Just by the amount of gunk lining my bathroom sink, you can tell I have been too busy in the last three weeks to do anything of housekeeping or blogging excellence. I will save you from photographic evidence thereof.
I have worked some at a local office (through a temp agency) where I have worked previously. They are nice folks and I like helping them out. Still, working puts a crimp on other things like laundry, cooking, and other essentials.
Dear husband made it through the holidays at the World’s Largest Retailer. His schedule has shifted back onto mostly days and will get more Sundays off. [YAY] He will even get a raise soon for sticking it out longer than 90 days.
My mother’s health is not so great. She has had bronchitis since Thanksgiving, combined with lung cancer makes for racking hacking day and night. The coughing has calmed some…but it has lead to the Drs. taking another x-ray which confirmed a new cancer spot on her other previously unaffected lung. Please continue your prayers.
We had a great first Nativity celebration at the Orthodox church. Standing for 6 hours out of 24 in church is a marathon of weight-bearing proportions. I felt like I accomplished something just being there and paying attention. 🙂 We also received the Catechumen’s exam (open book) from our priest to help us prepare for baptism. We’ve got a way to go in order to answer it. A young man was baptized last Sunday. He is going off to college so the priest wanted him to be set. I love baptisms! Intensely serious and beautiful, like a birth.
Ok, the day stretcheth forth before me…but before I get to scrubbing out slime from the bathroom sink…I’ll give you a taste as to what I want to write/video about this month:
- Long hair – Do I have it?!? How do I care for it and do it up?
- More catechumen ramblings on video.
- Sewing and knitting projects.
Making my to-do list and checking it twice…
