I went ahead and changed the blog background early since the weather has decided to turn spring-like early. The winter template just didn't seem appropriate any more. Of course, since it was only appropriate for about seven days this winter, it is really a moot point. I do have to say that I can't believe it's already March. I feel like the first two months of the year flew by. I guess that means I was busy. Sadly, the next couple of months (March and April) are shaping up to be super busy.
This was a mixed week. I am super busy at work but feel something is "off." I can't really explain it because I enjoy my job, I just feel like something is missing. It's a strange place to be especially since I've been asked to apply for a position with another organization. My bosses know and are supportive, it just leaves me in a weird spot. I know God has the plans all worked out, I just don't like the uncertainty. That control freak in me comes out more often than I would like lately. Gotta continue to pray about that.
I didn't make the best food choices this week but still managed to lose weight. That's not really a good thing. I have to figure out how to overcome those temptations to indulge the things that I know aren't good for me. I can all too easily attribute it to fatigue, frustration, etc. but I have a harder time calling it what it is, sin. Fortunately, my friend Sheryl is fighting a similar battle and blogging about it here. I have learned a lot as Sheryl has been blogging about her experiences. I have gained insight into my own journey through reading about hers. It's definitely been an inspiration. This is a spiritual battle and I am determined to use spiritual tools to fight instead of relying on so-called willpower.
We are moving into my favorite time of year. No, not spring, March Madness. As a sports fan, I can't decide what I like better, March Madness or bowl season. I think it depends on when you ask me. :-) I remember in college being able to go from game to game to game all day on Thursday and Friday and end the day on a basketball high. For the past several years, I've had to watch scores on my computer and only watch games once I got home from work. This year, I get to watch tournament games all day AND get paid for it. My mom is having to have some surgery and it coincides with the week the tournament begins. I am taking time off to take care of her so as she's recuperating, we won't have anything to do but watch basketball. Since she's as big a college basketball fan as I am, if she has to have the surgery, March Madness is as good a time as any. In fact, the madness really starts tonight with Duke/UNC. ACC regular-season title on the line, #1 seed probable to winner, revenge on the minds of UNC? Yes, please. Hollywood can't script drama like this! Gotta go get dinner together so I can be ready for tip-off. More next week.
