The State of the Me

Oh my goodness the dreams last night.

So, I decided to skip the Mat last night. I was having weird tummy, but it didn't turn out to pull me to the facilities often enough to justify staying home. So I basically played hooky. Bad me.

I haven't been doing my homework in No Stones, or reading the curriculum for Life Group. I've been blowing off daily inventories due to wanting to redo the spreadsheet. I've missed the Mat for many weeks due to health and parties. I go to sleep with plans to have a nice quiet time in the morning, then I sleep in, and scurry to my first deadline of the day instead. I'm tired, but I'm getting more than 8 hours of sleep a night.

Yeah, depending on me not nearly so successful as depending on Him.

On the bright side, this past week I caught up on dishes, laundry AND bills. I've still got filing to catch up, and a bunch of phone calls and the like, but I've gotten to a great starting point for the summer.

I'm serving with the younger twos on Saturdays at 5:55pm and Sundays at 10:22am throughout the summer, so I've got a commitment pulling me to church regularly. At least I'm not drifting all the way away in this drifty interlude.

I've been spending good time with Flar in the evenings, and I'm really liking that. I worked Sunday night and Thursday night this last week, but I've trained on the new software for scanning now, so I expect to get more hours starting next week. I got a raise at my annual review, and in order to support more transfers per month (than allowed by a savings account), I've opened a checking account for direct deposits from work.

We're going to DC for the July Fourth weekend, then Houston to deliver Critter to school in August, and otherwise I'm home all summer. I should be able to get to projects with all this time on my hands.

Quest at the Movies is starting this weekend, with Die Hard or Live Free. Free popcorn and movie clips with interspersed teaching. Tune in live at Quest's website. The service times are Saturday: 5:55pm and Sunday: 9am, 10:22am and 11:55am.
