What did my day look like today? Plan, plan, plan! But it was all good and enjoyable planning. The bulk of my day was having lunch at my friend’s house while we planned one of our best gals’ baby shower. Our Sunday school class is a baby making MACHINE! Let’s see. 6 women, 5 tots under 2, and 2 more on the way. Yea. We are popping them out like a log flume ride. Although it’s insanely awesome that we get to go through it all pretty much together and have our kids grow up together. Here is a picture of all of us at my own baby shower.
I have to say that I am so so so excited to be helping to plan this shower. My good friend Angie (on the far right) and her husband waited a long time (2.5 years) for this to come. With patience and faith, God blessed them naturally with the little girl they are awaiting. It’s so amazing and it brings me pure joy to help celebrate this special time in her life.
Other planning that occurred was preparation for this Sunday’s lesson and discussion for our Goodlife class. This planning is fruitful because it serves as a way for me to learn more and grow my own faith. I will be sharing about this in my Goodlife Sunday post this weekend, of course. 🙂
The final part of my plan plan plan day was preparing some practice lessons for the kid I tutor. Before my stay at home mommy days I was a Spanish teacher and tutor now on the side for some easy extra dough. Luckily, I didn’t spend TOO much time working on today’s practice cards and drills because I got a call about 5 minutes before the student was due to arrive saying he wasn’t going to make it. At first I was annoyed, but then I looked at it as an opportunity to play with my family.
We rolled the ball and scattered flashcards,
hung upside down,
and laughed. A lot.
Now, that M is exhausted she is off to bed. And now that I am done planning, time to relax with some blogs and my book. As much as I love my Monday night Bachelor and Tuesday night The Biggest Loser and all the drama they bring, I do enjoy having a non TV night. I hope each of you have just as relaxing a night!
- Do you have any nights that you don’t have anything to do or watch? How do you occupy your time?
- Do you like planning and organizing things? Or does it stress you out?
- Do you know any foreign languages? Spanish is all I got, but I would love love love to know French or Italian.
