I promised!

I promised I'd post three times this week and I've only done it once!!  So I'll post one more time tonight and hope I can get to tomorrow.

We've been having a bit of a "thing" going on around here.  If you guys could pray for us, that would be wonderful.

Today I had to go to church to do my regular work for Sunday morning but also work on stuff for Sunday night.  Sunday night will be our annual dinner/budget vote and it's so much fun.  A potluck dinner for 650 people will always be interesting and with this creative crew at church makes it even moreso!  We'll have games, have a slideshow of a summary of the year's ministries, meet the new deacons, vote on the budget and eat lots of food!  :D  But since I do all the graphics, I had to put all that together today.  I was planning on going up on Wednesday but because of the thing going on at church, I just couldn't face anyone at that point.  So 8 hours put in today and I'm sure at least another 2 tomorrow should get us to the point of being done.

One thing that I'm looking forward to is the worship time!  Hubby will be leading his old worship team and it should be some great music and a great time to be back with our WHOLE church family to worship our Savior.  :)

OH!!  Then Sunday, we have a guest speaker/preacher coming to our church campus!  Tim Smith is a parent coach and he's got some great stuff on parenting.  He was a pastor but left that ministry to further the ministry to families in crisis and he's since written numerous books and has been on national TV.  Hubby will pick him up from the airport tomorrow night, go to dinner with him and then they'll be coming back here.  Tim will stay with us.  Then we'll be off to church in the morning so his stay will be short but hopefully we'll have a great visit since Tim is a good friend of our church's.   He actually did the very first "event" at the new church campus so it will be exciting to have him back again now with the 6 month old church!!

So that's what's going on around here.  Lots of "stuff".  Some good, some not so good.  But I have to say that God has placed some very dear people in our path and in our lives and I love them dearly.  :)  What a blessing it is to have godly friends!

I really need to get on the ball!! Sorry!

Once again, I'm slacking off.  I am determined to post 3 times this week and 2 times on the cooking blog even if it kills me!  Well, it won't kill me but you know what I mean!!

For now, I'll post my menu for the week.  We've got a little craziness this week and a bit more next week so the menu reflects that.  :)

Monday (taking care of horses by 4:30 and annual budget meeting at church at 7) - Roast beef, baked potatoes, gravy, green beans
Tuesday (worship leader's meeting at church at 7) - Penne a la vodka, salad
Wednesday (ballet at 4, church at 7) - "Good Salad" (a salad made with greens, chicken, blue cheese, mandarin oranges, glazed walnuts, craisins and a dressing of 1 part honey to two parts balsamic vinegar), bread
Thursday (taking care of horses and riding so home by 5:30) - Pineapple pork chops, rice, peas
Friday (work) - hubby and I go out for dinner and kids are "fend for yourself"
Saturday (picking up guest speaker at 7 from airport) - most likely going out to eat with the man who's guest preaching on Sunday
Sunday (will most likely take guest preacher out for lunch then we have our annual dinner at church) - dinner at church - I'm making pulled pork and a side dish but don't know what yet to make for the side

So there you go.  A bit busy but not terrible.  :)
