    OK - for some reason, VBS is kicking my butt this year! I'm in charge of the kitchen - refreshments for 450 kids and 150 workers plus whatever number of parents that wish to stay for a cup of coffee and some snacks.

    This year our numbers are WAY up so I had to hit Costco again today to restock what we're low on (this is just Tuesday! I usually don't have to fine tune our stuff until Wednesday or Thursday.) I also have a woman in my department who signs up each year and honestly cannot go into any other department (with the kids) so I get to have her with me. She's very high needs, demanding, bossy and loud - and she really got on my last nerve today. I didn't blow up at her but I finally had to walk out and get a cup of coffee myself and sit outside for a few minutes. Fortunately, she's not here the next two days so I just have one more day with her.

    I was so frazzled today that after dealing with an injury (I'm also the first aid person), I actually threw out my first aid kit! I didn't realize until the next child came in and needed a band-aid and one of the workers told me I threw out the box - she though it was empty so didn't say anything!! I just restocked it last night! OY!!

    So if you could pray for strength and endurance for all of our VBS staff and for extra grace for those of us who have to deal with the difficult, it would be greatly appreciated.

    I came home from VBS today and slept for 3 hours! And I NEVER nap! LOL
