Joe and Pneumonia: Never expected it was that. Flu maybe but fortunately, as the doctor said, we caught it early and the antibiotics are working. He's still coughing a lot and has pulled a muscle from doing so much of it but he's definitely improved some since Tuesday.
Work: Sometimes, deadlines collide. That has been the case this week and with a bit of help Thursday and Friday mornings from two wonderful ladies in the congregation, I managed to get published,copied, collated, folded and addressed and mailed:
- 225 monthly newletters
- 115 stewardship campaign packets
- 20 meeting reminder cards
- copying, folding, collating 60 bulletins
- folding 14 more
- prepping sanctuary for service Sunday
- checks and bookkeeping
- and other sundry duties as required
Merlin is a 2007 Mercury Milan dealer leftover. With only 75 miiles on him, he'll come with 34 months of a bumper to bumper warranty so that if anything happens I can take him to any Ford/Lincoln/Mercury dealer for service. 5 speed manual, a/c, heater, cd/am/fm and I believe he also has the plug in for mp3 (they made 2 versions and pretty sure this one has the connection). Tardis Blue with Beige interior. We trade in in a couple of hours. Photos will follow
Excited but a bit bummed as not having had any car payments for 10 years now, that part is so gonna take some getting used to.
