It’s Monday, and I feel like I need another weekend to recover from the past two days. It was a good weekend though in many ways.
The “main event” this weekend was to go to London to attend an 80th Birthday Party for the father of a close friend (and our friend too!). It was a great party (outdoors, thanks to great weather!) where we were able to connect with friends from our past. A lot of these people we hadn’t seen in years. It was great to catch up!
We were also able to connect with family on both sides as we visited with my father-in-law and mother-in-law, and visit as well with my brother and my wifes’s brother’s family. On Sunday we were able to go to Woodstock on the way home and visit with Nancy’s brother-in-law as well.
Connections are good.
BUT… it was also a weekend of disconnects. It was the first weekend since our family left the our church. It was very weird not to know anything about what was happening at our old church on Sunday — no emails about Audio or Video needs; no advance copies of the bulletin to proofread; no recordings to edit (yet, at least). It was very surreal. Even when I’m on vacation I feel connected as I’m usually connected through emails and such.
And so another week begins.
