Busy Day in Dollville
We are having a busy week this
week as used to be normal to us.
Sometimes events all fall into
the same week of the month.
Such is the case this week.
Saturday morning was a homeschool
Sunday was special
in that we installed our Elders and
Associate Pastor at church, had communion
and a fellowship meal and then had a
Congregational Meeting after which we
sat and chatted until 6pm.
Brought some friends home with us and
later went over to the Rabe's so Warren
could get their wireless working with
Deanna's new laptop.
Last night was another Homeschool meeting...
tis the season, I guess and then tomorrow
night is book club. There is a church
event on Friday evening. So...that leaves
tonight and Thursday without formal plans.
However, today is bowling and Thursday is
Homeschool Co-op...the last one for this
school year. I am making special plans
toward this for my classes.
There are obviously school days to complete
and candle orders to fill. One son to take
to work and another to Physical Therapy.
A meal to make for a very dear friend.
Sooo happy to do this. I even hope to
take them some of my newly conquered
French Sweet Bread to go with the lasagna
For this week these are our chosen
activities...next week will be back
to the sanity.
I cannot believe we used to live like
this all of the time.
What were we thinking???

to save your sanity?
We have found our
communication with teenagers is much
better when we are not gone most evenings
of the week. They seem to appreciate the
So...once we are through this craziness...
back to the quiet life we have come to
Mrs. Rabe and I were talking about this
on Saturday as we went to an event together.
It is so easy to continue to pile on
responsibility of things that are good.
However, just because it is a good thing
doesn't mean that it is something that
should obligate us to it or take us away
from our families in the tender years.
It is so easy to see a once a month commitment
as no big deal and then end up with five
separate monthly commitments. Sigh...how
well I know this one.
So...anyway...this week is my object lesson
in keeping my commitments under control and
not returning to that craziness we once called
That is the encouragement to be found here.
It is possible to let things go.
If we can do it...you can do it.
That is for sure.
Then, when you have the occasional week like
this, you can smile and say to yourself...
"Next week...back to the calm life."
Have a wonderful day and a peaceful week.
