We'll I've been reading a few of my favorite blogs and several have good-bye 2008 or hello 2009 posts. I've been too busy living 2009 to reflect on it! I have four big projects, three trips, and residency paper work all in the next two months. So my resolution or goal or whatever you want to call it is to stay out of panic mode, out of dread mode and just do the next thing.

When I manage to stay in the moment and not "dread ahead," I do pretty well. It worked while I was at Mom's. When I start dreading, I get overwhelmed and discouraged. I haven't spent much time in the apocrypha or deuterocanonical books, but twice in the last couple of weeks I have found myself reading Sirach 11:10 My child, do not busy yourself with many matters; if you multiply activities, you will not be held blameless. If you pursue, you will not overtake, and by fleeing you will not escape. I'm listening Lord!

Now for a couple of mini-notes:
  • This was the first New Year's Eve G&T and I spent apart from each other in 30+ years. It was wierd. Maybe that's part of why I'm not so into this "new start" stuff.
  • I'll be at the Congress on Evangelism this week. Anyone else???
  • The temperature when I got up this morning was 46 degrees lower than yesterday's high of 84!
  • I'm using this blog entry to stall from stuff I don't want to do, so time's up.

I'll be at dinner with Bishop Schnase. I can't really afford more than that....

See you there?
