Sunday morning rush

It is 6:35 a.m. Have you seen me posting much this early? NO! :)

I am cooking 30something sausage biscuits for Sunday School. Yes, we are expecting that many kids.

Then I have to iron (blah), wake the kids and force them to get ready (joy) and fix my daughter's hair. I need to be out the door by 8:50 a.m.

We are eating a free lunch at the church after service. yay! no dishes! And it is spaghetti, my favorite.

So, without further ado, the following is from yesterday's journal entry:

10:30 a.m.....790 cals
1.5 cup bran flakes
half cup granola
1.5 cup 1% milk
12 almonds
1 whole banana

1:45 p.m...1,105 cals (yikes)
salad with lettce, tomato, 2 T. dressing, chicken, 1 oz. cheese
extra large strawberry smoothie (it was so good!)

4:45 p.m....100 cals
20 almonds

8:30 p.m...740 cals
2 tacos
2 sugar free puddin cups
fiber plus bar

cals= 2,735
water=74 ounces
exercise= 6 minutes (wow...another one in the books for poor time management. Hope to make up the rest of it today, even though I normally don't exercise on Sundays)

If you celebrate Easter, happy Easter. I celebrate the resurrection, which may or may not have happened at this time of the year. But I have no problem using this day as a day to remember that. I *DO* however have a problem with the bunnies, candy and egg hunt stuff. It has nothing to do with Jesus rising from the dead, IMO. You ask most kids to tell you what Easter is, I'd say 99% of them will forget to tell anything about Jesus. I think that is because we let the glittery commercial stuff overtake us. So, my family does none of the glittery commercial stuff. To sum it up, if you are going to celebrate the resurrection, let it be THAT...the resurrection...and not a bunch of other junk. Ok...I'll get off my soap box now ;)

Thanks for reading (and by the way, you don't have to agree with me....I'm just telling how I see it)

  1. Yes, that IS what this day is really about... that He arose from the grave, and we gratefully celebrate what He did, out of love, for us.
