Hey everybody! I am going to head to bed early tonight because I have to wake up at 3:30ish tomorrow. I am getting ready to head to Seattle with Allie and spend some time with my parents and old friends. Our plane leaves at 7:30 and its an hour drive to the airport we are leaving from. I am excited and ready for an eventful week. I hope the anxiety doesn't keep me awake since we have to go so early. Pray we have a safe trip! For all you West coast friends reading this... See you in about 16 hours! Night!

This morning I had to wake up earlier then normal and get to church so I could prepare the Powerpoint that I didn't get a chance to do yesterday. I ended up getting to the church around 7:30 to get that all taken care of. The service ended up going very well and we actually had a good number show up today. Tori and Jonathan were there today too. Its been awhile since I've seen them so Allie and I went out to lunch with them today. That was pretty fun! After lunch Allie and I headed over to Dorothy's house because she was going to cut and style her hair. Allie looked amazing after Dorothy did her thing. She always does a great job. She even gave me a trim while I was there too. Apparently I needed it pretty bad. =) After leaving her house we came back to town and stopped in at Barnes and Noble for a little bit and read some books to kill some time. After we killed sufficent time however Allie took me back to the church so I could pick up my car and I headed home. I decided to start packing a little bit tonight for my trip to Seattle coming up on Wednesday (Three Days!) Then I just read a little bit and worked on some stuff here at home. But I think I"m actually going to head to bed slightly earlier then usual tonight. I've been pretty tired all day. Night!

Andy came back today. It was nice to have him back at work again. It was getting hard making fun of Jason all by myself.. it was nice to have some help again. =) After work I went flying again. Nothing too special happend this time though it was mostly just review of stuff I had done before. I did fly for part of the time with what they call a Hood.. it makes it so I can't see outside, all I can see is the flight intruments. I know I am over the throwing up thing from air sickenss though because if I survived that... that means I'm over it. While I had the hood on the instructor took over and got the plane into an "unsual attitude" so basicly we could be in a dive going straight down in a slight spin and I had to recover from that with the hood on. It was actually not as hard as it sounds though. That was probalby my favorite part of the day. After I got done flying I just came back home and cooked myself some dinner and worked on reading a book and some fincial stuff tonight. Anyway that pretty much covers jeremys life as of today. Come back tomorrow for jeremys life as of tomorrow. Same time... same place... Be there!!!

Today at work I had to do a service call. It just so happend to be fairly close to where Allie works, so after I finished what I needed to there I stopped in really quick to say hi to the cutest girl that works at the AACC. It was fun to do that. They actually had some left over hot dogs from lunch and they shared with me. So that was a nice little bonus. Anyway the rest of the work day other then that was pretty typical. We had to get the shop ready for Andys homecoming tomorrow as well. Not like we had to do much.. but we just emptied garbages and vacuumed and stuff.

This evening was great though. It was declared "guy night" with Jonthan and I. I went over to his house and he cooked some dinner (which was delicous by the way) and then we rented Braveheart and relaxed and watched that while eating Icecream all night. It was the first time I had seen that movie and I thought it was excellent. Over all we had a great time just hanging out and talking guy stuff. I'm back at my apartment now as last night was my last night at Andys. But my good ol place here was just as I left it and I was ready to come back I guess. Anyway I probably should get headed to bed now. Still have work tomorrow and I am going flying after that. I want to have the energy for both. So Good night!

Today after work I ended up going over to Scotts house for dinner. It was pretty fun since I hadn't seen him in quite some time. Abbey made some kind of breaded chicken dish (was really good though) and biscuts and mashed potatoes. After eating Scott told me I could call Allie and invite her over for a little while too. So after she arrived we all ate some strawberry smoothies and played some cards for awhile. It was a pretty good time. We ended up leaving shortly before 9:00 though because Allie needed to use my laptop phone to make an international call to Wagner in Brazil. The call ended up lasting for over an hour though so I kind of just read and called other people with my own phone while she did that. I couldn't understand a thing she was saying because it was all in portugues though. Anyway it was still cool to let her talk to her good friend in Brazil. After she got off the phone with him.. we taked and disscussed the book we are reading together for a little bit. But we didn't really have that long since it was so late already by that time. Anyway, overall it was a good day. I had a good time.

Today I woke up early and I got to take Allie to work this morning. It was the last time she would need a ride to work (hopefully) since she got her car today. So that was a great way to start off the morning. After dropping her off I went to a quiet place to have my devotions before going to work for the day. Things at work today were actually the buisiest Jason and I have had so far since Andy has been gone. It was nice.. but challenging at some points. I had to leave to go do a service call today too. We ended up managing ok though and the day came to a nice close in the end. After work I killed some time checking e-mail and reading a book while I waited for Allie to call. We were going to watch the second Star Wars movie tonight at her house. So around 8:00ish I ended up getting to her place and we watched the whole thing. It was longer then I had expected though and it didn't get over until a little after 11:00. It was still a good movie though. I had fun tonight. Now I'm back and Andy's place for the night and I had to take care of the cats and tonight was "change the litter box" night so that was a nice chore to take on this late. Anyway.. I'm ready to head to bed now. Good night to one and all!

This morning seemed harder then usual to wake up and get out of bed for some reason. I had to fight it with all my will power to throw the covers off and crawl out. After I finally accomplished that feat I prepared for the day and headed to work. Things are still kind of slow though lately and it gets boring sometimes just standing around. The day finally came to a close and I was ready to head out. I had the privledge of picking up Allie from work tonight and hanging out with her for the evening. We met up with Jonathan after that and we picked up some pizza for dinner. Then the three of us came over to Andy's house and we watched Star Wars #1. It was pretty good. After the movie was over I ended up dropping Jonathan off and then Allie and I headed to LU campus to pick up Han Tan. I hadn't seen him in awhile and wanted to hang out for a little bit. Allie Han and I ended up just going to WalMart for a little bit to pick up some stuff and then I took them both home. Oh also I should probaby mention that I got pulled over by a copper tonight. He let me go with a warning but apparently I was going 68 in a 55.. Honestly I don't think I was.. I think either my speedometer is off some or I speed up at a perfectly bad time and I didn't pay attention to it. I was going around 8mph over last time I had checked myself though so he still could have got me with that I guess. Not sure where the 68 came from though. Anyway it doesn't really matter now.. I'm greatful he just gave me a warning. Ok well yeah.. I think I should head to bed now. Tired I am!

Today was pretty cool. I ended up going flying after work and I did another solo session. This time I had to fly out over the city and so some manuvers and stuff. SO I had to figure out how to find out where I was and then return to the airport. It all worked out pretty good. I had to practice doing stalls while I was up there also and the Stall warning was broken on the airplane. So I would be waiting for the stall buzzer to tell me I was close to a stall but it would never go. So I would reach the break point and just start dropping unexpectedly because the buzzer never went off. So I had to figure out how to recover from a stalling spin and stuff. That was not a good feeling but it was great knowing I did it! It was nice to just fly around on my own too. Afterwards I ended up just going to my house for a bit to make some food and gather up some things before I headed to Andy's for the rest of the night. It was fairly relaxing evening and I didn't really do much the rest of the night. Just checked my e-mail and kept dozing off while doing that. Its time for me to head to bed though because theres no point in me doing anything else if I'll be asleep while doing it. Night!

Welp... look at the days that went by before this blog showed up. I was going to blog yesterday but the website thing went down so I didn't end up doing it. Other then that though I just plain forgot or was too lazy. Yep sleep came first.. I try to uphold to the rule of "sleep first" that my mom and girlfriend and sisters keep telling me.. then what.. I get yelled at by people saying hey you need to blog more quit sleeping.. I mean common make up your mind or something =)
Anyway this weekend has been fairly good. I had a lot of time by myself though Jonathan was busy all weekend and Allie was out of town. I ended up getting a lot of reading done though. I finally finished this book I've been trying to finish for quite awhile now. Today was pretty nice too. And by the way.. Happy Fathers Day... Our church had a service focusing on being a Godly man and father. It was pretty good. Then afterwards the pastor invited me over to his house for lunch. We watched a bunch of funny homevideos of his family over the past years.. then we ended up watching Napolean Dinamite. I wasn't able to stay the whole way through though because I had to leave early and pick up Allie from her dads. I just got back from doing that and spending some time with her upon our arrival back in lynchburg. I went and took her to a place to eat then we went out for some coffee at Starbucks. It was nice to have her back. We also went to look at a potenial car for her. If it works out she might even buy it tomorrow. I really liked it and It would be perfect for her. Anyway.. now that I'm back at Andy's house I need to go take care of the cats and then I might possibly do some laundry. Then I'm thinking about just doing some reading again till I fall asleep. (will probably be fairly soon after that). So anyway Tah Tah For Now!

Lately my blogs have been kind of hit and miss and I keep missing days here and there. Not like you're missing all that much though. Yesterday night, however, was pretty fun. I ended up going out for coffee and a movie with Allie and we both had a good time. We did that after church. Also for the next week I am going to be staying at Andy's house "cat sitting" while he is on vacation in Oregon. One thing nice about that is that I will get to have high speed internet while I'm over there. The internet at my house has become increasingly annoying. SO anyway that means I won't be avaialbe on my webcams for awhile. All you'll be seeing there is empty rooms. Anyway I decided to blog a little early today so I could make sure and get it done before I forgot. I think I am going to just read now until I fall asleep. Night!

Today was a pretty cool day. I ended up going flying again after work today and I did some more solo work again. The instructor was only in the plane with me for the first 10 minutes. After that he got out and let me practice the rest of the lesson by myself. I think I did pretty good too. The wind was pretty calm so I didn't have to practice cross wind stuff (Which I had trouble with Saturday). It was basicly just smooth flight the whole time. I still had a good time and learned a lot flying by myself. It was pretty cool. Other then that I ended up just going back home after that and hanging out at my house for the rest of the night. I cooked myself some dinner then worked on the computer a little bit. Its time for me to go to bed though I'm tired once again. Good night!

Today I had to run the shop mostly by myself for the better part of the day. Jason had to leave early and Andy is out of town. Things were fairly slow though so it didn't end up being too bad. I managed to get a good amount of stuff done. After work I headed to the airport for some flying lessons. Today I learned how to navigate from airport to airport and we did some flight to and from each. The hard part today though was landing at each because there was some fairly high crosswinds going on. I still need to work on coordinating the rudder peddals with the wingtip alerons expecially during windy conditions. If it wasn't for the wind today I might have been able to fly some more solo.. but that didn't happen. All my studying I did this week though payed off for the post flight ground check though. He asked me a bunch of questions and I finally had all the answers for him. It was pretty good. (Thanks Allie for helping me study). After the flight I ended up going over to the Donnebergs for the evening and Jo made a nice dinner and I enjoyed it thouroghly. Then we just lounged around and watched some movies. It was a good relaxing time. Ok well I need to wake up early for church tomorrow so I got get to the land of squish. To bed I go!

I went out on a date with my beautiful girlfriend tonight! It was splendid! We went to "La Plaza Alegre" in downtown. They had one of her favorite foods (Yucca) and she loved it. It was another great opportunity to talk and get to know her even better. All through the evening I realized even more how extremely cute she is. You just can't beat quality time with my Allie. **instert giant grin here**

Today was Jonathans Birthday (9th) So after work I met up with him and some of his family and we went to see "Kingdom of Heaven" I thought it was a pretty good movie. It was hard to follow in some areas but for the most part it was enjoyable. So it was pretty cool to hang out with my buddy on his birthday. Other then that the day was fairly blah.. work was typical and after leaving the movie I just came home to study a bit. But now that I am tired and can't really concetrate anymore I'm off to bed. Night!

Sorry I didn't get a chance to blog last night.. I'm not even sure what happend as to why I didn't.. but I'll quickly say I ended up going flying again last night after work. It was kind of fun this time because we did simulated "Missionary work" type stuff. I had to do a simulated soft feild and short field landings just like I would if I had to land in a missionary pilot environment. Other then that my instructor kind of got after me because when we were doing the ground dissussion he would ask me general questions and I would keep getting them wrong. I just really need to do all the studying along with this.. there is just sooooo much stuff to remember.

So anyway today after work I came home and tried to get some studying done. I did get a bunch of stuff looked over but I by no means have it memorized yet.. (And I worked on it all for about four hours tonight). I then decided to quit for the night and fix my stupid telphone line again. We had another lightning storm last night and it made my internet connection all screwed up once again. So thats partly why I'm going to bed so late tonight..I am tired now though so I am headed to bed. Good night!

Good day today.. church was sucessfull and we had a pretty good turn out. I then had a delicious lunch served by the lovely Mrs. Donneberg. Afterwards we made a stop at the hospital and spent some time with RJ. Allie, Jo and I then ended up going to help a lady from our church by delivering to her house a washing machine. That all seemed to work out pretty well. On the way back from there the three of us stopped by my house for a bit so I could show it to them (Jo hadn't seen it yet). Upon arrival they wasted no time getting my AC unit working (I haven't used it since I got here). It was cool to show them around my "pad" we didn't stay too long though, and we just headed back to thier house for the rest of the evening. Over all it was a good day and It was nice to relax a little bit tonight too. But anyway.. I think I'm going to turn in for the night. I be outa here!

I had to work today until 3:00, but after that I was free the rest of the evening. I ended up going to the church after work to finish up working on powerpoint stuff for sunday. While I was there I ended up calling my parents and wishing my dad a happy birthday. We ended up talking for over and hour between both of my parents. It was pretty good. Once I got done talking to them I then was able to finish up the powerpoint stuff and get a few other things done I needed to there. Sometime between getting off the phone with my parents and working online a little bit I think I ended up passing out for a little while. I was working up in the loft at my church and it was 110 degrees up in the little box room I work in. I think sitting in that tempurature for two hours with no airflow finally got to me. I ended up coming back to.. and decided I better head out. So I went and spent the rest of the evening with my Allie. We ended up going to hang out at a park for a little bit since it was a really nice day and we talked about a book we are reading together. After that we ended up going to the hospital to visit Allie's "Brother" who has been having a few physical issues. So keep that in your prayers.. his name is RJ. We ended up leaving the hospital around 10:00 tonight and decided to get somethign to eat. It may sound strange but we ended up getting teryaki fast food at 10:00 at night and chowed down on some good Japanese Food. Then I just took Allie home.. and before I left she made me promise I would go home and before going to bed I would drink an entire bottle of water. So now I'm almost done with this stupid bottle of water.. (after working on it for like 40 minutes) and I am going to turn in for the night!

Yay! I finally got new pictures up online. I have brazil pics, plus extras from friends and ones of Allie and I. Take a look www.jerdill.com/photos -- you can click on some of the pictures and watch video as well. Anyway today was over all a basic day at work. I stopped by the church for a little bit tonight and worked on powerpoint setup for sunday and then afterwards I ended up spending the evening with Allie and her mom for a little bit. We went to Waffle house for a bit together then Allie and I just hung out for awhile at the house. It was great fun! You would never think something like "potty spot" would be so funny. Oh.. but it is!! We had fun talking to my mom for awhile online as well and she told about her "eye mishaps" and stuff. It was a pretty fun evening. I have to wake up for work tomorrow morning though so I should probably get to bed now. Have a great night!

PS. Happy Birthday DAD!!! (acording to my watch it is now.. even though you still have another hour =)

Hey.. looks like I was up late again tonight. I've been working on adding more pictures to my photo album page on my website but I didn't quite get it fully finished yet tonight. I think I should be able to get done in roughly an hour or so next time I try to work on it. I just had lots of pictures to add this time.. I think there are about 200 or so I need to put up. Anyway I am pretty tired now though so I should probalby head to bed. But first I wanted to say that I hung out with Jonathan this evening and it was pretty fun. Jonathan is a pretty cool guy. We just watched a movie and had some good quality "guy" time. It was nice to relax and do that for a few hours. Ok good night world!
