Ready to Retreat!!

I swore that I would never do one again. It's really not me at all. But, as you read this I am preparing to go on a womens retreat with my church. I know, I know, I will have a good time and all that. I can certainly use a break. The last retreat I went on was probably 12 years ago and we went to the beach. It was lovely, and all, I am just an odd little bird who has issues.

Okay, first, I don't want to share a bed with anyone other than my husband. I don't want to be in a double bed with a pal and somehow end up spooning in the middle of the night. SO NOT MY THING! Second, I am the type of person that needs my space. I don't want to be scrapbooking or doing bible studies until the wee hours of the morning. I want to be able to go to bed and have some quiet when I need to. Picky, right? And finally? I just have a hard time doing a whole weekend of Kum-ba-yah, you know?

This year's retreat is up in the mountains and looks to be beautiful. Since I am seriously back at church and involved in a small group, I thought that it would be a good thing to go. Say a prayer for me that the weekend goes well. I hope all of you have a great weekend!

Have a great time Stacey! Just remember what makes you comfortable. Yes... you should participate, but you don't have to go beyond your personally boundaries of comfort.

God bless and have a wonderful weekend.

Oh, have fun! I never liked going away with the womenfolk for a weekend. It's always just weird. I remember the quilters always wanting to go and stay up all night quilting. Yeah/no. If I'm gonna lose sleep for something, it sure as hell isn't going to be quilting!!

Have fun, pally.

Retreat is a venue for reflection of the past and present condition of our lives. I hope you could reflect well and you'd be able to talk with God. Good luck.

Hope you do have a good weekend. It will probably be better than you think. Let us know.
