Let’s see, Wednesday through Sunday (today)?
Work, work, skipped small group because I was tired and wanted to be home. Work, got cranky on the phone with Jim.
Saturday I woke up around 10:30 to get to Midway Airport by 12:35, when Jim was supposed to fly in. Well, I didn’t leave the CU area until 11:15 which made me, oh, at least 45 minutes late. Turns out there were some fierce thunderstorms around Chicago, and his plane had to take the “long way around,” which meant I only circled the terminal three times before I met him. Talk about good timing!
Because Midway is so close to my mom’s (and because Jim is such a patient guy), we visited with her and her new “boyfriend” for a couple hours. We helped her move a dresser up to her guest room (no small feat) before heading back down. We did meet aforementioned thunderstorms, but we weathered (haha) most of them at the house.
Fast-forward to today.
After lots of sleep we made it to church (yay!). It’s been a while for us. We sneaked in late, sat in front, then reseated next to some friends. It was a good message about worship. My communion cup had a bug-floater-something in it. I felt a little guilty for not drinking it, but eww!
After a lovely stop at Starbucks, we headed home to attack the cleaning of the house. I wrote a blog post about a book my therapist and I are going through, and we made bruschetta chicken pasta, sans the chicken, a la TGIF. We had tomatoes and basil from the garden (seriously, is there anything that smells more pleasant than basil?), balsamic, pasta, and olive oil (including a new jug of olive oil straight from Italy–Jim went there with his mom a couple weeks back). Small win for not having to drive to the store!
And I was going to run, but lordy–90 degrees with a heat index of 107? No thank you. I’ll try my bets tomorrow morning.
Do you go to church? Do you like your church? What keeps you going?
