I might use itinerary #2 today, if you don't mind. However, we do have 1:00 church now which helps.

I feel better that at least I THOUGHT about taking the kids to church today. As it turned out, it was difficult enough to keep myself together at HOME.

Oh, well, kindergarten starts again tomorrow, so I am certain I can make it though until Harmony's return on Wednesday (however, keep in your prayers, everyone!).

Great blog entry! You had me scared there for a moment...reading Itinerary #1...I thought I had some real repenting to do. (Well, I guess I always do!) Thanks for making me smile this early in the AM, Hope.
