Day 1 :
Yay! Up early to curl hair. 2 cups of coffee. Got to church early. Adrenalin pumping. All hyped up.
No need for nap.
Figured its not worth the effort to curl my hair so I straighten it and cake it with hair spray to fight off the Florida humidity. Was good with one cup of coffee.
No need for nap
My excitement energy is wearing off. I quickly get ready so I can fix a cup of coffee. I contemplate/attempt taking a nap behind stage before the morning extravaganza.
Took a nap afterwards while waiting for Steve to pick me up for a trip to run some errands. He woke me up and I was tired the rest of the day.
Getting out of bed is not very easy. I didnt finished my coffee cause i was too tired/sickfeeling. Arrived at church. Tried to memorize lines. Thankful for adrenalin that kicked in when it was show time.
I took 2 naps that afternoon
The only thing motivating me to get out of bed is that thought that it is the last day and I get to come home in 5 hours and sleep.
Which I did for a whole hour.
This isn't to say I didnt enjoy my week. I truly felt blessed by what I got to do and my interactions with the kids.
But anyone who works in children's ministry, it is very tiring.
Tiring but rewarding.
