Lazy time

Feb. 26th, 2010

Back in the swing of things here. This week we had a lazy day on our free day, only leaving to go to the post office (straggler thank-you notes). Then we snuggled up with a Reese’s peanut butter cup, two wee bags of thai sweet chili crisps (chips), and caught up on the recent episodes of Glee. We are six weeks or so behind yall in the states, and it is very tempting to watch ahead, but our frustratingly slow internet connection squashed that impulse. The Reese’s were smuggled in from Scotland by Lukas, who was visiting his mother and sister there last week. N. Ireland has not figured out the beautiful combination of chocolate and peanut butter, and Lukas knew that I had been pining after some. Then Jeff napped, I read a book, and life was superbly lazy.

Later this week we had our supervision meetings to talk about how we are doing in Clanabogan. They are modeled for young co-workers, and the sheet we had to guide the meeting was rather frustrating. Most of the questions do not apply to us. So we laughed off many of them and had good, productive conversations instead. Jeff’s meeting brought about a change in his daily life which has been a big relief to him. You could ask him about it, but this is not the proper place to type it out. My meeting was just nice to have—no changes really, but a good conversation and good self reflection. Both meetings were very positive, and we were grateful for the reinforcement. I have been feeling good about the way things are going in the house generally. There are always little hiccups here and there, but the fact that they have all been little things is great. Somehow this week we are both very tired (I blame the Olympics, which air live starting at 11pm) but feeling good about our accomplishments in Rainbow house.
