The rocket took off

The rocket took off. Wow, did it ever! I am so tired. I will be asleep by 9 pm. Savanna is spending the night at Morgan's, so that will be possible. Thank heavens for small blessings like that, that made my day easier.
My whole day was spent at the church, weeding, cleaning, prepping for Friends Day. Bugs love me. They just LOVE me. I got about 20 bites on my legs, so many I can't wear a dress tomorrow. It will look awful. I feel like when I used to be on my grandmother's farm and all the mosquitoes would bite me up and I would have big red welts on my legs all the time. Pastor T says I need some special vitamin in my system that I'm missing that makes bugs go after me. I also encountered a 4 foot (at least) snake today as I was gardening. I was trimming bushes at the church...all of a sudden I notice I am about to cut a snake. I started screaming to the top of my lungs. It got up and hissed at me. I was going bonkers. Sean was laughing and said, "what is it?" I yollered, "it's a snake!!!!!!!!! He said, "how big?" I motioned about 2 ft. long. I couldn't tell the way it was curled up. Well anyway, it slithered away and I was going crazy so he tried to find it to get rid of it. Finally he chased it down and lo and behold upon getting ahold of it he discovered it's at least 4 ft. long. I was FREAKED OUT. I hate, and I do mean hate, snakes. It was not poisonous thank God, but it doesn't matter, I just don't like them. Anyhoo...somebody else took over the bushes after that. I started dusting inside. I dont' want to be a wimp but at snakes, I draw the line.

It's going to be a great day tomorrow. It's finally here! I got home early evening from Friends Day, swung by a store to get Dustin some flowers to give his date (not the original corsage, but a nice bouquet) got the clothes all ironed and ready and everything lined up for in the am, and also everything ready for newcomer's fellowship tomorrow night. By now my legs feel like they are going to fall off. Just so much to do. Monday is going to feel like an awesome break. Jenn invited me to a new Zumba class starting up Monday. I really want to go and try it out but I don't know if I will be able to have the energy to make it.

I have some schedule/calendar decisions to make right now and it's really stressing me out. It shouldn't. I just need to pray about the will of the Lord in the matter. I truly don't know what it is. Very few things I don't have a solid feeling about and this is one of them.

Well today the rocket took off with a start, or should I say accelerrated from last night, BUT - it's a fun ride, no complaints, just waiting for the harvest.
