Work, work work. This last week I worked 88 hours and I'm scheduled for 60 hours for the up coming week. Lisa and I went out to eat last night and then dancing at a Mardi Gras dance at the Isle of Capri. Barry Badon and the Bayou Boys were playing, they are one of our favourite bands in the area. Lisa and I danced for a couple of hours and "passed a good time" but we had to head home early, because I had to get up before five so I could go to work this morning.

I'm not doing much with this amount of work, but I have been doing a little reading. I finished To Kill a Mocking Bird. I had never read it before and it is a GREAT novel about the old segregated South, just awesome. I'm still reading St. Clement of Alexandria. I loved reading his Exhortation to the Heathen and I'm now on the second book of his The Instructor. The first volume of The Instructor was very interesting and this second is also proving to be very good.

My favourite of the Church Fathers has, for some time, been St. Cyprian, the Bishop of Carthage. Cyprian will keep his first place slot, but I really like St. Clement too.

I've also been reading Max Hastings' book OVERLORD: D-Day and the Battle of Normandy. I've finished the first couple of chapters. Hastings is a great writer of history.

My daughter, Morgan, insists that I consume more fiction and she has loaded my iPod with a number of audiobooks. I've recently finished a couple of books by Neil Gaiman and I'm now on a third. I've finished Mirrormask and Coraline and I'm now listening to Stardust. I've been enjoying Gaiman's books. The're a lot of fun.

Gotta go.

I am trying to stay awake until nightfall. I've been awake for 24 hours, worked a 16 hour shift last night. I got to work at 5:30 last night and worked until 10:30 AM. I have to be at work again at 5:30 tomorrow morning. I do not want to sleep today, so that I will be able to sleep tonight.

After leaving work, I went to Starbucks to see my daughter and get a coffee, I then went to St. Michael's for their 10:15 worship service. I then came home did some work around the house and bathed. Now I am just trying to stay awake, so I gotta keep moving.

It's going to be a VERRRRY long afternoon.

Coram Deo,

Last week I was the sick one. Starting last weekend one of the boys got sick and ran fever from Saturday evening until Tuesday. He missed church and two days of school. When he was on the mind, our youngest son became ill. Today is his second day at home from school with a fever.

My day yesterday was spent waiting on my son, running errands, and cooking spaghetti. I did take time out to attend Eucharistic services at St. Michael's Episcopal Church.

Health wise, I am not well at the moment. After work yesterday evening, I went to the emergency room. I've had a swollen spot on my upper thigh for about a week, which I have been taken antibiotics for. The antibiotics have not helped and this weekend I began running fever, over 101 degrees, and yesterday my body began to ache as though I had the flue.

Because of all that, I went to the emergency room after I got out of work last night. They ran a bunch of tests and said that I should see my od Dr. this morning. I nsaw my Dr. and he is sending me to gat some more tests run this afternoon.

Coram Deo,
