Looooooooong Week

I don't know why, but this week has felt really long. I just feel exhausted, yet I don't want to go to bed yet. I'm just enjoying some tv and computer time. I'm also trying to keep Mia company since I was gone most of the day today and Scott's gone this weekend.

Well anyway, I am excited for April to be over. April has always been a weird month for me. I'm not particularly superstitious, but it seems a lot of bad things happen in April. For starters, it was the month in which my dad passed away. And then it just seems that other negative things happen during this month every year. So now I'm excited that we're almost to May! May is a good month, full of spring weather and flowers and sunshine. I'm looking forward to what May has to bring.

Currently, though, I'm looking forward to what my head will feel like on my pillow. Yay!

Learning to Slow Down

Sometimes God teaches us lessons that we don't want to learn. One of my recurring lessons is my need to slow down. And it seems that right now is one of those times. And the way God is teaching me this lesson is through sickness. Apparently I have a sinus infection, along with no energy, extreme sore throat, and overall ickiness. So now, I am being forced to slow down and not do all the things I need to be doing. I didn't go to work today - went to the doctor's office instead, then back home to rest. And I realize some people love having a day off from work, but honestly I would love to be back to work if I could just feel better.

Well I guess that's all for today. I'm just trying to figure out how to apply this "slowing down" lesson to my everyday life... when I start feeling better, I still want to take time to enjoy life and family and friends.

We spent this past weekend in Boston for a youth group leaders conference. All went well, except that I apparently came down with something on Friday and it hasn't left me yet. I haven't been sick in quite some time, so having the headaches last week and then this cough/throat thing this week is not very fun. I am just praying that this will be short-lived and not last all week.

So, if you think of it, pray for me... And to youth group kids, sorry I've been MIA two weeks in a row. I really wanted to be there tonight!

Oh, and I'll be posting more about Boston sometime soon. I've got a GREAT video that I want to post. It's so funny!
