Much on my mind
Home today with an ill wife - we were at the emergency room at 5 this morning. Even though we were able to return home, it was late, and I was tired, so no school.
I have a lot on my mind.
Still mulling over what might happen a week from now when we have our Fraternity election. I have misgivings.
Play practice is going well, but there's so much to do, and we perform one month from now.
The possibility of retiring is becoming more real. June? Wait for a year or two?
If I do retire, what then? Part-time job? More volunteer activities? Fraternity duties?
I chose not to do Santa at the mall this year. Will I ever return to the mall, or try to make it on my own?
More writing? Finishing the poetry books? The Slug Chronicles? My own clerihews? Work with the Chesterton Society to create a clerihew collection? And the novel - do I finally finish it? Some of the play ideas? A religious drama?
There are also spiritual issues. There are so many ways I need to grow, to be more serious about developing my prayer life. I need to find another spiritual director.
Then there are the situations with the girls. When will they be resolved? Will they ever?
So much on my mind
But now, finding some props for the play, and grading papers, and going out to the school later to pick up the papers that were handed in today.
And I need sleep ...
Pax et bonum
