Booms

Yep, it’s that time of year.  There are booms going off all over the place as all the local communities begin celebrating the Fourth of July.  For me, it’s more of a nuisance since I’ve been awake since 4:10 a.m.  I had the 6:30 a.m. Mass and then went to a funeral in North Judson which was exactly an hour and a half away from my parish.

I got back early afternoon and went to breakfast/lunch/dinner around 3:00 p.m.  That’s not really wise for anyone to do but even more dumb for someone who had diabetes.  Oh well, I survived.

However, I cannot sleep because of the booming noises that should go on for at least another hour.

When I was young, I would be outside watching the skies while lighting off ground displays.  As I got older, I would retreat from outside when the mosquitoes were bad and watch fireworks from my window or on television.  Nowadays, I just try to go back to sleep.  This getting older thing really changes a person. 🙂

Tomorrow is a holiday so our parish office is closed and the Pastoral Center is closed as well.  I have the 9:00 a.m. Mass for the parish and then have a free day.  I won’t know what to do with myself but I’ll find some way to be busy, I can practically guarantee that.

I hope you have a safe and enjoyable Fourth.  I’m glad for those of you outside right now that the rain held off!  Until tomorrow.
