…when you don’t permanently work somewhere.
I am currently awaiting further instruction and information regarding a few projects that I have been commissioned to work on. Amazingly, I have had about three hours’ worth of work to do today, which is up from the 20-30 minutes I did some days last week. Good news for me, especially when I didn’t get a full 40 hours in last week and I won’t be around next week.
Why not? You might ask. I’m going to camp (yay!).
I’m going out to help out for the week and then I’m coming back for the week leading up to Laura’s wedding, which includes several exciting but not-yet-planned activites. There is so much to do when it comes to weddings.
Honestly, I just want to hand most of it over to someone else and have them deal with the details. Sure, I want to have a say in things, but I don’t really want to put in the legwork. We’ll see how that works when I do get married – I might care more than I think I will. I hope not, but we’ll see.
Tonight, I’m going out with Laura and Emily for a girls’ night. Andy is going to be our driver (which I’m sure he is just thrilled about).
Other than that, life is pretty bland. I finally finished my quilt, sang with the worship team yesterday, and continue to try and catch a live version of Chris every few days instead of his voicemail while he’s in New Orleans.
Funny boy. I sent a package to him this morning. It’s contents? A copy of the USA-Italy World Cup game from last Saturday. He wanted it; I sent it.
What can I say? I’m just a sucker, I guess. That happens when you miss someone that you love. Oh well. I don’t care. I’ll be happier for it in the long run, so it doesn’t really matter what anyone else thinks.
I’ve been learning a lot lately, for sure. I started Beth Moore’s study on Daniel and have almost finished the second week. The different things that she ties in are so appropriate for where I am right now and it has been such a blessing.
And I finished “Whatever Happened to Worship” by A.W. Tozer, of which the last two chapters are pretty mentally challenging. Good stuff, though. Good stuff.
Today, I have laminated a project that I have been working on for a while now. I also managed to “find” time to organize some stuff into binders and send out a bunch of emails. My boss is gone through Wednesday, so there’s even less to do than normal. I had to solicit various people in the department to see if anyone had anything for me to do.
Gotta go deliver the laminated deliverables now. What a life I lead!
