-a good day-

Today was a good day. And an eventful one, for a snow day. Since our church was cancelled for the weather, and we were in pretty dire need of groceries, we visited a church in Hazard. It’s really something to sit in a congregation with people who worship differently than you (I didn’t know a single song!) and who may have different priorities than you…. but who believe the same basic truths. It was a very good and encouraging morning – also it was nice to have an excuse to just be at a different church. Sometimes I feel like we miss out on a lot by tying ourselves down to one little body of believers.

Not that I’m doubting that decision. I also feel like it’s really important to be a solid member of a church group. But every time we visit another church, I leave thinking, “Wow. I could totally be a part of this group. I wish I could have my cake and eat it too.” Β I guess that’s a good thing.

For lunch we went to the new Chinese buffet in Hazard. It was a nice change from the one in Jackson where we usually eat. Not necessarily better – just different. They had sushi. I tried some. Again. Okay, so the only place I’ve ever eaten sushi was at Chinese buffets. Tell me this: do Chinese buffets serve low-quality sushi? Or do I just not like the stuff?

And our final stop was….. Wal-Mart. The kids each bought a fish, and they went in together to get a filter for the fish tank. So we now have a fish tank in our living room, right outside our bedroom door. I’m wondering if the sounds of water trickling through the filter will lull me to sleep or drive me crazy and keep me awake.

    I really don’t like sushi either. I don’t think buffets would have the best but it’s just not something I enjoy.

    Japanese restaurants have much better sushi. I think the sound of a fish tank would make me have to go to the bathroom all the time! πŸ™‚

    Ryan makes sushi…it’s pretty good. I don’t like raw fish on it, though. πŸ™‚

    I really miss our fish tank! It lulled me to sleep, definitely. I think it did take some getting used to for mommy and daddy…..I was, like, 7 when we first got it. πŸ™‚ But I remember one night trying to go to sleep when the electricity was off, and we all thought it was way too quiet without the fish filter.

    And the only sushi I’ve ever tried was by accident, and I really didn’t think it had much flavor.
