1. Gas prices are really starting to affect my driving habits. And not just how much I drive, but how I interact with people. I find myself saying “no”…or at least thinking twice about traveling to be with people because of how much it’s going to cost. I’ve never been like this. I’m determined to overcome this.
2. I got up this morning and completely forgot that I was playing in the band today. I went about my normal Sunday routine…totally oblivious to the fact that the band was doing their thing in the auditorium before the service and I was nowhere to be found. You would think I would be a little more focused on my big day.
3. Wanda’s pretty certain that Jack Bauer was the one that led the Navy Seal raid on Bin Laden. Her 24 withdrawal is a bigger problem than I realized…
4. Lakers. ’nuff said.
1. Got my new iPad2 this past week. It was a tough decision, but after a lot of research, conversation, comparison and advise-seeking, I’ve made the commitment to shift my writing (blog and sermon) to a different medium. After years of growing comfortable with my trusty Sony Vaio, I’m going to have to get on a new learning curve. After the first five days, I can say my frustration is manageable and I’m optimistic that this experiment will eventually be a winner. (Warning. There are going to be some “thumbs down” in the near future. I can feel it.)
2. The little Mavericks were so good today, I’m pretty sure they would have just called a mercy rule after the first half, if they would have been playing the Clippers. I’m officially on the “Jose Juan” bandwagon. Wanda wants to adopt the little guy…
3. I am so grateful to be part of a church family that is comfortable being a square peg in the round hole of churches. I spent many years of my life in churches that expected little sermonettes on motherhood every year on the second Sunday in May. It’s pretty inspiring to me to be part of a group of people who are neither offended, nor disappointed, to hear a sermon about becoming living sacrifices on Mother’s Day! Wow.
4. Speaking of Mother’s Day…I can’t imagine there is any man who is married to a better mother than I am. I will not extol her greatness here. It will embarrass her. But I’m right.
