i am going home.
i am currently quite exhausted. and not fully packed. and i am not going to leave my house clean like i had hoped.
will my house ever get vacuumed, i wonder.
however, my dishes are almost all washed, and my fridge is empty.
i will be gone two weeks.
i will be at the church i was chrismated in. i will see God willing, the new icon of Christ in the dome of my church.
my family is not orthodox; it is so hard to be a convert and not have your family understand why you want to go to vespers and liturgy!
one of my close friends is taking care of Cleo - she is going to visit Cleo while i am away.
i plan on driving while at home - i have not driven in winter (i.e. snow) and it has been quite the saga just convincing my family that at 30 years old i really can drive in winter.
i love my family very much.
and i get to see my Godmother.
i will be missing my spiritual father though, and my church.
i hope to be going to a monastery while i am home.
please, if you would, pray for me.
