So I'm presently killing time as I wait to head off to work. I'm working a split shift today - 12:30 until 9:30 - and the only saving grace to the whole day is that I get to spend it with patients. On Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday of each week I spend 3 hours and 15 minutes in "group" where we process our feelings and thoughts and it is this processing that accounts for so much of the 'education' in clinical pastoral education (CPE). I don't mind it, really, but I will admit that I don't especially like sitting in a room for hours at a time.
So here's the plan for the next few weeks: I'm working the overnight on Saturday (4pm Saturday - 8am Sunday). This means that I have Friday off (yeah!) and that I'll have Sunday to rest (yipee!). I work all five days next week, and then I'm heading to Nashville on Friday evening to play the Nashville Feis. This is their fifth feis, I think, and I was lucky enough to play the first three. As one very much receptive to Southern Hospitality, I look forward to playing for this feis and spending time with many dance teachers and musicians I've not seen for a very long time.
I think I posted this already, but I'm too lazy to re-read my entries so I'll post it here. I will be making my First Vows on August 13th, 2006 in Detroit. (It's Michele's birthday, too, so it can be a double celebration). Since it's mostly my family who reads this blog, I'm issuing this as your invitation...though I don't suspect many in the Hagan family have a choice to come or not as Grandma has already begun making plans for the event. Hopefully some of the Irish dancing people will be able to make it (Anne Hall!) but we'll have to wait and see about that.
My new favorite taste treat is the Dunkin Donuts French Vanilla Coffee with cream and sugar. I'm finding that DD's coffee has a smoky, almost acrid aftertaste when consumed with no additives but, with the addition of cream (fat) and sugar (empty carbs) it is wholly transformed in a delicious concoction. The other flavors are nice, too, but French Vanilla wins out in my book. In fact, I think I'm going to stop blogging right now and go and buy one with the gift certificates my Uncle Jack gave me for Christmas.
Have a good day!
