Was ordained Sunday the 16th. Preached Thursday and Sunday the 23rd. Really need a nap. Finally came off the high on Saturday and have wanted to sleep for the past two days.
But I leave tomorrow for children's camp, my least favorite part of ministry. Don't tell them. It's just so draining and I'm going in empty...
On a lighter note (for you), I managed to burn my finger on the iron while ironing a shirt to get my picture taken for the church directory which of course turned out hideous due to the laws of nature and church photos. My first official photo as a singleton: also a bonus to the week. The burn did blister, but it doesn't hurt too bad. So I guess that's a plus.
And I mowed my yard again for the second time but only after I got into a fight with the lawnmower. I discovered it just wanted to be cleaned and so I sprayed it with a hose and that seemed to make it happy and want to work again. Another plus. Course by that time (three attempts later) it was midday and hotter than hell. My face got all splotchy like it used to when I used to try and run. Horrible idea. It took my face an hour and a cold shower before it finally turned its usual shade of pale nothingness.
Speaking of the heat, I also managed to overheat my car. It turns out that you're supposed to pour anti-freeze/coolant into the car every year, but of course no one told me that so when I arrived home friday evening, my thermometer was pointing above the H and when I got out of the car I could hear things boiling under the hood. The next day (after the fight with the lawnmower), KC put a whole bottle of anti-freeze in the radiator and then another gallon of water before it filled up. I guess it was really dry. He was shocked. I was grateful.
What a week. Did I mention that the reverend needs a nap?
Maybe I'll get one in next week.
