Next, we were off to Office Max! My son's binders were falling apart and he wanted new binders and a messenger bag to carry them in. We found a great binder at Office Max that zips closed, has two separate binder rings and dividers with pencil & calculate, etc... storage. It also has a strap on it, so it can be carried much like a messenger bag. He's happy and I'm happy we didn't have to search and search for "just the right messenger bag" that he wanted.
And finally, I worked A LITTLE BIT, on a project that I feel completely overwhelmed by. We are forming an "in-betweeners" group at church. No - that's not right. An in-betweeners group has already existed for some time but has never really "taken off". There seems to be quite a bit of interest in it lately, so we have decided a "purpose" for the group other than a bunch of people of the same "middle-age", hanging out, getting to know each other and having fun. We are going to be the group to "fill needs". We will have both "in-church" and "out-reach". This will include, the elderly who need their driveway shoveled. The hospital bound, who just needs a visit, someone recovery from illness and needs meals delivered, and of course, the ones hit with financial hardship.
Well.... I decided I'd be a part of the committee and they have asked me to decorate the "board" in the church, so that everyone is aware of us, what we do and they will know who to come to (and some sort of "box", too, for anonymity).
This board is 8 FEET x 4 FEET!!! No pun intended.... but HOLY MOLY!
I've never worked on anything bigger than 12x12 INCHES!! Boy do I have my work cut out for me!
