Things are still crazy busy and I am struggling to keep weight off, but October has been a little lighter than September. I'm not quite as flattened as I was. By the time we get done with Consecration Sunday November 9, I may have a wee bit of time to relax before the countdown to Christmas begins.
In the meantime, I try to get something important done each day. It's so easy to be crushingly busy without really accomplishing anything.
