"Hello? Is anybody out there?"

Sorry, guys. I am alive. A couple weeks ago we started preparing for Andy and Yannick's arrival from The Swiss Land and then they got here and then we were busy being together and things of that sort all the while our internet on our destop went hay wire and is not yet fixed. I feel alienated form the world, in a sense, and don't even know the weather forecast! (I don't really gather my weather info from the tv anymore...) I can't google, I can't blog, I can't email. You know, all that sort of thing.

Well, how 'bout we use this valuable time for something useful. I would like some input.

I am in charge of a women's retreat next year and the theme is "Survivor". These are women of many ages so keep that in mind with your crazy ideas. I thought of hidden "immunity items" that win you a prize. I thought of asking everyone to bring a "luxury item" to share with the group. I thought of only trying to incorporate food items that they would encounter or have provided for them. Tiki torches outside, a definite must! What else?

If one of your "challenges" gets out of hand and an old lady gets her shirt pulled on, will there be one of those fuzzy circles to cover up the things other people aren't supposed to see.

Ben if only you knew what kind of stuff happened in the hot tubs of these so called "retreats". I still have nightmares...

Here's an idea Jen, what about having everyone bring a sowing or knitting project they've been working on. You could all then work on them together, give feedback, and share your ideas. It doesn't have much to do with Survivor, but you know they'd all enjoy it!

Everyone could knit their own buff. You know, some could knit one to wear as a tube top, others might need it to hold their hair back...still other ladies may want to use it as a mini skirt...buff's are so versatile.

Hey Jen it has been forever since I have seen you, I found your blog through browsing. My sister in-law was in Africa with Brian and Tracey and so she has them linked to her blog. Anyhow I love your blog you are very creative. I just got started into blogging, I am not as creative as some of these I have seen, and I never seem to have enough time to sit as I would like, someday maybe :) I enjoyed reading your blog I'm glad I found it.

One of my greater concerns in Xianaity is our quickness to "vote someone off the island" when they don't speak Christianeese or dress right or know what the unspoken rules are at any particular church.

Wendage? Wendage?
