The weekend got away from me
Sunday, December 06, 2015
Granted, it was a fun weekend.
Friday is Pizza Night at our house, but instead of ordering takeaway, I made my own with a store-bought crust, jarred sauce that I bought at Ledo's Pizza (I love their sauce), and my own toppings.
Saturday was the rehearsal for our church Christmas music program: "Mary, Mother of Mercy, in Scripture and Song." The format is similar to "A Feast of Carols and Lessons." Beautiful traditional anthems, Christmas carols, contemporary praise music, adorable squirmy children's choir. I sing with the Folk Group, which is highly improvisational. Or seat of the pants; take your pick!
And that afternoon, we hosted about 50 friends for heavy hors d'oevres and wine. I love entertaining, and am fairly organized about it, but I still get very nervous--what did I forget? Do we have enough beer and wine? What healthy options do we have? And how do we keep the dog out of the food? The party went off without a hitch. Since most of the guests were active duty or former military, there was plenty of help--I love the military spouse culture of jumping in to help when needed!
Today was a continuation of the cleanup, Mass, the music program, and a trip to Home Depot to buy more outdoor lights and replace the toilet seat that broke during the party.
Bottom line: my food intake was awful and exercise nil. On the other hand, I caught up with friends I haven't seen in forever, and fed my soul with music. I'll take that trade. Tomorrow the gym beckons, and I have a ton of cut up veggies to work with!
