Just when I thought I was on top of my game, it seems I fell behind again. Where does the time go? Shortly, I will be overtaken by Little League and T-Ball to add to my list of things to do. Was this chaotic life decided for me before I was born?
I feel I have been "awarded" more than my share of tasks. I think God may have known that my Mom has successfully handled more than a full plate and felt I could do it too. It is very clear to me that I did not receive those responsibility genes and feel that my life plan needs to be corrected. (preferably as soon as possible).
Beason U.M. Church is having an Easter Egg Hunt on Saturday, March 15, at the Rainbow Grange. Bring a basket and enjoy this happy event. T-Ball sign-ups are also on Saturday as well as Avery's birthday party. There's that full plate again served up just for me!
Sunrise Service is to be held on Easter Sunday for the Beason U.M. Church and the Pullman U.M. Church. Please come out and join us for a great beginning of a wonderful day. I will once again stress that I am not a morning person. It might be wise to keep that in mind.
Our condolences go out to the Weaver family in Calhoun County and in Okinawa, Japan. Our thoughts and prayers are with you. I had Mr. Weaver for class when I was in eighth grade and thought he was great. So, again, we would like to offer our deepest sympathy.
My sons are looking forward to spring break. I feel sure I will be committed by the end of the week. All their teachers say they are such nice kids and I often wonder are they really talking about mine? They are so mean to each other when they are at home. I guess I would rather have them displaying their fighting talents at home rather than school. We often have competitions of who can state they hate the other the most. It isn't pretty at times.
I do have some good news, believe it or not. Jimmy Buffett is coming to Pittsburgh on July 22. I am so stoked about it. If I don't get my paws on some tickets through TicketMaster, rest assured I will be watching EBay like a hawk. I was an incredible EBay junkie for a long time. But, I have learned that you have to stay in control of the sweet taste of bidding competition. I think that's what makes it so fun. However, I made an excellent purchase yesterday. I got Avery a pair of T-Ball cleats for only six dollars. That made my day. I don't think it makes sense to invest in an expensive pair of shoes that the kids will outgrow quickly.
Some final news, I will be celebrating my first year in business in April. It has had some serious learning experiences, but has made me work even harder towards more success in the future. A lot of people think that having a business like mine is such a simple thing. I can assure you that there is more to it than what meets the eye. I am determined to be different and making it something special. Plus, I have two of the funniest co-workers I have ever had. I consider myself very lucky to have the opportunity to work with them.
Good luck to all the baseball teams this season. May we all play well with others.
Health and happiness.
