Well, it’s been an interesting week.
I haven’t gotten to bed early enough each night to be good about getting up at 5am. I only got up early 2 days this past week and only worked out 3 days all week. I also got called from a few people on my bad mood lately so I have been working on that.
On a positive note, I finally finished reading The Seven Storey Mountain by Thomas Merton. The Seven Storey Mountain refers to Purgatory, especially Dante’s description. It was an interesting story, but for a bio I could have gotten enough from the wikipedia article. I didn’t find inspiration in his on again, off again struggle (although I found it very real and believable). But his contemplation and observation of life from the perspective of a believer deep in the heart of his faith was great so I will be sure to read some of his contemplative writings at some point.
Friday night Anthony’s sister and boyfriend came over. We had dinner and watched The Dark Knight. Only Anthony and Connor had seen it, so we all enjoyed it.
Today was a baby shower for a friend from school. Tomorrow is two funerals for relatives of friends at church. Time is short.
Speaking of which, I need to work on Les Miserables now.
