Wow, I've been so busy since Friday. Sometimes (often?) I issue multiple Facebook status updates per day, but I realized this evening that I hadn't posted there since Thursday.
I haven't been able to clear out my recent emails since then either. I've been trying to keep reasonably aware of what's in there and pare it down.
Tomorrow is March!!! There is only ONE patch of snow left on our lawn now: the sad remains of the giant snowman the kids built back on February 3rd, with snow that had been on the lawn since January 2nd. I wonder if it will be all green grass by tomorrow morning.
Friday night we had a friend over, Saturday Jason had rehearsal and then we had more friends over in the evening for dessert and games (Mad Chatter, Cancellation Hearts, Pit, Bananagrams, Ping Pong).
This morning at church we tried out a new computer program (OpenSong), a "free, open-source software application created to manage lyrics, chords, lead sheets, overheads, computer projection, and more." It worked GREAT. David was on sound board, Jason on drums, I was singing, and Emily ran the chord charts on my laptop! So much better than flipping through a powerpoint presentation like crazy when the worship leader decides to sing different parts of the song over again in different orders, etc. Just click on the slide you want and presto. So nice for the singers (me, in particular) not to have to run the slides, either. Just sing, worship, and keep an eye on the worship leader for cues. Way better.
After service, we had pizza all together and then stayed for an afternoon course for ministry leaders or people wanting to serve and help at church. Then a quick trial of teaching a new barn dance to 12 willing subjects (a much-needed exercise as it was a royal mess and now I know exactly what NOT to do at a real dance evening with this dance!). Then home for some downtime...
And now it's time for bed again already! Sleep well. Or have a nice afternoon, if you're on Pacific Time...

Sure wish I lived a little (well, okay, a lot) closer to Game Control Central over there where you live at #3! I got to play lots of Bananagrams when Nathalie was here, which was great fun! As we work so very hard, it is very nice to play hard as well! Busily proofreading Linus' latest book...very time-consuming!
