Today’s been a full day and it’s only half through. I keep meaning to post to the blog here but life keeps intruding. We are trying to work things out to get the elusive Donna home to spend some time with her dad and so far every plane, train or automobile that we’ve checked out will require a huge bite out of the budget plus present some logistical nightmares. Meanwhile I’m working on a sinus headache that is approaching the same level of pressure that Mt. St. Helen’s worked up to just prior to the eruption.
I just had a young adult stomp, and yes, I mean that literally, out of my office and let me know that my attempts to help have successfully driven him away from me, the church and probably God. He’ll let me know for sure later.
As my friend Tim was fond of saying in the old days of dorm life, “Some days you get the bear and some days the bear gets you.” Today I’m feeling like the grizzly is closing in.
On a lighter, yet no less important note, last night I was home having a geekapalooza with back to back episodes of Doctor Who on the CBC and then watching the first episode of “Chuck” and the new season of “Heroes”. My inner nerd went to bed very satisfied last night.
At the moment however, every attempt to write something down only causes the brain to cramp even more. In a couple minutes I’ll be meeting with the young adults mom and explaining to her how I’ve just driven her son away, etc. And I’m hoping to figure out how we’re getting Donna down to Cinci (about 30 hours away by auto) in the next few days.
I’ll try to produce something of interest for tomorrow. In the mean time, check out Easy Silence for some good reading.
