My Week, In Great Detail
This will just be a typical week. Not a specific week that was. Granted, there’s not really such a thing as typical. But I’ll give it a shot. And it won’t be as detailed as the incredibly boring day I described in yesterday’s post.
- When you’re on staff with a church, Sundays mean church. That’s not a complaint. I love knowing that I’ll be spending about half of my day doing work that I love to do.
- Lunch… sometimes this involves eating with a group of really awesome people. If I’m feeling anti-social or anti-spending-money, I just go home and eat in my room.
- A nap… if I’m very lucky.
- Whatever I feel like… ‘Cause it’s Sunday night and I’m gonna have a long week ahead of me.
- Ugh… This is just about the most dreaded day of the week. But then, if Monday didn’t exist, we’d all just hate Tuesdays, amirite?
- I make the long drive to work and I do what I have to do to get by for roughly 8 hours.
- Monday evenings are usually pretty chill. I should probably never describe anything as chill. I apologize.
- Tuesday is a lot like Monday in that I make a long drive to work and do what I have to do to get by for roughly 8 hours.
- Tuesday evening is awesome because I meet with my small group from church. It’s a great time spent discussing scripture and praying for one another.
- Then I go to bed because I’m an old man who wakes up way too early on school days.
- Wednesday is a lot like Monday and Tuesday… you get the picture.
- Except that I also make sure that the curriculum for kids ministry is ready to go for the following Sunday.
- Thursday… like the other days.
- Except that I also piece together the weekly e-newsletter for the church. I kind of love doing that, actually.
- Friday… like the other days. Except that it’s Friday and that is somehow always better than the alternative.
- And then on Friday evening… well, that’s reserved for partying. Because I’m a pretty serious partier. Just kidding. I don’t actually do much unless friends have suggested doing something on a social level. Even then, I don’t always participate thanks to my introverted antisocial tendencies.
- I don’t have to work. Except when I do. And by work, I mean I often go into the church office to make sure everything for Sunday’s kids ministry stuff is ready to go.
- The rest of the day is mine to do with as I please. Reading… movie watching… catching up on the few TV shows I just happen to be addicted to…
I know I’m leaving things out. Because reading back over these items makes it seem like my typical week isn’t actually that busy. But it sure feels busy when I’m living it.
