Tonight is the prom....but to get to tonight...I had to complete today. We were at the school at 7 to blow up balloons and finish decorating. I had planned to leave the school by 8ish...it was 9ish before I got away....then it was down to my Aunt Shirleys for a birthday gathering....and lunch....we ate...visited with family....I got to play with the new babies (they were there)...Wheeler and Drew. Then we left and ran by Waverly....so we could make an appearance at the 280 Boogie in Waverly...talk about a crowd. Home, running bulletins, setting up the altar at the Arbor...helping the DJs for the prom...I got home again about 5...took a shower...got ready to go back at 7. Leadout was at 8....with the Prom King (Justin Moncrief) and Prom Queen (Radrequia Findley) being crowned....parents were asked to leave....music kicked up...and the prom officially began. We had a great DJ....if you ever need one...please check on Feel the Beat...they are in Westover, AL...and awesome! We gave away money...every 30 minutes...with the final 300.00 being given away just before 11. The prom was then over....65 hours of work....and it was over in a little less than 3 hours. I was tired....went to Huddle House with Mary and Bill for a little food....and then on to the house....I have to return to the gym tomorrow....at 3 for clean up detail. I am sleepy now so it is good night to all the cinderellas and prince charmings.
I am a woman who wears many hats and loves them all. I am a singer - I sing with the group Still Magnolias. I was part of the original First United Methodist Church Arbor Praise Team until we moved. After 24+ years of teaching English 11 and Spanish I - II at Benjamin Russell High School I decided to take a job closer to home. I now teach Spanish I & 2 at Randolph Co. High School and Wadley. I thought I was getting close to retirement and looking forward to it, but decided to move my cheese and try something different. I am a preacher's wife and a preacher myself. My husband Frank is the pastor at Rock Mills United Methodist Church and I am the pastor at Midway (Wedowee). It has made our conversations interesting, to say the least.
