Ok, admit it… you missed me yesterday! I know you did. 🙂
So, why didn’t I post? Did I want you to suffer? Was I passed out on the floor after imbibing too much? Nah… I went to the 13th annual Eucharistic Congress for the Archdiocese of Atlanta, came home and kinda “hung” for a while, went to evening Mass and then nearly fell asleep watching reruns of one of my favorite Britcoms.
It wasn’t exactly a day to write about, but it was the falling asleep part that kept me from posting anyway. On a night when I’d probably be ‘closing’ the store and not getting out until about 10, I was in bed by 9:45 and probably asleep by 10. I put on a podcast and the timer and never heard the program turn off.
As a result, I was awake before the sun came up this morning but managed to keep myself in bed until 7:30 when I stumbled my way to the computer to put a post on my parish Facebook page then stumbled back to bed, eyes still partially closed. I had also not posted to Facebook as I’d promised yesterday.
Pope Francis had asked that all us Catholics spend an hour in Adoration today, the Feast of Corpus Christi – the EXACT SAME HOUR worldwide. That was 11 AM to 12 noon here. I thought that would be a nice thing to do, so I had a quick breakfast and 2 cups of coffee then went to church for an hour of prayer. Yes, I prayed for every single one of you. You’re welcome.
I prayed for a real job – a good one. I prayed for my 2 nieces and their families. I prayed that my mother would get back into her house soon. I prayed for all my cousins and their families, the members of my church, my Red Hat girls, my Facebook friends (in particular those I went to grade school, high school & college with), and the people who I remember fondly from my previous job.
I should be cleaning the kitchen, but I don’t want to. I should be emptying dead things out of the fridge, but I don’t want to. I could be taking a nap, but… I don’t want to. In all likelihood I’ll probably go out on the deck for a while. We’re supposed to be getting some rain, and I should take advantage while the sun’s a-shinin.
So, one week into the freedom-fest, and I’m breathing easier, I’m less tense – someone even said I was “looking better” the other day. I’m certainly getting more sleep!
Be back tomorrow. I have a lunch meeting planned so maybe I’ll have something “thrilling” to write about. Otherwise, you’ll just have to read more drivel. 🙂
