Last week, I had intended to take a vacation, my first in a year. Two hours into it, I got a call saying a prominent parishioner was about to pass on, which happened the next day. I got to spend my vacation planning a funeral. Then, to top that off, I came down with a head cold on the day of the funeral, and spent the two days I had left of my vacation sick in bed. This is why my blogging has been sporadic the last week and a half.
I am back on the job, and will try to post more regularly. I am also feeling much better today. I am convinced the trick to dealing with colds and sickness is to actually let yourself be sick. A lot of people try to work, and it makes the whole thing worse in the end.
Such is life.
