Wow. I was busy on Saturday. The National History Day judging went well. I judged the junior group performances and was just in awe of what some of these kids managed to come up with. The theme this year was "Taking a Stand" and so we had quite a few interesting historical topics to watch. I always love to volunteer my time for History Day because it's just so darn important to get these kids excited about history.
After I judged, I went and did a little shopping at the mall, then went over and saw my mother-in-law since she was in town visiting my husband. And then it was off to speak at the Bess Streeter Aldrich event. It went very well. Even had people laughing at my lame attempt at humor! I also had an elderly gentleman come up to me afterwards and ask, "Do you speak for senior citizens' groups?" and I responded, "Sure I would!" So he said he will be getting in touch with me. I am looking forward to that, whenever it will be.
When I got home on Saturday night, I was exhausted. And I slept a long time on Sunday, probably too long. But I think I needed to. Unfortunately, that put me behind on my writing chapter's BIAW (book in a week) program that we're doing. I think I managed to write five words on Sunday. Hubby took me out to supper and then we went over to Barnes and Noble where I bought Celeste Bradley's newest book - I just love her stuff. It's an automatic buy for me.
Tuesday is a dentist appointment and my chapter meeting. Ugh. I hate going to the dentist. Hate, hate, HATE. I would rather be knocked out then have to go through it. But I refuse to do that unless someone is in there with me. The last time I was at the dentist, it was rough. I think they filled three cavities at one time and I had a pounding headache the rest of the day for keeping my mouth open so long. From now on, they are going to do one at a time. That's easier on my head and my checking account.
Hope you all had a great weekend!
I've always tried to live with this mentality: One day at a time. Unfortunately, when I implement it, I fail spectacularly. But for this...
