Week ending 3/16/13

Saturday, March 16, 2013

It's been a hectic (for me) couple of weeks, and I feel worn out. Without going into a day-by-day, blow-by-blow account, I will say this: I had multiple dr appts, a hair appt, 2 days at school, four days at the animal shelter (now that's WORK), and I'm probably forgetting something. I'm used to sleeping in most days until around 7:30 (see what being retired can bring?), but for the past 5 days, I've been up either shortly after 6 or around 6:30.

Last night DH and I went to church and helped get things ready for the men's (quarterly) breakfast this morning. This morning, we were at church before 7:30 and finally got to sit down and eat our own breakfast around 9:30. DH had set up and manned an omelet station, someone else made hash browns from scratch, and still others had made various breakfast casseroles. There was a huge bowl of cut-up fresh fruit, and various danish pastries. Add in pots of coffee and we were set.

Approximately 52 men (and a few boys) were expected, and extras showed up - normal procedure. Many are not members of our church, which was very nice. I assisted my DH by beating the eggs in single-serving sized bowls. He had fried onions, chopped ham and bacon, along with 3 different cheeses to choose from. All told, we did 18 omelets, but it seemed like more. emoticon

We came home and I grabbed some shut-eye then off we went to watch our 9 yr old grandson play in their last-of-the-season basketball game. As soon as we walked back into the house, I started dinner, did dishes, then we watched a Netflix movie. Now it's just after 9:30 and I think I'm going to bed very soon. emoticon

I wouldn't 'take back' anything I accomplished this week, but I'm real glad we'll just go to school one day and to the shelter to work two days.

    You definitely were busy. Thank you again for caring for the pet babies and for helping with the breakfast. I'm sure your help at both was greatly appreciated. -- Lou

    Wow, I didn't realize you had all that going on, ending with working a big church event. It's sounds wonderful, but there's no doubt they take a lot of energy, plus all the other busy-ness of the week. Enjoy your lower-key week coming up with the things you know you'll enjoy! emoticon

    Helping others is good in moderation hehe...

if more of us did the world would be a even better place.

Sounds like you had a good busy week.

This week should be a bit easier (I hope)

    Get rested! Sounds like you are doing some really great things for your extended family, school, animal shelter, and church. Good for you. Now, don't overdo. Maybe you could get to bed earlier when you have to get up earlier? Might be worth a try. I find it very difficult to function well when tired. Sleep is important. Take care!
