OK, first of all, I wrote this blog earlier today yet it has mysteriously disappeared so if this should happen to post twice, I won't be surprised!
It's been a crazy busy day today. We had our first day back at Good News Club today and it actually went a little better than I expected. We were short one adult volunteer and we were anticipating a 3rd youth volunteer but everything worked out just fine. A lot of kids are out sick I think but we still had around 75 or 80 there. This is the first time I've taken a lead roll instead of just doing music but it felt pretty decent. I think I'm working with someone I could really like so the team is off to a strong start.
I had planned on going to the funeral home because a gentleman from our church lost his mom. Unfortunately, by the time I got home there wasn't much time, and my car was being kind of stupid. I can't keep it running and I don't know why. I don't think it likes moisture very much; my problems always happen when there's a lot of rain or snow.
After I got back this evening, I called an old friend. She had been stranded with car troubles earlier and I wanted to make sure she'd made it home. She recently left the church we'd previously attended together and I got a chance to ask her about her decision. She tells me that the pastor lied to her and several others in the congregation about different things and several people have left the church as a result. This is my dilemma: I like this pastor's preaching and have attended worship under him several times on Sunday nights, but I don't know if I can sit under this man if he's being dishonest to his congregation. The question is do I ask him about it? A part of me feels like he deserves to tell his side of the story, but asking him means we're engaging in gossip and that doesn't seem right either. I'm not transferring my membership, but maybe I should keep the kids out of the picture until I know the truth. Really wondering what others would do because at this point I don't know what's right.

I weighed in this a.m. and I'm up about 1 lb. This isn't too big a deal and it's really not a surprise; with the craziness of the long weekend -- the bridal shower, the wedding, the kids home for an extra day with the school holiday-- I didn't do well watching my diet, and I didn't exercise at all.
Today we had a 2 hr delay so I used the extra time to get back on my program. I did 20 minutes on the treadmill, had a healthy breakfast, and logged in to Sparkpeople before the boys left on the bus.
Now hubby is home and wants to go out to eat, but I can't see having lunch this early so hope to hold him off for an hour or two. Really thinking a nap would be nice, but we'll have to see.

The shower went pretty well. Steff was very excited about her KitchenAide mixer. She got some really nice gifts and I'm very glad so many family and friends cared enough to come and support her. I know I didn't eat well today; the cake was an unusual treat and I know I ate too much cheese. I actually let myself have a soda and I haven't had near enough water today. There's not much chance I'll get a workout in because I'm really tired tonight and just feel like turning in. The best I can hope for is a chapter of Bible reading then off to sleep. The morning will be here early and I still have much to do.
