It's Sunday. A good day to rest. Especially after the busy week I've just had, culminating in Elegant's party yesterday.
... I got up at 5:15 and took Crazy Aunt Laura to the airport. We miss her already.
Did I go back to bed after my trip to the airport?
No, I came home and worked for a few hours. Then I swung by Whole Foods to pick up muffins and scones, then moved on to Starbucks for copious amounts of coffee.
My ultimate destination was the university, where I had a day-long retreat. In attendance were the student leaders of the men's choral group I work for and the officers of the associated alumni association.
We worked all day -- plotting and scheming and dreaming. We covered short-term and long- term plans, concerts here in town and also around the U.S. and abroad, small budget items and bigger ticket items. My own job security came up -- I am a contractor and am hired on a year-to-year basis -- and it appears that I'll be staying busy at work in the next few years.
I should be exhausted, but I had a wonderful, intellectually challenging day and now have loads of projects to tackle this coming week.
Now I just need to put my house to rights after yesterday's festivities.
