Hangin' in there...

Well, last week's 80-hour slide is likely to repeat itself - or worse - this week. So the weekend was 3 AA meetings (Fri. nite, Sat., Sunday) and mostly staying in bed Sunday trying not to be sick.

I had lots to write about, but to be honest, most of my time was either catching up on sleep or watching Roswell (which I finally finished) and Stargate SG-1 season 8, just as mind candy. I'm sure that getting back to meat-and-potatoes will come later this week.

My sister Sue's husband Jeff has been laid off for the month of January for the first time in 20-plus years - pray that he find the strength and the motivation to seek new employment. And my friends Sandy Motsinger and Jerry Amundson are both struggling with health issues - Jerry's actually in the hospital in KC. And my friend Eric Amundson is leaving for China for two weeks today. So lots and lots of prayer concerns...

I'll be holding you up in prayer this week.

Taking good care of yourself is probably the next right thing at the moment. And the next right thing, and the next right thing, and the next right thing until this flurry of work passes.

I'm not a hater, but I always hated it in the '80s when people thought they were being helpful by saying, "Work smarter, not harder."

Because after you've worked twice as many hours in a week than you're intended by God to work, you can't work or think or do anything smarter.

I guess it says something about me that my response to that saying was usually, "Deadline smarter, not shorter."
