I am late posting today. I have been dragging all day long....why you ask? Well...Marcie and Kim hosted a Lock In for girls last night, ages 3rd grade and up, in our fellowship hall. I helped...because I had done these before (20 years ago)....and thought..."if they can do it...so can I." I lasted until a little after 2 this morning....I am too old for this. I had forgotten how much energy and squeals girls this age have. Energy I don't have. At 2 I told Marcie and Kim I was going home. I called Frank before I came home....so he wouldn't shoot me....and when he answered the phone I asked, "Whatcha doin'?" He informed me..."SLEEPING." I went home...and got in the bed around 2:30...and Frank lovingly waited until I was just about out before he rolled over, tapped me on the shoulder and asked, "Whatcha' Doin'?" Point taken my dear! I lasted longer than Frank thought I would.....the girls finally went to sleep at 5 this morning......I went back at 7 to wake everybody up so we could get them ready for their 8 a.m. Mommy pick up time. I have to admit I delighted in noise as they began to stir. It reminded me of one time when my son came in very late....at six the next morning I decided to vacuum his room with our ultra noisy Electrolux. Payback is hell! After the girls were all gone...and the fellowship hall was put back in order....I told Marcie and Kim I quit! I came home and Frank and I went to have breakfast, go the giant book sale, and Wal-mart....when we got home...11 ish....I died for the next 2 hours. It was a tough day....and I am headed to the warmth and comfort of my bed right now. Hope you all sleep well. Who invented Lock-In's anyway? Were they sadistic? After last night I have decided that they are an event a deranged individual thought up. Night all! Sweet dreams!
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.
