I feel like I am running around like a chicken with my head cut off! I love the month of October, but somehow it is also the busiest month for my family......right up there with December......
So, if I don't get a lot of posting done, here is why. Our weekend was FULL to the brim of activities. I went to bed last night thinking that this was the fastest weekend I've ever had!
Friday night we attended the local football teams homecoming. We had 3 of our high school girls on the homecoming court and 1 guy who plays for the team. This was the first time we had ever taken the girls to a football game. They had fun - I think. Even though M. thought they were playing tag. We have obviously been neglectful parents in allowing our girls to go to sporting events.....what with football being tag and soccer being kickball!
On Saturday, " Hook" was on TV and since my girls had never seen it, we all sat down as a family in our pj's and watched the movie. They loved it. Then, the little girl I keep, S. had her first birthday party. It was a lot of fun on her grandpa's farm. There was lots of room to run and play and lots of animals to look at. And what could be better than pink cupcakes, pink m&m's and pink cookies. The girls were on a sugar high all evening!
Yesterday of course, was church and then the local community theatre is doing Cinderella right now. So, the girls and I went to see the production. It was a lot of fun and we even had 3 friends who were part of the production - it was great seeing them on stage, the girls really enjoyed that.
That brings me to today and I don't even know where to start. I have the regular house cleaning chores of course, but this week is just more business! Tonight I have bible study - which with all the business I still have two days worth of work to finish before tonight. Hopefully I will get it done (sorry Deidre!). Tomorrow night hubby has a meeting at church, Wednesday is FEAST and our regular Wednesday night activities. We are going to offer our girls another new experience this weekend. We will leave Thursday afternoon to go camping in Blairville, GA. Lots of our family will be joining us on this trip and my mom even did some early Christmas shopping and got us a new tent, some air mattresses, and a heater (she doesn't want her girls getting cold)--Thanks Grammy and Granddaddy! While we are there we may even visit this festival. Should be fun. My oldest, A. turns 6 on Saturday. We will drive home that day and attend a church wide picnic. On Sunday afternoon after church we will do cake and ice cream with the family. I hope - I haven't even found time to send out her invitations yet or planned a cake or anything!!!. Hopefully today............. And sometime this week I need to fit in a hair cut and decide (for sure) if I want to grow it out or cut it shorter......my indecisiveness is maddening!
That sums up this week for us but the business just continues on right through...........well - maybe sometime after January 15th I can settle down some.
I am usually not this disorganized, nor am I usually this busy. I know the devil is trying to use this business to get me distracted from spending time daily with my Lord and growing closer to Him. Will you pray for me this week that I will be mindful of that and MAKE time for Him?
I know that each of you are as busy as I am so I will be praying for all of you too!
Have a great week and maybe I will find time to post sometime before 2008!
