Monday January 9, 2006


Today was an “almost one of my best days” type of day.  Started it out right w/an early morning walk with Norma.  Early, as in, 8 o’clock.  But hey, that means getting up shortly after 7:00 so I have time to get ready and be at Norma’s by 8:00.  She lives a whole 2 and a half blocks away, you know.  And we’re doing it again tomorrow. 

Actually, there really wasn’t anything that spectacular about today, so I’m not sure why it made the “almost” catergory.  Staff meeting like usual and it was actually kinda boring.  Except for little Bradley, who did a good job of entertaining me.  Or did I entertain him?  Hmmm, I think it goes both ways.  Staff lunch after staff meeting (our usual Monday left-overs), and then in the afternoon I went to Norma’s place to do some ironing for her (my Christmas gift to her – always fun to hang out with her).   Homework club at 3:25 and I even took on a new girl.  Her name is Destiny and I don’t even know her, but she’s in the same class as the other girls I have, so I figured it shouldn’t be to difficult to add another one. 

And then this evening, Sheanise came over.  I haven’t spent much time w/her lately, and I had an unplanned evening, so when she called asking for help w/a school project, I happily agreed. 

My “almost best day”,  just about became an “almost very bad day”  when I went on-line, just a few minutes ago, to check out car insurance quotes for the city here.  Ouch!  Double Ouch!  Almost 5 times what I’m paying to keep it in the country.  I think if I’d actually call my agent, I’d get a better quote, but right now I’m thinking things like impossible and bankruptcy and “I HATE INSURANCE” and “I’ll just take the bus, thank you”. 

Later, Lucy

    It was great talking w/you today.  I thinks it’s so awesome how you have made the city your home.  It’s easy to see that you really enjoy your work there and really enjoy connecting w/people and helping them.  I believe that is one of the gifts God has given you.  I believe you have touched and impacted many lives by just being who God made you to be.  Keep it up!  Praying for you as you face many different situations every day!  Have a great week!  Luv ya

    No way!  I don’t think you have to worry about the minutes.  I think we always have plenty to spare.  Thanks for the compliment – I never really thought about it.  Have a good one.
