Finally rest...kinda


Well the school year has come to an end. Made it through!!

Of course, I am sore! My knees hurt from crawling around doing inventory for the last two weeks. My leg hurts from a shelf falling and gouging a streak. My thigh hurts from meeting a book sticking out and leaving a very nasty bruise!

I am tired!

And on the last day of my work week? I murdered the laminator. And when I called the repair dude...I had to leave a message. Which means when he comes to repair...I can't defend myself.

On a happier note. This weekend will be busy, but for good reason.

When my ex and I split and later divorced, a deal was made of sorts. He wanted to make sure that mini me went through confirmation in the Lutheran Church where he and his parents belong. Ok. Well, Sunday mini me will be confirmed. I could not be more proud of her. She even designed her own invitation.

I told her that we would go out to lunch afterwards. And I told her to invite her dad & grandparents to join us.

Later that afternoon...Sunday....the local 's Miracle Network telethon will be held. And mini me will be junior hosting. So if you are in the Oklahoma area...catch the telethon. Great organization, doing great things for the of Oklahoma. And somewhere in that last hour will be my mini me!

Last weekend mini me went to a youth function. She worked her butt off to learn a march. She worked her butt off memorizing a part. Then she asked for a postion as a friends page....(She had the whole girls resume postion down!) Sadly the march didn't go off the way it was planned, BUT it went off and that was great. The part didn't place, BUT she did her best which is what matters. She didn't get the personal page postion, BUT instead got a different state postion.

On the way home, she was talking about her plans for her local postion that she will be taking in Jan? And the things that she wants to do? I had tears in my eyes...she wants so bad to help others. And at that moment driving down the road, I saw my mini go from my little girl....to this beautiful young woman!

Thanks...but as the saying goes "It takes a village...." and I have been lucky enough (as has mini me) to have some wonderful people to help us along!

Thank you. And you are to be thanked as well...by allowing her to be a part of your extended family. By surrounding her with honest true love she is growing to be a wonderful young woman...
