So, I have a long to-do list this week, and all of it is stuff I really want to do (not like cleaning or other chores), and sometimes I get the motivation to do this stuff, but I don’t know where to begin, or I feel really scattered with it. This is my frazzled excitement.
So far, I’ve at least started a few things. As you can see, I added yet another new page to this blog – Photography. There’s only four photos in it right now, but I definitely plan on adding more as I continue to watermark them. There’s just a lot I want to add, so it will take me some time, but at least I have four to share with you so far. Go peek at them, you know you’ve been waiting for it! ;) Well, I know you haven’t really been, but I hope you enjoy them anyway. :)
I got my time and abilities sheet from my church a while back. This is the sheet where you sign up for all the stuff you want to volunteer for. I never fill mine out and send it back, especially considering I lived in NJ for 3 years, and the church is in PA (but they were still sending me stuff in NJ!). I haven’t been to church at all since, let me think…my wedding day! That was 3 years ago, and wasn’t even a church service. I’m surprised they still send me stuff and haven’t ex-communicated me yet, lol. But all kidding aside, I’m not an extremely religious person. I do believe in God and Heaven and all that, but I don’t necessarily feel you have to go to a church every week, and give all your money to them (after all – God isn’t the one needing my money) in order to have your beliefs. I apologize if I offended anyone here. To each his own. This time, however, instead of just throwing the form away, something made me look it over. Now I’m thinking of signing up for a couple things. I love working with kids – they are looking for vacation Bible school helpers (and I even just told my hubby the other night how much I used to like Bible school). And who ever knew my church has or is starting a dance group?! Obviously I love dance, I’m even trying to start my own dance business (which I offered classes to the church’s preschool, but was sadly declined), so definite check mark on that one! However, in typical fashion of me, I am late in returning it. So now I have to write a note to add to it apologizing for my tardiness, and find out what that dance stuff is all about. Really? Dance group in a church? It also got me thinking maybe I should go to church more often, especially if I’m volunteering. I’m not a morning person though, and I am not a fan of the long, drawn out services on a Sunday morning, so I’m thinking of attending some of the Saturday evening services. Maybe I’ll go with my Grandmom. Anyway, I filled out the sheet, now I just need to write the note, send it back, and see where to go from there.
We have new members to Thunderbolts, and I have been working with them a little. I have been wanting to work on a routine or at least help out and collaborate with another instructor on one, and I mentioned this to the director. I don’t want to step on anyone’s toes in the group, since they’ve been around all this time, and I went away for 3 years. But last night I got asked to get together with one of the instructors to work on the new routine. YAY! :D So I’m excited about that. I even stayed up way too late last night listening to music and trying to find some good ideas with that twirling ear of mine.
I am thinking about starting a “Scrapbook Saturday” post on here. It might not be every single week, since some Saturdays get busy with other activities. I have a TON of scrapbooking stuff to work on from the wedding, bridal shower, honeymoon, etc., that I bought but then never got around to completing. It’s still all here, and all of those events were 3 years ago! It’s about time I get to it, and I thought some motivation might be to do a post on here. I would plan to create at least one page (more if the creativity and time allows), and post it on here every Saturday (or every possible Saturday). So, hopefully I’ll get started on that this week and you’ll see something by Saturday night (or “Scrapbook Sunday” if I only work on it Saturday and finish late).
So those are a few of the major things I’ve been thinking about, trying to start, or need to work on. But those things, along with a never-ending to-do list of other things, makes me feel all frazzled. I just don’t know where to begin, or I want to work on 3 different things at the same time because I’m excited to, and I get all “aaaahhhhh!”. Ever feel like this? I’m sure all you moms have…
