Two more sleeps and

a wake up then it will be the day to see the surgeon to get cleared to drive and resume living.  So looking forward to that visit, I don’t even care if it involves more bright lights in my eye!!

Not much is going on at the moment.  Seem to be napping and sleeping in more than getting things accomplished. Today sweet hubby made me bacon and eggs for brunch while I took a shower and chatted to Momma on the phone. He also made me pumpernickel toast which I slathered with harlequin pear jam that found it’s way here from Momma and Jay’s!!   Brunch was a hit!

Some people are having difficulties and are in my thoughts.  My sister-in-law who is a quad is hospitalized with pancreatitis and a bad gallbladder.  They nixed gallbladder surgery as it is very difficult to do with the way her colostomy is positioned.  So they are giving her massive doses of antibiotics to try to get it to heal.  One of my other friends had a family at their church who lost everything in a house fire.  They are collecting things to help them out as they got put into a condo for the moment.  They mentioned that the husband had his computer burn up.  I am wondering if we have any that would be alright to donate – or if, like many things around here, the computer would be too out of date/old to be of use to anyone.

Today I haven’t done much.  Went to the mall to pick up the Christmas ornaments that we had put on layaway – best thing ever invented.  Came home, made some phone calls then left to go eat dinner at church to help the youth group raise money for their annual trip, then to church because it is Advent so they have a special service on Wednesday.  They had the first and second graders sing a song during the service, it was cute; don’t ask me what they sang as I was not quite focused on the music.

Now sweet hubby is already up the stairs and I should be heading up that way too.

Hope you had a slightly more productive day in your neck of the woods!!

Do you ever………

Do you ever wonder if you are just smarter than other people? Even when they have more education or are older?
I have been pondering that one for most of today.  Here is why…………..  our church (which is really small) is trying to put together a picture directory with a well known photography studio.  We had to have a minimum number of participants in order for them to do it.  Arrangements were made so that we could all book our photo sitting times via the internet.  Simple, right? (pardon me while I snort with laughter)  I suggested to a couple of the people in charge (one is an elementary principal) that perhaps we should also have an alternative way to sign people up in case some people do not have internet access.  I received no response to that.
On last Wednesday I found out that we had less than 1/2 of the required sitting appointments and it would have to be canceled if no one else booked one. Since the sessions are this weekend I figured out somebody should do something so that this project didn’t fail.  So I made a decision to bring my laptop to church today – I didn’t have to as there are a couple of computers there – so that we could just do appointments right there between services.  I was told by the people in charge that, that was alright though most people will give any excuse and that is probably why they weren’t booking appointments.
Today we booked 17 more appointments so we are a bit above the minimum needed.  Go us!!
I figured that people were lazy and didn’t want to type the rather long URL into their browser or as I suspected some didn’t have internet access (which was correct in some cases) and some just weren’t sure how to do it and as long as you were the one typing they were more than happy to sign up.
Now I ask you, how come someone who has a minimum of a master’s degree could not figure out that doing it that way would produce a much better outcome than just announcing it, sending home fliers about it and publishing it in our weekly and monthly newsletter did?  This really wasn’t rocket science.
So I sit here and I wonder, why do people have to have so much education to get a job when all one should really need is some good old fashioned common sense and a good work ethic?  Think about it and let me know what you think.
