new week, new routine, new everything.
I slept for a solid 24 hours. I feel human. I need to go get my back cracked, but I think it may work itself out. Stress leaving, things settling and the like. Feeling much much better.
Lent begins tomorrow. It’s one of my favorite times of the year and I feel unprepared and rushed. I’ve thought off and on about what I want to do with the time. It is a time of reflection for me, and not necessarily a time of giving up potato chips or whatever most people use it for. But usually I have given a goodly amount of prayer and thought to this and quite frankly my prayer time and thoughts have been focused on livers and broken hearts and orange balloons and new friends and new thoughts and new lives. So…
That seems to be my theme.
I’m still meditating and praying on it. I’ll let you know tomorrow how it rolls out.
It’s time to get out in the garden and dig in the dirt. Our weather here is sublime this week so I’m going to take advantage. Onions and whatever else Bonusmom tells me I can plant early.
I’ve got a big test this week, and since I slept through classes last night, I may well have a test next Monday night. If I can get the professor to respond to my email. I wish he was as great as my other professors. He just isn’t.
Time to wash last week out of my hair, and get ready for class. Time to hit the grocery store, the seed store and the bank to pay bills that are incredibly late.
Time to get up and Laissez les bons temps rouler!

Just a suggestion from a non-Lenter but maybe the message is to set aside time for meditating and praying every day, just that nothing else, not driving or walking or trying to sleep but conscious time for meditation.
Mary and I spoke of the same thing this morning. I want to consciously set aside time to love this life I’ve been given. Love myself and my body and care for my health. Things that have been ripped away from my friends and loved ones, I want to treasure. Maybe that manifests itself in daily prayer, meditation or yoga, using the treadmill, trying a healthy new recipe…I’m working on the language but that’s pretty much what I’ve decided.
I want all my framily (friend who is family…see how I just made a new word?!?!) to be healthy. HEALTHY DANGIT! It would be great if this was something you worked on for Lent, but then let it stretch on over for the rest of your life.
