Friday means I get to sleep in as late as I want to tomorrow. I’ve been so tired lately that I may just stay in bed until lunch. Probably not, but just knowing I can makes me nigh giddy.
Friday also means that I get to meet with my Homies. I adore that about Fridays because I love my Homies. A few of them weren’t able to make it this morning and I missed them, but I was sure happy to be with the ones who were there.
We’re doing Beth Moore’s study on the book of Daniel and it’s some powerful stuff. I find it interesting because several years ago I wrote a play for VBS on the book of Daniel. I read the entire book a few times and then each chapter numerous times as I wrote each scene. It’s fair to say I have a pretty decent knowledge of the whole book. But Beth Moore digs deep and reveals fascinating tidbits that writing a children’s play just doesn’t uncover.
I’m sick again. Not terribly so, but enough to be exhausted and feel a bit icky. No worries, though. As I said above, I get to sleep in tomorrow morning. And if I do nothing more than lay on the couch all day after that then no biggy.
Katie tried out for the school play and made it. We don’t know what part she has, but the play is the comedy Lagooned. Here’s a synopsis:
Just sit right down and enjoy a tale – a tale that combines parts of Fantasy Island, Treasure Island, and Gilligan’s Island. Now you’ve got some idea of what’s in store when you’re lagooned. In this sequel to Tim Kelly’s ever popular play, “Don’t Rock the Boat,” some favorite characters do their best to survive on a weird atoll in the South Pacific, the home of cannibals, jungle drums, and nasty wildlife including a gorilla! They don’t realize the island is actually part of Fantasy Tours, an organization that stages shipwrecks for clients willing to pay the price. The phony natives think the ship’s loonies are customers and the loonies think the natives are genuine. Naturally, when the belching volcano demands a bride, the hilarity explodes! Oh, yeah, the U.S. Navy has mistakenly designated the island for target practice!
Looks fun, doesn’t it??
THIS JUST IN – Katie is watching Everyday Italian and Giada De Laurentiis throws in a “tablespoon” of butter. I made the comment that it was more than just a tablespoon and Katie says, “Mom, it’s an Italian tablespoon. And not only that, but you know how the camera adds 10 pounds.” The silly girl makes my heart smile.
The silly girl also frustrates me. Did you know that 13-year-olds know much more about applying makeup than middle aged women? Yeah. I’m not lying. Just ask Katie.
Taylor is off having an airsoft battle with three other 10th grade boys who think it’s fun to be shot by little plastic b.b.s. Katie is going to a dance at school and then coming home with three other girls for a sleep over. Todd and I are probably going to watch more of season 1 of the Gilmore Girls tonight. It doesn’t get more exciting than that!
