This post is purely random.... Why? Because I felt like posting something. Just because I am posting once a week on the Bible challenge, doesn't mean I can't, or shouldn't, post more.. I figured I would just come in here and tell y'all that I am fine and dandy. Ok, actually I am NOT fine and dandy.. I am now (get ready for this....!) DUST WOMAN!! Seriously? Yup! The wind is absolutely horrendous! I wouldn't be surprised if we no longer have a roof on the house by the end of the day!
Josh and I fed and tagged today (fed cows, tagged any new babies). The pick up was just rockin' and rollin'.. not Rollin' literally. But it was swaying slightly in the wind. NOT fun. The worst part was that we actually had to get out of the truck to tag a new baby! Eh, I thought we would blow away (seriously, though, when we first stepped outside, we WERE running.... and COULDN'T stop!)
Other than that, what am I doing? Well, our Annual CAPE Home School Convention is coming up. (CAPE stands for Christian Association of Parent Educators). Our family has been running the registration for it for several years now. So, naturally, we are sort of busy. I am actually entering some registrations right now... Ok, ok, not RIGHT now since I am typing this post, but in between paragraphs of this post I am doing some. lol! (ok, hold on.. let me go enter a few more....)
Ok, I am back. Like I said, I am entering some registrations. Mostly those for people on the 'board' (you know, the ones that actually make this thing happen.) Actually, I should correct myself. People don't make this happen... God does. If He wasn't on our side with this whole thing, I think it would be a failure. Every year we encounter problems of some type. The online registration isn't working... the website isn't working.... people saying they are members when they really aren't... people unsure of if they ARE members... etc, etc, etc. You get the idea.
The thing I enjoy most is name tags. Yup, you heard right. Name tags. Why name tags? Well, we used to do this thing where we would print out a registrant's name tag and mail it to them. However, after too many people misplacing it and then not being able to get into the convention, we decided to do it a different way. Now we print them and the registrants pick them up AT the registration table (we do 'onsite' registration as well as 'before convention' registration). This way people aren't losing them BEFORE convention. Yes, I say 'before' because some people still lose them in hotel rooms, etc. ;-)
This task is a rather fun process. We print the name tags (dear Daddy makes sure names are lined up and looking nice), then usually Mom, Becs, Josh, and I start putting them together into their respective groups (in other words, if a whole family comes, we paper clip all of their tags together); then we get to put them in alphabetical order in our designated 'holders'. Voila! Once that is done (and 'that' takes a VERY long time...) we are set to go! For that part, any way.. lol! We still have to pack everything into the car. There is a LOAD of things that have to be brought, last minute emails to answer, unpacking everything to double check on a certain item, reloading, and getting there with smiles on our faces.... ha! Actually, all of the 'behind the scenes' people get together for dinner the day before convention. It is a great way to relax, calm down, and get uplifted before the hectic weekend. Of course, since everyone there has been dealing with the same problems, we can always vent our frustrations before the convention. ;-)
Alright, now that I have totally bored you with all that information.... why don't you tell me about what you have been doing lately?? I would love to hear!! Is the weather nice where you live? (go ahead, make me jealous.. lol!)
Ok, off to do a bit of grocery shopping! Can't wait to get your comments!
