7 Quick Takes

Jen Fulwiler hosts this carnival of blogs.  Go around and visit the rest....

1. It was a glorious spring day on Saturday.  Hubby and I went for a walk.  It was glorious.  I found crocus blooming.  Then Sunday it got cold again, but we didn't get the predicted snow, so that was a plus.  After Mass on Sunday we went to Culvers.  We figured that on a cold, snowy day a place that featured ice cream would be empty.  That was not the case, but it was a nice thought.


2. On Monday I made the supreme sacrifice and stayed at school for a sweet forever.  I was staying for the book fair.  I didn't sell much that night, but I did have a nice talk with a Knight of Peter Claver which considering we were sitting in a public school library was interesting.

3. Tuesday I had spiritual direction.  I am still on my mission to use my gifts and talents to bring forth God's kingdom.  I explained that this is my little ruler to measure things by.  It has helped me tremendously over the past month to make decisions.  I have a goal this month to read scripture and look for ways that people used their gifts and talents to bring forth God's kingdom.  It seems like a fun exercise.

4. Wednesday was hectic in the morning with lots of book fair buying.  It is a good learning tool for kids to learn the value and limitations of money.  But, it makes me a little crazy.  Who am I kidding?  A lot crazy.  Wednesday I had book club after school, but I was free to stay home in the evening.  I needed that.  I had an inner ear thing going on and I felt very dizzy.

5. Thursday I had to stay for book fair and parent teacher conferences.  I was more relaxed this week than I ever have been about the book fair.  When I discovered that someone had stolen a plastic cockroach, I was momentarily perturbed, but then I thought, if they don't want them stolen, they shouldn't try to sell lifelike plastic roaches.
I put the rest of these at my desk by the cash register.  No more plastic roaches will be stolen at my book fair.


6. My foot has been a pain this week, as have my knees.  I feel pretty discouraged about this, but I trust that God has a plan for me.  It may not square with my own plan, but it will be the best plan for me.  I am anticipating the physical therapist calling me to check up and I am not looking forward to speaking with her.  I really miss her foot rubs, but I think I went as far as therapy would allow for now.

7.  And next week is spring break.  I am hoping to have some kind of fun.  I am not sure what that will be yet, but some kind of fun.  Tomorrow is the Magnificat Women's Prayer breakfast and I am looking forward to that.
