|10:43 am - Perhaps my dullest update ever|
After encountering the weirdest error ever on my computer, commonly referred to as a "stop error" (which is not all that uncommon, really. . . but it caused a restart with no warning and no chance to halt, save, or terminate an offending program, whichever one it was, which is surprisingly not something I have seen happen so severely before), I slipped out of the office and went home.
There, I set about doing more cleaning in the house until 11, when I decided to watch an episode of As Time Goes By, a rather amusing and quaint show that I very much enjoy for a variety of reasons, most of which are rather incomprehensible outside of my own mind. If the DVD set wasn't $132.99 (on sale), I'd be buying it.
After that, I spent the evening working on the ADF Clergy Training Program, trying to get these two courses, Divination 2 and Trance 1 out of the way. Once those are finished, I can get back into helping to create further courses. I will be spending my next few lunches working on these courses, I think. If I manage two per night (like I did last night), I think I can finish it in about two weeks. Minus the 5-month journaling requirement for three courses, of course.
The aim, I suppose, is to be through the Inititate Program by early next year. Right now, I feel like I'm on a relaxing, easy pace, like it will get done in plenty of time and well before I wanted to actually be done. It does not hurt that I realized I was already journaling on something I was supposed to be doing, anyway.
I cannot describe how relaxed I feel since Tuesday. It was a much-needed vacation.

Oh I ADORE As Time Goes By! The local PBS station has it from 7:30-8:30pm on Saturday evenings and my butt is on the couch waiting for it to start. Like you, I can't seem to explain why I love this show so, except perhaps that I want to be Jean when I grow up. It makes me laugh and laugh at a time when nothing much else does. I'll think of you while laughing this Saturday evening :)
Sometimes the stuff that's most enjoyable seems to be the stuff least worth documenting.
Glad you managed to catch some down time after last week's liturgist list frenzy. :)
Oh but it's only $157.98 if you buy it with the reunion special...
I used to watch that all the time on PBS a couple of years ago. My person favorite though was the Keeping up Appearances That fat irish brother-in-law always made me laugh:) But at least that box set had all the seasons in it, my uncle bought one season of Absolutely Fabulous for about $100. I still think he's crazy for that.
glad to oblige; playing in Columbus with best friends is always relaxing! :)
I love "As Time Goes By" as well. I don't catch it often enough.
