Well, I'm off to go and do something I don't normally enjoy doing, which is to travel without my husband. The first three chapters for his dissertation are due on Monday, and I thought it might really be helpful to amscray, if you know what I mean. ("amscray" = "scram" in Pig Latin for those of you not in the know...)
Actually, the real motivation for taking off, is a youth weekend at my former youth pastor's church. He hasn't been a youth pastor in over twenty years, but I guess I'll always think of him in that way. At any rate, I'm hoping that my kids will be challenged and inspired! My dad came up with a plan to take me and the little ones to Sesame Street Live-- and I'm actually kind of excited about that. (I must really be hurting for excitement, huh?) I also plan on hooking up with one of my old best friends, Lisa. We were both bridesmaids in each other's weddings and used to sit around and dream about what it would be like to be wives and mothers. Now we've both got a passel of kids and not enough time to sit around and dream. We'll probably be lucky to get two words in edgewise as try to have a conversation in the midst of eleven children. I haven't seen in her in nearly two years.
So, I'm off! Have a good weekend, everyone.
