I survived Saturday just fine. Sunday, not so much. In fact, everything was going well Sunday until I started in on packing the last box for Afghanistan. This one will race his departure date to get there. If it arrives before he departs, he gets to drink the coffee. If not, he'll have to come share mine while his replacement drinks the coffee and eats the jerky and crackers.
Anyway, somewhere in the process of packing that box, and thinking about the cookies I sent in the last one, something snapped and I mixed up my last stick of butter into cookie dough. A small batch, mind you... but I got myself started down the road I don't like the end of.
So, this morning, back to rational behavior. The blood bank at noon... success in donating, which makes me feel good. And on with the rest of my life.
No beating myself up. But back to remembering what I really want, remembering those things I cannot control (like whether my son gets the job he wants back here stateside), and letting God do His own job!
So today has been a good day, and now we look forward to the first Winter Storm of the season... can you believe it's this late? Predicted for Wednesday. Droughts are nasty in some ways, but they have kept us with safer driving conditions for a longer time. Now it's time to settle in to Winter for sure.
Spark on, friends near and far! Life IS good!
