I have been sort of busy. I wasn't home for long a single evening last week. Stuff going on every night between running errands, working, family stuff and worship team rehearsal. My time is going to be cut severely, indefinitely pretty soon. They are moving my shift at work from 8-4 to 9-5:30. I HATE HATE HATE HATE HATE that shift. Did I mention that I HATE that shift? Whenever I get scheduled for that shift I invariably fall into a pattern of getting up later and losing that hour in the morning as well as the extra time in the evening. I am NEVER out of the kitchen before 7 or 7:30 in the evening. I am so bummed. I spent most of Wednesday and Thursday in tears. I even considered closing my business because I already don't have the time to devote to it that I should, now I have even less free time to devote to it than I did. I'm not going to, yet. I am going to try and utilize the time in the morning, but I don't know how well that will go. I've tried it before, unsuccessfully. I was told, it could be 6 weeks, 6 months or 6 years, that I could be on this schedule, no one knows how long it will last. I'm not going to hold my breath.
In other news, I did manage to finish my mom's quilt yesterday. I hope to get some pictures made of it and post them here for you all to see soon. I still need to wash it and dry it. Hopefully this will be the breakthrough I needed to get busy on some other projects that need done. I spent four hours cleaning my house on Saturday, so it doesn't need a lot of cleaning right now. Hopefully it will stay that way for a while.
I wanted to ask you all if you would think about my sister, Janet, today. She is having surgery at 9 this morning. She's having a gastric bypass. They also found some sort of tumor when they were doing her pre-op tests, they think it is benign, but they still wanted to biopsy it. They did the biopsy last week, and depending on what they found it determined whether they could do the surgery lapiroscopically or if they would have to open her up. I haven't heard anything more as the last time I talked to her was Friday night. I'm hoping it's good news that I haven't heard anything else. So, if you could say a little prayer for her today, I'd really appreciate it, and I'm sure she would, too.
