Do you ever feel that way? Like you just go go go all weekend with very little rest periods and now how the heck is it Monday again and work again and all I really want to do is take a nice long nap.
And watch movies, because I did manage to watch some of the Oscars last night and it actually served to make me want to see some of the movies mentioned/honored. Any recommendations? I'm very picky about movies in general.
I am trying to keep a grateful heart. Here I am complaining about being so busy but here are two of the things that kept me busy: on Saturday night we worked at our church, which becomes a temporary homeless shelter for families working very hard to secure transitional housing. So yeah, they sleep at different churches every.single.week.for.months. On cots or other temporary bedding. And pack up all their wordly belongings every Sunday and move on to the next church, children in tow. And I got to go home Saturday night and lay my head on my very own pillow in my very own bed in my very own bedroom inside my very own home.
Yesterday afternoon we participated in CROP Walk to end world hunger. The walk itself wasn't anything grueling, we kind of sucked at raising money (it is so hard for me to ask people to support those things, which is lame, I know) and honestly we were complaining about the stops along the walk to learn about the world hunger issues. We wanted to just turn in our money and walk and be done! Horrible, I know. And then we went home, fixed a delicious meal, ate until we were very full, and certainly know where our next 1,000 meals are coming from.... and yet so much of the world goes hungry every single day. I can barely wrap my brain around that since we are a nation of abundance.
In between some of these projects I was studying. Studying studying studying. I have a gazillion index cards with notes on them and the Mister is awesome at quizzing and helping me come up with little ways to keep the details all straight. And it is so much on the details. My head feels like it is going to explode. So I'm trying to be grateful that I have educational opportunities... I am approved to sit for the board exam in about one month. ONE MONTH. Sheesh.
Anyway, I guess I am just craving a completely do-nothing kind of a weekend but I don't see one coming for a very long time.
How about you? How was your weekend?
