Today was really busy in a I didn't do that much kind of way. I got up early did the second to last day of my bible study (it was so good and I am soooo sad that it is almost over), and then I went walking with a couple of great girls. They are such sweet friends to me! Especially since after I left to come back home, I realized that I chattered the whole time we walked and they were content to just listen. =)
Then I did have just a bit of down time when I really should have been cleaning house.....but I didn't -- I caught up on my blog reading a little bit and looked at some super cute idea's for the birthday's we've got coming up in our house. Then I took a bath.
By then, it was time for an early lunch. After our early lunch, I got everyone ready to go to the city pool, drove over and picked up a friend and then drove back to the pool, and it was closed. And just in case anyone who runs our towns rec. dept. is reading this, I will now lodge my complaint...
Dear Rec. Dept,
Sprinkling is not raining! Nor is it a reason to close the pool!!!! I bought a season pass to your establishment and since you were closed today, I had to drive my gaggle of children over to the next town and pay$12.50 for us to go swimming there, only to stay for 1.5 hours before my baby needed to come home to have a bottle.....I mean really! Next time, just admit that you simply choose to stay closed today.....sprinkling? What in the world?!!?
Ahem....thanks for the aside there.
So, after the pool debacle, I came home and finished making supper. Chicken taco's -- YUM!!
And now, I am sitting here making my list of things I have to accomplish before heading out of town tomorrow.
Where am I going?
Well, I am just tickled pink to tell you that I am heading out tomorrow to go to The Deeper Still Conference. I'm squealing in my head even as I write this! I am driving there tomorrow alone (which doesn't make me squeal b/c I don't like driving in cities that I don't know well)-- and then I will check myself into my hotel room where I will have a big KING size bed all to myself tomorrow night! I mean -- not only do I get to see Beth Moore, Priscilla Shirer and Kay Arther, (that alone is awesome), I also get to meet up with some of my favorite girlfriends when I get there and we get to have an evening and a whole day of worship and fellowship together, AND I get to sleep for a whole night without anyone waking me up.....
I am beyond excited - if you can't tell!!!
BUT - I have a huge list of things to accomplish before I head out tomorrow (I really want to leave earlier than necessary so I can go shopping and look for a new pair of shoes -- mine are falling apart). The list is:
*Go to the grocery store for my family.
*Make a list of things I need from the grocery store so I won't forget anything as my family won't have a car large enough to go anywhere.
* Finish my last day of bible study....so sad!!!
*Email my bible study girls
*Get packed **Don't forget the ticket!!!**
*Put new batteries in the camera --- I mean - I will definitely be taking pictures this weekend.
* Figure out directions to the hotel and then to the Coliseum.....since I don't have a GPS system.
*Clean house some (remember how I caught up on my blogs instead of doing that earlier)
*Finish filling out and mail M's birthday invites (a princess party- AGAIN!)
* Love on my family some....this is the first time I've left B.....I fear he isn't going to like it much!
Needless to say, I won't be posting anything tomorrow -- but hey! I just thought of something -- I have a laptop now and I can take it with me.....Hmmmm - I'm wondering if the hotel has free Wifi?!!? That is a thought!
Well - if they do and if I'm not too busy visiting with my friends, then maybe I will drop in and let you know what we are all up to.....And I know you will all be holding your breath waiting to hear from me......just humor me and pretend you will be, ok. =)
Ya'll have a great weekend!
