There is definitely an ebb and flow to my life, where certain times everything is crazy and I can barely keep my feet moving fast enough to keep me from falling on my face, and other times (mostly never) when things slow down. Right now is one of those - almost falling on my face - times. Here are some of the things I have done in the last week:
organized/ran weekly church youth night
began final year of grad school
read 400+ pages for school
wrote two papers for school
finished 9 different projects at work
wrote/submitted 17 proposals
held a sleepover/beauty bootcamp for 15 youth/leaders
picked 14 lbs of raspberries
made raspberry pie
made raspberry butter
made raspberry jam
fed/entertained 10 people for Sunday dinner
held interviews with leaders
visited a few women from church
cleaned my house
hosted my father during all of this...
And so on and so forth. There are other things, wrote letters, answered 89 emails in a day, paid bills, etc but when I got called lazy yesterday, it was all I could do to hold my tongue and simply say that I don't believe that its true.
So tonight, I take a small break and go see this guy
He is more than the desire of every pre-teen girls heart. He's got some fabulous stuff out there. Stitched Up with Herbie Hancock, the father of jazz hands piano. Or any number of his Trio work. I'm hoping for a few gems to take away from tonight to keep me going during all of this craziness.
