The week that wouldn’t be
Itâ€™s overcast and rainy out there right now, and Iâ€™m in my office looking at a day of funeral prep and service prep and sermon work.
Itâ€™s the good kind of overcast day and my office is mostly dark, except for the lamp lighting my desk and the candle I just lit to help me focus. I need to focus because there is much to do.
This week really has been a mess. A mess in the house from company and kids leaving, and with that goes a mess financially. A mess with miscommunication between Lauralea and I, which happens but these heightened emotional days just brings it out in us.
Iâ€™m on call at the hospital this week, and as it turns out Iâ€™m doing a two day, two city funeral this weekend. As well as a full Sunday morning.
And, Lauralea has left me.
yeah, we got her on a bus this morning for her sisters wedding this weekend, and the catch is that the only buses leaving Swift Current this weekend leave Saturday morning at 8:30am, or Late Sunday night. That means she will have to leave a full six hours before the wedding even happens, to get home before Monday. I told her she should drive down, but in the end she figured driving would keep her alone a lot and she wants to connect with her sister, who sheâ€™s meeting and spending some time with today. A long, frustrating story.
So itâ€™s Micah and me in the midst of the chaos. And with the things I need to do before the weekend, Iâ€™m not even sure about myself.
Any good vibes you can send our way, Iâ€™d be grateful for.
