Saying good-bye, and other things…

Today was the first of many good-byes to be said in the coming months…my parents came down this weekend to pick up my old car (as I am buying one from my aunt and uncle), to help me pack stuff to ship to PA, and to take my rabbit home with them… ๐Ÿ˜ฆ I have had Casey since August 2005, and I love that rabbit! He’s been such a faithful companion, and I am going to miss having him around. I am so thankful that my parents were willing to take him with them, even though my Dad wasn’t too excited about it ๐Ÿ™‚ At least I know he’ll be cared for and loved!

I know that it’s going to get worse as the next 71 days come and go. So many goodbyes, so many memories…

People have commented that it seems like I’m not sad at all to leave Glendora, to leave Southern California. But what they don’t understand is that I can’t be sad yet. There are too many logistics to arrange to move cross-country, too many details to focus on…a mission trip to lead (in 20 days!)…I just can’t think about the good-byes. When I get back from New Orleans, I will allow myself to be sad, to reminisce…

In other news…I have 14 days of work left. 14. What an amazing number! I have had great experiences during my time at ADP (two years), but I am ready for a new challenge. And I cannot wait to see what God has in store for me in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania!

There has just been too much going on for me to focus on blogging lately, but I’ll try to be more consistent in the coming weeks. We will have a blog for our New Orleans team, and I will post the link on here so that you can read about our adventures!

Back to packing, etc… ๐Ÿ™‚

My bunny…

Casey, my two year old rabbit, has heat stroke (which is the leading cause of death in rabbits)…and last night I wasn’t sure if he was going to make it through the night. He seems slightly better this morning, but still doesn’t seem to want to drink water…

It seems strange to ask for this, but if you could pray for my rabbit, I would really appreciate it. I love my bunny, and it’s kinda my fault that he has heat stroke (since I didn’t get an ice bottle into his cage in time yesterday)…

And the rabbit’s name is…

Casey! I decided to name him after the famous Casey Jones. I was going for an “Old West” kind of name, and this kinda fits. The name certainly fits my rabbit, though I’m not sure why.

Casey is happy in his new cage, though I still have to teach him how to drink out of the water bottle. ๐Ÿ™‚

And I have to teach him that when I allow him to run freely on the grass, he needs to allow me to CATCH him again! I spent 30 minutes trying to catch him, and only did with Mindi helping me to corner him.

Yay for rabbits!

I Got a Rabbit!!!

Yay! I finally got my rabbit today! I don’t have a name for him yet, but will by tonight or tomorrow morning. He is ADORABLE! ๐Ÿ™‚

My Labor Day Weekend was fabulous! I spent it in the Eastern Sierras with Mindi and her family, and it was amazing. We camped, fished (I caught two! Well, actually 4, but two broke off my line), went driving on dirt roads, exploring old ruins and stuff. It was awesome! I’ll post pictures later.

Yay for my rabbit!
