Good Sunday

Today was good. It was quite different from the normal Sunday. In fact, I never made it to the Dowden’s! I had no meetings before church which was good because I enjoyed sleeping in and then spent time getting ready for teacher development tonight and making signup sheets for break the fast. Church went well, but our numbers seemed low. We had good lessons throughout the block, then had Frank’s baptism which was great. Shortly after that it was time for dinner and our class at the Rodriguez home. I was thinking about ditching out on branch prayer – I had told myself I was going to come home and do something productive like write to Tara – but Larilyn wanted to follow me to Sister Baca’s. Being that I knew I should be at branch prayer and that she wanted someone to follow, I decided to go. It was good, I’m glad I went.

I think our class went well tonight. We really just had an ongoing discussion regarding teaching and fortunately I didn’t have to talk much at all. I was happy with the outcome, but I was a bit disappointed in the lack of attendance. The problem is that the teachers who really need to be there are the ones that don’t come. We’ll have to find another way to reach out to them. Any ideas on how we could improve or how we could get more to attend? We’re already including dinner and while I know Sunday is a busy day, almost every other day of the week has something on it already so I doubt it is any better. I guess I’ll just have to extend more personal invitations to everyone next time around.

I’m interested to see what this week will bring. I have a feeling that things are going to get kind of crazy, but I guess only time will tell.

Lazy Bum

My life has just been pretty darn boring lately. It’s probably my doing. I guess I just needed a break from the craziness. I was home for dinner Wednesday through Friday! Things got crazy at the office with Tara gone Thursday and especially Friday with Tara gone. I spent way too much time watching television lately, I feel like a bum and yet that is about the only thing I feel like doing. As soon as I get done writing here I will watch the new made for TV Knight Rider movie and then it will probably be off to bed.

Sadly I can’t really think of anything worth writing. I haven’t really come up with what we are going to do tomorrow night for teacher development. It’s going to be more of a discussion/question & answer session than a necessary lesson so hopefully I don’t need to do too much prep, but I do need to come up with some questions and my answers to them. We’re probably only going to have 30-45 minutes so we may not make it through more than a few questions if everyone participates, but preparedness is really the name of the game. I’m probably not setting the best example here, but I have been thinking about it a lot which I think definitely counts for something.

Well, I guess I’ll stop boring ya all now and get on with Knight Rider…
