I am squeaking in day #31 at the last minute!! Actually, it is already November 1st as I write this. WHAT A DAY I had:
My afternoon looked like this:
1:00 – 2:45 p.m. – grocery shopping at Aldi and local grocery store to pick up best deals from both
3:00 p.m. – pick up big kids from school
4:00 p.m. – drop off Annie-Belle at theater class
4:30 p.m. – pick up Daniel from work (talked with our mechanic today; he may have a solution to his car’s problem and MAYBE next week, I can ditch the chauffeur gig!!)
5:00 p.m. – drop off Drew at basketball practice
5:15 p.m. – pick up Annie-Belle from theater class, 15 minutes late
5:45 p.m. – make a big salad, to share with friends
6:45 p.m. – pick up Drew from basketball practice
7:00 p.m. – dinner at friends’ house to celebrate their daughter’s 18th birthday and my daughter’s upcoming 13th birthday together … amazing shepherd’s pie in homemade pie crust and a lot of laughing because I get giddy when I am exhausted and facing a little social anxiety and eat too much cake. Hopefully I didn’t embarrass my husband too much. Based on the hostess’s laughter, I at least entertained her a lot!!
THANKFULLY (and yet, not thankful for the cause of it) there is no school tomorrow in memory of our school administrator’s son (who passed away after a 5 year battle with brain cancer, at age 23, on Sunday) … the viewing is tomorrow evening and the funeral is on Saturday.
ANYWAY, enough of that … to conclude my 31 Days of Quiet, I just want to say that I thank everyone who followed my journey, commented, or just read my blog occasionally. I appreciate this venue to vent … and I’d probably continue to write if NO ONE read what I had to say. I am thankful for the friends I have who care about me though!!
Slowly, slowly, my insecurities and negative thinking patterns are being removed the more I figure out my identity in Christ and the more I let go of negative and false thinking. My goal for the future is to put my confidence much more in Christ – and a lot less on my failures and doubt!! Maybe then, you’ll hear a whole lot less about my worries, fears, and inadequacies!! Feel free to say “amen” to that!
