I've either got to sleep a lot more or a lot less to get through this

Well, Deanne got away yesterday and should arrive in Virginia Beach today. I'm up to my labonza in laundry and dishes and other household chores. Oh, yeah -- and pet care: Hera is taking pills and has to go back to the vet this week; Sassy is always high-maintenance.

Meanwhile, there are many other things to be done this week. I'm pulling together summer sermons. Planning Family Camp -- which is week after next, but has to be done now, since next week I'll be at Scout Camp with the Troop. NAUMS business has to be finished up before our Annual Meeting in six weeks. GCUMM and BSA have both sent me stuff that has to be responded to. And there are calls to catch up on, of course. The Pathfinder needs to be sent out soon.

Our new Education Committee met last night. Things are looking up for Sunday School. OTOH, that meeting, being a local church urgency, trumped the board and knocked two other meetings -- one face-to-face, one conference call -- off the table. Gotta catch up on what happened at those meetings, somehow.

Time for another cup of coffee.
