My apologies

I was trying to post with some regularity, but alas, life gets in the way again. I had a great trip to San Antonio, though it was brief. I got some great rides in on Saturday morning. Fiesta Texas was very hospitable as always. They provided lunch and dinner and all sorts of extras for us - like free drinks. I get spoiled when I go to events like this because after being able to ride a coaster five times in a row it stinks to have to wait in line for an hour for just one ride on a coaster.

I'm still behind with work and I don't think I'll ever catch up. My to-do list just keeps growing. This week we're having a mission at our church which means we have something every evening at 7:00. Of course I don't have to go, but I want to so that means that homework and everything else gets put on hold. Last night I was up until 11:00 doing an assignment. I had to get it submitted by midnight and once again, I waited until the last minute. Once again, I'm not 100% happy with the work I did on it but it will probably be o.k. The last assignment that I submitted that I did not care for I got a 100 on... so I guess perhaps I'm just too much of a perfectionist.

I had a headache at school today. Actual headaches for me are rather rare. I don't know if it is because I didn't get enough sleep or what but it started on the way to school this morning and just got worse. I left at lunch to go pick something up and I went to Walmart and got some Excedrin (and chocolate). I picked up a coke and my lunch and took two Excedrin when I got back to school. It did the trick, but I'm still wondering why I had the headache in the first place. I know they just sometimes happen, but I'm not one that gets them very often (knock on wood).

I am debating whether or not I am going to the mission tonight. Tonight's topic is confession which should be good, but part of me just wants to stay at home. But then I also think I need to work more on my relationship with God and it would be good for me. I don't really need to go to confession because I just went the weekend before last and don't have any major sins but I should probably at least hear the message and then perhaps I can just head out early. Even if I stayed home, I'm 95% sure that I wouldn't do the work I need to do. I really need to get to bed early tonight. Maybe if I go to bed early, I'll be able to get up early and get to school early tomorrow. (Yeah, right.)

Well, I'm going to scrounge around and find a quick bite to eat and then head out to church. Then I'm NOT going to grade papers or do homework - but probably just call it an early night. Oh well. Call me lazy. Mostly I'm just tired.

**Edit: I did go to church and I even went to confession again. I didn't have a lot to say - but was able to get a few things off my chest - a few venial sins - and am thankful for the continuing grace of forgiveness. I just have to say that as much as confession still makes me nervous - I appreciate its purpose and the forgiveness it provides. I still love being Catholic.**

I had to look up venial. Ohhh the list is long. I was thinking about your headache. Do you have allergies? Seems like the leaf mold and golden rod is getting to everyone around here this week.

Get some rest!

I haven't been able to post much either, or be able to catch up on everyone. How is the BF situation going?

Yes, the magic words, ego te absolvo.
A lot of comfort is in it.
