The Week Ahead

It's Sunday evening and I'm watching the Cardinals try to figure out the Phillies' pitching so that they can tie the series before heading to St. Louis.

The week ahead will be a busy one.  It starts early tomorrow when I meet with my accountability group at 6:30. The Monday morning meet works well for us and allows a couple of the guys to get to work on time and doesn't take away an evening or time on the weekend from our families. The only downside for me is that Mondays are my day off and would be the day that I might sleep in a little bit later. On the other hand, I generally view sleeping as a waste of time so I guess it doesn't really matter.

After breakfast, I'll finally get to take the Del Sol in to have the engine replaced (again). I have this week scheduled as a week of vacation.  Tuesday is Chris' birthday. We'll probably start with dinner out on Monday night and then continue on Tuesday with a day trip to a few places that we've been meaning to visit.

I'll need to pick up the Del Sol by sometime Thursday morning and then be on the road in the afternoon/evening to make the 5 hour drive to Maysville MO for a weekend crusade at the First Baptist Church of Maysville.  My part begins on Friday morning at 10. I'll be doing two assemblies at Osborn School; K-6th on self esteem, and 7-12 on making good choices.  Then we'll move to Maysville School for an afternoon 7-12 assembly (also on making good choices). Friday night will be a 5th quarter event after the local football game.

Saturday is a fun day with a carnival like event  and a couple of magic shows. Gary Taylor will deliver the evening message for the Crusade.

The weekend crusade will conclude with the Sunday morning service.

I'll be spending the early part of the week getting things ready for the different programs. It's been a couple of years since I've done a school assembly.  I'm looking forward to it.  I would like to do more of that kind of thing in retirement. 

It should be a grand week!

'that kind of thing in retirement'

Are we back to a countdown clock?

" I generally view sleeping as a waste of time..." I used to think that, too. Now, the first thing I do on Friday morning is turn off the alarm so it doesn't go off over the weekend. Sleep has become my friend, however much a waste of time it may be.
