Saturday, after I ran my first ever 5K, I ran home, showered and then left on a 1 3/4 hour drive to where I was helping throw a baby shower for my niece Rachael. She's having a baby girl next month and it was an honor to get to bless her with a beautiful shower and so many great gifts! Here is a pic of me measuring her baby-belly!
That was a busy, busy day---and life is not about to get any slower! I have something on the calander almost every day for the next solid month. It's insane. I know I've done it yet again...and over-committed myself. Tomorrow I have to go to the school to prepare flyers for Teacher Appreciation Week which I'm chairperson of. Friday I have to be at the school all day to oversee our Fun Day (kind of like a track meet) where I am the chairperson and will be in charge of making sure every single thing runs smoothly. Sunday is Matt's birthday and I still don't know what the plans are for that yet...but he has requested a 1 hour full body massage from ME as his gift. (I think I can handle that one! :) Right around the corner from that is Mother's Day and Grant's 5th birthday, which I still need to plan. On top of that, I am the PR Coordinator for our church's VBS this year and I need to be making preparations for that. In addition to those things, I have been offered an opportunity to do something very, very exciting related to fitness...that I can't quite disclose entirely yet...but it is going to require me to spend some quality time preparing for and working on.
Add to that that I am 2/3 of the way done reading the book "The Shack"
*Need to plan Date #3 for me and my Brookie-dear.
*Need to put lots of stuff on Craig's list to sell--it's laying in piles everywhere and clutter drives me nuts!
*Still need to take down all the Easter decor and put that in the attic.
*Need to start planning the end-of-the-year gift for Brooklyn's teacher at school since I am the homeroom mom and school is almost out.
*Need to find, print and turn in pictures for the yearbook at school.
*Just bought a book called "Boundaries: When to say Yes and How to say No" that our Sunday School class is studying and I am in dire need of reading and applying to my life. (as you can see from this post!)
Aughhhh.....how am I going to do all that and everything on my calander and still work out and eat right and pay bills and on and on and on????
Who knows...but somehow I always manage to do it. I know one thing....I need to hurry up and read that book!! As you can imagine, I may not be blogging much during this next month...but I promise I'll be back!
