Another weekend without Ryan
Mom and Dad came to visit this weekend. They missed Ryan by a few hours because Ryan is in South Carolina presently to continue his coverage of the demise of Razorback hoops. (Seriously, this has circled past humorous, sad, embarrassing, suicidal and apathetic and now it's back to humorous. The circle will continue.)
Somehow this weekend has turned into my parents fixing everything that is wrong with our house — which believe me is a lot. So far the garage light has been fixed, the trees have been trimmed and my mom is about halfway through fixing our screen door. (Right now the screen door is on the floor of our kitchen, screenless.) I try to help, but I'm pretty hopeless — which is why we got into this situation to begin with. Our ladder has gotten the most use it has since we bought it two years ago.
Somehow I think I ended up being the most tired of the bunch. Go figure.
Later today I am solo again for Religious School and we're continuing our marriage unit. I've spent the last hour reviewing the curriculum and then my wedding video to use for class. I'm sure they'll be bored to tears, but without a copy of Fiddler on the Roof handy, this is the best I can do.
Hopefully this will be the last time I have to do it on my own, because really these are supposed to be Ryan's students and I think they like him much better. Really I should just have him do the class tomorrow via speakerphone.
