Sunday Evening Musings

I don't know what it is, but I struggle with this posting on the weekends. I totally forgot to post yesterday. All I remember is laying across the bed last night thinking...

I need to go do a quick post before I fall asleep.

Then I fell asleep. I don't even remember falling asleep.

For some odd reason, I sleep like crap during the week, then I catch up on Friday and Saturday nights. This is beginning to make it a bit difficult to plan much of anything for my Friday nights and Saturdays overall.

By Sunday I am back to being erratic in my sleep. Sigh. I need to put myself on some type of schedule, I suppose.

This was an unusually quiet weekend. I ran whatever errands I needed to run on Friday evening so I wouldn't be ripping and running on the weekend. I went to church on Saturday night, which did wonders for me. I am spoiled now that I can stream church.  I may have to get back into the habit of going on Saturday evenings again. It just did a lot for my heart.

I scribbled some notes on the back of an envelope. This week I will be evaluating myself in my journalling concerning the following:

1. Do I look to other people to satisfy my needs?
2. Do I blame others for my present circumstances?
3. Do I get upset with people when they don't help me in a way that I think they should be helping me?
4. Do I find myself routinely asking myself the question "Will I ever have enough?"

I think I will go back and read through this year's journalling to see if some of that is present. I don't think it is, but we will see. If I need to make adjustments, I need to get on it.

Today it rained cats, dogs, and frogs. I opened the windows and enjoyed the sounds of hard rain and the cool air. I managed to get some writing done during this time. I wrote some 1700 words, which is a lot since my goal is around 500 words at a time. I guess I was feeling particularly creative today.

This is going to be a hectic week, though. Maybe I should not think of it that way... Everything will fall into place. I have a doctor's appointment in the morning. I could skip it, but I am not. I haven't been in some 10 weeks, so I have to keep that regular appointment. Besides, I like running out to the suburbs. Gas is 80 cents/gallon cheaper out in the suburbs. I fill up my tank every 3 weeks, and I am only on week 2, but when I top off my tank when I am out that far. I have been caught downtown twice this year rolling on fumes... and I have to get enough gas to allow me to drive some 20 miles out for cheap gas.

(This is a high class problem. Yes, it is).

I also have to train someone new in our lab on a method I'm responsible for. I feel a little selfish because it cuts into my personal lab time and I can't work at my own pace.

But alas, I will get through that... as again, it is another high class problem.

I think it will be a good time. I am a great teacher.


(That is something that I have been telling myself all week. It gives me great joy).

That's it for my Sunday Musings.

And I need a good Sunday piece of gospel music.  Here is one of my favorites at the moment.

That's a choir for you there. They had to practice to get all of that right. They would've put me out of the choir for getting my alto parts wrong!


  1. LadyLee You ARE an AWESOME teacher !! This I know!!

  2. Lonnie Hunter and The Voices Of St. Mark. . . yes. Before he started, he took off his tie!
