The WEEK is OVER...

WHEW!  This has been one of the HARDEST weeks of my life!!  =)  I thought that I was a basket case LAST week... but, NO... this week topped it all!!

It started with speaking (which IS my greatest fear) to Mom2Mom on Monday - AND My car didn't start... dead battery!  My verse for the year - Rejoice ALWAYS - came to mind - and I did! Chuck was still home to give me a ride!!!  Then I had to get it JUMPED - thanks to Ricky Murray - and took it to get a new battery!!  They told me that it would be an hour and a half wait... but it was only 40 minutes =)  PRAISING GOD at that point!!

Then... I kept getting messages that people were so excited to hear what I had to say on Wed. night - the night of Communication in Marriage (the one Chuck forgot to tell me about) and I was getting REALLY scared!!  I knew I was ONLY going to read my blog - Chuck didn't want to make me STRESS any more than I was!!  BUT I KNEW that I couldn't do any MORE speaking this week... I was really NOT in my right mind!!  SO... I just read my blog - and it was WONDERFUL to be DONE with Wednesday... 

BUT our Mom2Mom meets on Fridays too.... so I had ONE more session to speak at!!  I was really excited to go too!!  Not real nervous... but anxious to be DONE!!  I started the day with my usual... emails and a little blog stalking - I saw that Taleah had a new blog - Confession Mama - I LOVE reading her blogs!!  Well...  it was the one that is titled "Love" - and by the end I was crying so HARD I could hardly DRIVE!!!  When I got to the church I tried to pull it all together - and someone asked me if I had JUST woke up!!  HAHAHA!!!!  YEP!!!  I guess I looked really GOOD!!  I did say that I am NOT that into make-up =)  

Well... the week is done... and I am so GLAD!!  I am on vacation next week =)  leaving Taleah with one of the HARDEST weeks she has =)  to find other child care!!  SORRY!!  BUT I am going to go have fun with one of my friends, Vicki, in Albuquerque!  So... I will try to blog from my phone!
