Has it really been a week since I posted last? Apologies.

It’s been a busy week, but largely mundane. Most of Tuesday and Wednesday involved reading heavily in preparation for my genre paper due at the end of the month. Wednesday night, I got to go downtown to the Colorado Book Awards, which was a very nice evening, and very worthwhile. Thursday was my last day at the former day job, and on Friday I read more for the paper, and got re-certified in CPR in the afternoon. Saturday was mostly a day of fun reading, then an evening with friends and a potluck dinner. We tried a new sweet potato dish, and it was a big hit. We’ll have to make it again.

Sunday morning was church, then Matt had a youth staff meeting, and then we headed up to Broomfield for the concert I’ve been looking forward to for two months: Third Day, Switchfoot, and Jars of Clay. I’ve been a fan of all three for at least ten years, so Matt got us tickets for my birthday and we went. Fantastic show. Really amazing.

Today I’m making chili to take to my bible study potluck tonight (is it potluck season?) along with a whole list of other things around the house. The car needs an oil change, there are book to pick up at the library. My goal is to finish with all this stuff today so that I can focus on finishing my reading for the genre paper tomorrow. Wednesday marks the beginning of my new job, which should be a lot of fun.

So there you have it.

Shiloh is still cute as ever, I still haven’t posted pictures from backpacking last weekend, and I haven’t had breakfast yet. I think it’s time I got dressed and started the laundry, at least.
