* busy round these parts …

Posted on May 21st, 2011 by melinda in Another day in the life of me.

What a week!  It’s been busy but great.  I should say that I apologize for not posting any more of Christopher and Anna’s prom pics but I do have a very valid reason … my computer will no longer read my camera card.  I’m not sure what’s wrong with it, but I am certain it’s a job for Thad not me.  So until I see Thad, I doubt I will be able to post any pictures of any thing.

Monday night was the only night this past week that I was home and I was actually productive, getting some much needed laundry done along with a few other things that I had been neglecting … can you say orange slime in my toilet? 

On Tuesday night, Cathy and I met with our soon to be new pastor Scott, his wife Windy and their children for a dinner/get up to date meeting.  I think we are all on or around the same page for Scott and Windy to begin their ministry at our church come July.  I should point out that we are still protesting mr. preacher man and Anita leaving.  I think Eric and Scott would make great co pastors!  Although Eric keeps trying to explain to me that God has a different plan and as stubborn as I am, I am not qualified to argue with God. 

Wednesday night was church as normal.  I was home by 9 pm or so and thought it was going to be an early night, but I was incorrect.  Anna’s car was attacked by a deer on her way home.  The deer jumped and landed square on the hood of her car while she was driving home on our road.  Thankfully, she was not hurt but the deer nor the car fared so well.  We are now waiting on the insurance adjuster to show up and determine what will be done to her car. 

Thursday accidentally turned in to a vacation day for me.  We started out the day taking care of some insurance stuff for Anna and I eventually just ended up calling the boss and asking if I could take a vacation day. 

Thursday & Friday evenings were spend at the church house doing landscaping and planting flowers.  It was a project that Cathy suggested and it turned out beautifully if I do say so myself.  We were blessed with plenty of stuff to plant, all donated except the potting soil and round up along with plenty of help for labor.  Our new church house now has it’s make up on and is looking exceptionally lovely. 

One really nice added bonus to the workdays at church was that I got to spend some quality time with people that I don’t normally get to hang out with very often … and Roger grilled us all hot dogs Friday night so none of us had to cook.  That may have been my favorite part of the workdays.  I have heard a nasty rumor that someone coaxed their sister in to taking a horrendous picture of me with my fanny in the air, but I refuse to believe that said person would ever think of doing such a thing! 

Today was once again spent at the church house.  I went to help with the vbs yard sale but Bobbi and Judy had that under control so we ended up finishing up the flowers, putting out mulch, sowing grass and spreading hay.  My fore head is sunburned. 

And tonight … the best mother in law in the universe fixed me lasagna for dinner.  All I can say is, life is good and I am so very blessed.

Now I am taking my aching out of shape self to bed.  Sweet dreams.
