NIPTO, Day 178

Driving school? Here. (I passed my test and don't have to go back, if you don't want to actually read that.)
Hung around this afternoon, watched last week's So You Think You Can Dance results show on Hulu... watched interviews with people from Psych. They're funny! Uhm... ate dinner, jogged a mile (!!), stretched, did the warm up and cool down of The Biggest Loser Yoga thingy majig. I ♥ Bob.
Annnnd then I took a shower... took the dog for a walk up the street, watched So You Think You Can Dance... didn't fiddle with Hannah's camera that she got today. Makes me realize how beat up my camera is. But I love it nonetheless. It means that it's well used and loved. :)
Now Hannah's fiddling with her camera/being quizzed for CLEP.

I'm babysitting tomorrow morning/afternoon... Hannah's taking the College Algebra CLEP.
Annnnnd it's 1 day closer to when Katie will be home! =D (It's officially under 100 hours! (91 hours, to be exact))

Annnnnd yeah.
Not quite. Dad was reading my blog and he pointed something out from yesterday's post. Peter was about to go on trial (his friend James had already been killed, remember) and he could be sentenced to be killed and he was sleeping. I wouldn't be sleeping. Good point, Dad! =)

Acts 12:19b-25
Then Herod went from Judea to Caesarea and stayed there a while. 20He had been quarreling with the people of Tyre and Sidon; they now joined together and sought an audience with him. Having secured the support of Blastus, a trusted personal servant of the king, they asked for peace, because they depended on the king's country for their food supply.

Okie-dokie. Herod was in Judea and he decided to go to Caesarea and stay there for a while. So he did. He'd been fighting with a couple of countries... Tyre and Sidon. Tyre and Sidon joined together and went to Herod. They were tight with one of Herod's servants... so they asked for peace... cuz they needed Herod's food. Hah.

 21On the appointed day Herod, wearing his royal robes, sat on his throne and delivered a public address to the people.22They shouted, "This is the voice of a god, not of a man." 23Immediately, because Herod did not give praise to God, an angel of the Lord struck him down, and he was eaten by worms and died.

So on the day of the audience with Tyre and Sidon, King Herod puts on his royal robes and sits on his nice big throne and gives a speech. And then they're all like, "Woah! This isn't a man. This is the voice of a god!" And so Herod got proud/high&mighty for all of about 2 seconds, didn't give glory to GOD, and then got smited and eaten by worms. And then he died. Eek.

 24But the word of God continued to increase and spread.
25When Barnabas and Saul had finished their mission, they returned from Jerusalem, taking with them John, also called Mark.

Despite the... nastiness of that, the story of Jesus continued to spread. Barnabas and Saul(Paul) finished what they came to do and went home(?) from Jerusalem. And they took John-Mark with them.

I know, not terribly exciting today. (Except for Herod getting eaten by worms.... heh. Gross.)
I should sleep though... babysitting tomorrow. BUT I'm DONE WITH DRIVING SCHOOOOOL!
