It’s been a fairly average Monday.
Staff meeting – check.
Reading and Bible study prep for Tuesday morning – check.
Brief walk on the treadmill – check.
Two loads of laundry (almost) finished & dinner on the table (if mac & cheese, hummus & pita can be called ‘dinner’) – check.
Child in bed – check.
PINK Tuesday blog written (hit ‘save’ at 11:29pm) – check. Or maybe not. Hey, wait a minute! Where did tomorrow’s blog GO? SERIOUSLY?! You’ve got to be kidding me. It’s just GONE.
Never mind that I’m more than a little bit tired. Or that I’m feeling the weight of completing an intimidating to-do list for February’s women’s retreat. The post that I spent the past two hours writing has simply fallen into the depths of my outdated laptop and, well, it can’t get up.
I’m certain there’s a lesson here for me to learn. In all likelihood, there’s a lesson I’m to share so that you can learn with me. But I suspect you’ve been here before – sidelined by your own technical difficulties – always poorly timed.
So let’s dispense with the wisdom for tonight, take the sheets out of the dryer and make the bed. Start the dishwasher, write a reminder note to put dinner in the crockpot on the way out tomorrow morning, and call it a night.
Or maybe we could call it a hijacking. Of my plan for God’s.
