Its Monday & I'm exhausted... no, really... exhausted.
I'm sitting at my desk at 6:30 am barely able to hold my head up... thinking about sleep, which is doing nothing but making me more tired.
My weekend was so amazingly hectic... here's just a small look at how it went
* Friday evening was our Christmas Program at church. I got to sing with our Christmas Ensemble... love doing that every year. Its odd though because I have a deeper voice so I sing tenor... but we're short in the tenor department anyways so it works out. I love when a program all comes together. We practice for months ahead of time so when it's the actual performance night, there's an energy in the air.
*Our church also put on a Christmas drama... fantastic! Great to see so many people get to use their talents while giving a great message... so many ways to "preach" the message of Jesus.
*We were out shopping early on Saturday.... trying to knock off the list... & was doing pretty decent until...
*Got a phone call my dad was in a car accident... he was in the ER so Ricky & I took off to see what was going on. He's OK... just a tad banged up.... I drove him home when he was released & Ricky went to go see his brother whose also in the hospital. Also just thankful that dad was just "banged up" when I heard a 17 yr old boy in our area of town was also in a car accident that same day & didnt survive... life can change at the blink of an eye.
*I had to be back at church at 6:00 pm for our Junior High Christmas party... I am so thankful for my friends... I was running late since we were coming from Louisville & had to go through the bridge chaos... so I didnt have time to stop at home & put on a Christmas costume or even bring a white elephant gift... I walk in & my friends had me something to put on & an extra gift for me to use.... friends make things better, dont they?
*Sunday was Jr High service & it was an amazing time to hear their view on "Peace" in the world... & in their lives... they said things that literally left me speechless... such amazing minds.
*Off to try & pick up a few more gifts... sshhh... I found Ricky's gift while he was out with his friend
*Had to go to the funeral home... my uncle passed away on Friday. I got to see so many of my family members I havent seen in YEARS which is always nice, but just wish it was under different conditions. I told everyone we used to see everyone at weddings, then baby showers & now, I hope its not only funerals we see each other.
*Back to my neck of the woods for our Senior High Christmas Party... It was a party kinda weekend
*I ended up getting home last night around 9:30 & now, my house is a disaster area... bags thrown all over the kitchen... I have no idea what is where, or where is what... I didnt even care. I put on my PJ's, got a book & read for 30 minutes before I crashed with my book in my hands...
....I'm looking forward to Christmas to just sleep in....
Hope you all had a great weekend
(FYI - I do have pictures of my Christmas tree... & the youth party... & some other things... I just had ZERO time to get on the computer this weekend... but pictures are coming...)
