What is your normal Sunday like? Weekday? Saturday? What is your favorite chore? Your worst?
Sunday, Sunday School at 9:45 am.(Teaching) then after that church. Then sometimes church at the local nursing home at 2 pm. Then evening service at 6 pm. Not counting the countless other chores I do at the church. Then there is my work at home. And my school work, then Back to school on Monday. My favorite "chore" (which isn't a chore) is to teach sunday school. My least favorite, is to do homework.
What is your normal Sunday like? Weekday? Saturday? What is your favorite chore? Your worst?
Sunday I get up and get ready for church. Sometimes I go an hour early to practice piano, but I'm always (unless Provodentialy hindered!) at church by 9:30. Sunday school is at 10, and preaching starts at eleven. After that I either leave with another family for lunch or my family goes out to eat. We get home by three, and I do any final practice with the song I'm singing that night. I leave for church at four and open the church, adjust thermostats, fix lighting, unlock doors...you get the idea, and play piano for an hour. Church starts at five. After service the choir practices, then the youth meets. Sometimes the our quartet practices. Then I straighten up and lock up, unless someone else is still there.
Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays are the same. School at eight, so I get there at around seven thirty. School is over at three thirty and I go to the Children's Home. I'm there untill eight.
Wenesdays theres school and then I go straight home and get ready for church which starts at seven.
Saturdays I do my cleaning at the house, do any shopping I need to get done etc. I go to the church at 11 am to clean. That consists of toilet scrubbing, mopping, mirror cleaning, vaccuming, sweeping, emtying trash, straightening, and if the fellowship hall is going to be used the next day I do all of the above in there. Visitation is at twelve, so if I finish my cleaning before then I play the organ untill everyone gets there. After visitation I go home, clean myself up, take my car to the nursing home and leave it. My grandparets pick me up and we drive to Shelby NC (twenty-ish minutes away) to the same place we've been eating at since my daddy was a kid. The Shelby Fish Camp. LOL, we always order the same thing, and always arrive at the same time, so they usualy go ahead and start cooking ours before we even get there! Then we fly back to Gaffney intime for the nursing home service that our church and another IFB church near us do together. Usualy it's me, my friend Jason from our church, and Chris and Christie from Victory Baptist, and Christie's brother Steven, also from Victory. The guys preach, Christie and I rotate on the piano, and Steven also plays his guitar. Its one of my favorite times of the week. We always have a good time in the Lord. Then it's back home for me (Chris, Christie, and Steven live beside me so we form a procession through town all the way back home, lol!) And that's about it. Sometimes after I get home I go to my dad's for supper or with some church friends. IF not, I pull out some semons on tape/CD. That's my week. Hectic, tiring, confusing...but I love it. I love staying busy all the time.
Favorite chore? All of it. I love cleaning. The only thing I kinda don't like is emtying the big trashcans at church after their full. I have a hard time lifting them, and the container outside is so awkward I have to pick up the trashcan, get it on my shoulders and lean over to empty it. If it's really full sometimes I lose my balance lifting it, and if I don't catch myslef real quick I end up sprawled in the church yard covered in trash.....although I suppose I'd be a funny sight.
I would definately laugh if I saw that. I am picturing it right now, yeah definately laughing, my pastor told certain two young men in our church that if a young lady without a husband signed up for "key to sucess"(church cleaning) it was their duty to empty the trash once I got it in the supply closet. He said young lady generally but I am the only young lady that signs up so... And my pastor saw me one day trying to lift it and saw that I really was stuggling, but believe me I did it alright. Then he goes and does that, Like I'm an invalid or something annauncing it right from the pulpit. "Are there any young men ut there that would be willing to help with church trash disposal when a single young lady is doing "key to success?" And since there was only two young men at church that night they didn't even raise their hands, "Thanks guys" I hear pastor say. And that was that.
LOL, well you'd have loved watching me the other week. We couldn't have a normal mop and bucket. Oh no! We have to have the big institutional sized mop and mop ringer. I was emptying it the other Saturday and it was full.....and the water was dirty...very dirty. I have to lift the ringer out of the rolling mop bucket before I can turn the bucket over. Well I'm not exactly the most gracefull of women, so I tripped while pulling out the ringer...and fell over the mop bucket. Since it has weels, it slid out from under me and the water splashed all over me. OHHHHHHH yuck! I'm just glad no one but me and the Lord wittnessed that one!
i go to the church about 9:30 and sunday school starts at 10. I'm still in the high school class but i am thinking about taking over the kindergarten class in the of july. but then we go over to the atitorium and i go up to the choir loft. and after that we go down to our seats and depending on the sunday i might have pre-school childrens church or maybe k-3rd grade childrens church. then afterwards i usually ride the church van. but some times i'll go over to my friend stephanies house. then at 4:30 i'm back up at the church for our youth girls singing practice and then at 5 i have adult choir practice and then church at 6 then after church youth choir practice. then we some times stay after that and play basketball or volleyball or go to Braums or Dairy Queen.
What is Braums?? I have never heard of that, they must not have it in Missouri.
Should i really post here? i mean look at that. Everyone that has posted so far on this thread is a girl. but if you ask me what i do it is either play playstation, read, and play sports. I run most mornings though.
On Sundays church starts at 11 (Sunday school is in the evening) and ends at twelve. the afternoons are spenting doing pretty mucgh nothing. and in the evenings we do church of course.
My favorite chore would be vacuuming and my least favorite definitley cleaning the bathroom!!!! I hate that job.
Hey, Zeke, thanks for posting. lol Howz it been going for you?
Sundays services start at 8:30 here. From 8:30 to about 9:30 in Mex then we take everyone home and get back to AZ by 10 (or a little late). Church in AZ is from about 10 to 12:30 and then we usually go out to eat or cook at the church. After lunch we head over to the nursing home and from the nursing home we head straight to Mex for services from about 4 to 5:30 and then to church in AZ from 6 to about 6:30 or 7. Sundays here are non-stop, it's great to be able to totally give the 1st day to Him!
Weekdays? hmm... Schoolwork, practice, chores, birds, I give lessons on Wed, Thurs, and Fridays, phone calls , and whatever else might happen to be going on, i.e. concerts, fiddle contests, friends that we haven't seen in forever coming down , b-ball games, ect.
Oh, BTW, I took my birds a mile away on Sat and they came home in 45 secs!!! That is faster than 60mph!! Isn't that cool?! Sorry, I just thought I would throw that in.
Saturdays is when I usually have my lesson and other than that it is pretty much like my weekday. All in all I have a busy life with just normal stuff.
Oh yeah, my favorite chore would be taking care of my birds- though it isn't really a chore for me b/c it is a time that I can get away from everything else for a while. My worst would be, I dunno, maybe washing dishes b/c they take the longest and I can't practice afterwards b/c it messes up my hands. (takes all the oils out of them or whatever)
BEFORE JESUS. AFTER JESUS.
Braums is kinda like fast food type if restaurant but they mainly have ice cream but they have to full menu like at McDondalds or some where like that.
Things ain't goin' too bad Alice. I actually haven't been on here in a while so i had a lottle catching up to do.
You people have much busier lives than i do. Things go soooo sloooowwwwww here.
Hey, Zeke! If you wanna be busy then you can make it that way. I used to always be bored- lol but not any more!
I guess things will start to pick up now that i am will be going back to America next year. I will be working here after i get back so i guess it will begin to get busier. But until then i guess i will have to suffer.
What are you coming back for? How long? You going to Alabama? Suffer? Enjoy it while you can!
I will be going there early next spring and be staying until early summer.
We are going so that Caleb can get settled into college and just to see the people back there. I haven't seen most of them in 5 or 6 years.
We are just going to Alabama. My parents are visiting some churches out of state but i will be staying there even when they go.
Suffer? yeah right...
Wow. 5 or 6 years? You must be excited!
yep, yep. Last time i was there i didn't even go to Alabam but had to stay in North Carolina because we went there for my brother's wedding and we were only going for like a week so we didn't have enough time to go to Alabama.
