A slick and polished mess.

Especially after 2 weeks. Things have started looking up a little bit. Here’s a rundown of the updates. The possum did manage to climb out using the board the morning following the last post. We heard him clanging around 4:00 am and haven’t seen him since. We called Nebraska Furniture Mart back after the last e-mail. This time, the lady who answered knew all about it: “Yeah, we’ve just been telling everyone to bring those back.” So, we took it back and got credit for it. We decided to go with a name brand this time. It cost us more money we don’t have, but hopefully it’s an investment for the future.

Christmas went well. It was great to see my parents. Got plenty of nice presents. My wife outdid herself with a trifecta: a weight bench, a fitted size 7 7/8 NU hat (yes, my skull is huge), and she surprised me with an iPod shuffle.

Check the hat

The iPod’s been giving me crap since day 1. I’ll give it one more day to get its act straight before exchanging.
All in all, things, while not necessarily looking up, have leveled off. Disaster has been averted. Again. God is good. He’s got this bad habit of helping me put things in perspective and saving me from myself In an act of intense originality, I will again close this one out with someone else’s words. My eyes have been opened.

Comatose – John Cooper
I hate feeling like this
I’m so tired of trying to fight this
I’m asleep and all I dream of is waking to You

Tell me that You will listen
Your touch is what I’m missing
And the more I hide I realize I’m slowly losing You

I’ll never wake up without an overdose of You
I don’t wanna live
I don’t wanna breathe
‘less I feel You next to me
You take the pain I feel
I don’t wanna sleep
I don’t wanna dream
’cause my dreams don’t comfort me
The way You make me feel

I hate living without You
Dead wrong to ever doubt You
But my demons lay in waiting
Tempting me away
Oh how I adore You
Oh how I thirst for You
Oh how I need You
