Stop the insanity

This week has been crazier than crazy. I don't think I can even begin to remember everything about the week that made it so. It was full of the usual commitments and appointments, although we did miss our Tuesday night small group; Brian and I were both coughing a bit and didn't want to subject anyone to it. I'm not sure it was something contagious, though. Mine seemed to be that usual sinus/allergy thing I do every fall/winter, where I wind up losing my voice. My voice was gone on Wednesday and started coming back on Thursday. I'm still not back to normal yet and not sure when I will be. Hopefully I will have enough of a voice to at least sing tenor on Sunday if I'm not 100%.

Because of the coughing crud, we decided to reschedule Halle's sleepover for another night. To celebrate her birthday today, we went to the movies in the afternoon and then to Outback for dinner. Her movie choice was The Game Plan, and it was so much better than I was expecting. I really liked it. I thought "The Rock" did a great job with his role. It looked like he had fun with it. The little girl playing his daughter (she plays the President's daughter on Disney Channel's Cory in the House) was fun to watch. And despite the predictability of some of the plot points, there were enough unexpected moments to make up for it.

After dinner, we went to see the football game at Emily's school the football game at Emily's school so that we could hear her sing the National Anthem. Her choir director (I'll call her Miss S) is in charge of providing the talent for this and had asked for those choir members who were interested to sign up. As Emily was leaving class that day, Miss S asked her if she had signed up. When Emily responded in the negative, she was told, "Well, do it!" Tonight was originally intended to be a duet, but the other girl could not learn the harmony part quick enough, so Emily did it solo (and a cappella). She did a very nice job. I hope she'll get a chance to do it again, although I don't think she would say the same!

I have a ton of housework and laundry to catch up on this weekend. Truthfully, I think I'd rather sleep. (Anyone who knows me IRL knows that is a totally out-of-character statement, so it just speaks to how tired I really feel!)

Sounds like you had a crazy week and didn't feel that great at the same time--not an easy combination. I pray you are feeling back to your perky self soon!

Go Emily! What an honor to sing at the ballgame! I know you had to just about be grinning all the way through as she sang!

I just saw "The Game Plan" with my daughter yesterday afternoon. I also was surprised how much I enjoyed the movie. Hope you're feeling better!

I'm sorry I'm so late dropping by to comment on your latest post, but I've not been blogging much the past couple of weeks, either posting or reading and commenting. I'm trying to get caught up today.

I hope you are now feeling better, Karen, and have had a chance to get some rest.

Congratulations to your daughter on singing the National Anthem at the football game! That's really great.

Take care and drop by Finding Direction when you have a couple of minutes to get caught up with me!

Cheers & Blessings to you all today! Dee
