The Weekend Went By Too Fast!

This weekend flew by and, to be really honest with you, I am just not sure where it went.

Let’s start with Friday.  Friday was a relatively busy day for me but very manageable.  Nothing out of the ordinary at all.  That is, until Friday evening.  I decided to go to a local theatre to see some of my parishioners in a Rodgers and Hammerstein production of Once Upon A Mattress.  I generally do not stay up that late.  I went to the 8:00 p.m. showing and did not leave there until 10:45 p.m.  I got back home and to bed around 11:30 p.m.

So, when Saturday morning came around, I was a bit tired from my night out.  I had to get up for the morning Mass (it was my weekend to do the 8:30 a.m. Mass).  After Mass, I got a lot of office work done.  Fr. Jordan and I went out to lunch at 11:30 a.m. and when I came home, I dropped him off at the house and then turned around and went to visit my aunt.

After seeing my aunt, I came back to the parish in time for afternoon confessions.  After confessions, I thought I would have a lazy evening to make up for the night before.  That was before I remembered that I had our parish festival committee appreciation dinner party to attend.  I went and said hello to everybody who attended, thanking them for their help in making this year’s festival a success.  The party began at 6:30 p.m.  Around 8:00 p.m., I left to go to the rectory.  But first, I had to stop by the drug store to pick up a prescription and then go to the gas station because I was almost out of gas.  I got home and hit the sack.

This morning, I had the 10:00 a.m. and 12:00 Noon Masses.  Afterward, I went out to lunch and then came back to the rectory to rest.  Instead, I got on my computer and got some additional office work done.  So, now, I am ready to call it a night.  I am still tired and have to get up really early for the 6:30 a.m. Mass.  I do not know where the weekend went.  It’s Sunday night and I have to begin all over again tomorrow morning.

Make it stop!  🙂
