Change of Plans

So, change of plans. I am at work tonight instead of tomorrow night. My supervisor called me yesterday at about 6:30pm begging for people to come in to work 11pm-7am. She offered to switch me my 12 hour shift for this little measly 8 hour shift. I had slept until 12:30pm yesterday, so I figured it wouldn't be too much of a stretch. So far, it's going pretty well.

But the clean up at the house. Oh, the clean up. There are many things to do. Christmas decorations to take down, Christmas ornaments to put away and reorganize for next year, sewing projects to FINISH and then pack away, kitchen table to de-clutter, room to clean, fold, wash, reorganize, put away and then furniture to rearrange to accomodate a piano. QUICK BREATH. Goodwill stuff to take there, boxes of stuff to pack for previous roommates, fridge to clean out, food to eat. Sigh.

Oddly enough, I'm looking forward to all this. When I'm in the mood, I like to clean. I actually obsessively clean. When I get it into my head to do something, thats ALL I want to do. It can be a good thing. For instance, that's how I finished the bathroom in two days, EVEN though I "had" to paint the bathroom twice. Three times if you count the primer.

Can I also say that the book Ragamuffin Gospel is changing my life? It's so good to be reminded that Jesus LOVES us, is rooting for us and some times, it's not about you being happy, but about being HOLY. That's a good one.

All for now.

(Hopefully I will get bathroom pictures up tomorrow.)

Hmm. Somebody just shared this quote with me last night from Manning's book - “To be alive is to be broken; to be broken is to stand in need of grace. It is only through grace that any of us could dare to hope to become more like Christ.”

It is next on my list to read.
