It's fascinating, this passing of time. The year is ending, the year is beginning.

I'm tremendously excited for one reason. One of the places I work has a "profit sharing" in which they contribute 15% of my salary to my 401k. This is the first time I've been eligible and barely eeked over the 1000 hours. But I'll finally have more than a few bucks in my 401k. I'm planning on leaving here at some point and I hope that I can still contribute at other places I work.

I'm leaving now to cat sit. Exciting isn't it? They are cute, but I'm tired and want to just watch TV for a while.

Heaven and Hell

It is amazing, I think, that God gives us a glimpse of heaven before a week of hell (or longer).

Next week is finals week here and I know that I have been completely stressed about all my irons in the fire. I have a jury on Thursday, had one today, and have three sizable papers due within the next week or so. Not to mention a 2 conducting finals and 2 smallish papers. All this is very accomplishable. I also have to plan Epiphany, Lent, Easter and Pentecost at church, which includes a 5-session Adult Forum series on Worship. I love my system of scheduling.

Oh, I forgot to mention the program I'm singing in tomorrow. I am a part of 3 choirs! Idiot!

This is what I live for, right?
