This post is not a long one. Things have just compounded to the point were I can't put any real thought into a single topic or event. This effort is to merely sum up this week.
I came into the office this morning (Friday) with five meetings under my belt between Cloverdale and Area 30. Granted, the second week of the month is my busy week with the Cloverdale and South Putnam school boards, the Cloverdale Town Council and the Area 30 Board. There's room for some more drama with at least one of them, though.
I also got the news Thursday evening that my grandpa on my mom's side passed away. He had been going through serious heart complications for the past four weeks or so.
Along with soon having to get on my capstone project for my master's degree, I feel sort of exasperated. I love my job, but I think people forget sometimes that we have lives outside of it. Everything going on in the background can have an influence, and we work through them. Some weeks are just more hectic than others for each of us.
We get out of a rut with something to look forward. I'm excited to cover training with local firefighters in a week. Thanks to Greencastle Fire Assistant Chief Rob Frank for letting me know, as we've both talked about doing something like this for the paper.
For now, I'm going to set back with celebrating my sister's graduation from Purdue this weekend. If it doesn't rain, I just might go for a joyride in the Beetle on Sunday.
