Well, it is now. I’m feeling completely overwhelmed by my own global behindedness. Here’s the deal: I have this. I don’t really like to talk about it, nor do I really need a “take care of yourself” speech. It’s fine, I live with it, but sometimes it makes me just have to lie down and I really don’t have a choice in the matter. Monday and Tuesday of this week, I had to lie down. I lost two days and all I accomplished was developing an addiction to Lost, which I’d never watched before, but now all three seasons are streaming on abc.com, so I got into it. All that to say, I’m behind.
I looked at the preaching calendar on Thursday – hi there. I’m preaching on February 10th. That’s in two weeks. I know, I know – I was at the meeting. But I knew I was preaching on the first Sunday of something, I just thought it was “March.” Turns out, it was “Lent.” Yikes. Next weekend is our worship team retreat, but fortunately, that’s a lot of conversation and not a lot of prep is necessary.
Work is crazy. Not bad, just a lot. The office move is next week and we’re all getting ready, but the work hasn’t stopped and so it’s non-stop. Losing two days of course doesn’t help.
My house also needs some serious attention. I have un-built Ikea furniture, paperwork that needs to be filed, a ballot to fill out, cleaning to do and episodes of Lost to watch. This weekend will be all about the recuperating, cleaning, nesting and organizing. I’ll be fine.
