Monday Madness (on Tuesday)

1.  It’s hot.

2.  It’s nice to finally have a vehicle that is reliable in this heat.  Did I mention that we finally got rid of the Crunchy Honda?  We actually were able to use it on trade in to get a 2001 (?) Accord.  It is in immaculate condtion.  Not exactly an expense we needed or could afford, but we couldn’t NOT afford it either.  The CH was just too unsafe.

3.  I’m about 2/3 done with The Omnivore’s Dilemma  by Michael Pollan.  There will surely be more posts to come on this book, but I highly recommend it.  In fact, I really don’t see a credible reason that anyone shouldn’t read it.  If you hate corporate America, this book is for you.  If you’d rather shop at the local mom’n’pop, this book is for you.  If you think the government has their hands buried a bit too deep in everything, you won’t believe what you’ll read here.  If you care even a little about your health, you need to read it.  (If you don’t care about your health, I can’t help you!)  If you hate politics, this book is for you.  If nothing excites you more than a big, juicy steak, you absolutely MUST read this book.  If you are an organic snob, this one’s for you.  If you just like food, gotta read it.  Trust me, there will be more to come on this subject.

4.  I just accepted an offer to transfer to a new location within my company.  The new location is about a mile and a half from Jarid’s work, and about three and a half miles closer than my current location.  I’m trusting and praying that this is a good move.  It will allow me to gain more experience in the credit union and get an overall fresh perspective.  Sometimes working with almost all girls is NOT a good thing.  Okay, most of the time!

5. Still really wanting to go back to school.  Still don’t know if it’s feasible or practical.  Thank goodness we serve a God who sees the end before it begins, huh?

That’s all for now.  Gotta go see if a certain little girl has destroyed her room, for the eightieth time!
