i feel like the white rabbit

Hi guys and gals!

  I totally got the whole "I'm late! I'm late! I'm late for an important date!" vibe going on for me this morning.  So of course I stop to write a blog post.  I just have so much I need to do today, so many projects that I need to start (some of which have been back-burnered for far too long), that I've felt like I'm late since shortly after waking up.  I'm not to the point where I'm anxious about it and need a Xanax or anything, which is good, but I do need to get it under control.

  None of these things absolutely have to get done today, but several of them do need to be done soon.  For one thing, my office is slowly spiraling out of control again, and I need to reign it in before it gets out of hand.  Partly because it just needs it, and partly because some of the other work and projects in the queue will require the use of my desk which is full of plants and assorted junk at the moment. 

  I put off taking down my Christmas tree a bit long than I normally do since I put it up so late, and I really need to get it torn down and put away.  I love looking at it, but the longer it is up, the more nicotine and dust there is on the ornaments, and there's just not a good way to clean them.  I just wish I could throw it in a bag, ornaments and all, and have it ready to go in 5 seconds a la the Grinch.  Taking all the ornaments off the tree and packing them away does afford me the opportunity to admire some of my favorites one last time before next Christmas though, so I'm sort of looking forward to it.

  I've also got to get my butt in gear on having my records transferred so my transition to a new set of doctors goes smoothly.  I have an appointment with my new GP in a few weeks, and I need to make sure I have all my ducks in a row.  Mostly just so there's no interruption in my medications. 

  Add to that a few projects that are "due" in the coming weeks that I at least need to begin, and I've got a pretty full calendar!  I've signed up to lead Bible study on the 27th of this month, so I have to get my lesson going.  I also signed up to cover the Communion meditation for out February contemporary service.  I know where I want to go with that, so it's just a matter of getting my references in order and getting it all written out.

  I've joined a few teams at church, and while I'm excited for the possibilities it affords me, I do want to do my part effectively so it's important to me that I start off on the right foot and not feel like I'm a step behind from the get-go.

  Speaking of which, we're exploring starting a gospel choir at church, and one of the first tasks is to find a "director" of one sort or another to lead us.  If anyone has any leads (or interest) to help point us in the right direction, please contact me!!!

  Our church is taking a lot of bold steps in the coming months, so keep out congregation in your prayers.  Particularly our church leadership, who will bear the brunt of any missteps. 

  All right gang, I really do need to get my hiney in gear.  I just wanted to check in and say hi!
