So, I would suggest (whether you like country music or not) that you download this classic Dixie Chicks song. I've been listening to it on repeat because it makes me so stinkin' happy. Some Days You DO Gotta Dance, Dixie Chicks. You're so wise. Ok, on to serious business. Hah.
So, I had a fantastic weekend. It's been a while since I could say that truthfully. I'm kind of a home-body, anyway, and feel like I've always got something to do (i.e. entire previous blog post). Well, this last weekend was no exception, but for a change I had both fun & unfun things to do. I'm sure those of you who know me well can guess this next part...long story short, a stronger woman than I could've gotten everything done. What...a surprise. I chose to make sure ALL the fun was had, and the unfun stuff got to hang out waaaaaaaaay on that back-burner all weekend. Mmhmm. I seem to do that really well. Moral of the story: I'm kicking myself today. But, considering you're here reading these words now, you've probably already read what I think/feel about that little recurring sitch in the post below this one, so I'll move on (finally).
We had our Phi Lamb Boot Scootin' Date Party on Friday. I'll just say that I really had an incredible time. It was a blast. I had a blast. Blast. :)
Saturday I slept in for the first time in a loooong time, and it was glorious. I really didn't do much of anything during the day (insert kicking myself for that now). I'd like to take this opportunity to blame the Olympics for that portion of the weekend. Thank you very much. Then Saturday evening I went up to the Rec for a friend's surprise birthday party, which was tons 'o fun. :)
Sunday morning I got up and went to church. Got to usher before it started instead of greet in the Children's area like usual, which was a nice change up. I think I might start doing that regularly, and then afterwards I got to stand at the back by the little table with bags for the people who made first-time commitments :) I love people watching, so I especially enjoyed this last part. I love the church I go to, and how it looks so much like the Church described in the Bible. A rag-tag group of people who don't really fall into any kind of stereo-type of what a church in Lubbock, Texas "is supposed to" look like, but are doing our best to look like and serve like Christ. Love it. Which, also, if you know me, you probably know that. So, Sunday night is when I go to one of the college LifeHouses, and I also love that. I go to a newer one, yesterday was only the second time we've met together, and I really enjoy it. It's a much smaller group than the one I'd tried before and I really like the more intimate setting. We've been talking about singleness at church the last two weeks and that's been so wonderful, and so it's also what we've been talking about at bible study, and I've also really enjoyed that. I don't think I realized until last night how confused some guys really are when it comes to women. Which, really, I shouldn't be surprised at all with all the guy friends I've got, but it was nice to hear some of their genuine questions & get to answer them as honestly as possible, and then for them to do the same. It was good times.
Well, there you have it. My weekend. You're welcome. Haha. I know you were all dying to hear every detail, so there you are. I've been thinking over a more meaningful/Jesus-all-up-in-it post, but I don't have it quite figured out yet..ya know, how to string the words/thoughts together into sentences. But, hopefully that'll be the next thing I write about. Unless something hilarious happens. Then, well. No guarantees. (But Jesus will be all up in that one, too.) :)
I hope you have a fantastic day,
