Sunday and Another Huge Day

I did not sleep well last night. I was concerned about the sermon I am giving today.  I woke up at 1:00. Finally at 2:30, after tossing and turning for an hour and a half, I got up and took a Zyrtec. Then I slept until 6:00 AM.

After I got up and made the bed and got myself ready for the day, I had my breakfast and fed Missy and made the coffee cake for the Church School class. Then I went out to water my flowers. I took Missy too. When I went around to the east side to water, she came too and lay in the grass and enjoyed the sunshine. When I was ready to come in, she would not come in. I tried everything I knew including the broom (as a last resort). That didn't work either. Finally, I carefully picked her up. She did her best to bite me but I managed to evade her teeth and opened the door and tossed her into the dining room. I don't know what I am going to do with that cat. She is getting more and more unmanageable when I let her outside.

I got the coffeecake iced and everything ready for the service today. My neighbors next door intend to come. That makes me a little nervous since I know I have a pretty liberal theology. I am happy they want to do that though.

This afternoon I will do the congregation's newsletters and get them sent out. Then I will make my Apple Brown Betty for this evening and get the dishes set out for that.  At this point, I have ten coming and ten is all I have room and seating for in my small living room.  Howard and Judy are in California and I don't know about Joyce. I haven't heard from her. 

Tomorrow at 2:30, I have my appointment with Dr. Webb. I will do to exercise class and fix lunch here as usual. I also will have to bake my cake. Then Tuesday at 11:00, I have an appointment with Dr. Peasher. We will deliver our cakes and then I will take Bob with me to that appointment and we will eat down there afterward.

Busy, busy, busy. 

More later...

The sermon went fine and the neighbors came too. They say they will be back next Sunday. We are having a Bar B Q dinner on Sunday after church. 

I got the newsletters finished and ready for the mail.  Then I made up the Apple Brown Betty. By then I needed to rest again.  The group started coming at 7:00. I went to pick up Gary and Bob stayed here and welcomed everyone in.

The meeting went well but ran late as we waited for John and Wendy and Linda who never showed up.  We usually are finished by 9:00. It was almost 10:00 when everyone left and I took Gary home.

I took my bath and Missy and I went right to bed.

Some unsolicited advice from your son who has inherited your sleeping disorder! Lol "leave the cat outside if it doesn't want to come in" " let the cat be a cat" when it gets hot and tired it will come to the door.
In conclusion I think I might be my mother's son (no sleep, worries about stuff I have no control over, stresses over my health, and annoyed by others too easily. Good news? Healthy and loved especially by my wife. In your case those closest to you "family"

You are so right, Scott. But the neighborhood has four "stray" cats wandering around looking for food or a fight. She is 14 years old and no match for any of them. Right after I moved in here, I let her out by herself and she was attacked by a huge yellow stray cat. She spent 10 days in the hospital and was very sick since she developed a large cyst on her back and two pierced paws that bled profusely. I have only taken her out with me ever since.
