Morning Meanderings… Sunday Salon


Good morning!  Happy Sunday!  This has been an extreme week and I am so thrilled to be able to see the finish line to the over committing for a little while at least 😀

Last Sunday after a busy afternoon I played Floor Hockey.

Monday I worked, came home-made a desert and then went to our Monday evening small group study.  We are starting a book called Ten Dumb Things Smart Christians Believe by Larry Osborne.  I cam e home at 8:30 pm.

Tuesday I worked all day, ran to pick up a few things at the grocery store, came home with dinner for Al, and cooked my pasta for book club – then went to book club.  We had an awesome time and I came home at 9:30 pm.

Wednesday – worked all day (seeing a pattern here?) Rushed home to change and went back to help with the students activities like I do every Wednesday evening.  Home at 8 pm.

Thursday – worked all day, prepped for an event in Aitkin (40 miles from where I live), picked up a pizza for Al, changed, drove to Aitkin by 5 pm and helped with event… home at 8:45 pm

Friday – worked until noon… met my husband for a quick-lunch so I could see what he looks like (seems like these days I only see him when he is sleeping… :razz:.  Went and got a hair cut, ran home to pack, met 8 friends at Applebees at 4:30 pm, had dinner then drove an hour to Crosslake Minnesota for the women’s retreat at Trout Lake Camp. As soon as we were there we had a two-hour session, bed around midnight.

Saturday sessions and a chance to catch up with ladies I never seem to have enough time to talk to, which was nice… really nice.  Busy all day – short break in the afternoon, then in the evening a Purse auction, which was fun.

Which brings me to today.  😀  I have a dull headache from lack of sleep and am assured that a nap is in my near future.  Tonight I have floor hockey again, work and group meeting tomorrow evening and then a quieter week…  I think… nothing Tuesday, (YAY!!!), Wednesday students but I am going to request a pass this week, Thursday dinner with friends and then the blissful weekend of no commitment!  😀  That is my goal!

Now… I just want to relax and read…. that’s it.

How is your week ending?  Hopefully it was a wonderful one!  😀

  1. What an exhausting week! You should have met me at Mimi’s for lunch and chitchat…lol

    Thanks for visiting my Sunday Salon post….I like how you’ve combined your Morning Meanderings & Sunday Salon.

    Enjoy the new week….

  2. I agree with Kathy! I am exhausted after reading about your busy week. I can’t remember the last time I had a week so non-stop. Hope the rest of your Sunday is fabulous!

  3. Oh my goodness! I don’t know how you keep up at all! I sure hope this next week is a bit quieter for you.

    • I dont always keep up with is Dalene… thus this vegitated version of me today that has snoozed in a recliner, read a bit… but not much else 😀

  4. I remember the last time I went to a ladies’ retreat, and I think I got about two hours of sleep each night. Ironically I was in the quiet cabin – people who intended to sleep instead of staying up all night talking. It was many older ladies, most of whom snored with the volume of a buzz-saw and then woke up at 5am ready to take on the day. Next time I think I’ll choose the “noisy” cabin. 🙂

    I stayed home most of the week with a sick kid, so it’s just another day at home making sure he’s ready for school tomorrow.

    • Yes sleep was something I lacked going into the retreat… and lacked even more coming out of the retreat. I had a headache all this morning from my over-tiredness…. 😀

  5. Isn’t it crazy how when it rains it just pours in terms of busy-ness? I swear some weeks it feels like I’m doing nothing after work, but then I make up for it by doing a superhuman amount of stuff other weeks. A couple weeks ago I was starting to feel like a hobo because I felt like I was never home and always had a change or two of clothes ready for the next day. I’d come home for an hour before bed and get ready to go back to work again! Thankfully, those weeks were followed up with some much more relaxed weeks. Hope this week is a bit more restful for you!

    • Exactly Megan… feast or famine right?

      Its sad when I leave the house and I have to plan for gym clothes, and evening clothes to wherever I am going…
