The work week is done,

and now we get to the work weekend 😦

Why is it that the busier you are, the busier you get?  Tonight it was a birthday party for one of Ditty’s friends and the wake of  a very nice gentleman from our parish who died suddenly while hunting up north.  It wasn’t the usual hunting accident, probably a heart attack or stroke.

We’ve got the Marathon tomorrow morning and a birthday party tomorrow afternoon.  Still don’t have the card or the gift.  Since someone’s turning 50, the gift should probably be something to dull the aches and pains that come with age, hehe.  Yeah, I know I’m not that far behind, but at least I’m still behind.

Sunday we have the decommissioning ceremony for three Girl Scout camps, one of which my oldest and I had attended for several years.  That too will be difficult.  The camp is one of my favorites, the buildings are set up in a way that allows for togetherness and also for the peace and quiet of solitude.  We have many happy memories there.  It’s a bummer that finances seem to rule all of the decisions being made at the council level lately.  They’ve even changed the cookie program this year.

Monday, I may actually be able to breathe.  Which is good because doing that many trips up and down the stairs with the laundry requires oxygen.  I wouldn’t mind renting a sherpa either.  It would be nice not to have to carry the laundry baskets myself.  Oh well, a girl can dream.

Hope your weekend is peaceful.

"If you are what you should be you will set the whole world on fire."
St. Catherine of Sienna

I finally understand

"Among those around you, apostolic soul, you are the stone fallen into the lake. With your word and your example, you produce a first circle, and it another, and another, and another, wider each time. Now do you understand the greatness of your mission?" St. Josemarie Escriva: The Way
