oh! it’s 7 Quick Takes Friday! Again!

How did this happen? It’s Friday, again? My surprise has really, well, surprised me!

And I’m not gonna lie, it’s rather convenient to have this little realization as I sit before an empty screen because it gives me something to write about. I figure, if I’m going to continue to call myself a blogger maybe I should, you know, actually post something other than absurd videos gleaned from other people’s Facebook statuses.

So, without further ado, I present to you …

Check out the collection of other 7 Quick Takes Friday posts, hosted at Jennifer Fulwiler’s blog, Conversion Diary

Well, it’s Friday. That’s a good thing. It is an especially good thing because I am on vacation for the next 10 days. And I’m not going to do anything. And you’re not going to judge me. And there will be chocolate involved.

I have a hot date with my husband tonight. We’re going to see The Green Lantern. While it is not necessarily a highlight of my week yet, it will be. The mere anticipation of this date is already a highlight. And it doesn’t even have anything to do with Ryan Reynolds. Maybe.

In case you didn’t figure this out from #1 above, the term has ended. Amen. And Amen.

My house looks like a construction zone. Oh, wait, it is a construction zone. Nothing like gutting rooms to resolve that little matter of clutter. Only, clutter begets clutter. I wonder what the Old Testament has to say about all that begetting.

In the world of blessings, I’ve been working a 10-hr day/4 day work week for almost four years. At first it was a little tough making the adjustment, but having Fridays off has been a boon to my spiritual life. I’ve made a weekly pilgrimage to our chapel for some quiet Jesus-time and prayer, maybe catching the daily Mass or just sitting in the dark with only the natural light coming in from the windows. I can’t believe it’s been so many years, but I noted that this morning since I’m arranging my day to attend the closing Mass for VBS. Because of work I’ve been unable to participate for years, but the closing Mass always gives me a connection to my friends who’ve always put it together and manned the adventure.

In other news, I haven’t complained about laundry lately, have I? That’s because I haven’t done any due to the construction. I need to make that happen some time this weekend. Things are getting a little ridiculous. I wore a wool suit to work yesterday.

And finally, I should put a little thank you in here…for prayers answered and unanswered (um, well, maybe the answer was just no), friends near and far, coffee, some really hilarious comic relief, and rain.
