This has been a long week for me. I'm very glad that today is Friday. I had my biweekly manager's meeting today. Dealing with a parental director who is a control freak is taxing. I just keep my mouth shut and do the best to get through the meeting.
It seems that every moment of the week has been filled with activities. I've been to three meetings and had two other sponsee meetings. I've finished up some service work for the district and will be attending the district meeting tomorrow. Plus, I've done my work for which I'm gainfully employed. Add to that last night's work on the boat's electrical system, and I'm a tired puppy.
I have also stayed up way later than usual being glued to the news. It's like watching a train wreck. Finally, I get enough of the bickering to see that nothing is going to be resolved. I am stunned at the amount of misinformation being slung about and the malevolence that tops that off. It does not make for much serenity.
Last night, a suspect was arrested in the murder of a friend's sister that I wrote about last month. She was involved with drugs, got in with some bad people, and was shot. Now a 21 year old has been arrested. So the family will now have a long ordeal of the trial and all the stuff that goes along with that. I am afraid that my friend may be drinking too much. She is gaunt, hollow eyed with grief and anger. She is driven to see justice. I wonder at what price.
I am going to leave work a bit early today. Then I'm going to the boat, taking a nap and working on doing some varnishing (or vanishing--thanks Daave!). More electrical work is in store for tomorrow. Enjoy your Friday.
