this week it was inventory week at the library. every book had to be found, checked off a list, and then the shelf under it had to be cleaned. this meant for a long, long week. a week full of 8 hr days at the library, while still maintaining a busy banner order week and church stuff.
needless to say, I lost my marbles a few times.
like forgetting my wallet twice in 24 hrs and not realizing it till I reached the check-out portion of my trip to the store & restaurant. thank goodness for the kindness & understanding of friends.
also,i have gone to bed fully clothed one more than one occasion this week.
and i forgot to call my sister on her birthday (though i did send her some flair on facebook – does that count?) did i mention that she lives in germany and i only see her twice a year if I am lucky? (happy birthday jemimah!)
plus i am pretty certain I have forgotten to make some phone calls, return some emails and do some other important stuff that will come to me in the middle of the night i am sure…
but this afternoon, while sitting on the porch, enjoying a brief glimpse at pretty weather and watching Miles run to meet Wylie, and feeling slightly guilty that I wasn’t glittering something, or calling someone, or cleaning everything, a ladybug flew in from the south and landed on my lap. and i was very, very glad to be sitting still in that moment, sun on my face, hands idle.
