END THIS!

So, I wondered why I hadn’t heard anything lately about the hostages taken by Boko Haram in Nigeria. From the silence, one would think they were not longer in captivity. That is not so. They are still missing and new captives are told that they converted to Islam and are now happily married. This is almostly certainly false. How long does this need to go on before the world at large moves to stop it? Regardless of your faith, what this group has done is WRONG. All peoples should be hunting the kidnappers down and putting them away. #bringbackourgirls

The Switch-Up

Today’s “big reveal” at work turned out to be not so big. 😦

home again; well, sort of

Last Thursday, IRP moved back home. There was “too much drama” at the friends’ house where she was staying. We, of course, were very happy.

Unfortunately, IRP had to go back to the hospital Monday with an infection and an intestinal blockage. The doctors had a tube put in to drain her stomach and the blockage has untwisted itself. The area is still distended, though, so she will be in the hospital for a bit longer while it shrinks nearer to the normal size. This will help prevent a recurrence.

There will be no update on the weight-loss campaign due to the confusion as a result of these activities.

oops!

Well, now there is only one large jar. The other met with a fatal accident. The good news is that the jelly was fairly solid even though it was not completely cooled.

bring on the peanut butter!

The grapes have all been processed and I am the proud producer of two large and eight small jars of jelly. There would have been three large jars, but one broke in the water bath. This happens from time to time, but I do regret the loss of the jelly. Since FMP does not like things to be too sweet, I did not add as much sugar as is usually used. So, the result is a bit tart. It looks like the jelly is the right consistency, but I will not know for sure until it is fully cool and we open a jar. If it doesn’t jell correctly, we will just call it syrup and put it on pancakes.

One large jar will be staying here and my parents will get the other. The rest are going to work for my co-workers. I called IRP and she will be coming by to get one of them as well. At least she is speaking to us now. I hope she will eventually see that we were only doing what we thought was best for her.

Having Done All,…

…stand.

Well, IRP somehow convinced the staff at the hospital that she was okay. So, they discharged her. She refuses to come home and doesn’t want our help.

All that is left for us to do is pray. And, that is what we are doing.

We love you, IRP, no matter what. And, we are waiting for you to come home.
