Linking up with the lovely Jen again this week...check out her website for other fellow quick taker's...
Do you ever have one of those days were you feel like you have gotten nothing accomplished?? Wednesday was that day for me this week. In July I'm going to my third World Youth Day in Rio. Crazy exciting and slightly stressful at times. I spent most of the afternoon between calling our travel agency helping us with travel plans and the Brazilian consulate in Chicago trying to clarify exactly what documentation we need to obtain our visa's for Rio. Fun times as the Group leader!
I'm very thankful our group consists of a total of 6 people. And I'm really excited because my Dad is also coming as our male chaperone. SO excited to share this experience with him, especially since its his first trip out of the States. I know some Youth Ministers who have taken over 30 people to WYD's past...I admire them for that, but don't think you could pay me to do that! Excited to celebrate with 2 million Catholics from all over the world...oh and yeah, a new Pope!?!? I think so:)
I don't even know where I came across this one, but it popped up on my Facebook feed yesterday afternoon. If you have never been to the Sistine Chapel (heck even if you have!) you should take a
a look at this website: Its the site of the conclave. Use your mouse for the tour. Move around and zoom in and out. Sure its not as good as seeing it in person, but a good second option!
2 awesome things happened at the workshop.
1. I met this DRE who has workshops and trains folks in ministry how to create their own websites. but good websites. I'm so stoked to head to her workshop in May especially since lately I cringe when I look at our Youth Ministry section on the parish website...its been on my mind for awhile to do something about, and this lovely lady was like an answer to prayer! score.
2. For closing prayer at the workshop, we watched this video....really enjoyed it! Thinking something to maybe show to teens...they also have a website at www.anygivensundayproject.com
Jim had two big papers due this week for school. He also made it two back to back all nighter's. Needless to say, he is one tired bear. On the agenda this weekend is some major sleeping/relaxing for Jimbo and I'm starting to write my paper for my Trinity/Christology class and puttering around the apartment.
I'm actually getting a makeover done on my blog!!! I have been using these free templates for a bit, but there is only it seems so much you can do with it. I'm looking forward to seeing what Shannon comes up with...if you're looking for design idea's, take a look at her website. Thanks Erika for recommending her to me!
Okay. This one is a question. My friend Mary posted last week in her quick takes on how to disable the security thingy that makes you prove you're not a robot. Sounds great to me, but how do I actually do that??? Any of you know how to dismantle it?? Thank yee kindly :)
Bragging alert below! Jim is really handy with fixing stuff around home. Earlier this week, one of the toilet's got clogged. Apparently if you fill up both of the bathtubs at the same exact time, and then empty at the same time while flushing at the same time it does something to the pipes, or something that stops a clogged toilet from overflowing. Never knew that. This husband is handy to have around it looks like ;-)
