I did something neat yesterday though. For the first time I can remember in many many years, I did no work related to my job yesterday. Nothing. Well, I read my email but I didn't answer any of them ... I don't think. And I didn't check voice mail or work on any projects. It was pretty incredible when I got to thinking about it. I could get used to that.
Of course, I was up at 3:30 a.m. yesterday and I did end up going into the office in order to prepare for our monthly Leadership Community gathering at church. But I do enjoy those meetings greatly and that was good.
Enough of my pity party.
This is our big week for Lisa. Her surgery is on Friday. The outpouring of love, prayers, support and encouragement has been huge. Still, sometimes it's hard on both of us. Several times I have found myself tearing up just thinking that, even though the prognosis is incredibly good, we really are up against the big C. It's pretty intense.
Anyway, we spent a little time at the lake today. Lisa and I pulled a 25' tree with about an 18 - 20" base out of the lake that was causing some problems for us. Not bad for a fat old guy and someone waiting for major surgery. Now it's got to be cut up ... after it dries out.
And, tomorrow, it's back to work ... and trying to keep up if not hopefully catch up at least a little.
School starts this week for Evan on Wednesday. Lisa's been very busy with her job as well. Thanks, everyone, for your prayers.
