Monday…Just Me & Us
It’s Monday. I still have a cold. Symptoms are better, but I just feel the typical run-down during a cold feeling. Yesterday was good. I got some rest and things didn’t feel too pressed with company coming.
One of my favorite things about company coming is I really enjoy being in my home having it clean for a while even when they are gone! It makes me want to tackle those “extra” things waiting for my attention I can never get to when there is straightening and generalized cleaning to do! Of course, it also makes me want to rest and enjoy the results while things go back downhill and not accomplish any of the “extras”! We’ll see!
Paperwork: Fill out paperwork for camp for the kids, drop by church
Church: Catalog library books (get general index of books by photo while at church)
Laundry: whites, etc.
Meal: BBQ from pork loin left over from gathering last night
Quiet Time: extra prayer time needed today/ get out meditation cards
Me: finish a few cards I worked on this weekend
This Weekend: MamaMia was the weirdest movie I’ve ever seen. My main thought throughout was not so much “wow” as, “I can’t believe they pulled that off and talked those particular actors into doing that!” Another thought was “Who’s Abba anyway?” The Hub was singing along…I was not.
Soccer: cancelled due to rain (whew…I was not feeling well!)
Also family movie: watched Tuck Everlasting, pretty true to the book and well done. Reservations on the guy-girl aspects visually portrayed for young girls, but I won’t go into detail here on that. The whole, we can swim together and hug and get starry eyed and sing sensually in the dark to the beat of the drums–it’s all just an innocent thing with no particular worries in mind. What are they thinking? NOT THINKING. I do believe in romance and innocent love blooming, but I just think it has it’s limits when you try to present that to young girls. They need to know caution and not think all that is just part of, or IS love. All I’ll say on that for now, you moms know exactly my thoughts. Anyway, interesting thoughts on what it would mean to live forever and the struggles. My kids (10, 7) TOTALLY didn’t get that part. They kept asking why the girl didn’t just go on and drink from the fountain of life.
