this morning i was sort of stressed because i found out late last night that i have jury duty again. i had it monday and had called in early each night this week to see if i had it again–after not having it at all the rest of the week, i called on friday almost as an afterthought, assuming i wouldn’t have it–but of course i did!
so i had to scramble to find someone to cover my classes, then end up cancelling two of my classes i couldn’t get covered, then give instructions to those covering my other two classes–which meant staying up late (for a pregnant lady) and waking up tired.
i didn’t get my house clean that night like i typically do on thursdays, to get ready for small groups the next day, so when i woke up to a floor needing vaccuuming, counters needing wiping, and a sink full of dirty dishes, i told bryan i felt so overwhelmed and just didn’t see how i was going to make it through the day.
he told me to go have breakfast while he took care of it, and went on to do those chores i never got to the night before; then when i got in the car to leave for jury duty, the cd in the car happened to be on one of my favorite songs–he had set it up the night before to be ready to play when i left that morning.
little things, but sometimes they make the difference between starting the day off rotten and starting it off wonderful.
