Yes, I'll take some cheese with my whine.......

So, I've been trying to refrain from complaining about my church calling. The Sunday before last was pretty bad, and today wasn't any better. I am trying SO hard to be helpful and not have a stinky attitude. I even take a break during the senior primary sharing time and go have a snack in the foyer and just breathe or read or just let go of my frustration. But I just don't know how long this is going to work!!! I DON'T want to be primary president, especially because I move in six months, and they should have someone that will be there for much longer. Sigh. I'll have to figure out something else that will help me. I mean, I just play the piano. I have no meetings, no other responsibility other than playing the piano.

I'm thinking that today was extra bad because Andrew was kind of stinky during sacrament meeting. He made a few bad choices, I took the color wonder marker from him and he proceeded to punch me. Then, walking him out to the foyer, he tries to bite my hand. Oh well. Next Sunday will hopefully be better. And we won't sit right next to his and Lucy's friends. Because then all we hear the whole time is how they want to sit together. OK, I'm done whining. I feel better now. Thanks for listening....

Edited: Ok, want to clarify that I am NOT the new president. Just saying that I do not want that calling because I know what goes into it. And because I find that when I'm complaining about someone else in a calling, I get that calling. So, still the primary pianist, NOT the president. Our bishopric isn't that on top of things.....

Sunday's can be the hardest days of the week. Today I spent the better part of sacrament meeting in a classroom with my daughter discussing why it's best if other people don't see our panties (read: BE STILL DURING THE SERVICE.)

what? You are going to be the new primary president? Sorry about that :) Maybe if you stopped complaining so much you wouldn't get punished with a president calling! lol You'll do great. Now, get me some RELIABLE people in NURSERY!

Jen - I disagree. I think it's always good to let others see our panties. :)

TJ - I am going to send you some American cheese to go with your whine. I know you'll love it!

No doubt the issues with Andrew kicked off the day in the wrong way. It's just too bad it was followed up with a troublesome primary.
