I Survived another busy weekend!

I have been so very busy with stuff! I blogged about what I had to do last weekend; I survived my weekend pretty well.

The wedding shower Friday evening went well. The person that is getting married I discipled for about a year. She has asked me to sing in her wedding and of course I am more than happy to do just that. This couple that is getting married to me is the very imagine of the "perfect young couple" They love the Lord and each other very much. I can't wait to see what the Lord has in store for them.

AJ's Senior pictures take went great! It rained all morning here in Michigan so I thought for sure he would have to have all indoor pictures taken. He didn't care if he got his picture taken at all. I think it was more for me than for him. She took about 20 different poses; I had to make AJ laugh. He is not use to getting so much attention; such a failure on my part. He is so laid back and easy going that he had been sort of put on the back burner all these years. He never demands attention like some of my other children do. I am glad I have notice this mistake and still have time to do something about it before he leaves for the Navy. He now takes advantage of any Mom time he can get. The afternoon turned out so beautiful here so we were able to get in some out door pictures as well. I'll post them in a few weeks.

Sunday was a little crazy; I got my Ann Arbor news papers late, due to the World Series game. I delivered most of my advances before I got the main paper so it wasn't so bad. Just a very long evening! I got home at 9:15 a.m. and had to leave my house at 9:40 a.m. to get to church in time to lead worship. I am glad I prepared my heart the night before. I ran into church and up on stage just in time to sing the opening song. The sermon was good! I am grateful for that because after an all righter at work if the sermon is dry I fall asleep.

The baby shower Sunday afternoon was nice. All of my family was their; plus a lot of Terra's family came. We played games; I stink at them. Terra got a lot of nice things. I gave her Diapers and $100.00 her husband is the one in Jail for drinking and driving.
I try to help her out financial when I can.

I took AJ to U of M stadium for his wrestling practice with the U of M wrestlers. I usually just stay and watch because AJ doesn't like for me to leave. I sat and talked to one of the dad's for a little while. I Then could feel sleep trying to take over my body. I tried with all of my might to fight it off. It was warm in the room and I hadn’t sleeed since 2:30 a.m. Saturday morning. I don't know if I was snoring our drooling or what but the guy that I was sitting next to hit me in the leg and asked me if I wanted to go out into the hall so he could buy me a pop. At that point I couldn't even think of where in the world I was. I declined telling him I could buy my own pop. I followed him out into the hallway and thanked him for waking me up. Before I knew it the night was over. I looked at the dad and said "WOW! This night went by so fast". He looked at me with a very funny look on his face and said, "You slept for an hour of it". I had no idea I slept that long. If I am that tired again I think I will just sit out in my truck instead of going in and trying to stay awake.

This week is going o.k. yesterday was a down day. I didn't do anything except clean my house. I even took a nap after I got the kids off to school.

Today, I had a hair cut appointment at 9:00 a.m. I had to go clean up leaves at my house cleaning job before my boss gets back tomorrow from his trip. I am now just relaxing a bit before going to work. I have to practice tonight with a fellow I am singing a few duets with when I get home from work.

After next week things really should slow down a bit for me.

Lori, my goodness but you had me just busting out laughing! Have you ever fallen asleep in public before? lol Both of our boys were co-captains of the westling team at school and it really was tough for me to get into it! The scissor cut and all, whew! You need to pace yourself!

Love that your are singing at the wedding, you must be really good!

Ky Boo Gal,

Yes, I do look like my mom. My picture is on this blog serveral times. I think it in some Sept. post and October post.


I am sure I am doing something wrong with the pictures. Things should slow down soon for me.

Mrs Blythe,
Rest should come soon!


I have never fallen asleep at wrestling before. I have fallen asleep in church before when I have had a long route and the sermon is a little dry.

Big Mama,

You are welcome! Thank you for the comment about Boaz. I think he is pretty darn adorable as well.


My nephew gets out of jail December 19th, 2006. She asked me if I would drive her to pick him up. It will be good to see my nephew again.


Next week should be a lot better! I just have to get through this weekend.

J. Andrew Lockhart,

Rest will hopefully come soon. If I like it or not.
