Just catchin' up

Today was a really busy day. After getting my boys to school, I went directly to a meeting to discuss my Women's Bible Study class for tomorrow with one of the women co-teaching with me. Our third wheel is out of town so it will just be Martha and me tomorrow. We are starting a project meditating on the story of the woman touching the hem of Jesus' robe and being healed. We'll be doing an imagination exercise tomorrow and then continue with this same passage for several weeks with different exercises. We'll be doing some writing and then starting an art project that will run for several weeks. After meeting with Martha, I spent about 2 hours setting up my room for class tomorrow. It takes longer this year setting up the basics for what we need because my class size almost doubled! After setting up, I came home and spent about another hour and a half typing out hand outs and stuff for class tomorrow. Then, before I knew it, it was time to pick up Max.

In the midst of my morning, I forgot to go to the grocery store for lunch stuff for my boys. I told them to pick up their lunch boxes in the school office but guess what? I TOTALLY forgot and almost had a heart attack when I realized it. By then, it was too late. However, there is the school lunch food... and there were 4 options to choose from today. But, do you think my boys did that? NOoooooo... they both chose to go hungry! Figure that out! Little stinkers! Needless to say, they were starving when they got home.

After getting the boys fed and started on homework, it was quickly time to go to swim practice. Chuck couldn't take them today so I had to go, meaning, I wasn't making dinner. Not that I mind that part, since I don't like cooking... but, oh well. I spent swim time journaling things swimming through my head.

We got Wendy's on the way home and then the boys finished homework, got bathed, and had just enough time to watch a movie we had rented. While they did that, I worked on another watercolor ATC. I borrowed a green pumpkin from Martha today. I think that's what it is anyway. Some kind of squash. It's still in progress due to the constant interruption I got trying to paint it! I'll do my pen/ink work on it and it will be finished. Here it is now almost 8:30 and I'm just eating my Wendy's salad.

Tomorrow night is the first official meeting of a new art group here for the west valley. My friend, Marilyn and I have been talking about starting a group for a couple of years now. Well, she took the bull by the horns and now it looks like we have quite a group planning to attend tomorrow evening. I'm looking forward to it. Although, Fran reminded me that the debate is on t.v. tomorrow night and I hate to miss that because I really need to see it! I don't know if Fran is planning to attend with me or not because of the debate. She's way more political than I am. It's funny, our friendship contains some of those elements you hear that you should never discuss.... religion and politics. Fran and I are opposites on both with me being a born-again Christian and she being Jewish. And then she's really liberal when it comes to politics and I'm really conservative. Yet we can discuss our thoughts and opinions without arguing and fighting and agree to disagree. It's really a gift, I think. And she makes me look at things in a new way, no matter what it is. We haven't had as much time together lately as we have in the past and as much as I would like. I've missed her. Fran, I have missed you! I'm sorry I didn't get over to cut your hair today! ;(

I'll go and see if I can get my painting finished so I'll have something to post.

I miss you, too. I'll be home all week. I don't think I'll be at the meeting tonight because of tomorrow morning's treatment. Last month's started to wear off and a ride to Glendale and being out until after 9 won't be good for me. I'll miss you!
