What’s Normal?

I’ve been travelling so much lately that when I go back to my chair in my office I might not find it if it doesn’t have “22C” posted above it.

Today is my first full day back home after 2 weeks of travelling.  I was scheduled to leave for Albania on May 16th, but had to delay due to an illness.  I left 2 days later and returned last Friday, May 27th.  By the time I got home it was 2 am Saturday, May 28th.  I woke up at 8:30 am, spent a few hours with my kids, cut the grass and immediately left for the airport again to go to Atlanta.  Upon arriving in Atlanta, I went immediately to a church planning meeting that lasted until after midnight.  Memorial Day Monday was my scheduled return and I landed back in Ohio just in time to watch my daughter’s evening concert in the park.

So here I am on Tuesday, ready to go back to the office.  I was going to say “back to work” – but I haven’t stopped working for the last 2 weeks – literally.  I’m not complaining.  I love what I do.  I just am a little confused today about what “normal” looks like.  Do you ever feel that way?

Check back and I’ll update you on what’s going on in those places.

Do I ever feel that way? Thanks for asking? I guess you are normal!


Normal only means “Majority”.
