Saturday was a real day off. I didn't have to work, I didn't check work email, I didn't have any obligations. It was heavenly.
Jeremy had to work, so I even had the house to myself for the afternoon. I did a little painting, a little reading, watched a romantic comedy -- yes, heavenly.
I did go to church Saturday night, though. Erin was interested in checking out Flatirons, so we went to the 5pm service. I'm glad we did -- I needed church after what happened on Friday in CT. I needed that gathering of holy spirit stirring around me. The pastor touched on the tragedy, led us in a really nice prayer, and then went on with his pre-planned sermon, effectively getting our minds off of it. Perfect.
Sunday Jeremy and I met some friends at Fox & Hound for lunch and to watch the game(s). Sad to say, we haven't done something like that in ages. Jeremy and I aren't really into watching sports, but it was a great excuse to get out of the house, splurge on greasy food and enjoy the company of some great people.
After lunch, I dropped Jeremy off at home and went on my "blind date." Heehee. At the women's ministry Christmas party a couple of weeks ago, Flatirons Church had those of us that were interested put our names and locations on pieces of paper that they gathered at the end. Then they matched us up with other ladies around where we lived, so we could have the opportunity to connect with other church members. So today I met with three ladies who live here in Northglenn. It was really nice! We're planning on meeting for another coffee date after the holidays.
Even having to do some Christmas shopping this afternoon, this was seriously the most relaxing weekend I've had in ages. Very much needed.
