Our Week

We are always busy, but for some reason this week felt busier than normal.  I think it’s just that I have too many big projects going on right now. But soon, hopefully, they will end and my stress level will go down – the joys of deadlines!2-24-11 0022-24-11 003

In addition of our normal 12 therapy appointments, Fitness Club, Garden Club, Girl Scout Cookie Booths, picking up and dropping off, extra orchestra practice, piano and viola lessons, there was the natural gas inspection, the Elementary school Open House, and activity days for both Jessi and Lizzy, oh, and the hoe down.  Thank goodness I have a crock pot!  I scheduled a Sonic run this week – so I couldmarch 1 020 go and buy myself a drink, of course I was also running to the bank to pay the Harris County Fire Marshall, but I got my drink!  This week a phrase from Elder Uchtdorf kept running through my head, “It’s easy to be busy.”  I need to schedule some time to contemplate that. 

Linda has been taking the Wilton Cake Decorating Class.  On Monday night she brought over some cupcakes for Family Home Evening – yummy!  Jason adores buttercream frosting!

Working  and working and working on the play set.

Cute Lizzy before Fitness Club – I love the time when we go to drop her off.  It’s just her and I.  I have to turn around and bring Jessi to school in 25 minutes, but she and I get to be alone for a second.

By Thursday I was feeling a little overwhelmed.  My sweet Jason brought me home some beautiful flowers and roses for the garden.  Working in the dirt and seeing those flowers was so restorative to my soul!

Friday night Jason and I had plans for dinner and the temple.  I was so excited – I am in need of that peace and time to learn, reflect, and receive inspiration.  Alas, nursing issues arose.  We got to run grab a bite to eat, but no temple.  And the temple is now closed till March 15th.  Just have to make my half hour morning study time more meaningful, I guess.

Saturday brought us the Stake Young Women Hike – four miles.  I loved it!!feb 27 036feb 27 040feb 27 041feb 27 042

and Sammi found a four leaf clover! – blurry picture – but truly a 4 leaf clover!  That evening Nathan and Mandy had piano recitals.  They did a really good job – and then we went out to eat.  I enjoyed that!
