I'll keep drinking lots of water to thin it. Just wanted to be sure that I didn't need to induce vomiting or anything like that.

4) Double check that it was an accident.
----So, you know that mug that I was irritated about you leaving your dish brush in at work? Well, turns out the soap hasn't come out of it. Yeah, you go ahead and laugh, it tastes gross. Yeah, you'd better feel bad about it.

5) Drink plenty of fluids (after inducing vomiting if necessary).
----CHUG! CHUG! CHUG!

6) Milk it for all it's worth when you get home.
----I can't believe you tried to poison me. All I wanted was a nice cup of tea cause I wasn't feeling good and then it tasted funny. I drank more thinking it was just that I felt worse than I thought, but no, it was dish soap. I can't believe you thought I needed my mouth washed out with soap. Trying to poison your poor wife at work...

For those concerned...all parties are alright. And I guess that it can't be all bad since he did do the dishes. =)

Love you, G.

Travelling Shoes

So the month of March was a bit of a blur for us. I've been working on a temp assignment for the past few weeks, Greg's on the bench for a while but due to that was able to travel to Atlanta to serve as an Advanced Java instructor, and in between we traveled to the Cove for a Bridal shower, DC for a Bachelor party and Lingerie shower, met friends at Rock Bottom in Arlington, hosted some friends to break in our guest room, and generally threw Freyja into a fretting frenzy as she tried to figure out a 'normal' schedule.

Good times in all. However, as April has started with snow flurries instead of flowers it will be interesting to see what it has in store for us as the month goes on.

Temping

Started my first temp assignment today. Can't say that I'd really like to work there long term, but it will do for a month. =) To clarify, I feel that the work will easily get boring and the location is a bit rough for an aesthetic person to handle. That said, the people are extremely nice and friendly and I'm going to get paid, so all in all it works out.
