I am dying. Today is Monday....not just any Monday....but a Monday following Homecoming week, a Women of Faith conference, and Frank being gone. I left Thursday night at 11:00 headed to Duluth, GA, got up at 6:00 (Georgia time) the next morning, conferenced until 10:00 that night....got back to the hotel around midnight....got up again the next morning and did it again....when I got home Saturday night I did not think I would be able to walk into my house I was so tired....but I did. Frank got home from school about 45 minutes after me and we went to get some groceries, eat supper, and get ready for Sunday. I was in bed by 9....and I don't even remember Frank coming to bed. I woke up at 6 on Sunday morning and hit the ground running. After church Frank left for Atlanta to stay with Randy because Amanda had to go to North Carolina. It rained all afternoon....and I loved it. I just rested....but a nap evaded me.....at 10:00 I took Beau out....one more time....and we went to bed. He crawled up and let me pet him for a while...then wiggled under the comforter to sleep.....at 12:00....he came out from under the covers like he was on fire....barking his fool head off and heading to the front door. I kept the lights off and slipped out to see what was disturbing him.....there was nothing. We went back to bed....at 1:00....here he goes again....and the sequence continued....2:00, 3:05, 4:15(at this time....I looked out the carport....saw nothing....let him out....he sniffed where Franks car normally sits....howled like he had lost his best friend....and went to the door. Personally, I was ready to kill him.....dead!....back to bed until 5 when I finally got up. I drug around the house getting ready....where was Beau???? Sleeping soundly on the couch. When I left....he did not even stir. He is probably still sleeping there....or at least will be til Frank gets home. Where am I? I am dying at my desk. There is not enough caffeine in this place to keep me from yawning....good thing I have an intern. Tonight I have Bible Study...and will spend the night with Mary....hope she is not planning on a slumber party.....cause as soon as I hit the bed....I am going to be long gone.....I hate Mondays....especially when I have had not sleep. Hope yours is a better one.
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.
