It has been a pretty fun weekend.
I had the grad luncheon yesterday. Well first I had worship practice at
8 in the morning and then the grad luncheon was 11:30. So worship practice
ended at around 9:30. And of course I was in charge of decorations for
the grad luncheon, so I still had to go buy some stuff. And of course my
gifts for the 8th graders still hadn’t been wrapped, so I had to do that
too. And then I had go actually go decorate the place. Not quite enough
time for me.
I didn’t leave church to go buy gifts til 9:45, so I’m pushing it already.
I get to Party America only to find myself lost in the place. Buying
decorations can be very intimidating for a man that has never done it.
So after about 5 minutes walking franticly through the store, walking
down the similar looking aisles, I stop and calm myself down. Just take
your time and buy your decorations. I find all my decorations and I
leave at 10:20. Oh man. Hour and 10 minutes left.
I hurry over to Yvonne’s house cause she was busy buying wrapping paper
in the morning. Get there around 10:30 and we start wrapping. I’ve
got seven kids. So that’s 7 CDs and 7 journals I need to wrap. Now
how long can that take? 20, 25 minutes? So that should leave with about
20 minutes to decorate, right? Oh man. I didn’t leave her place til
11:20. Time to hurry to church.
11:25. 5 minutes before the luncheon is suppose to start. No decorations
up. Must hurry. Must recruit people to help put up decorations. Jess,
you it! Oh you can help too, Clara and Takako! I love those girls. I
have no decoration skill at all. I didn’t put any skill points into it.
Is that something that’s taught in girl school?
And oh yeah. I still don’t know what I’m going to say about the kids.
Well, I’ve got stuff for Julie, but Daniel? I don’t know quite what to
say. And I’ve got no verses for them. Well, thanks Jenn! Thanks for
a verse! Still don’t know what to say for Daniel. Hmm… now where
is he? Oh you ain’t coming? You going to watch a movie?!? Dude it’s
grad luncheon! It’s for you!!! I’d rather find something to say than
forget about it, but I just have to forget about it.
Grad luncheon went off pretty well seeing how we didn’t do much
planning. It’s all God’s grace that it went well.
Last night my car wouldn’t start. Bummer. Still can’t start.
I didn’t have my car for the day, so I was hitching rides with
whover I could. Jeff drove me to church. Jenn drove me around
the rest of the day. Jeff drove me home.
Jamie and Jason’s wedding was today. I don’t know if I’ve said it
before, but if I have, I’ll say it again. I love weddings. I like
dressing up. I love the atmosphere. I love seeing the big ol’ smile
on the groom’s face as the bride walks down the aisle. It was a good
wedding. Funny moments. From Albert talking to Jamie and Jason’s
mis-kiss. Apparently, they didn’t practice the kissing part in the
rehearsal, so when the Pastor whispered for them to kiss, only Jason
heard it. So when he tried to kiss her, it caught Jamie by surprise.
Now this is only what I heard. Funny even if it’s not totally correct.
It was fun at the reception. I got another garter belt. I shouldn’t
have gotten it. Jeff leapt for it and it got knocked out of his hands
and in front of the two guys next to me. As soon as they go reach for
it, they pull back, both not wanting to grab it. So what seems like
10 seconds of them not wanting to grab it. I snatch it off the ground.
Man. It’s only midnight and I feel so tired. Time to sleep.
