Lazy Bum

My life has just been pretty darn boring lately. It’s probably my doing. I guess I just needed a break from the craziness. I was home for dinner Wednesday through Friday! Things got crazy at the office with Tara gone Thursday and especially Friday with Tara gone. I spent way too much time watching television lately, I feel like a bum and yet that is about the only thing I feel like doing. As soon as I get done writing here I will watch the new made for TV Knight Rider movie and then it will probably be off to bed.

Sadly I can’t really think of anything worth writing. I haven’t really come up with what we are going to do tomorrow night for teacher development. It’s going to be more of a discussion/question & answer session than a necessary lesson so hopefully I don’t need to do too much prep, but I do need to come up with some questions and my answers to them. We’re probably only going to have 30-45 minutes so we may not make it through more than a few questions if everyone participates, but preparedness is really the name of the game. I’m probably not setting the best example here, but I have been thinking about it a lot which I think definitely counts for something.

Well, I guess I’ll stop boring ya all now and get on with Knight Rider…

Full Sunday

Today was good. It was very full, but it was good. I woke up early for a Sunday to spend some time really preparing the lesson for Elder’s Quorum today. I think the lesson turned out well due to lots of great participation from others. I really didn’t do much, which is the way that it should be and instead was able to lead what I thought was a good overview of the chapter and discussion amongst the elders. Now if I can just come up with things for the other upcoming times I need to talk or present a lesson I’ll be doing good.

The fireside tonight got cancelled and our branch conference got pushed back a few months so things changed around quite a bit today. Beyond that we had great lessons and good time in fellowship. Jim and I went and home-taught Kim which was nice and was a good conclusion to the lesson today on becoming more like Christ. We need to continue to raise the bar with home teaching and many other aspects.

I’m missing the Knight Rider movie that’s on this evening, so I’m going to have to wait until Saturday night to catch it again. I think it is time to upgrade to an HD DVR. That means no ReplayTV and I’ll probably end up with the cable companies DVR so I have one less device. I guess the cost would be about the same in the end as what I’m paying now, so why not, right?

I’m hoping I can truly get back to work this week. The last few weeks just seem like they have been filled with too many sidetracks to really be doing what we are there to do. I’m going to focus on getting back on track here and pressing forward this week. I’m going to start by getting a good night’s sleep.

Mysterious GT Outing

I enjoyed sleeping in this morning and doing a lot of nothing today. I did upgrade wordpress on my site this morning (afternoon) so it now supports tags and will allow people to register. I had the register feature turned off because I was getting registration spams, but I was able to find an easy to install captcha to hopefully solve that problem. It seems to be working so far, and as a demonstration of how many registrations I get, I got one during the time it took me to setup the captcha which was less than ten minutes!

I also enjoyed looking at information on the upcoming Knight Rider movie. Matthew made me think they were going to be bringing back episodes, but it is just a made for TV movie. I’m sure it won’t be nearly as good as the original, but I will enjoy it nonetheless.

Tonight was the GT annual employee outing. Desoree invited me on Wednesday, so there wasn’t much planning that went into it on my side, but they have been planning it for a while. They kept the destinations a surprise which was interesting and probably a good idea at the same time. We ended up going to Ruth Chris on the San Diego Bay and then going to Kearny Mesa Bowl for two hours of bowling.

I had never been to Ruth Chris before so it was great to go. I don’t think I got invited two years ago when they went (we aren’t technically employees of GT so we don’t get the notices). The food was good, but the service wasn’t that great. I’m sure some of that was due to the party size (50 people), but I ordered a drink twice which I never got and it just seemed to take forever to get the food around.

Bowling was good. I hadn’t been bowling in years, possibly over a decade because I only remember doing it in Kansas and there is no mention of it ever on my blog! I actually did fairly well, at least compared to many of those in our party with scores in the low hundreds. I was getting really tired during the second game, but my technique was getting better so my scores remained about the same. Mark could really get the ball down the lane, so much that I don’t even think it spun on the way down most of the time. I wouldn’t have wanted to get in the way of that ball. Desoree was doing the grandma bowl: walking up to the line and then tossing the ball between her legs. Don did pretty good and ended up with the second highest score I believe. Jeremiah’s fiance beat everyone with a 150-something score.

I must hand it to GT for always putting forth a great effort in their parties. They’re looking for ideas for next year, and I’m always up for ideas of things to do for CBC, so what ideas do you think would be good?

I guess it’s a good thing I’ve spent so much time sleeping this week because these past two days have been rough. I’m looking forward to another good night’s sleep tonight…
