For the past couple of weeks we have been so busy, and have had something going on almost every night. On Thursday night I was supposed to attend an inservice meeting for seminary. I was so exhausted, and I just mentally couldn't face another night out. I also remembered that we planned to go to the temple Friday night, and I actually felt that I could do one of those nights, but not both, so I chose to save my energy for the temple night. I am usually the die-hard who goes to meetings even if I'm sick, but for some reason, I just couldn't face going out that night.
We did go to the temple Friday night. I'm so excited because we did the temple work to have my husband's grandfather and great Aunt sealed to their parents, and his great grandfather sealed to his great great grandparents. I have felt for many years that this great grandfather was, as I jokingly refer to it, haunting me to get this work done. I had felt for many years that he wanted this done. But my husband and I are very stupid about geneology, and couldn't figure out how to submit the information, even though we did the foot work to research it. So we passed the info on to my sister in law and she submitted it. I am so happy we had the chance to do this work for them.
As much as I liked going to the temple, that was about the 8th night out in a 10 day period, so by Saturday I was really tired. Last night I was sitting and realized my Saturday was almost over. I thought to myself, "I need another Saturday". Sundays are usually a good time for me to rest and recharge, but my Sundays are busy too.
This evening I was getting my lesson for tomorrow ready and discovered that I'm a little short on material. I don't really want to go ahead because I can't cover the next bit of material in the time I have. It's only the beginning of the week and I'm already tired, and having a hard time getting my lessons together. It's going to be a long week.
