... is the noise of me drowning in busy-ness. And ignoring this poor blog.

sigh. Poor little blog. It's always the first to go.

Relay for Life is quickly approaching, like scary footsteps rapidly coming up behind me. I know something is there, but I don't think I'm prepared to turn around and face it .... Coming up: a Karoake Fundraiser (I will so *not* be singing, but I so *will* be event coordinating); a carwash that I'm hoping our probation kids will put on and one teensy little fundraising lunch I need to cook.

misnomer that that is. I can't cook a teensy little lunch ~ undoubtedly it will be a very big lunch ~ but maybe that will raise more funds. Come, June 13th, please come! I'm ready for this year's event to be over already!

glug.

and I'm there with you ladies. I haven't escaped baby and wedding season and am busy making invitations, making wreaths and sewing little washcloth duckies. I'll be gone most weekends from here until July.

glug, glug.

this weekend I will be in town, but we're church conferencing with a Firestorm team from Bethel that's visit. I wouldn't miss that in the first place, but as well, most of my "family" from my little hometown are going to be up for it too. And they're bringing the kids! Hurray! I like the adult weekends, but I so seriously miss all of my little munchkins. {Groan. That reminds me that I still haven't prepared this week's Kids Church Lesson. Good thing I love those kids too. 5 year old random Jeremy told me last week that he accidentally ate dirt. Actually. He announced it during the teaching time. O, you have to love that, though.}

glug, glug, glug.

all right. Time to put on "South Pacific" and get to the rest of those baby shower invitations. And hopefully I'll have a minute to clean my poor little house {I cannot stand the clutter!} and balance my checkbook. And get some sleep.

Sidenote: Sierra and Aaron, I had no idea you guys had caught up with me here. It would be great to get an email address from you, but I guess I can contact you through Myspace as well. Be blessed!!

    I'm so glad to hear that you are well and busy. It is amazing to me how the seasons of our lives ebb and flow. Sometimes very slow (when was the last time that happened?) and sometimes (most times) very fast. I think I am actually looking forward to the end of August when things settle down and we will be starting our 1st yr adventure in homeschooling. It sounds much less daunting then the coming 6 weeks. And less stressful and less running around in 5o million different directions. But that's just me. :)
    Blessings to you Lisa!

    I am always amused with your blog! I don't know if I responded yet.. but YES YES YES I would love to see you BOTH weekends you are here. (Yes I am that much of a Lisa hog!) We moved to a new place though so I will myspace you my new address. I have class until June 13th every Friday and saturday. But we can meet when my class is out Saturday after 1:00 or anytime on Sunday. I would love to just chat with you. I miss you! Okay, I better go before I tear up. LOVE LOVE LOVE you.

    My you are the busy bee! Hope you have a chance to stop and smell the roses, for they are wonderfully fragrant at this time of the year :-) Be well,
