Ok, when I broached the subject of having myself tested for ADD/Aspergers, my beloved asked, "why do you need to do that" For someone who feels slightly schizophrenic, that was not helpful. LOL I told her, "for one thing it would 'encourage' my employer to make some accommodations for me". Now, I am not looking for special treatment, but if I need help to excel and this be more productive for my employer, wouldn't it behoove them to help me out? Still, it is going to cost some money out of pocket. Something that is in short supply. All of this is on top of me fighting my own pride in continuing to pursue this. *sigh* At least Heaven won't be like this... :-)

Has anyone ever seen "Conspiracy Theory"? I don't know why, but I really like this movie. I like Mel Gibson. I've liked him ever since I first saw him in "Mad Max" and "Road Warrior" back in High School. Even with the 'controversy' of late with him, I still enjoy his movies.

Speaking of movies... I have been in the mood to watch the "Back to the Future" series, much to the chagrin of my beloved. She is not into those kind of sappy/silly movies.

I've also been tempted to call in to work, ask some friends to watch the kids for a day (or two), and just sit and watch all three of the "Lord of the Rings" movies - director's cut of course - back to back. I tell you what, when those movies come out in High Definition, along with the new Hobbit movie (2009, 2010), I just might dive in and buy a BlueRay DVD player, and a HD TV.

There is an excellent interview with Sinclair Ferguson over at the Sovereign Grace Blog. If you enjoy his teachings, or the man, I encourage you to jump on over there and have a read. :-)

Well, not much more to ramble on about today. I will be spending the weekend with not only my own brood, but a friend and her four kids from out of state. Please pray for my sanity. ;-)
Verse for today:
Hebrews 12 : 3-6, ESV
Consider him who endured from sinners such hostility against himself, so that you may not grow weary or fainthearted. In your struggle against sin you have not yet resisted to the point of shedding your blood. And have you forgotten the exhortation that addresses you as sons?

“My son, do not regard lightly the discipline of the Lord,
nor be weary when reproved by him.
For the Lord disciplines the one he loves,
and chastises every son whom he receives.”

When you call in to work, I would hope it wouldnt be "sick leave" -- :)

We have a number of Christians who use sick days for less than honest reasons and we need to model transparency and integrity in the workplace.

Sermon over!

Thanks for the link too! Love your stuff.

Agreed! No, I would not use a sick leave day - even though my employer is very generous with that. It would be a personal/mental health day. :-)

Thank you for stopping by and reading.
