So today was my day in the food pantry at church. We did really well handing out a good bit for the holidays. We had big packs of candy-skittles and starbursts–that we gave out to everybody for Christmas. We just finished a holiday food drive so had a lot to give out. And some big families needing assistance as well–one adult with four children, a couple of families with two adults and three children, and another family that’s parents with a sick daughter and her three children. So that part of it is sad learning all the sad stories we deal with.
I posted a scathing response to this week’s reading for my class, and no one has been really sure how to take it 🙂 . I got so far a couple of “Yes, you’re right, but” answers and one with a response that ended with “You’re right.”. So that has been interesting to see. I hate seeing things badly done that see publication. It makes me angry.
I am fighting the urge to sleep for a bit. I’ve been so busy the past few days that I haven’t had time to sleep. I’m trying to find loose ends that need tying. I need to send a few last Christmas cards, I need to do some last minute food shopping, and I need to work on the last of the house cleaning. I’m going to save wrapping any more until tomorrow, I think. We need to figure out what is from us for the girls and what will go in their stockings. So that is going to be a chore for us this coming week.
My mood has been really good. I hope it continues through the holidays that way. I want to enjoy Christmas this year. So many years I haven’t.
