Gonna start out by saying that this week was not on my top ten list of the best weeks ever.
-- On Monday, I was irrationally angry. Also, my thumb started hurting. The pain was minor; the anger was not. I had to wrestle with the anger thing for about three days. After a really good cry and a LOT of grace from both God and other people, I was able to get over the anger. My thumb, on the other hand, chose to suddenly swell up and get all purple and red on Thursday night. My first thought was, "Well, at least it's my left thumb (I'm right handed), so if this is gangrene and I have to get it amputated, I can still hold pencils, eating utensils, and I can still play the guitar." Well, I don't think it's going to have to be amputated (I still get to wear lefty thumb rings! Hooray!). It's still slightly swollen, but it's definitely healing up. I just hope it'll finish healing up in time for me to finish my Christmas knitting.
-- I finally finished the book I'm supposed to be reviewing. But now that I've read it, I find that I want to read it again before reviewing, just to help me order my thoughts. So, I'm guessing I won't be reviewing this book until some time in January. I got the book in October, so I guess a January review isn't pushing it too much, hmm? Hmm.
-- I've been to two Christmas musical programs--one for a kid who comes where I work, and one for the kids at my church. It just doesn't feel like Christmas until I've seen some kids singing. I'm going to try to go to another Christmas program this week for one of the girls I watch, and then I'll be singing next Sunday in the adult choir/orchestra program at my church.
-- It's only two weeks until Christmas. Just thought you'd like to know. Are you done with your shopping and baking and wrapping?
