First, I was about 10 minutes late to every school today. This so very unlike me! Then, at the high school I work at, a few colleagues were commenting about some strange noises coming from the outside windows. I, of course, assumed it was falling ice from the building, but as a joke, I asked them if they had a ghost in the room. To my utter surprise, I got this answer: no, that would be the fourth floor. What?! Apparently, a student committed suicide on the fourth floor years ago, and there are stories and reports of unexplained things happening in places like the choir room. Maybe I've just been watching Ghost Hunters too much lately, but it kinda creeped me out!
I was just kinda out of it today. I had a lingering headache that 3 Aleve in the morning couldn't cure. But then my evening got much better. I was able to take a nap, which helped me feel a bit better. Then, I got a text message from the boy I'm maybe dating? We've been on one date and have been talking for a month. Is that dating? Anyway, anytime someone calls me gorgeous, I just have to smile. Then I decided to take a drive...at 9:30 p.m. If you know me, you know that I love to take a good drive. I don't know if it is the vestibular input that is calming or the idea of being in control of the car, or just getting away from the house where I have an unending to-do list waiting for me, but I like driving a lot. Well, I turned on XM 117, one of my favorite channels, and the Fully Alive radio show was on. I love this show! And they were talking candidly about sex. I ended up driving around until 11 p.m. just to finish listening to the show! I find the theology related to relationships, marriage, and sex so fascinating. And, I've been wanting to get some books about it for a long time. I gave myself permission tonight to order those books since I am unable to attend the lecture series on the Theology of the Body starting in February at my church. My grad school classes interfere - boo! So, here is what I ordered:
Who knew that a single, 30-something, Catholic woman thought about sex so much? I cannot wait for these to arrive! I will have my own personal study of TOB going on in the midst of my graduate classes. Very exciting.
Thanks, God, for a great and holy way to end the evening. Jesus, I trust in you!
