I hate to let my blog go too long without an update, so here’s a short entry. I’ve had a lot going on, but not really much to write about. Things are busy at work and I’ve had more to do in the last few weeks than I’ve had in several months, which is good. My “Lunch & Learn” sessions have been going very well, and I’ve gotten good feedback about them. A couple of projects that I’m in charge of are about to be complete, so that’s a good feeling.
Yesterday was a fairly relaxing Saturday, aside from a trip to Sam’s Club to spend way too much money. We were out of so many things around the house, and since I like to buy in bulk (to save trips to the store as much as to save money), we had to get a lot of stuff. The car was packed.
Today, we had a great church service, and this evening we had a Thanksgiving dinner with our Sunday School class. For a small class, we sure had a lot of good food! It was very nice to hang out and visit for a while, and of course, to eat.
Earlier this week, I had lunch with Pastor Rick Smith, who is over the Christian Education department at our church. We talked about my class and things we can do to get more people in there. I think we are going to take the “newlywed” tag off the class and just make it a general marriage class. It will still be great for newlyweds, but that will open it up to a larger group of people, from engaged couples to those who have been married for many years, but maybe want to re-learn (or learn for the first time) some of the marriage principles that we are talking about. We have one such couple who came and asked if it was ok to join the class even though they have been married for several years, and that has worked out fine so far.
Owen is growing so much and his personality is really starting to show. Mary mentioned that he has spent a lot of time over the past week just sitting and organizing his blocks – arranging them by color, shape, size, etc. That is something that he definitely gets from me. I have a tendency to over-analyze the best way to organize things, and can (if I let myself) spend more time organizing certain things than actually using said things. I try not to get too anal about it, though.
Anyway – it’s a mixed bag of stuff, but that’s your update for today. Stay tuned for more, whenever I get around to it.
