You will know that things were unusual this weekend when I tell you I haven't been at this computer since Friday sometime. Oy.
I did have the most wonderful, wonderful dinner with Mompriest Friday night. She is as perfectly delightful in person as in bloglife and more. I felt as though I'd known her forever. Blind luck, for me to be the one close to the conference and the big airport, which is why I got to meet her.
We left the giant airport (DFW airport is bigger than the island of Manhattan, according to its website) and went to a Mexican restaurant, had a lovely dinner and conversation.
Saturday we had a Requiem Mass for Gladys Maynard, a lovely lady in our parish and the wife of one of our choir members. Jud has been an organist, professor of organ, and musician all his life, and we have been blessed to have him in the choir. Gladys has been ill for a long time, but it is always hard to say goodbye.
Afterward we had a reception hosted by the choir, and then I came home and fell out...my painful back of last week had really caught up with me.
Sunday we had confirmation of 6 kids! 2 more went through the preparation but were unable to participate (one was actually graduating from the local high school right at that time!) Very exciting, and Bishop Sam Hulsey (retired, of Diocese of NW Texas) was there. I was Vestry of the day...I have to find some better shoes for that duty. By the end of the church day my dogs were howling and the back again, too. I went to lunch with some friends for brainstorming and came home and fell out again.
Ken has been VERY nice with all the backrubs and such! He gets an A++. Off to masseuse and doctors again today...
