Taking a deep breath...

The corporate visit we've been preparing for at work - supposed to be today. We've been working like crazy, getting everything ready, and found out at about noon Monday that nobody is coming. I guess the good news is that the store looks great. We were so ready! Feels like a big let down - I'm guessing thats why I can't sleep.
I am so much more ready for co-op this week than I was last week. I planned, shopped, planned some more - I was so ready for Green Eggs and Ham! But.....I got on the road to co-op and realized two things - I'd left home without ham. Not such a big deal - theres a grocery store between home and co-op, easy fix. We drive a little further and I realize - I've left the book at home! A little difficult to do an hour long class on Green Eggs and Ham without the book - leave it to me. I had to send Erich home for the book, and to stop at the grocery store for the ham. After he left, I realize something else. I have the eggs, the bowl, the whisk, the green food coloring....I forgot the electric skillet. Good thing he was already on the road - I couldn't see the look on his face, or all the lovely mumbling I'm sure he was doing as he went home to get all I'd forgotten and came running back to co-op - to my rescue. I'm sending up a prayer - again!!! - that this week I do better. On the bright side, I don't think I could do worse! All in all, I think the class went well. Everything came together, thanks to my many assistants. We laughed because the younger the kids are, the more of us it takes to make the class happen.
I need to catch up on this weeks bible study lessons. I am enjoying this study, its different than any other I've done. I wish I were doing better keeping up. Maybe I'll do better this week. Again, I don't think I could do much worse!
Well, now that I've gotten some of these thoughts down and out of my head, I'm going to give sleep another try.

Way behind!

Ever feel like you're running way behind - on everything - but can't seem to figure out how to fix it? We have a floor set this week at work, and there is a corporate visit next week. This has made scheduling really weird, and everything is really hectic. It seems that we can't do much right now to prepare for our visit, because most of it will have to be redone before then.
Not to mention this is the 3rd week for our bible study, and the first week of coop classes. I really look forward to both, and so do the kids. I feel like I haven't given either the attention I want to, but it will all pull together - it always does!
More prep for Kids Church. Enjoying it, but I am finding myself making an extra trip to the church during the week. Its much nicer to be prepared for the service on Sunday ahead of time. It seems that I always find myself distracted on Sunday mornings and I feel better if everything is done before then. Again, I'm sure everything will pull together.
Having alot of fun with the kids and school, too. I am always amazed at how much I learn along with them. So many things I don't think I ever knew, or maybe I just can't remember!
Well, trying to get to bed early tonight, hoping for a full nights sleep. When I got home from work, the kids were already in bed - some nights when I get home they're not! I was thrilled, to say the least.

What a week!

I was thrilled to finish work today! I'm not sure why, I felt like it was the end of the week or something, but I have to work tomorrow. Bummer! Anyway, this week is finished - that's about all I can say about it.
We are scheduled for a corporate visit in a couple of weeks - our district manager, a regional manger, and one of our company vice presidents. Talk about stressful! Not looking forward to it.
I'm hoping I am prepared for Kids Church in the morning. Last week proved to be a little more hectic than usual. We are adding our first grade kiddos tomorrow, and going back to the full fall schedule - Erich and I started during summer so I'm not entirely sure what "fall schedule" means. Should be interesting!
