Things have been kind of crazy lately. Just really busy. Like stuff every night of the week and full weekends.
I don't even remember what I did 2 weekends ago, but I know it was jam-packed.
Some of the things I have been busy with have been so much fun. Last weekend, I spent Saturday as a judge for the Keizer Junior Miss/Distinguished Young Women Program. I had SO MUCH FUN! It is stressful being a judge. And even though I was a judge, I was really proud of those girls. I think because I have been a contestant, I know how terrifying the process can feel. The fact that they all made it through is awesome. We also got to do a mock-interview with Oregon's Distinguished Young Woman and see her talent before she heads to Nationals. It was SO GOOD!! What an awesome talent! I am excited to see how she does at Nationals.
I hope I get asked to be a judge again or to help out in another capacity. I even signed Joanna up to do it in the future. Joanna was Klamath Fall's Junior Miss (that's how we met).
Then I spent Sunday helping Tegan with her wedding invitiations. They look great! And we got so much done. I felt like it was a very productive day. I also got several ideas for her bridal shower.
So this week I have been trying to finish a few projects at home and finish up something at work while preparing for Phil's parents to come for a visit this weekend.
Throw in some complications of working with your family.
And a messy house.
I am trying to not stress out.
But through all of it, I kind of have an overwhelming sense of calm. And I swear it isn't from drinking. :)
I just feel like things are going to work out. I was fairly upset after a conversation with my uncle at work yesterday went south (aka he started yelling at me) but I didn't stomp off. I didn't slam doors. I didn't make a big deal out of it. I left the room and went back to work. I got stuff done. And I was able to do that because I just knew things were going to work out.
And with Phil's parents visiting (something that hasn't gone so well in the past), I feel like it will be fine. Challenging, I am sure though. It is hard for me to get passed past hurts and wrong-doings. But I am going to give it my best shot.
And it will be fine. I just need to get my house cleaned.
Love, Mrs. Janney
