Meal plan, check! Mary talk, notsomuch.

I had two things on my to-do list for this evening. Plan meals and get to work on my Mary talk for this weekend.

Here's my shiny meal plan:

(next) Monday - curry chicken casserole
(next) Tuesday - TBD, since I have out-of-town company
(next) Wednesday - pasta
(tomorrow) Thursday - eggs, sausage, & pineapple
Friday - turkey burgers, roasted potatoes
Saturday - crockpot beef
Sunday - hot dogs, corn on the cob, fruit

Isn't that marvelous? And here I am writing about it - taking up MORE time to share it with you INSTEAD of working on my talk. Here's the problem - I don't WANT to give a talk on Mary to a high school group of 70 scary adolescents! It's kind of a Jonah-ish attitude, as I really believe God wants me to do this (and so do the group leaders who asked me back in, like, November) - but I don't want to do this. My efforts to bring on a debilitating flu with the power of negative thinking are to no avail. I'm perfectly healthy. I've MORE than read up on the topic --- I just can't get myself to sit down and fill in the outline I came up with. At least I have an outline. Let's applaud this.

I just heard Cayna ask, "Daddy, where's Mommy?" and he answered, "I don't know." The correct answer is "Downstairs blogging, whining about her responsibilities, and trying to get the flu."

I better go. I really better. Time is ticking away. Tick, tick, tick...

I'm impressed...really 1/2 of a to do list checked off is pretty impressive.

However I should not let you off the hook on preparing your talk! The weekend is coming up fast! It sounds interesting and the outline is a BIG part of it, so you are well on your way!

I'm sure God will keep you healthy but I applaud your efforts...I sense another talk topic in there somewhere!

Have fun!

I will pray for you to be strengthened. Really, you have a gift. Not anybody can give the kind of talk you do!

Nice meal plan though!
