Highs & Lows
This week has been very interesting, full of highs and lows and in-betweens.
As Monday is one of my only free nights during the week, I drove home after work, ate a quick dinner and went out to run some errands. When I came out of Wal*mart, I noticed right away that my tire was flat. Completely & utterly flat. In my infinite wisdom, I thought perhaps I could drive it to the corner and put air in it. As I backed out of the parking space, I knew right away that driving anywhere was not to be. So I pulled back into a space toward the back of the lot and called Triple A to come rescue me. I chatted on the phone with my mom until the tow truck driver showed up about an hour and 15 minutes later (good thing I didn't have groceries in the car!) and he changed the tire and had me on my way in less than 10 minutes.
So yesterday I went to my favorite tire place but they did not have the right tire. So I was late for work and had to then leave early on top of it because the tire came in the afternoon. But I was in & out of there in 6 minutes - seriously! They rock.
And then on the way home, I got a call from the workcamp folks. The site we really wanted for next year had been sold out with a waiting list of 80 people. I begrudgingly accepted another site I did NOT want but asked to stay on the waiting list for the first. Well, God was at work - and now we are going to our first choice. Yahoo! The kids will be so excited. Every week at youth group we tell our highs and lows for the week and I will surprise them with this news as my high tonight!
Last night was Bible study (which I think is going well) and tonight is youth. This is our first foray into a guest speaker tonight - last year, this did NOT go well, so I am praying that some of our discussions as of late regarding respect will have sunk in enough to not to have this be a debacle.
Tomorrow I will be frantically cleaning my house as I think there is a meeting at it on Saturday...yes, I know that sounds odd but I am not sure yet if the meeting has been "officially" moved to my house. It needs cleaned anyway, really quite desperately.
