My Holy Hangover

First off: Mad props to Shawn for the term Holy Hangover.
So what is a Holy Hangover? It’s what we in the ministry affectionately call that feeling we get on Monday Morning. Especially after a day like yesterday:

  • 1:30 – going to bed b/c we are at the beach and get to sleep in tomorrow morning!
  • 7:30 – Up and packing
  • 8:30 – Breakfast
  • 9 – Lead worship for last weekend retreat session
  • 10:30 – Say goodbye and pack up
  • 11:30 – Grab a bite to eat
  • 12 – On the road!…with 2 kids..ugh….
  • 4:10 – Backing trailer into the driveway…Orange Beach -> Baton Rouge in 4 hrs! BOOYAH!
  • 4:15 – Pulling out of the driveway in Rae’s car
  • 4:38 – Youth group! (8 mins late)
  • 6:20 – Wrapping up Youth (20 mins late but was so worth it! Amazing youth tonight!)
  • 6:30 – Changed and off to downtown
  • 7 – Arrived at Whitney’s Celebration Service for 10 Years at First Pres.
  • 8:10 – Hugging and goodbyes
  • 9 – Eating lunch…dinner…um…whatever
  • 9:30 – Check emails put on Psych! It was a Bollywood theme!
  • 11 – Heading to bed. Probably one of the earliest in months…years?

And voila: Monday Morning’s Holy Hangover.

How are you feeling this morning?

    Saturday: Grandma #1 (EK’s) – visit to see the spectacle of a house she’s dog-sitting @ (Something like 8k sq. feet + terraced back yard – in the middle of the city).

    Grandma #2 (Mine-maternal) – Drop off boys. Go to Grandma #3

    Grandma #3 (Mine-paternal) Visit grandfather @ nursing home. Realize I don’t know alot about him and struggle to talk with him because he’s been so quiet (they’ve only been married for like 15 years but I’ve only talked to him about stuff I’ve done).

    Grandma #2 – Dinner.

    Wake up @ 6:30
    EK leaves @ 7:00
    I get little-m and little-J up. M says “Daddy I don’t feel…” “blaaaaaargh”.
    7:01 – clean up puke.
    9:01 – clean up puke.
    20:00 – send cap’n pukey pants and his brother to bed after M tells me “I want to jump from the stairs at the top of the basement”.

    Guess it was a one day thing…

    So, no hangover for me today! 🙂

    Ha…ok you do realize that my post was just 1 day? That alone was Sunday 🙂

    Dude, I hate/love the 1 day sicknesses. Love them b/c they’re only 1 day but hate them b/c it’s usually like an extreme 1 day!

    Michelle…gift bags to kittens?!?!
