Still here

Me, immobilized by work and demands on my time.
I was in Atlanta last weekend to meet the movers and pack a bit of furniture and other belongings to shift up nawth. And since it was World Mission Sunday (how many of you knew that?), I was guest speaker for the adult ed session at dear All Saints'. And 'tween the duties, lots of good food with family and friends. All in all, a much better (and shorter) journey home than Christmas proved to be. But no time to blog, alas.

I'm completely snowed under at work. January and most of February have been taken up with expanding our newly-designed website, World Mission Sunday planning/resources, gathering background resources in preparation for Bishop Katharine's trip to the much ballyhooed Primates' meeting in Tanzania, preparing for the United Nations Commission on the Status of Women (taking place over the next couple of weeks), and sorting out plans for upcoming conferences and the big trip to Africa in two weeks. Everyone around here's going crazy - so much to do, so few hands on deck (though the ones we do have are quality), such stretched financial resources.

In short, no time to blog-post at work, and too tired to blog-post at home. I'll try to get back on track soon. My furniture arrives tomorrow (yea! my own bed!) and I hope to find a way to post throughout my upcoming travels.

So until things get back on blog-track for me, sort out the following for me:
  • Stop pre-empting House for American Idol! Aargh!

  • Strap Britney into a rehab facility and slap her parents.

  • Let the Oscar wagers begin.

  • Bury James Brown and Anna Nicole, for God's sake.

See? I still have time to pay attention to nonsensical trivia. Hm. And tomorrow night? My own bed.

>Agree about House. I refuse to be suckered into Idol this year.

>Britney-- Who knew her ears would have been so big. Bimbo/Dumbo.

>Oscars-- I'm always a year behind. I refuse to sit in shoebox
theatres and listen to cell phones ring. NetFlix or Blockbuster. (arriving today... Grey Gardens, on your advice)

>ANS/JB -- Save time and money, bury them in the same hole on the same day.

My daily opinion. Sorry, just in a crabby mood.

Moving up north? Nice. See you around the East Coast.

Hurrah. Your own bed! You are one amazing woman. I admire you so much. The move, the apartment hunting, the working all the while through it all, sneezles, transitions ... and worthwhile work at that!

Nice to read you even if it is from time to time. You make me smile and catch my breath especially how aware you are of current events. Except for the IDOL part I'm with you ...

Hope your furniture all arrives in one piece and that your bed is up and ready for tonight. Sleep well!

Your own bed...yea, that definitely makes a huge difference Mary. Even though we have missed you...we understand life's priorities...don't worry about not blogging.

Britney....I think we're all pretty done with her road to destruction. Enough.

Every time you fill us in on what's been going on with you....I almost have to lay down. You kill me. Take care of yourself sweetie....hope it all comes together for you.

Bro - let me know what you think about Grey Gardens. What a weird little duo.

Rhea, Tamar, Liz, Joy, Winston - I thank you for your support. Here's hoping I can settle down and become my irreverent little self before long!
