I made it through this week and I made it through NaBloPoMo! Yay for me! A post every day is definitely an accomplishment for me. I’m glad I did it!

I will be really glad when this week is really finished. A funeral and a wedding in one week makes for quite the emotional roller coaster, let me tell you! But, I made it through the funeral/memorial service, I got my first Avon order in today, I finished at work early so that I could get a much needed nap and I’m nearly done with tonight’s wedding prep. Yippee! I will be so glad for Sunday’s afternoon nap. 😀

Congrats to everyone else who made it through NaBloPoMo, too! Happy end of November!


Now for a vacation!

I feel empty right now. I think I am just overwhelmed at tasks that need doing this week. I have a wedding to plan, a funeral to attend (which will take all of one day with travel), a house that is a disaster right and needs some serious attention, a husband that needs to plan ahead for his homework and apparently needs my prodding to do so… I’m just stressed out! I thought the funeral was Tuesday and I just found out that it is Thursday. That is a good thing, but for some reason it set me crying while on the phone with my mom. But, right now, I just give everything to God.

God, I need your help! I can’t do all this on my own. I’m a mess! I give you all of my worries and sadness. I give you my feelings of inadequacy and failure. Please take my life and work it out how it should be worked out. Thank you for loving me and caring about me always. I love you. Amen.

This Saturday one of the men  in our congregation is getting married. Early last week, Monday or Tuesday, he showed up at our front door saying he wanted to get married the day after Thanksgiving. Hubby didn’t think he could get a marriage license that fast and he was right. So it’s this coming weekend. They are both so excited to get married. It’s a surprise to everyone, but they are all happy for him.

I am the official wedding decorator. I am having fun getting everything ready. The colors are beige and lavender. My brother and sister-in-law used lavender, too, so I still have things I can use from their wedding. I made topiaries for their wedding and I plan on reusing those. This is a nice diversion from the usual things I do for the church. Something a little more fun! Weddings are such happy days!

We have also volunteered our kids to be flower girl and ring bearer. I will also take pictures for them. I’m looking forward to it even though it will be a lot of extra work. Like I said, it’s fun work!

These are the two wonderful little monsters that I have created. I love them, but they sure know how to get into trouble. This picture was taken just after Princess decided to leap from my husband’s arms. She face-planted the grass and scraped her chin and nose. The flowers she is holding were given to her by one of the bridesmaids (we were at my brother’s wedding) to keep her happy while we got a family picture. Little Man will be one on September 25th. He gets into EVERYTHING! Even as I am writing this he has dumped my trash can, tried to eat a bouncy ball and tried to drink from my can of pop. I sure do love them, though.
