thursday circus

Keep the circus going inside you, keep it going, don’t take anything too seriously, it’ll all work out in the end.    David Niven

I remember a time before Facebook, E-vites, or Outlook calendar sharing when people, or should I say people more organized than me, would produce a memo book or calendar – the spiral kind to set a date.  My memory has always had limited RAM.  Technology improved,  I try to immediately put the event in the calendar app on my phone.    However, like tonight, I am wondering if our periodic family gathering occurred because someone penciled in Thursdays (tonight).    From time to time,  my tendency to leave scheduling to my spouse will catch me unaware of plans that were on her calendar for a week or more.

Process improvement on my part yesterday was  scheduling an appointment with the groomers for both dogs on Friday.   Then my scheduling “assistant” rescheduled their appointment to coincide with a friend’s daughter “hired” to straighten up my home today in advance of a dinner party scheduled tomorrow evening.

To our church family coming over tomorrow,  I have little of my own wisdom to impart.    Over the years we have dined with an elder couple we have known nearly twenty years; they still teach us how to have family dinners where laughter is the main course.  And perhaps this is something I can pass along.   Among his children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren,  the several I know  have dynamic families.   A family circus is not a bad thing after all.
