|The Girl Who Ate Everything|
At 11:30am, I drove Flowering Buttercup and Spell Girl to the church for BYC (in my sweats and with my hair in curlers...because I still had a whole HOUR and 15 minutes before I had to be ready.) At 12:40pm, I was totally ready when the Scout Master decided we should leave. I had a perfectly curled-on-purpose ponytail, matching jewelry, and none of my make up had to be put on in the van! That never happens with the 9:00 church schedule.
At 12:50pm, we were sitting in our regular bench and everyone had everything they needed. Flowering Buttercup was on the stand ready to give her talk (which was awesome btw) and the rest of us were happy to be at church. The girls and I sang In the Hollow of Thy Hand with my friend, Jeanette and her daughter, for the missionary who is about to leave for Denver. And it wasn't painfully high because it was 1:30pm and not 9:30am. (It still sounded a little breathy to me, but I think it was the song...that thing has been around since the 70s, hasn't it? I think it's time to write another missionary farewell song...one that you can sing for a boy or a girl!)
By 4:30pm (after our cleaning assignments in the building) we were at home, back in sweats and I was starting dinner. We ate at 5:30pm (our newly scheduled dinner time.) And after dinner, the Scout Master gave the kids father's blessings since school starts tomorrow. At 6:45pm, Flowering Buttercup and I drove to the Seminary Kick-off and met her new/old seminary teacher (he's the same one she had last year...I hope he doesn't mind two years in a row of her 6:00am enthusiasm.) We got back home at 8:30pm and I finished some last minute details for breakfast and lunches tomorrow, and the kids were all in bed by 9:00pm.
|ok...maybe it was 9:30...|
It sounds like it was a crazy Sunday, but it wasn't. It was relaxing and enjoyable and I loved every minute of it. I did everything I wanted to do and still managed to read a few chapters of my book, get some spiritual nourishment, and stick to my plan...all with a perfect ponytail! The only thing I haven't managed to do today is get to bed at a decent hour...maybe tomorrow...
