(Come on…admit it, in your head you secretly added “with Seth Meyers” to that blog title didn’t you?)
As I’ve mentioned over and over (and over and over) again this month, I am BUSY. My youth season kicks off this week, our church is packing up and moving office locations, we just had our kickoff picnic today, and I had to lead worship at church. So, yes, this weekend was a busy one, but it was also filled with some good things, things which I’m choosing to think and write about, rather than bore you again and again with my whining.
Yesterday we had breakfast with this lovely lady. We are bff’s. And it had been 2 months since we’d seen each other, and so to have a solid 2 hour breakfast date with her did my (and Ben’s heart good).
Then we went to the Binbrook Fair. We are neither from Binbrook, nor do we live that close to it, but I went for an ulterior purpose (which I’ll tell you about in a minute), and thought we’d make a family day out of it. We invited our neighbours who have a little boy 12 days younger than Ellie and just had a great time enjoying the sun, brisk weather, friends, and fall activities.
I also went to the fair to check this out:
This is my new venture. I’ll tell you all about it soon.
And then we NAPPED. Oh sweet nap.
Today, as mentioned ,was a full “work” day for me. (Yes, church going is my choice, but I also happen to work at one, which means often, I’m busy with tasks). I hauled my butt out of bed while the clock still had a 6 on it (and I kind of have an unspoken rule that I don’t get out of bed until there’s AT LEAST a 7 showing), lead worship and then helped coordinate our church kickoff picnic. It was so busy, and I don’t always thrive in situations where I feel like there’s a lot to do, and at the same time, lots of people I should be connecting with. But nevertheless, the kickoff was a success. We did things right, by having 6 foot subs for everyone (ok, so not EVERYONE got their own, we got 5…but that’s enough to feed an army….of 125 people…..), a cake launch (leftover cake from a church function+waterballoon launchers+each team picking their church staff member as their target=epic fun) and to top it all off we got Baskin Robbins to come cater an ice cream sundae bar at the end.
And now it’s 8:30pm, and I’ve only been home for half an hour (we had a small group meeting this afternoon/evening) all day.
I’m trying not to think about the pile of work ahead of me this week, and just revel in the last few hours of this weekend, which will likely involve me being horizontal on a couch, with a movie and my hubs massaging my feet. (A girl can dream right?)
