A Woman's Work Is Never Done

Let me just say that it is BEAUTIFUL outside today. Not too hot and all the humidity that's been hangin' around the past few days has disappeared. We did get some rain (hooray!) from the remnants of Ike yesterday, but today is clear as can be. Not only is the weather perfect, but when we came home from church I got to sneak in a few chapters of my latest book (Eragon-thanks for the recommendation Liz), and then take a little nap. On my list of favorite things, that might have to be number 1. But it was cut short by Roger letting me know that the Bishop would be coming by in a few minutes. Hmm...what now. He asked me how my calling was going and if I was comfortable. A no brainer there. "Well, we'd like to add something else onto that calling and take you outside of your comfort zone." By putting me on the Enrichment Committee. HAHA. I don't think that he expected laughter in response. Are you kidding me? I quickly explained that, aside from piano, Enrichment is smack middle of my comfort zone. In fact, I'm pretty sure that there is some kind of comfort zone headquarters there. I don't remember the exact number, but I know that it was years that I was Enrichment Leader. And I've got the rainbow of colored tablecloths that are crowding my hall closet as a constant reminder (see- you never know when you might need something again). It's been awhile, but no matter, it's in my blood, and not actually having to be in charge makes it all the more fun. Roger, on the other hand, is feeling way out of his comfort zone, but I do love a man in a uniform...

  4. What fun callings. Especially since you are not the chic in charge. And, it is 4 x's a year.
    I think things will be getting tossed around here with our ward. So, we are screening all calls this week!

  6. HA! I was half expecting the buttons on Roger's shirt to be holding on for dear life, and then I remembered, "oh yeah, he's never done boy scouts before." So there's an upside. At least he has a shirt that fits:)

    Do you LOVE Eragon? I'm reading Narnia! Love it!
