Temporarily Lifted

Right...
well so much for the blogging moratorium. Due to sickness, cranky babies and husbands who have a life outside of ME and what I need him to do, I have not been able to do more than make notes, cogitate and otherwise prepare for Thursday night. Thursday night, the night that the stars align, this entire family cooperates dammit, and I commit to digital what is going on in my cranial format. The night that I write this review.

Scratch that.

Thursday night is NOW the night that I will use to prepare to teach the lesson for women's church group on Sunday. This is a first for me and is, if possible, actually MORE intimidating than the intellectual and emotional task of book review writing. Giving a Relief Society lesson is intellectually, emotionally AND Spiritually taxing. I would add to that the public-speakingly taxing aspect... but that is something that actually gives me a bit of a charge. A stomach churning, sweaty, coronary sort of a charge... but a charge nonetheless.

There ya have it, because see? I'm a mommy and I'm flexible like that! Crap no, my perfectionism isn't eating away at my guts right now as I post this thing that is NOT a review... no, I am not cursing in my heart of hearts at my inability to think, type, produce infectious mucous and mother three cutie-patootie rats at the same time. I am flexible. I am Elasta-girl. I am Zen. I am up a sewage creek...

Repeat to yourself...

I do not have to laminate anything
I do not have to laminate anything
I do not have to laminate anything

And if you mess up your lesson don't mindlessly say a cuss word like a friend of mine did.

Wahahahah! As Dadguy will tell ya, it's entirely possible... the cursing not the laminating.

I would worry except the gals in my Ward are great...aaaaaand they already know I'm a freak.

DadGuy said...

I like how you make it my fault. I appreciate that. Really. I do.

bon said...

Dadguy... I think y'all have got a complex. Unless you are the sick cranky baby conglomeration person who told the RS presidency to get me to teach the lesson this week.

heeeeeeyyyyyyy!
It IS all your fault!

"Giving a Relief Society lesson is intellectually, emotionally AND Spiritually taxing."

Truer words never spoken. I tauht for 2.5 years, and I loved it- but it drained me big time. I was so glad it was a once a month thing!
