this is your brainon a new job.
I love my new job; it's my first chance to really be in charge of a congregation, even if it is an interim position.
But I've discovered that the energy to get up to speed in a new place has really also, well, made me stupid in other areas.
The last time I was in charge in a congregation, it was temporary--and it was a congregation I knew very well. This is quite different.
So there have been some stupid things that have happened. Things I have done, things I have left undone. Some I can't blog about, but the outward sign of my inward state was smacking the passenger side mirror off the car on the garage last week (mirror is now replaced, and duct tape remnants scraped off, to the tune of $$$, which, added to the $$$ for some power steering work and $$$ for an oil leak, also contributed to my spacey mood this week).
Lord, I'm slowly learning to accept that I'm not perfect, but if you could put my brain back together for next week, I'd really, really appreciate it.
