So Monday I had a run. It was supposed to take the morning. I left at 8 and didn't get home until 3. There went my day! Monday night a friend fell off a roof and broke both of his ankles! Tuesday spent taking him to the doctor for all sorts of tests (still waiting to see if he needs surgery!). Wednesday, a morning run, volunteering at The Center. Wednesday afternoon, volunteering in my daughter's first grade class! If you don't work and are available, it is actually amazing how much you can help a teacher! You don't HAVE to do things inside the classroom! You can make copies...work one on one with struggling students....give oral tests to help the teacher spend their time with the entire class...read a book to the class so the teacher has time to do one on one oral tests! But I digress! Then I did the second half of the run (I brought someone out this direction for the day and they wanted to go home!) Picked up and delivered a motorized wheelchair to my friend who broke his ankles. Got home in time to grab a bite to eat, then headed straight out to church for youth group. Whew! I THOUGHT it would get better! Then Thursday another doctor run for the guy with the ankles. Glad I am just running him not paying his bills! Then another Amish friend had gotten new dentures on Tuesday and she called. She needed to go in. The had given her swollen sores in her mouth and she couldn't eat and needed me right away. There went the rest of the day! FINALLY got home and decided to continue tackling that kitchen! I LOVE my stove. I love to cook on it! I love that I have enough room to have multiple things going! I love the built in griddle. I love the second oven when I am cooking a big meal. I HATE cleaning it! So...it took me 3 hours...but it now is gleaming!
I am looking forward to chai! My best friend had a rough Christmas and New Year with her mom in Canada getting extremely sick and then dying. I couldn't go be with her then and she has been back almost a week and I still haven't seen her! It has been driving me nuts! So this morning I am looking forward to a WONDERFUL visit. I SHOULD be looking toward some cleaning, organization and such but I am taking time out...renewing our friendship, enjoying a cup of chai and letting her know I care.
Every have weeks like that? All of your plans are messed up and you are WAY behind but you simply have to take the time for someone? Or something? Do you let it bother you or do you go with the flow? How do you handle scheduling mess ups?
