A full weekend

We're looking at a weekend full of things to do (not even counting any housework; my floors will have to wait another day or 2 to get mopped).

We started out last night at church with a cookie/punch gathering to meet the newest applicant for the youth minister position. It was really nice to get to chat with people whom we really hadn't had much time to meet on Sundays or Wednesday nights. As usual, we were nearly the last to leave. We made it home around 10:15.

Today, Brian and Noah are off to Vacaville to CompUSA. Brian's PocketPC is on its last leg, so he is looking for a new one. After they get back, we'll all be heading to Kohl's to do a little shopping. Emily has a too-small shirt to return, and I want to find some nice shirts and pants for the boys to wear on formal night on the cruise. I'd like to get them each a tie, as well. (There is no way I'm buying them suits for them to outgrow after wearing once.)

Also on the agenda for today is the Family Carnival at church. It runs from 6-8 (that means we'll be gone from at least 5-9). Some time before or after that, I need to make dinner rolls (from scratch) for the potluck meal we're having after services tomorrow. I also have to make a dessert... I may wait and do it Sunday morning.

So tomorrow we'll be out of house from shortly after 8 till some time in the afternoon. This is our first potluck with this congregation, so I don't know how long they usually last. It's a weekend of running around... over the bridge and back 3 times in 3 days, 3 tolls to pay (gotta remember to have cash on hand for that!).

At least it's the good kind of busy, though.

Sounds like lots of busyness -- but in a good way! Enjoy!

Michele sent me; I love the design of your site. A family has a good kind of "busyness"!

Sounds like fun. Would you email me your scratch dinner roll recipe? I could stand to learn something new today.
