This last weekend, I got the slower pace I was craving.
Since it was Good Friday, we got off at noon. Now, I know that most people don't get any time off for Good Friday, but I work at a Christian college. They give the students (and professors) all day off. So remind me why staff has to work half a day?
Anyway, I got home and went for a run. Covered close to 3.5 miles, including some hills. Boy, was it painful and slow going, but I made it. I spent the rest of the day catching up on TV and finally watching a movie I had borrowed from some friends months ago. Wasn't the best, but I finally got it off my list.
Saturday was a very lazy day. I started by finishing my book. Then I went to ultimate Frisbee. We actually had a total of 8 people show up, so we had a good game of 4 on 4. Hopefully, this is a sign of the game coming back to life. Came home and watched a movie I'd had on my DVR since June. At least I got what I paid for with it.
Sunday started at church. We had one combined service, and it was packed. I got there a couple minutes late, and barely got a parking spot and a seat.
Sunday afternoon, Daniel and I went over to the Scroggins for dinner. They fixed a great meal, and we had a good time hanging out with people and playing a few games.
When I got back, I still headed over to Joe and Erica's for a little Middleman (I still miss that show) and fellowship.
Yes, for a quiet weekend, I was still fairly busy, especially on Sunday. But I felt like it was slower. I really think that extra few hours on Friday really helped with that. Now I am rested up and ready for the fast pace that will be the next few weekends. May looks to be a slower month, at least for now. We'll see how it turns out.
