My life as a surrealist

You ever have one of those moments, where you are like: whoa, am I really doing this? and you have to poke yourself and wake yourself up, to remind you that this really is YOUR life. I've been having that ever since I went skiing over break. That was probably the craziest thing because you are like flying down this mountain and all you can think about is when your next fall is going to be and how you are going to make it to the end, and then you stop yourself and actually THINK about what YOU are doing! I"m on the side of a mountain and this is gorgeous, and this is crazy and this is ME! Then it was the same thing, just being here! in New Mexico! and then it was exploring Lava tubes, and then seeing a volcano, and earlier this week, get this: I was subbing for 4 hours! Just me and the kids for 4 hours. yikes. (don't worry, it went well :) And then this morning we went to the flea market which was like a ghost town because of the snow. Yeah... sooo much snow here! That's another surreal thing too. I'm in New Mexico and it's snowing! This is MY LIFE! Here's another crazy thought: the art teachers here will most likely not be teaching here next year. So this could be my life NEXT YEAR! I can't even think that far ahead!

I can hear you saying that whole post very excitedly. I can hear you in my mind! Eeek! I had that same experience today, driving home from school. It was actually sunny today and I could see the mountains and I was like, "Whoa! I'm finally in Washington! And I'm on my way to being a real live grown-up!"

Hey Becca - i just got done reading all your stuff here and it sounds like God's working in some real evident ways! That's pretty awesome! and it's always great to see how things come together...but it always seems to be God's timing. hmm...wonder how that works. :)

Yeah, why does life seem so weird sometimes? And so fun? I guess because we have a cool God. Good for you for jumping in and subbing and learning the culture. I'm so excited for you!
