Having a quiet cleanup day here. Laundry is in the washer, agitating away. Am trying to motivate myselft to keep picking up, straightening up, putting away. Gotta go to the grocery store this p.m.
Nice day yesterday. At church with oldest son @0745, as he had a part in the 8:30 service. Dh and I helped w/music at the usual classes (adult, junior and primary 2), then attended second service. Towards the end of the service we were all herded into the almost-completed newly-renovated sanctuary, to sit in the new pews and take a gander at what's been done (as the music concluded w/women's chorus and a solo). It was nice.
Then we drove to Oceanside to visit w/MIL, and had our Christmas dinner @ IHOP!! It was good! And no dishes to wash!!
Opened a few presents at MIL's, the kids played their new GameBoy games (after Sabbath
), so they were REALLY quiet and well-behaved (wink, wink). Drove home around 2100. It was a nice day.
Back to reality. To everything there is a season, and now it's time for laundry, grocery shopping and getting ready for the work week.
Hope you all had a nice day, and be good to yourselves today, to prevent post-holiday letdown.
Thinking of Leslie, and others who have recently lost loved ones this time of year. Also prayers going out for survivors and families of victims of the devastating earthquake (and aftershocks) and tsunamis in Indonesia, Thailand, India, Malaysia, etc. Terrible, terrible. My heart goes out to them.
