This has been an exhausting day at work. I got up early after a really good night sleep. Leslie, my daughter, called me this morning to say the son of one of our members was murdered this past weekend over at Columbus, Kansas. The memorial service will be Saturday at our church. The killers have been arrested. Leslie called one of our other ministers to do the service because both she and I are involved in Scott and Ginger's marriage service on Saturday. That was a shock...needless to say.
I fixed the leftover bar b q I brought home from the birthday bask Saturday for our lunch today and served it on buns with the leftover beans. Then I send what was left home with Bob with the rotisserie chicken I brought home. That will give him something to eat while I have my company. My eldest son and his wife will be here with me late Thursday evening. The others will be at Leslie's the same evening.
Then I went on to work. Paula, the high school girl who volunteered for an hour every afternoon graduated Saturday so she was not there to help. And since the seniors are out we had a jillion DVDs to be put away and the boxes filed. I worked from 12:45 until 4:10 on that and then filed for Sarah.
When I got home I was very tired. Bob had met the plumber at my apartment this afternoon and let him in to replace the garbage disposal that had died last week.
Before I even sat down, I mixed up my cake for the First Christian Church in Independence. I got it baked and after it cooled I iced it. Then I called Phyllis and Karan to remind them about the cakes. They will bring one over in the morning and Bob will come over to pick them up and take them to Independence.
We were just discussing my awful day when his daughter called. She had had to go back to the emergency room again and needed a ride home. Bob and I took her home and found that she had locked herself out of her place. She called her daughter, who shares an apartment in Independence with some friends and she drove out and let her mother in. Bob and I did not think she should be alone under the circumstances and the daughter did not want to stay so I brought her home with me. She has her surgery tomorrow and will need to come back her at least until Thursday. Immediately after the surgery she should not be alone. It's something else. Her dad will come over to stay with her while I am at work.
I will fix chicken, mashed potatoes and gravy, green beans and Bob will bring a salad for tomorrow's lunch. Luckily I thawed plenty of chicken. I also made cupcakes yesterday so we will have one for dessert.
Then afterward I will go to work.
