“Sometime” or “120 hours and counting”

Well, I figured after about five days I’d write something again. You’d think with me having not worked the past two days that I’d make time to blog…but I didn’t.

Anyway…here I am in Pigeon. I pulled in about 2 a.m. last night. The last hour was killer. I drove at night because I didn’t want to loose half my Wednesday to driving; so I left after small group last night. But, when you arrive at a place at 2 a.m. and get your eight hours of sleep, you essentially…lose half of a Wednesday. I could have left at 7 a.m. this morning and essentially accomplished the same thing…and been a lot less groggy doing it. Oh well.

I’m now plodding along on a dial-up Internet connection. Thankfully, blogging and checking e-mail doesn’t take a lot of bandwidth. But I think my parents pay-per-minute online, so I probably shouldn’t abuse it much.

I took this week off work. I’m not really "on vacation" per se, but I am away from the office. I was planning to do a mini-tour of west Michigan’s coast for a vacation a few weeks ago. But I eventually decided that I couldn’t afford it. Camping can be expensive when only one person is paying!

So, I pushed the vacation back a few weeks and opted for my parent’s house instead. Keyword: free.

I have a few things I want to accomplish these next few days:

  • spend quality time with God
  • finish The Chronicles of Narnia book #2
  • lay out a business plan
  • work through the CSS training book "Eric Meyers More on CSS" (it’s a Web design thing)
  • Begin reading Erwin McManus’s "An Unstoppable Force: Darning to Become the Church God Had in Mind"
  • take some pictures

When I take a step back, I realize that’s quite the list. So…I better get started.

P.S.: I’m seeing U2 at the Palace in less than a week. And I’m seeing David Crowder in GR in less than a month. STOKED!
