How do you cram 18 women in a kitchen around a kitchen table?! We managed to do it tonight!! It’s a good thing for open concept kitchens, two tables and lots of extra chairs!!

I was feeling a bit off going into tonight’s study time. I didn’t have the greatest night last night or morning, physically which ran into my emotions and played a part in my spirit feeling disconnected. I could tell while I was speaking/teaching tonight.

Instead of pulling the blankets over my head this morning and curling up into the fetal position… I should have jumped into the shower, took control of my body that was trying to revolt and got a grip on my day. I’m so glad to be with a group of women who are strong and can fill in the gaps that I left all over the place. I did not feel like myself at all.

I also need to get a better grip of my schedule… or shall I say — make a schedule! Time is getting away from me too quick. It’s not that I’m sitting watching TV either, I don’t turn the TV on until I am putting Jake to sleep at 9pm. Right now I am really busy in the church office (which is where ever my laptop happens to be), we just had a cafe fund raiser, it’s month end so the monthly bulletin has to be put together (which I have to reconstruct now that I don’t have a workplace to print them off in colour for cheap cheap), we’re hosting an elders Christmas luncheon this Thursday for about 30 or so people, and the list goes on and on and on. With year end coming up… it’s only going to get crazier.

I need to also better schedule my study time, my prayer time and my alone time – none of which is working out how I planned. I know I need to get to bed a ton earlier than I have been, I need to get up a bit earlier than I am and I need to stop and take the time in the day to talk more to my Father. It’s been go go go and I need to stop and listen from time to time. Good thing tomorrow is a new day which means I get a fresh start!!

    Being at home doesn’t necessarily mean you won’t be any less busy, just different busy. Sorry I missed last night, Vince and I celebrated our 8th wedding anniversary.
