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.
