Weekend stuff

Saturday we had another chess tournament. A won three games out of five, which was pretty good, since there was very tough competition. I was really proud that after being upset about losing the third game, he pulled himself together and won the last two.

Saturday night B and I went out to dinner with the Sunday School class. It was a wine and dine; four courses with a wine for each one. It was a lot of fun, and the wine was good. Our class is so funny and not too uptight at all.

Today I cried during church when the the congregation sang "And God will lift you up on eagle's wings" I couldn't help thinking about W.
I started a grief recovery class tonight, given by our church. One of my assignments for the week is to start a journal. They had journals for everyone, but since I was one of the last to show up, I didn't get one because they had run out. They are supposed to bring me one next week, so I guess I am off the hook for this week!

We were supposed to write about our feelings after the first session. It was surprisingly difficult for me, and I cried a lot more than I thought I would. The other women in the class had very sad stories of course, and I guess that really causes one to dwell on things. This will be a lot harder than I thought.

Finally, I finished my letter on behalf of the AED fundraising effort at our school district. I have included it behind a cut for anyone who would like to comment. Collapse )
