I can't believe how worn out I am, considering I didn't even work Monday! This has been an incredibly intense week, and now I need to write a speech for the pres and go over our volunteer policies for next week's training session (otherwise I'll have to do it this weekend). And I need to catch up my April time tracking or I'm gonna be screwed. Next Friday financial forecasts are due, and that's gonna create some stress around here.
Jenny heads to Mexico for much of next week, Rich is off today for his birthday, the 'boss' is out on family business, and it's strangely quiet. Stormy weather is moving in for the weekend, meaning no compulsive driving around, I guess. I need to do bills (what, again?!!) and clean out old magazines and sleep.
Yesterday went so well. Lineup in record time (90 minutes for the first phase, then we didn't have to make one change). I felt like I was moving slowly and changing my mind a lot, but it meant the thing laid out perfectly in the end. I had a crowd, mostly folks doing nothing but standing around watching.
Orientation ran long, but I was impressed with the girls. They are sharp! I left at 7:30 and Jenny and Peter were still here.
I hope you never lose your sense of wonder, You get your fill to eat but always keep that hunger, May you never take one single breath for granted, God forbid love ever leave you empty handed, I hope you still feel small when you stand beside the ocean, Whenever one door closes, I hope one more opens, Promise me that you'll give faith a fighting chance, and when you get the chance to sit it out or dance, I hope you dance!
I hope you never fear those mountains in the distance, Never settle for the path of least resistance, Living might mean taking chances, but they're worth taking, Loving might be a mistake, but it's worth making, Don't let some hell-bent heart leave you bitter, When you come close to selling out, reconsider, Give the heavens above more than just a passing glance, And when you get the choice to sit it out or dance, I hope you dance!
