Our little family had a busy weekend on the road. We took a short road trip to New Braunfels this past Friday to spend a weekend planning for my organization’s 1st Annual Texas Fallen Heroes Family Retreat. We are hosting it at the T Bar M Resort, which is a FABULOUS place! We had a great time with some of my volunteers planning out the retreat activities, swimming, playing games, catching butterflies and caterpillars and just hanging out together. We are back home now, which is always nice but I really miss the Hill Country! Other than the fire ants (which Catherine is deathly allergic to), it would be a fabulous place to raise a child.
Today I am taking a rest day, which I have been mandated to do weekly in order to not get myself back to that yucky, stressful place that I was at a few weeks ago. It’s a pretty easy day to take a rest since it’s storming and I’m not feeling so hot. I am pretty sure I have an ear infection…yet again, which is not good because I have to fly on later this week.
I have been loving all of the meme posts that I have been seeing on blogs recently. I did one a couple of weeks ago and got some great feedback on it. A couple of days ago I found this list off of Becky Higgins’ blog and thought it would be fun to kick the week off with my own ‘I Statements’ list. I hope you like it! And I hope you have a great week!
i was … thinking that I need to get on the ball with planning Catherine’s birthday party.
i am … feeling a bit run down and tired today. I haven’t slept well in a few days which is really hard on me.
i think … I have some of the best volunteers and staff members that help me with my organization.
i wonder … what it would be like if I gave the organization up and did something completely different.
i wish … some days that I got paid for the work that I do but I know that my work is not any less valuable because I don’t get a paycheck.
i save … memorabilia like receipts and ticket stubs.
i always … look forward to the evenings. 7pm-10pm is my favorite part of the day
i can’t imagine … life without John or Catherine.
i believe … the best in everybody.
i promise … I really got a D in High School Photography.
i love … rainy days like today.
i create… by writing, photographing, and art journaling to express myself.
