This past week was really a week. If ever there was a week that could be called a week, this was the one for me. We had two choir concerts, two choir tour days (outside in the cold rain), bought a real Christmas tree for the first time in our whole marriage, painted my kitchen purple and white and tried to do a million other little things, but didn’t succeed at getting even ten of them done. I am really, really sore. All of my muscles hate my stupid kitchen cabinets. Those cabinets still need two more coats of paint. I said the word “stupid” a whole lot when I was painting those stupid things. I’m afraid I’ve grown to hate them so much that I’ll never want to go in my kitchen again. But I have to say that I had some great conversation on Wednesday when dear Mackenzie came over all day to help paint. We sure talked about a lot. And then the next day, dear Certain Person came over and helped put things back in my cabinets while I was scrambling around getting ready for Sadie’s second concert. Thanks, Certain Person. I sure am blessed.
I am trying not to be a grinch this Christmas. I really am. Some might say that I’m not trying too hard, but those people probably don’t know too much.
Here are some pictures from Sadie’s two choir concerts last week. She had her first ever solo, which Wilmar was so kind to make a video of for us. I really am grateful for the video because at the time of her actual singing it, my heart was swelled with so much pride that I think it affected some of my hearing muscles. So it was fun to watch the video with my hearing muscles working properly. The sound is not that great in the school cafeteria, but the video is fun. Thanks Wilmar! (AKA Soy)
