All thy waves and thy billows are gone over me.

September hit me like a Mack truck carrying a load of bricks. Just as my body and brain were adjusting to the seasonal changes, the fall craziness struck. I didn't really realize how busy I was until I wrote up my October accounts and looked at the business mileage I racked up September. No wonder I was tired!

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.
