Sunday Matters: Still Plugging Along

Sunday Matters

Hello! As you can tell from my posting schedule I am still out of sorts health wise. I considered a total break from the blog but it’s the end of the year and you know, there’s still a reading goal to make and some reviews to write. So here I am just doing my best and that’s okay. Just know that my posting may be erratic and depending on the day, may contain a lot of chatter.

Right Now:

I am heading out for my volunteer gig which will keep me busy until 1pm or so. Then, a nap on the couch and an early dinner, whatever that may be.

This Week:

I have my knee MRI this Tuesday.

On Wednesday my book club is meeting for dinner and a book exchange. We normally meet at someone’s home but we are meeting at a restaurant this year. Should be fun.

Reading:

Not a thing. All this medication I am on makes me queasy and gives me a massive headache. I said this exact thing last week and it still applies this week but perhaps I am turning a corner because reading sounds appealing to me now. I will review my review copies and library holds and see if anything jumps out at me.

Watching:

Not much. Lining up the Christmas “must-see” movies so we can get to them before Christmas.

Grateful for:

  • It’s kind of silly but I was really getting into Bible journaling before COVID but I left all my fun pens at work. Well, I just bought new ones so I can journal again from home. I am grateful for all the fun ways to journal these days.
  • Root Beer, the cat. This is the feral cat that my son adopted in Kansas. She has provided hours of entertainment and companionship for my son in that small, dusty little town of 1200 people.

Have a wonderful Sunday and great week!

Sunday Matters: Me, Over Here, Living

Sunday Matters

I’ve been missing for awhile so I will keep this brief while giving you an update.

  • On my first day of vacation I had to go to the hospital. I am better now but not 100%. Kidney stones and a damaged kidney are no fun.
  • The kids spent Thanksgiving in Kansas City which was good, but it felt really weird to not have them with us. I did get to rest a lot though.
  • Because I was so out of it I couldn’t even read. So what is normally a big reading week for me was spent without books.

Right Now:

Almost time for me to head to student ministry. The rest of the afternoon is wide open.

This Week:

I see the physical therapist this week. My knee was much better until I tried to get up, unassisted from a small child’s chair at Friendsgiving. LOL. I am falling apart.

Reading:

Not a thing. All this medication I am on makes me queasy and gives me a massive headache.

Watching:

We have been dipping in and out of La Brea. One more episode. It’s just okay in my book.

Since I’ve been in pain and not able to sit still for long I keep flipping channels.

Grateful for:

  • Good pain management.
  • Time off.

That’s all I have. Have a wonderful Sunday and great week!
