Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

Wow. Long, long weekend. Friday wasn't too bad. Ran around a little that night.

Saturday. Y at 8. To church at 10 to start setting up for the "He Is the King" Christmas show for the rehearsal at 1. At church until 4:45. Managed to get out and get Sheryl her Christmas gift, which because I'm awful at keeping secrets, I went ahead and gave her. It's a Nikon D40 and we've needed to get a new camera for a little while and something happened on Sunday that we wanted one for.

Saturday night. Sheryl and her mom went out and did some Christmas shopping. And Connor had come down with a fever. Sheryl's mom, being a saint, offered to take Connor home to spend Sunday with her.

Sunday. Church at 8:15. Home for a couple hours. Then out to Kinsey's winter dance recital at 3, which is why we wanted the new camera (for blur-less pictures). Sheryl's mom watching Connor meant she missed the recital, which was a major sacrifice for her and Dad. I rushed from the recital and managed to get to church at 4 (slightly late for the 3pm rehearsal). At church until the show at 6 and then breaking down all the stuff we'd set up on Saturday. Left at 8:45. Home to collapse before getting up for work...

Dude, have you guys read "Simple Church?"

I decided at the concert last night that I seriously don't think OC could function without you!!

GREAT job to you and Sheryl (along with everyone else) on the show. I cried a lot (mostly when our England pictures were up, but I was pretty close to tears most of the time).

By the way, I got a couple shots of Kinsey in the kids' choir (I wound up on the front row, unknowingly right in front of her! I even got a wave at one point). I'm planning to edit and email tonight.

Thank you for all the hard work you did leading up to last night...I agree that OC would have some big shoes to fill if you ever left!

You need a sabbath, bro.

Not another Sunday.

A sabbath.

Phil said...

Thanks for the thought, Keith. Sheryl and I actually took a Sabbath back in November and it was amazingly wonderful.

Now, I will say that even when I'm away from church on a Sunday, I still think about it, and hoping I don't get a call about something going wrong. I don't think I'll ever truly get past that until I'm not in this position anymore, whenever in the future that might happen.

We bought a D50 a year or two ago and love it...but you still can get some blur with the fast movements in sports
