I was at a blog party Saturday night and they did a drawing for some prizes. I won a couple of country cds. I am not a huge country music fan but as I got to looking at the them, I realized that I knew one song. It was a song by Rodney Atkins. It is called “If your going through hell.” I laughed because the reason that I knew that song was because our pastor has played it a few times in church. I know, only in South Georgia can you play country music in church! I gave the cd’s to a friend of mine who enjoys country music and so the music is put to good use. So, if your going through hell just keep on going, you just might get out before the devil even knows your there!
Well, actually this will probably be more of a week update rather than a weekend but lets see how much information I can cram in this post!
On the job side, things were pretty crazy at work this week. We had to submit a corrective action plan to Provider Relations (people who monitor our kids progress) for some time sensitive documents that we were deficient in (sorry for all the jargon). In our original submission, we set a date of November 15 to have it all completed. Well, on Monday, they decide to tell us that it needs to be done by November 7, Friday. We went to work but lo and behold, the printer decided to quit working when I had pages and pages of things that needed printing. It was Friday before they were able to get us a new one. While faxing massive amounts of paperwork to caseworkers for signatures, I joked about us blowing up the fax machine. Then next day, I had several emails stating they could not read what was faxed and could I resend it. So, I was faxing wherever I could find one that worked.
Monday night I went to dinner with my favorite people for a belated birthday celebration. It was good to just laugh and be with friends. Then on Tuesday was the election and by then I was ready for it all to be over! I went to the podiatrist that afternoon because my foot was not getting better and found out that I had a stress fracture. They put me in this stylish shoe for a couple of weeks. Flew back home and managed to be late for choir practice. We were supposed to be practicing our parts on the Christmas musical, but our leader decided to tell us her story of the deer that got away when she went hunting on Monday. Yes, I guess my friends are redneck, although she cleans up quite well!
Wednesday was more of the same at work and left work and went straight to AWANA. I was exhausted at the end of the day! Thursday was about the same and finally Friday was here. I went in to work at 7:00 so I could leave at 3:00 and get to Atalanta. I didn’t quite get everything finished at work so I have that waiting for me Monday morning. Friday night I landed at my cousins house and it was nice to just be with family. We got up on Saturday and helped clean house and get ready for the LSU/Bama game. I made cupcakes and watched the first half of the game and then was off to the Fickle Pickle for a blog party. It was a little intimidating at first to go into a place where I knew no one. I was glad that I went. I met some really neat people and it is encouraging to see that so many people from all different walks of life can be brought together under a common hobby, blogging. I am glad that I had the opportunity to be apart of that last night.
Now, it is Sunday morning and I am blogging and drinking coffee and getting ready to go visit my grandmother and then head home to start the madness all over again!
