It’s hard to believe the Easter weekend has come and gone already. I was just starting to really get the hang of the sleeping in and relaxing routine when my alarm went off–ever so rudely, I might add–at an inappropriate hour this morning. I sure could have used an extra hour or two of sleep. But…there’s no time for sleeping! We have presidential candidates to host. Media to accomodate. Programs to write; media kits to assemble; ticketing, invitations, and volunteers to figure out. A web site needs launched; a stage needs set. It’s crazy busy at work and will be for the next three weeks as we approach The Compassion Forum.
So, even after just one day back, my long, relaxing weekend seems like eons ago. For those of you dying to know, I had a lovely breakfast at Panera Bread on Friday. I will unabashedly admit that I slept so late that I only had about an hour at Panera before the lunch crowd started arriving. And, the lunch crowd is noisier than the breakfast crowd, so it was time to pack up “War and Peace” and move on! Over the weekend, I crossed into the 400s in “War and Peace.” I must admit that I’m honestly enjoying the book. For realsies.
Otherwise, the weekend consisted of shopping, a birthday party for a pretty cute one-year-old, and plenty of games of computer Wheel of Fortune with Jeff. We also hosted Eunice for Easter dinner. That made us feel less like orphans since all the other Easter orphans abandoned us.
So, tomorrow we hope to launch The Compassion Forum website. Keep an eye on Messiah’s homepage — some pretty exciting news is coming your way!
