The Sunday Post is a meme sponsored by the wonderful Kimba, the Caffeinated Book Reviewer. It’s a chance to share news. A post to recap the past week, showcase books and things we have received and share news about what is coming up for the week on our blog.
My indexing business has really picked up in the last week or two! This is great for our finances, but not quite so good for the blog, since I need to spend a lot more time working. I’ll do my best to keep up, but I’ll probably have to pull back a little on posting during the next few weeks.
Things are going well in other areas as well. My children’s and youth choruses had their first rehearsal last Sunday, and I was really pleased at how quickly and well they started learning the music. And I’m also enjoying the music that the adult chorus is doing; we had our first rehearsal this week as well.
The computer saga continues; it’s been sent off for repair, and now it’s just “wait and see.” Thank goodness my husband’s computer is in good shape! (Knock wood.)
As for the government shutdown, thankfully, our family hasn’t been financially impacted so far. My heart goes out to all the people who are impacted, either through being furloughed or from the myriad other effects of the shutdown. We’re not entirely unaffected; our church on the base where my husband works uses priests on contract rather than military chaplains, so they are not allowed to work. We have no Mass and no music, just readings and prayers led by a lay reader. It’s a small thing compared with loss of a paycheck, but it’s disappointing. Here’s hoping that Congress gets its act together soon!
