The retreat.was.awesome. somewhere between 170-180 people came. The speaker was GREAT. The music was fabulous. The kids were energized and participated well. The setting was beautiful. It was a wonderful time.

Can I use any more superlatives?

It was insanely busy for me, but it was loads of fun. And then I came home and I was very very very tired. So naturally I slept a couple of hours, woke up, ate, and tried to stay awake until a decent hour by watching Buffy. For the first time in over two years, I watched the episodes where Buffy's mom dies (and the aftermath). I survived. It was even kind of good--I was reminded what great work those episodes were, and also learned that I can do it--no need for dread.

But today I am tired, very tired. Work productivity is low, to say the least. And tomorrow is a Presbytery meeting. (joy of joys)

Okay, on to the "stuff I have to do before tomorrow" list!

  1. I think "The Body" is not just one of the best Buffy episodes but one of the best things anyone has ever done on television.

    Anya's "fruit punch" speech makes me cry every time I hear it. And I'm right there with Xander when he puts his fist through the wall.

    I think it's good not just for those who have lost a parent (which I have), but for anyone who has lost someone.
