Yes, you may weep with me, agony and the ecstasy of church callings is upon me. Today I got asked to teach early morning seminary (for those of you unfamiliar with this it means I will be teaching the New Testament to high schoolers every morning at 6 am for my church). This is of course one of the most beloved, and most feared callings (especially for those of us who don't love jumping out of bed early in the morning, in fact I get sick to my stomach if I get up too early). Seriously, I think early morning seminary was the reason I skipped a grade in high school, anything to avoid one more year of 5:45 class!
It is beloved, because it really is a great experience. Feared, because it is intense and definitely cuts into the sleep factor (especially for a mom with 3 little kids who has a baby still getting up 3x a night!) So yes my love affair with the pillow will be ending. This will likely cramp my blogging style a bit, as I will be prepping lessons or trying to catch extra hours to make up for my morning loss, but do not leave me in my hour of need! I have to go tell my neighbors not be scared of the suspicious activity occurring at my house at this early hour.
