Midnight Snack ~ Name a song (or two) that you currently love.
Recipe of the Week ~ (instead of your recipe for life what is it just for the week?)
|Okay HORRIBLE picture, but this one really sums it up! It needs NO explanation. It has been ONE WET WEEK! It has rained constantly! I LOVE IT!|
|I have also felt like my week has been like this! Trying to paddle my way through the rough and fast current so I don't go under! Just trying to stay above water! I have also felt like jumping out of the boat a time or two! LOL|
|And I've felt totally stuck in the mud as if I just can't get ahead and no matter what I'm not feeling like I am really progressing with all I have to do!|
|But....THIS one sums it up the best! Feeling TOTALLY frazzled!!! hah|
Lunch ~ What are your weekend plans? Today I have a list of a million things to get done. Then McKay is having his senior and mission pictures taken FINALLY (after five plus reschedules!). Then he will be doing his "day date" for his last high school dance. SO sad. We then have to go to Logan to a wedding reception for one of Taylor's friends. She is a girl that him and all his friends shared the gospel with and she got baptized in high school and is now getting married in the temple. So awesome! On Saturday, I was going to run a race but I am feeling like I have too much to do. I am hoping to take McKay mission shopping and get a lot done, but he has his very last high school dance Purple and White and so I will be here to take photos of that. Then we are hopefully going to the Mandarin in Bountiful with our friends (we've been planning this for months too but couldn't get four couple's schedules to work out until now!). I really don't have time, but sometimes those kind of things are just as important as getting everything done. I will also spend the day getting his graduation announcements done! Yes, they are still not done! Can't do them when you don't have the pictures yet! GROAN! And Sunday I will attend church and somehow try and become a little less frazzled! Yeah right!
Dinner ~ What is something you have needed extra help with this week. Where do I start? haha It has been ONE of those weeks! Mainly I have SO much to do that the pressure is starting to really pile up on me and so my anxiety level has really been high. Trying to get a missionary ready for RUSSIA in less than two months has not been easy as well as trying to do all the graduation stuff on top of that too. Two months is just not long enough while they are also still in school full time. I have spent at least twice as much time trying to find the right things for him to take than I did for my other sons. Mainly because of how cold it is over there. I have really needed to take the time to sincerely pray and when I do I feel so much more peace. I make sure to not just pray, but to also listen and to write down what I hear and that is when I feel comforted and the peace I need. Prayer has helped me survive. I am finally feeling some peace with the whole Russia thing too.
Midnight Snack ~ Name a song (or two) that you currently love. I have no idea why, but I really LOVE Taylor Swift's song STYLE. I could listen to it over and over! And I did just that when running my final 8 miles of the marathon. I kept hitting repeat on my iPod and listened to it over and over and over. No idea why, but I love so many of her songs. I also love Blank Space. If I am in the car, I will just belt it out as I drive.
