Good Morning, Company Girls!
Well, ALL the kids have just left for school!! Yea! Fridays, my youngest Megan, whom I try to homeschool, is required to attend the elementary school to remain on the school register and thus be able to be placed into a special class for high school. Would you believe me if I say that I am definitely counting the days? So, I usually call this as my 'day off''! I really do need it this week...although, unfortunately I probably wont be able to take the whole day....all this week, when I haven't been taking kids to appointments, I've been working on crafts......lots and lots of crafts.......not the ones that I would normally desire to do but when you're running a craft program for a Vacation Bible school during March Break at your church.....well, you're kind of forced into it. I've already averaged about 10 hours a day this week...so, that's about forty hours...and that doesn't count all the hours that I've spent shopping for the materials! God Bless the Dollar Stores! I would say I'm about 3/4's of the way done and I must have them all prepared for Sunday. I'm also the director of the VBS so I need next week to pull last minute stuff together......let's just say that I'm really looking forward to the week after March Break. I know, I know....you shouldn't wish your life away ....but....all I would really like is some time to do my quilting and a little reading !
Have you ever noticed that when nobody at the church wants a particular job that when you take on the job, that these people all of a sudden become the critics? There are a lot of people that maintain the thot that if you have breath left in your body that you need to be involved in some kind of ministry in the church...have you run across these type of people? The only problem with that is that when you get involved then you also become involved, unwillingly, with all the 'politic'ing in the church! I've decided that this truly sucks! (I know I'm dating myself!)
People...this is far too much stress....and if I want drama than I just have to look at my teens!
It's a good thing that I scheduled a massage for this morning...a month ago! .....and then...my teens don't know it yet...but...they'll be delivering fliers for the VBS this afternoon in the neighborhood around the church....I plan on bribing them with McDonalds!...food always works with teens!
Have a great weekend!
