Weekend Wrap and Other Less Important Stuff

Have you heard the Carrie Underwood song Temporary Home? Well, since Thursday, I have heard this song everytime I have turned on my radio in my car. I have to say that there have been a couple of times when I haven't turned it on because I did not want to hear it again. Here is the last stanza and the chorus:
Old man, hospital bed The room is filled with people he loves And he whispers don't cry for me I'll see you all someday He looks up and says "I can see God's face." "This is my temporary Home It's not where I belong Windows and rooms that I'm passin' through This was just a stop,on the way to where I'm going I'm not afraid because I know this was My temporary home." This is our temporary home.
Of course it makes me think of Mom and then it makes me cry. It can be hard to drive when your eyes are leaking. Tonight I had one of those moments that just really kick you in the gut. If you want to read about it, go here. It has made me sad this evening.
On the lighter side, I got to eat lunch with my Dad's mom twice this week. She only lives about an hour away but I don't get to see her often. Wednesday when I subbed at my Dad's school she and my Dad's brother came to see us and brought us lunch. Lucky for me I had the same lunch/conference as Dad and got to spend some time with them. Then Friday she was back in town and called me to see if I wanted to meet her. I did and we had an enjoyable afternoon. She and my Mom used to meet about once every couple of months and eat lunch and then go shopping. I think Grandmom had been missing that so we did the same thing.
This weekend the traffic was crazy bad. It was parents weekend and I think that all 40,000 + students had both of their parents in town. Thank heavens that is over, the parents are gone and we are closing in on summer when the students will also be gone.
Last week I subbed in a 4th grade science class and then junior high choir. The boys choir told their teacher that I was mean. . . . .made me happy! That was the only class we actually sang in. I loved it. I don't really miss much from school but I do miss choir. I love, love, love to sing. As a matter of fact my whole family loves to sing. Many times on vacation, we would sing all the way to Colorado and back. We could even sing 4 part harmony. Anyway, back to subbing. So far this week all I have scheduled is 1/2 a day in choir but I hope to find more.
Well, I guess I had better go. I didn't get a nap today and I always get to bed late on Saturday night and have to get up early on Sunday. Especially this month because Mr. G and I are in charge of setting up everything for church. So, I will wish you all good night and sweet dreams.

Oh goodness - some of those songs on the radio can be gut-wrenching...and then I wonder, Why do I leave them on and not turn the radio off?? But I do. Sometimes a good cry feels good and I always need to be alone to guess the car is good for me! Who knows???

Hope you get some more classes - and maybe even close to your grandmom special!
