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.
I am AMAZING.
(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!
