Weekend WrapUp


It was a pretty quiet, low-key weekend around the Casa de Dysfunction.

We had a very busy day Friday, just errands and doctor appointments, nothing fun. It was our "no-kid weekend".

Saturday, early in the morning, I broke. The weight of all of the stress and anxiety that I've been carrying around was just too much, and I shattered to pieces. Thankfully, my husband is very good at putting me back together. Now I am whole again.
We tried to go to Elayna's softball game, but it ended just before we got there (her dad took her). They had already won, 15-1, and she was very happy.
The rest of that day was spent celebrating my niece's 22nd birthday (my main gift to her was her very own pot of my homemade chicken & dumplings!), and then watching the Gator game.

Sunday was filled with church activities. The more time I spend at this church, the closer I get to people, and the more I realize it is such a good fit for us.
I feel like on Sundays, my cup gets filled. During the week, it gets bumped and knocked over and dumped out. Then on Sunday, I go back and get refilled again. So I leave feeling fulfilled.
It's a good feeling.



I love to watch John at church also. He was not raised in church like I was, but he takes to it so well. He isn't skeptical or resistant of the teachings; he soaks it all up like a sponge. It's really an amazing experience.




Now I'm at work. I'm still adjust to my new schedule. I LOVE being home every evening, and not having to come to work until 11pm. But it's hard to come in on Sunday nights, which is the trade-off. It's worth it, but that doesn't mean I have to enjoy it. Heh.
This is the last week of sports for the girls (unless they've added games I haven't heard about yet!). The less hectic schedule will be nice, but we've all really enjoyed this and I know we'll all look forward to it starting again.
Alright. If you want to WrapUp your Weekend, go to it! And then link up here.

And have a great week!

That was some weekend. I'm glad you've found so much peace with your church. Being refilled each week sounds like a wonderful way to begin on Monday.

It must have been a good weekend for meltdowns since I had a bit of one too! Feel much better now and sometimes I think it's a necessary evil just to release all that junk.

We're still searching for that right church fit...maybe we'll find it someday.

I like watching my kids play sports, but I LOVE it when the seasons wrap up. By the time tournaments roll around, I'm always ready for the end!

Aww I hope you are feeling better after your meltdown! Sometimes they are just necessary so we can move on!

I'm sorry that you broke, but I'm glad that you let it out and that you have someone to help put the pieces back.
