Pardon Me While I Freak
Do you ever have times when you look at the next couple of days on your calendar and have a panic attack over all the stuff that somehow has to be accomplished at your hand?
* We begin Bible Release Time tomorrow. This is the program our church hosts which allows children from Grades 2-6 to attend Bible Classes one day per week. I teach those classes and tomorrow is the kick off. I’m typing this post as I wait for the copier to print worksheets for the kids.
* We have AWANA kick-off tonight. I just finished printing registration sheets in anticipation for a bigger than ever club year. Praying we have plenty of food. Not looking forward to cooking 160 weenies. Blech.
* The Girl is having a sleep over Friday night for her birthday. You may find it amusing that I’ve planned to do an at home version of a Libby Lou party for her friends. We pulled out all of Girl’s makeup today to see what kind of supplies we had and somehow I’ve ended up with glitter all over my face. Didn’t know it until I got to church so I’m wondering what our darlin’ church people will think their PW has been up to on the side.
I thought typing it all out would help with the hyperventilating that is going on over here.
It didn’t work.
I’m taking Donna’s advice and resorting to some prayer. Amazing how that can be the last thing we think of when it should have been first, huh?
Well typing about it probably wont work, but praying about it will – and so we will! Praying now…
The Girl’s party will be the talk of the kindergarten world! My 7 year old niece had a party like that (minus the sleepover…I think my sister wouldn’t have had any hair left the next day had the girls stayed that long). She and her friends LOVED it! Hope you all have a good time!
I just survived three days like that. This too shall pass, Lisa. This too shall pass!
Girl, if you get really stressed about Friday, call me and I’ll come help you! That’s my thing, you know. :)
Prayer is most definately important…It is amazing how we forget to slow our hurried minds and rest in God’s very capable and trustworthy hands. I am praying for you sweet siesta!
Your daughter’s bday party sounds like it is going to be fun! Enjoy it with her as she will only be 6 once and then she’ll get older way too quickly!
P.S…I’ve become a new auntie once again!!! My nephew Isaac was born Friday, Sept. 12 (check the blog for cute photos!)
yes, prayer is the answer. God will help you with it all!! Can I laugh at the glitter and make-up?lol!!! You are too precious for words. :)
Hang in there….we’re lifting you up in prayer!
…but do remember to breathe!
love and hugs,
Praying with you… and I totally understand…
But I also agree with tammy… Breathing is a good thing too :)
I read this earlier and couldn’t comment due to two kiddos on my lap, but I didn’t notice the glitter…and I meant to look!..lol! Walking in to that madhouse, thinking I was all being early and going to decorate my station and finding that all 600+ residents of our town got there early…Wild!
..I also love the new look! Like, really new, as in…since church? Tell me…TELL ME I didn’t not notice that?
p.s….I hate weiners too! yuck! Had I known you were cooking that many by yourself, I’d have come helped you!
Hope your day got less stressy! My best work pal and I were just talking yesterday about how prayer should be the first thing we do, and it’s almost always our “last resort.”
At least I know I am not the only one who doesn’t always get it.
Take care and God bless!
Been there. Done that!! Know that I’m covering you in prayer, girl–that’s all over, even the glitter!
Hey I wonder if God love glitter???
LOVE, LOVE, LOVE your new blog makeover!!!!! So scrapbook-y!!!!
You have a new look, cool!
Whoa!! love your facelift! It’s a beauty!
I love the new look as well! You can help me with mine sometime. When you have nothing else to do.
Prayer and chocolate.
Guaranteed to cure all.
My sis in law did this and got cheap flipflops from Hobby Lobby and did pedicures on all the girls.
