catecumen: (spinning)
Logan insisted on waking me up at 7 AM, so maybe I should be going to church this morning. I do have quite a bit of work to do today, but I can go to church in the morning while the other humans in the household are still sleeping and still get the other work done this afternoon.

I think I heard a message for me yesterday, when I stopped by Northway Church in Clifton Park on my way home from visiting my mother. The stage of my life in which church has been a spectator sport for me needs to end. As much as I enjoy Northway Church, it's just too far away for me to be anything other than a viewer and consumer of church-as-entertainment. I can't really get involved and participate at a church an hour's drive away. If I'm going to do church at all, I need to get back to one of the churches here in my own local community, where I have at least some ongoing real-life involvement with people.

I promised myself not to return to St. John's Episcopal Church until at least September, when I have satisfied an obligation to someone there, but there is still the option of Church of Christ in Gloversville as well as the option of going back to Fulmont. Both those services are at 10 AM.

Hmmm, decisions, decisions. Now where did I put the one bible (out of the dozens I own) that I'm particularly looking for this morning?
catecumen: (freaks me out)
I probably should be trying to finish my memorandum of law on a grandparent visitation issue this afternoon, but I'm distracted with trying to plan for a trip to Georgia with Jess in mid-June. She is traveling back to Georgia to attend her mother's wedding, and I'm trying to arrange things so that I can go with her. By sharing the driving in my car, we can reduce time and expense. In order to make this trip, I need to arrange to reschedule a couple of court cases, make sure that Ken's needs can be met adequately while we're away, and, of course, make sure that I will have enough money for food, gas and other travel expenses.

I've been wanting to take an extended road trip for a long time. I've been as far south as Virginia, and I have flown to Florida for a family visit to Disney World back when my niece and nephew were very young, but I've never driven as far as Georgia. I think it will be a lot of fun, but it's going to take more planning than I would usually do to get two people, two dogs and all the necessary stuff for a week into a relatively small car, as well as making sure that I'll still have a husband living here when I return. :-) Luckily Jess is a very efficient planner, so I will have expert help!

Not only have I gone blonde, not only do I now have a dog, but now I even have a nighttime skin care routine.


No wonder they call it "the change of life." :-)
