Gotta love Monday

I’m thirty minutes into this week, and already feel a bit overwhelmed.  Oh yes, and tired.  24 hours ago I was returning a rental car in San Diego after taking a grand tour of SoCal last week.  I was on a recruiting trip for inter::mission, and visited the campuses of California Baptist University, Azusa Pacific University, Biola University, and Pt. Loma Nazarene University.  It was a super busy time, and I wasn’t able to see nearly enough friends, but I got to crash for a few nights with my parents and hang out a little with the family, which was good (long overdue).  I did get to have dinner with some quality young adults one evening.  Oh yeah, and I had heard about the legendary Archives Bookshop in Pasadena, which isn’t too far down the road from Azusa Pacific, so I stopped in –  they were having a sale, and had some some really good deals, so I didn’t walk away empty handed.  The store did not disappoint – a ton of quality books – not your typical Christian bookstore fluff.  However, I’ll say that as I perused their “new titles” section, my admiration for my friend Bill Bean increased.  He had a ton of those same books at his table at the Revolution Conference.  Even though he’s got a small business with a limited (and traveling) inventory, he knows how to pick the good ones.  You should go buy a book from him.

Thankfully, I got home yesterday morning in time to hang out for at least a little while with my bride.  This is a big deal, because today is her birthday.  I made quiche, which is her favorite.  November is one of my favorite months, because I get to say happy birthday and happy anniversary to my favorite person.  Too bad the birthday part of that equation lands on a Monday for her this year.

Now it’s back to work.  My hope for today is that I can at least get a handle on exactly how far behind I am, and how long it’s likely to take me to get back to treading water.

Peace to you and to me this day.

Glad I could help you out with being overwhelmed.
