Is This Helter Skelter? Perhaps...

The family is pretty busy these days: three campus concerts - one last night (Thursday), another today, and a final concert on Saturday. Whew. Set lists, chord charts, lyrics, practices, setting up and tearing down, carting equipment here and there, last minute personnel changes, phone calls, etc. Who would ever think that all this goes into the making of a concert? Well, it does. And it makes for a busy home front, to say the least!

This very full weekend of college outreach will culminate on Sunday with an open invitation for lunch here at our home following church. "Estimated attendance?" I asked. "Plan for 90ish," was the exuberant reply. Okey doke. So today the planning began. I finally had time to consider a menu: baked ziti, salad, Italian bread, and cookie bars. A quick phone call to a friend experienced in preparing ziti for crowds has yielded more info. I now know the quantities to purchase and have a game plan for prep. That will all be put into action starting this afternoon. Buying, cooking, baking, and setting up. Fortunately I have a couple of daughters who are not involved in today's concert. Whew, again!

However, some semblance of real life goes on. A daughter returns from her yearlong stint in Friedrichshafen, Germany on Tuesday. We began planning for celebrating that homecoming this morning as well. None too soon, but sometimes we take things as they come around here!

School is still slated for starting this Tuesday, too. That along with homecomings. And how much school will we honestly get done on Wednesday with a sister finally at home? Maybe some of the morning routine while she sleeps in a bit, but I think flexibility will be the order of that day.

And so, you can see how routine works around here. It doesn't. That lovely schedule posted on my cupboard door simply provides something to aim at, a plan to assume when nothing else is happening. And once in awhile, on a rarer than rare occasion, nothing else is happening -nothing else at all.
