I am resolved to have a productive day. Just a few more loads of laundry, girls are working on school. I have two suppers to make tonight, one for us, one for a couple from church with a new baby. This is so hard to do, but having received meals with births/illnesses and also at times not received them-I'll go out of my way to bless someone with them. It is a very effective ministry tool. I just hate figuring out what to take. It is OK to mess up our family meal, not so good to mess up another family's. Pampered Chef lady TRUE CONFESSION: I don't cook well under pressure. I tend to burn or oversalt or anything else that can ruin an otherwise easy meal. Where is this pressure coming from?? Inside my own head. I have expectations that could trip up even "super self-esteem man" Rush Limbaugh.
So now I am going to carefully plan two meals, make out a final(hopefully) cookie delivery list, finish getting dressed, fold two more loads of clothes and then run morning errands before music. Come home after music, cook, and then deliver a meal before a long night of ball practice(last one though-happy dance, happy dance!).
Today I am thankful for: My darling hubby who has been pitching in like crazy to help out. He cleaned almost the whole house on Sunday and it still looks semi-decent. He cooked supper last night and then did the dishes. I give him full credit that my sanity is still intact. Today I thanked him by making his lunch and starting his car to defrost the windshield. Vacation is just around the bend and we desperately need it.
