One month from Christmas Day
The day after Thanksgiving is always a weird one. For one, I’m usually recovering from my Turkey Day feasting. Additionally, it’s a Friday, yet it feels sort of like a Monday. And, since a lot of people are off work that day, it almost seems like it’s a Saturday. So it’s odd.
Anyway, this morning I went with Dad and my three oldest brothers to have a little meeting at McDonald’s. It wasn’t anything fancy, but we just sat and talked about different things going on with our different businesses, things relating to the church, the ministry, and other things. We’ve got a lot of things to look forward to!
In the afternoon, I edited this week’s edition of “Safe At Home.” I would later take a trip over to St. Louis in order to deliver a copy.
This evening, Paul, John, Mark and I went over to the east Belleville YMCA. We ran into our Grandpa Arndt there. He and Grandma are preparing to leave on a three-week trip to Berlin, so it was neat to get to see him again before they take off.
After the workout was finished and we returned home, I hopped in the truck and took off for St. Louis. As I drove through downtown, I was amazed to see the Busch Stadium construction project. For one, the old Busch is about halfway knocked down, so it almost looks like the Roman Coliseum or something. Also, the lights for the new Busch are on as they are working around the clock in order to have the stadium ready for Opening Day in April. It’s really exciting. I’m looking seeing my first game in the new ballpark.
Now it’s time to get some shut-eye. I’ve been doing a little bit better at getting to bed at a decent hour.
