Special intention list for the weekend:
For my mom’s continued recovery from a recent stay in the hospital and investigative surgery
For marriage in general, for everyone’s marriage in particular

I’m at a journalism conference today. Just a one-day ethics conference on … ethics in journalism. I’m excited to see other professionals and hear what the panelists have to say.

Sometimes, I think I get into my job, that I don’t look at the bigger picture. I hope today helps that a little.
I also can’t wait to bring everything back to work on Monday and share with my coworkers. That’ll be the best part, to discuss with them what went on.

Easter was fabulous, wasn’t it? I was just.. full of joy. Beautiful. I love seeing the church packed (even though I get distracted!), I love seeing the usher ask people to move into the rows further. Quit sitting at the ends and leaving empty seats! You know how this works.

I had brunch with my family. That was nice. Then I spent the rest of the day relaxing, enjoying. It was beautiful outside, too.

We had elections on Tuesday… so I was up at 6 a.m. for a meeting with some parents about a school issue, then I was in the office until midnight finalizing our paper. That was pretty crazy.

My sleep is still off. I’m hoping to make it up this afternoon. We’ll see.

I got a flyer for Relevant Radio.
I donate frequently. Not a lot of money, but frequently. When I see I have some extra money, I try to send it out. Or to Life Site News. Or some other Catholic media company.
Or even the animal shelter I drive by sometimes.

Anyway, I am thinking about becoming a dollar-a-day donor.
I was looking at how much I gave over the past two years. It wasn’t a lot, and not up to $365, but I think I could do it.
I could pay quarterly, or monthly even. That would be an OK deal. I think I could handle it.
I’m kind of nervous to make the commitment, though I know it would be a good thing.

I haven’t cooked anything in a while.
Well, I made some eggs and sausage this morning. It was good.
I did the same yesterday.
But I haven’t got my hands dirty making something that I needed to follow a recipe for (however loosely I choose to follow it).
I miss it. And it hasn’t even been that long! Maybe a week!
I’ll get back to it next week.

Also, I haven’t made espresso in a while. I kind of just don’t want to do the work.
I know, lazy.
Also, I didn’t have any syrup for the coffee… so, it just kind of fell away.

God bless.
