Friday Night Musings




As it seems with every Friday night,
I now have a date with my washer and dryer.
What better time to visit and catch up on blogs?
Or even take a chance and try to write one
in it's entirety!

It was a full 5 days for me this week.
I'm tired but it is a good tired.
I spent 1/2 a day at a College Fair.
100's of colleges being represented
and 1000 of kids getting information.
I have one word for that experience...
EXHAUSTING!
Yes, it was fun but when you are responsible
for the well being of someone else's child,
it can be stressful.
But we made the bus for the return trip home, 
laden with about 30 pounds of paper in tow.
I'd say it was a success!

The young man I work with continues to inspire me
and make  me laugh.
He has taken to calling me his
"auntie."
I am flattered and humbled.

The project in Drama
is an exercise in Lip Syncing.
It must contain choreography
so it's a most enjoyable hour of the day for me.
One of the talents of "my" young
man is Beat Box.
He is quite good and I am learning a lot.
A second career for me in my golden years, perhaps?

Physical Science is a challenge for me.
I was never one to raise my hand in class
while I was going to school but for some reason,
I am fighting the urge to raise it now
when a question is presented to the class!
Don't tell anyone,
but electrons, neutrons and protons
are not my forte'.
I'm just glad it's not Algebra...
I couldn't even fake my way through that!

I pass several wonderful barns on my
way to and from work.
I hope to be able to stop one day to
snap some photos.
They are a bright spot
on my commute.

Tomorrow is my oldest 27th birthday.
I'd like to know how the hell that can be
when I'm sure I'm still only 29!
The girl, her boyfriend and I will
set off in the morning to spend some
time celebrating 
with my son.
It will prove to be a very
interesting day.

I'm sure I've babbled on too long
but it felt nice to be here tonight.

Enjoy your Saturday!
Hugs all around.
Been missing you.

It is good to hear from you. You will find your rhythm. I hope you all had a wonderful birthday celebration.

Catherine said...

Dear Jill, You sound like you are finding this experience fulfilling.
I am happy for you.
We are all on a journey at a stage in life that I don't think we expected to be on at this time. I am sure that the Lord has something in mind that He will reveal in His time.
I am glad that it is a good and fulfilling tired. You will sleep well.
I wish your son the happiest of birthday's and a good year ahead.
I don't know how our children got to be this age either, but it is good that you are still 29, I think that is just about my age too.(lol)
Blessing my dearest and a hug. Catherine xoxo
