Tabling thought

Tuesdays tend to be so full that I don't write, unless I get up early enough to do so. I suppose I could have done that yesterday, because my upstairs neighbors now have two big dogs instead of one (the result of a breakup and a new roommate), and they like to play in the living room in the early morning, which is also the ceiling of my sleeping quarters. I'm giving it the week before I talk it over with them, but honestly, I don't know what they could do about it short of getting rid of the dogs or moving out.

In any case, it's hard to get back to writing sometimes. There are some thoughts I want to flesh out (on "testing everything" from 1 Thessalonians 5:21, on some who say "Lord, Lord" as depicted in Matthew 7:21-23, and on the idolatrous attitudes we talked about in staff meeting this morning), but I'm not in the mood to deal with any of it now.

Part of that is about shifting gears, something I just plain hate most of the time. Tonight Connor is coming over, and I don't want to get into that thoughtful space just to be disrupted and needing to be social. The social isn't what I mind (I'm glad he's coming over); it's simply that I can't juggle all of it, so I have to choose. So the thoughts will wait.
