My husband and I have been invited to a Halloween costume party. We are neither one into dressing up in costumes, especially if they are uncomfortable. I went to Walmart to look at what they had to offer, which by yesterday, was very little. There was one Dorothy from Wizard of Oz that would have maybe fit me and some kind of Dracula thing that would have maybe fit my husband.
So, I was walking through the men's section on my way to the cards' section, when I saw the sweat shirts. Don't ask me what made me think of this, but a light bulb moment occurred. Not that this is that bright of a light bulb, but it is cheap, and it works.
He could go as "NIGHT" and I could go as "DAY".
Here's what I made. I ironed double sided iron on adhesive to fabric, cut out stars, a moon, clouds, and a sun. Then I ironed them on the shirts. This took about 15 minutes!!! Yea! No more thinking about what to wear.
BTW, my preacher just called. He has been pondering the things that were said at our meeting on Sunday. He is upset about the lack of communication that is going on in the church. He realized that my feelings had been hurt. We have our youth activity night and committee meetings tonight. He wanted to get all the committee chairpersons together, with me and with him to discuss this. I said, "No." I think it is too short of a notice, because the committee members will be there wanting to have their meetings so they can go home and they wouldn't want to wait on their chairs to be in another meeting. Anyway, I have decided that I'm going to discuss this with the session, which is made up of the committee chairpersons, at their next meeting. This isn't until the week after next. It will give me time to think through exactly how I feel and what I want to say. I don't want to cause a big "stink" anyway. One of the dad's who is really a co-director this year of the youth night, is planning to talk to the kids and parents tonight anyway, and ask for suggestions, etc...... if they aren't happy with the way things are going. I don't plan to be in the room when he does this. I think perhaps I have put my feelings on my sleeve and I need to back off, look at things more objectively, and get over myself.
If you are a praying sort of person, please say a prayer for one of my cousins who is having very serious health issues. Thanks.
