The past couple days.

I should probably put this in list form, but since it’s only 3 things, I’m not going to do that, because it would be like a list of 3 things with 3 long paragraphs. Our church service schedule changed on Sunday. We now have a 9:00 service, and a 10:30 service. This means that I teach Sunday school during the 9:00 service, and stay for the 10:30 service. This makes for a long day at church on Sundays! For some reason, I thought the 9:00 service ended at 10:30, but it ends at 10, which is weird because it’s a shorter service. They used to do this on Saturday nights, but not a lot of people came during that time, so they changed it to the 9:00 AM service.
I had my last day of Prayer Seeker’s Café yesterday. When I made the announcement that I was leaving on the 5th, the director’s wife didn’t seem like she was very happy with me, and I wasn’t sure if she understood that I was actually going to leave. Things went well there yesterday, in fact she told me that she appreciated the way I announced that I was leaving in front of the group, instead of doing what someone had done the week before, brought a bundle of cookies, took her husband aside, and told him he was leaving. I was actually going to take the director’s wife aside and tell her, but I decided that in the interest of transparency, I would just tell everyone. She told me that I was brave for doing that, honestly, I was more afraid of the reaction I would get than the act of announcing I was leaving, but it was one of those things that had to be done publicly, or the lessons of the past 4 years would come to nothing.
When I went out of town for my doctor’s appointment, not only did we stop at Sees candy, but we also stopped at this place called Euphoria Chocolate Company. I got various things, but one of the things I got were 2 chocolate covered marshmallows, when I ate both of them, I absolutely had to have more of those things, because they were epic! I went to their site on Wednesday or Thursday night to see if they sold them, and I was annoyed that they didn’t. I called them on Friday to ask why, in fact, they didn’t sell any of their chocolate covered items on their site. They told me that they don’t like to sell singles, (and that’s how they sell them.) I ended up placing an order for just under a pound of chocolate covered marshmallows, because that’s what they had. I wasn’t sure exactly how to order them, so I was trying to do it by weight, and a pound makes either 24 or 25, and they had 23 milk chocolate covered marshmallows. They said they ship priority mail, and I was like well… hmm, that’s a bit of a problem, because I don’t want the package to get left at the post office and my caregiver and I would have to go and pick it up. I asked if they could do UPS. I had to talk to their shipping manager yesterday, but yeah, they can do UPS., and because it’s only an hour and 15 minutes away from here, UPS 3-day select well… let’s just say only took about a day!
