As far as I can tell, days have not gotten longer and yet, we seem to cram more and more in each day! This weekend was filled with so much stuff. Good stuff mind you but a lot of it.
With that, I am dragging. And for a ninja, that is not safe at all.
Friday night I spent working on the slide show presentation for our Sunday church service. I typically do this on Sunday mornings during the first (traditional) service for the second (contemporary) service but I knew I was not gong to have time come Sunday. You will understand why. After that was done I needed to get all the stuff I needed for my meeting on Saturday. And let's not forget the Vlog recording and uploading also.
Saturday morning I was up and out of the house at 6:15 and on my way to Palmdale which is an hour and a half away for my Via De Cristo team meeting. VDC is a spiritual weekend that I am involved in. You may have heard of Cursillo which VDC is an expression of.
Anyhow, while I was there until 4:30, my son was running in his first invitational cross country meet. He came in 71st with about 600 boys running in this race. He got a medal (all those finishing 90th and better did) and said that he could have had a better time without all the traffic. Oh, he is gonna love commuting one day.
My daughter’s soccer coach told the team to get the park at 2pm for the 2:30 game except that their game was at 8:30 in the morning! That annoyed not only my daughter but the team and all the parents too!
After all this stuff we were at a 50th Birthday fiesta for my mother in law and my cousin in law (if that is a real thing.) It was fun except that I was exhausted. I wish I could have had a little more energy but I ended up leaving at 10 and fell asleep as soon as my head hit the pillow (I did wake up at 3am and tossed and turned until morning but I am becoming used to that).
On Sunday I sang with 3 other friends a song at the early service which is why I had to do it on Friday. After that service and the contemporary one where I lead the band, we went over to my cousins to spend some more time with the in laws and other family that came in from out of town for the party. It was good seeing them all.
And then Gillian and I went out to my sisters house in Upland (about an hour away) to feed her kitties and make sure they were okay. Her soon to be sister in law is checking on them also but I told her I could check on them on Sunday. That was before I thought about the whole family event. When I got home at 7 on Sunday from all this stuff I thought I was going to cry. I was so tired. I watched a few episodes of the X-Files season 3 and went to bed.
I feel like I am constantly on fumes.
