That Moment When......

Today, was full of things that I am going to label "That Moment When...." - while nothing horrible or even major happened it was full of "that moment when" type moments.

That Moment When:
  • I wanted to be able to call up my WTS classmates and say "Let's meet at Los Aztecas for lunch and a margarita. It has been a long morning already and I need time with you all."
  • I wanted to throw my computer out my office window after I restarted it for the 18th (literally) time today because it wasn't doing what it was suppose to be doing
  • I wish and longed for an easier way to pay off debt rather than slowly but surely (it student loan debt and we just want it gone)
  • I wanted to be able to call a friend who has been distant as of lately - and it is hard when I have sent countless facebook messages, made many a calls and left messages, and have text frequently - with no response
  • I wanted to meet up with friends for dinner or drinks afterwards - just to shoot the breeze and catch up on life 
    • distance sucks
  • I wanted to go back to summer 2005 and spend time with that group of people
  • I wanted to know if/when (it is beginning to feel more like an if at this point) our house will ever sell so that I can try to plan some time to move and I knew if I could dream about other houses or other places to live or if I shouldn't even be looking (I look at houses online about once a week in the pipe dream hope that our house sells)
  • I daydream about having a "traditional" job with 8:00am - 5:00pm hours with weekends and major holidays off
  • I wished my to-do list was finished
  • I wanted the camp I am co-directing to run itself
I did also have several great moments:
  • I crossed many a thing off my to-do list
  • I booked a flight for my favorite continuing education event and it was only $208 and it is a direct flight and the time of the flights are awesome (I didn't even know amazing flights at a decent price existed anymore)
  • I thought I had to write a sermon for this weekend and my colleague is actually doing it (this saves some serious time - I do enjoy preaching it is just a matter of budgeting my time to give it what it deserves)
  • I went on a fabulous run tonight with my favorite golden retriever
  • I books a group campsite for a group from our church to go camping the first weekend in September
    • and I have people who are interested in going 
    • this is a first of this type of event for our church
  • I got into the mission trip site & the week I was hoping for for next summer 
    • it is crazy how early you have to book this crap
  • We served our 1,000 pb&j sandwich (sack lunch w/ veggies, sandwich, fruit, and whatever else we put in them) during operation sandwich with the aid of over 450 volunteers
    • take that hunger - take that people who said there wasn't a need - take that people who repeatedly told us we will fail - eat up kids!

How is your day going?
Do you ever have "that moment when"?
What was the best thing that happened today?

  1. Sounds like your "good" list totally kicked the other list in the booty! That's a LOT to accomplish in a day and surely makes me feel like even more the procrastinator that I am. A few things on my good list today so far (it's only 2pm): i gathered all the motivation inside me that I could and exercised and my 15 month old has given me more kisses and hugs than I know what to do with. http://www.momistabeginnings.com
