I’m Nervous (and some other Wednesday morning thoughts)

So tomorrow night I join the team again…

I told David several weeks ago that I was ready to get back on the team – I’ve been stir crazy. So, tomorrow night at 6:30 I will leave the kids with Don and head to the church for my first rehearsal not as the leader. That part excites me…I am ready to give myself to this ministry again and be a support to David and the vision of the house. But…I have to admit that I’m a little nervous, too. Is that weird? I’m NOT the kind of person that gets nervous – but here I am a little on edge about being on the stage Sunday morning. But even so – I’m committed and ready to get started again. What we are doing in this city is so exciting and I want to be a part of it.

Now for some randomness:

  • Don had the day off on Monday. It was his first day off in weeks and we had a wonderful time together.
  • We took Reagan to Learning Express to pick out some things he wanted for his birthday. All he was interested in was a $50 dump truck. <sigh> Then we took him to the Party Store and he picked out Kung Fu Panda stuff for his party. He such a great little kid and I’m so glad I get to be his mommy.
  • Last night, we had Mom and Dad, Gabriel and Uncle Milton to our house for dinner. It was great to see them all. Mom and Dad have been in Florida for two weeks after my Aunt Kristy passed away. You can read her story at Uncle Milton’s site.
  • Carolyn and I went walking last night. Monday Don and I took the kids to Boombalatties for ice cream. Reagan and I went in while Don stayed in the car with Rylee. While we were ordering, an old guy yelled over at me from his table in the corner, “You won’t lose any weight eating that stuff!”. Ohhhhh…those of you who know me can probably guess what came next. The death rays shot out of my eyes and burned holes all through that old geezer – but I kept my mouth shut. Reagan was standing next to me so I couldn’t blurt out what I was really thinking. I got to the car and told Don what had happened and, well….you can probably guess again how he responded. Anyway – that’s what prompted the walking session with Carolyn last night. It was a little bit of motivation to do something about this baby weight. πŸ™‚
  • I talked with Reba Monday. They’ve been going through so much – please keep them in your prayers. Most of you know that Reba’s mother, Dottie Rambo, passed away in a tragic bus accident while she was traveling in Missouri. Also, Dony has been having some major health issues and they need a miracle. I appreciate your prayers for them.
  • I don’t have a piano anymore and that makes me sad! I’ve always used the keyboards at the church and now that I am not working there anymore I haven’t played the keys in about two months. 😦
  • Rylee is almost six weeks old already. She is a great little baby and is growing and changing so fast! I’ll post some new pics later today.

    I’ve never heard of Boombalatties, but the name is too cool! I love it. Where is it? My kids and Anthony are icecream freaks! Me, I it’s ok, but just give me a big ole’ whopping chocolate cake with a bunch of choc. icing and some whipped cream topping and I’m good. Or of course a PCJ Mocha shake….but I’ won’t get started on that cause next thing ya know I’ll be in the car headed to get one. Good thing the closest one to us is 20 min. away…..seriously though, I can’t beleive the old man actually yelled that. Wow! The nerve. Especially in an icecream store I mean, what did he expect to see in there, and for that matter, what the heck was he doing?

    No piano! That’s a crime for people like us. I would die without mine. But I’ve gone for stretches of time without my keyboard and it was torture. So I know what you mean.

    I hate the for Reba and Donnie. Really. I can’t imagine. I’ll add them to my list.

    Can’t wait for Reagan’s party (BTW are you registering him at Learning Express for his BD?), and seriously can’t wait to have with up there with us all. lol…I still can’t get over that YOU are actually nervous.

    Ok, taht was loooooong, and I’m rambling now, I’ll shut up. I just love ya, and think you’re great. See you tomorrow night! πŸ™‚

    I can personally tell you a lot of people where wondering when you would be back. I had one woman say she was not coming to church if you were not going to be singing anymore, I assured her you would be back. Holy Spirit has a lot of plans for us and our worship team is just the start. YOU GUYS ROCK!:-)

    excited to hear you’re back on the team…. those seasons of my life where i’m just sitting in the pew are always hard. good. but hard.

    I’m so sorry he said that! I remember how devastated I was when my grandpa looked at me after I had my first & said, “Gosh Angela, you sure have gotten fat!”

    Try to remember the weight is temporary, but the mommyness is forever.

    I can’t believe your beautiful daughter is six months already! Post more pictures. Like, right now!

    And I sure hope you can find a way to get a keyboard soon, or something. I know you must be missing that- playing is a wonderful de-stressor and I expect you need one right now.
