It's Friday again!

YAY! We didn't get a Friday update last week because the woman who sends them was out on a medical leave. But as far as I'm aware she's back now and I'm definitely expecting an update today. It's only 9:15 here at the moment and the updates don't come until the afternoon though, so I've got a while to wait. I'll keep you posted!

So what I have to talk about today is change. I feel like there are big changes brewing in our family right now. For my LDS friends, last week I was called to be the Relief Society Secretary. Translated for my non-LDS friends, I've been asked to volunteer as the Secretary for a church womens organization. I'm excited to do it and I think it's going to be fun, but at the moment it's a little overwhelming. The woman that I'm replacing came over a few days ago with a big cardboard box full of things to hand over to me. When someone comes to your house and hands you a cardboard box full of binders and paper and information, you know you're going to be busy for a while. :)

It will be good and once I get the hang of it I'm actually really going to enjoy it. But the next month is going to be a little stressful I think, trying to get it all figured out. I've got a lot to learn.

The other change is something I can't really discuss at the moment, and I hate not being able to discuss something! I'm an open book and I don't hold things back very well. There's something brewing at the moment around here. It doesn't involve the adoption and it's not a bad thing, it's just a change.

But knowing that I've got the secretary job to figure out this month, we've got another change going on and this may be our referral month, it's a busy time around here and my brain is working on overtime to process it! I tend not to handle change very well, so I'm feeling a little overwhelmed. Not necesarily in a bad way because none of it is bad change, I just see our lives charging forward so fast right now and sometimes I just want to put the brakes on and tell it to slow down while I process it.

Life is all about change though, I guess. I tend to resist change at first, even if it's a good change, but I eventally adapt. I like my comfort zone. Stepping out of that always throws me for a loop a little.

Anyway, life is moving forward here. Hopefully that will include a referral in the very near future. If our lives are all about change right now, we might as well throw the referral into the mix! Bring it on!

Congrats on your new calling. I'm the RS sec in our ward too. I've been doing it since Nov. You're right, at first it is so over whelming, but once you get everything together and figured out it slows down a lot. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.

Hope the morning passes quickly and the update is sent soon!
