Yesterday & Today

It was a long day yesterday, first day back at work. I'm not going to lie, usually when I'm on vacation I check my work email EVERYDAY because it's less to come back to and a LOT less overwhelming. Helps me because then it's not so crazy. Unfortunatly, I never got a chance to look at my work email (or home email for that matter) all week, so there was a lot waiting for me. Ugh. Now, don't get me wrong, I like my job, a lot, but it was very overwhelming. Not to mention that my dinner plans were canceled (which, really isn't big of a deal) so my day did not go as I had hoped.

I had to check on getting a new phone or get mine repaired because my charge port (where you plug in your phone) is broken. You know how much I like to talk on the phone? LOTS! I thought I was up for a new phone... nope... it would have cost me about $200 to get a new phone. Instead I opted for the $35 option of getting it repaired. Honestly, I like my phone, it's not fancy, but i like it. It works well. How many times do we get talked into the next best thing because someone convinces us that's what we need. Nope, I just need my phone, repaired. So Wednesday I go, and it will be all taken care of (they had to order the part).

My house is a mess because I had to seperate the mission trip stuff from my stuff (that's how we go so cheap - I bring EVERYTHING including the kitchen sink!) so I finished my sorting, now I just have to return what belongs to Alive/Fuel back to the church. Thankfully Phyllis ran the dishwasher so I had less dishes to do (you know, I don't wash the dishes, they stay in the sink until there is a space in the dishwasher for them!)

Because my plans were changed, I did some work around the house, ate dinner (leftovers from Sunday and a salad) and laid down on the couch to watch a little TV (believe it or not I do miss General Hospital but I'm not going to go back) and fell asleep at 8PM, woke up at 9, not knowing what day it was, where all the kids were, and finally snapped out of a sudden panic (must have been some crazy dream I was having!), and then went to be, slept right through my alarm and woke up at 6:30 (which I was late).

I don't know what my funk is today, but if you think about it, say a prayer for me.

Today, more work around the house, some cleaning to do (floors and laundry), making grilled chicken and pasta primavera I think for dinner.

Psalm 20:4 May he give you the desire of your heart and make all your plans succeed

Returning from vacation is always a bummer for me. I so dislike the work of settling back into my daily routine and getting all my 'stuff' put away! I'm reading this rather late in the day, but please know I have alredy whispered a prayer for you and will continue to do so as the Lord brings you to my remembrance. BTW, thanks for stopping by my place and leaving such a loving comment. Praying your day only gets better!

Many hugs..............

It always takes a few days to recover from a trip and a missions trip takes so much out of you too..then there's the jetlag....24 hours for ever 1 hour in the time changes. Don't expect too much from yourself.
