Love is a four letter word

Love warms my lips,
The four-letter-word,
The word I hesitate to use,
It makes me vulnerable,
It means I care,
It makes all of the other words moot
To speak it is to admit it.
To speak it is to strip naked - bare my heart - mean it - beg reciprocation -
Ten thousand angels are at my beck and call;  they guard my way.
I rejoice out loud 
Soft eyes wide-open, accepting my love as flowers accept sunshine
Leaves stir in the breeze and welcome me to rest in their shade.
It is music to me
and Bold

Earning my pay next week

It's going to be a busy week.  My work is wildly busy lately.  My old boss is now the acting president of the college I work at.  Oh yeah, and on July 1 he took over the position of CFO of the college.  So he is doing both of those things.  And, oh yeah, he didn't appoint an acting AVP (the position I support) so he's doing this job, too.


This week I'm bringing in four candidates for the AVP position.  There will be four days of interviewing this week.  I am supporting all the interviews and responsible for gathering all the recommendations and compiling them for review.

Oh yeah, they are moving my office this week.  I just found out last Friday.  I have to pack up the offices on Monday and Tuesday because the movers are coming to move everything on Wednesday.

Double nuts.

If this isn't enough, I need to schedule three full days of meetings with faculty, staff, and students from all over campus to meet with contracted evaluators from a national organization for campus facilities.  We are paying big money for this evaluation, so if it isn't complete, I'm wasting the college's money.

My week is nuttier than squirrel poop.

By the way, I haven't heard anything about the position I applied for.  I've been told that the search committee for that position is meeting next week.  Fingers crossed that the interview for the position isn't going to be scheduled for this week as well.

And, how's this for weird coincidence?  If, by chance, I get the new position I will find myself sitting in the exact same place I'm sitting right now.  (luckily I get to coordinate the moves)

Maybe I can get Sleeping Beauty to skip a nap or two and give me a hand.  (haha)

320.  Lazy Sunday afternoon
321.  Catching up on blogs I've been missing
322.  Hearing a great sermon in church this morning
323.  Spending quality time with my husband
324.  Fresh peaches
325.  Confident I can do the work I have ahead of me this week
