Monday my son and I went to a model railroad club museum so he could earn his Railroading Merit Badge.
Tuesday my youngest son started his first job.
Wednesday- Babysat my granddaughter and we took a trip to the library.
Thursday- Bible Study
Friday- An overnighter at Miller castle to set up the Haunted Maze
Saturday- the Haunting took place
Sunday- I tried my second Freezer Cooking Day and went to another Eagle Scout ceremony in the afternoon.
All of this while working two jobs and running my son back and forth to work! I love staying busy, but one of these days I’m gonna drop! 🙂
I’m sure it’s not necessary to tell you, I didn’t get much done in the way of reading last week. I haven’t finished The Night Circus or started Cleopatra: A Life for my book club, but I WILL get them done this week. On top of that I will be starting Redemption by Stacey Lannert and Kristen Kemp.
On July 5th, 1990, Stacey Lannert shot and killer her father who had been abusing her sexually since she was 7. Missouri state law, a disbelieving prosecutor, and Stacey’s own fragile psyche conspired against her: she was found guilty of first degree murder and sentenced to life in prison without parole.
Redemption is Stacey’s candid memoir of what happened after she found herself in prison for life. It is an extraordinary account of Stacey’s will to live a positive-even triumphant life, and ultimately, the healing power of forgiveness.
After spending as many years in prison as she had out of it, on January 10th, 2009, outgoing Missouri Governor, Matt Blunt, commuted Stacey’s life sentence. Six days later she walked out of the prison gates a free woman. Redemption is the story of how Stacey became a free woman while still inside those gates.
Hmmm…maybe I’ve bitten off more than I can chew! We’ll see how well I do next week! Have a great week!
