Food is for the stomach and the stomach is for food, but God will do away with both of them. Yet the body is not for immorality, but for the Lord, and the Lord is for the body.
1 Cor 6:13
You know how last term I commented that I hoped this term would be less crazy-busy? All I have to say to that is: Ha! Ha! New commitments pile atop the previous ones, creating a wobbly mountain of responsibility. Consider today: I will spend from 10:00 to 5:00 on campus, busy the whole time. Or yesterday, which should have been incredibly productive: at 9:30 yesterday (not long after I got up, having no commitments until 2:00), a mailman knocked on our door. He had the remaining six packages Ian and I had sent ourselves, and so I spent three hours unpacking those and fitting their contents into our life here. This involved washing — by hand — all 61 pieces of our new silverware set, plus a dozen new kitchen implements (spatulas, spoons, the like), plus two sets of new dishes, plus six new ice cream sundae cups. Afterwards, I never wanted to see any of the dishes (but especially the 16 teaspoons) again. However, the arrival of these boxes is precipitating a general straightening-up that our drawers have needed for quite some time. Plus now we have three boxes full of all my books, a vast expansion of our reading library; also, we received all our DVDs, which expanded our video library as well.
