Some things have happened. Let’s begin with Friday:
Jonathan came home from work. It was Friday night and neither one of us wanted to stay home. We drove to Sanford hoping to find someone to hang out with. First we went to Christi’s, but only her mom was home. No one was home at Ryan and Amy’s house so we went to Cheryl’s. She was home. Her and Adrienne were going to do something, so we tagged along. We went to Cary, near Raleigh and ate out at the mall and walked around. I joked around a little bit and it seemed to upset Cheryl. She is not the same Cheryl. Perhaps I am not the same Jacob, either. But I very much feel like me.
I bought a tape on my Discover card and we came home. Jonathan saw an old gas sign by the dumpster and we went and picked it up. He and I had more fun unscrewing that sign from it’s post so we could fit it into his car than we did walking around a strange mall with Cheryl and Adrienne.
I worked Saturday morning. That night, Kevin and A.D. and I went to see a movie in Asheboro. We saw Die Hard with a Vengeance. It was pretty funny and full of action, but I hate all of that cussing.
Church was wonderful on Sunday. It was great to hear Pastor Steve preach. After church, Jonathan and I went to a girl’s house named Faith. Mandy and Dana met us there. We all decided to go to Jordan Lake. I know while we were at the beach, I thought Mandy was ugly, but seeing her yesterday, well, she seemed quite attractive. I guess I do see what Jonathan sees in her. They appear to be doing great!
We picked up Faith’s boyfriend Chris on our way to the lake. Overall it was a good time and it’s good to know that those girls will be around to hang out more often. Thank you for them Lord.
Jonathan met Mandy at Myrtle Beach in October of ’94. Dana is single like me. We get along okay. They showed us the pictures from the beach; they looked great!
Jonathan and I returned in time to go to church that night. I went into the youth group just to see the old gang, but it isn’t the same group of people anymore. I wonder if there is anything more fleeting than a church youth group.
And today, Monday, I went to work. I had a great time. Mike was there and we joked around the whole time. Time flew by, and it’s great to know that I get paid to have fun. Thank you Lord for my job.
And I came home to find a letter in the mailbox from Emily. It was short and sweet. She gave me a little heart to put into my wallet to remind me that someone loves me. I’m sure that someone is her.
Mike came over and he and I plus Jonathan and Nate played water guns outside.
Big kids. That’s all we are.
I wish I could see Emily.
I wish I could hold her.
