so busy I just have to laugh!

I am completely overwhelmed lately, but I just don't even have time to stress about it!  I feel like my life has been a whirlwind of stuff lately.  Basically, everything I am remotely involved in is crashing into each other right now!  I'm sure there are lots of you who feel this way and have tons going on as well.  So, since I really don't have anything to blog about because I can't seem to have 2 seconds to think for myself lately, I'm just going to share with you my schedule just for Sunday (my day of "rest") so that you can laugh along with me, but also pray for me as it quickly approaches!

7:45 am      Elijah wakes up
8:00 am      Leave for church...seriously, Erin, you HAVE to be in the car on the road at this time!
8:30 am      Playing piano for early service
9:45 am      Justin and I start teaching a new Sunday School class for young adults!
11:00 am    Playing piano for late service
12:15ish     Go pick up a cranky child from the nursery who has been surrounded by adults and kids for 4 hours!
12:30 pm     Freak out because I meant to fix lunch/put it in the crockpot but didn't have time this morning to get it done.
12:31 pm    Call Justin to pick up some food on the way home
1:00 pm      Put Elijah down for a nap, want to take a nap myself but there is still a lot of day ahead of me
 ~ here's the point where I'll be preparing stuff for a piano recital reception that I have not planned for yet!~
2:00 pm      Head to the church with Justin to set up for my piano recital (and pay no attention to the point that Elijah is "technically" sleeping at the house being watched by our dog because I haven't planned for someone to watch him sleep yet)
3:00 pm      Piano recital starts and I'm praying that my piano students survive.  (there are a few I'm worried about!)
3:15 pm      Justin heads out of town for a meeting for his upcoming Mission Trip
3:30ish        Piano recital is over and hopefully the food has magically appeared in a room for all to enjoy
4:00 pm      Back at home, Elijah is waking up, ready for me to keep him entertained for the rest of the evening!
8:00 pm      Elijah goes to bed
9:00 pm      Erin needs to go to it, Erin...go to bed now!

I guess the "day of rest" in the life of a music minister and his wife just needs to be another day than Sunda! least next week looks pretty good.  No piano lessons this month and I'll have a week until VBS starts.  Oh goodness.  Thanks for letting me put this into the to celebrate my Dad's 70th birthday and my anniversary!  At least I wrote this all down so I can forget it and just come look here when I need to know what I need to do!

"Through the LORD's mercies we are not consumed, Because His compassions
fail not. They are new every morning; Great is Your faithfulness."
Lamentations 3:22-23

I can see how you must have felt overwhelmed with all you had to do and in the time frame you had to do it. So proud of you for all you get accomplished and the "role of Mommy" being foremost everyday.
We enjoyed Elijah being here and
he was sooo good! He's so good at adapting to being away from his familiar surroundings and that's great. To have slept that 11 hrs. Thurs. nite at PaPa's and Gran's made me feel good.
Glad your piano recital went well and you have the month off. Look forward to your coming later this month. Until then, enjoy a little downtime:) Oh yea, VBS next week!
I Love You!
