Weekends are usually a big deal in for our pastor family. The night before church we usually have a small group in our home, or a bible study or something else oriented toward social and spiritual activity.
We're up early to get to church before it's "on-time", and the first weekend of the month is always a potluck.
BC (that's "before children" if you're wondering), I always traipsed along for whatever was happening, or if my PH had afternoon obligations, I'd make plans with friends.
Now, however, there's a baby who needs his nap, and I'm the mommy who can hardly wait to get home and crash when church is over.
The times, they are a-changin'...
But this last weekend, I'd made plans with several old friends to spend the afternoon together. The PH had committee meetings all afternoon and into the evening, and I was looking forward to relaxing with girlfriends at home while the baby napped.
Except that none of them were able to make it.
So I spent the whole afternoon by myself, pining away... Granted the extra nap was nice, but it was still a let down.
And it got me thinking - what do other PW's do on lonely rainy afternoons?
How do you fill your time when your PH is busy on the days that other families usually spend together?
