It's my niece's birthday, for one thing. My FIRST niece! I have two (so far) and this is the first child of my generation in our family. My brother now has a teenager in his house. Wha ha ha ha ha ha!
Today, I have a baptism meeting, a final bible study, and a car to pack. My sermon is drafted. All the food we can imagine cooking is cooked. And we even did the laundry.
No services for me today, but I have to make sure that EVERYTHING is locked and loaded for the next four days. That means finalizing two sermons. I'm a pro. I can do this! (Hell, yeah, I took today off the gym to give my feet a rest.)
M made a yummy noodle soup for dinner. I picked up a sorbet for dessert, when I dropped off a quilt for cleaning. That's responsible, right?
I sent M to bed because he was REALLY tired- tired enough that he did not want to fold the laundry at all. He was started to randomly click through shows and movies on Netflix.
I had zero inclination to sit on the couch for an hour folding while he aimlessly clicked channels and fought sleep. So I sent him off to bed and he grumbled and groused, and as of now, he's been sound sleep for nearly 2 ½ hours. I'm off to join him shortly. EXCEPT I'M A TOTAL NIGHT OWL AND EVEN PLAYING ALL THE CALM SLOW MUSIC IN THE WORLD CAN'T CALM ME DOWN ENOUGH TO SLEEP! WHOOO! PARTY PRIEST!
Yeah. It's a good thing I have a fairly flexible schedule, because this night owl thing would BITE if I had an early shift all the time!
I've always been glad M and I like to go camping. It was a fun vacation in our early days. You, too, should go camping with your potential spouse. When we used to go camping, I would see how he behaved at the end of a long walk day, and I figured out early on what he's like when he gets tired. Sometimes I don't mind hanging out with a sleepy guy.
But today, I really needed clothes folded, and I wanted to get it done before all the wrinkles set. This girl needed her undies and clergy shirts ready for this week! So I had the living room to myself and watched TV while folding, and then did a few boring financial things. I paid off one bill and started working on the budget for this coming month. I bet you can't stand excitement!
I have more to do. But I'm in a good place this minute, right now.
