(I just happen to be sipping on a peppermint mocha right now. I may spontaneously bounce from wall to wall shortly.)
Happy early Thanksgiving to all of you!!! Who's excited about families, lots of food, days off, and shopping on Black Friday?! I AM!!!
(Like I said, bouncing from wall to wall...)
Anyway, Superman and I have made a bit of a big decision recently. We are going to be Sunday School teachers for a new class of 20-somethings (mainly college graduates who aren't married). I was a little apprehensive about this decision, not only because it's added responsibility, but also because I love our Sunday School class. It's amazing. When Superman and I got married and switched churches, I really didn't think I'd find the camraderie (sp?) that we had at our old church. And I was right. It was better. =)
HOWEVER, things are a'changing...not for the bad, mind you...but changing enough where I realize WE need to make a change...
This past Sunday I realized said change as we sat in a semi-circle and listened to the lesson. There were about eight other couples in our class, and, as I glanced from person to person, a horrible realization hit me: I was alone. Yes, Superman was with me, but...
"Hmmm...Susie's pregnant, and Katie's pregnant, and the Williams already have a baby, and John and Jane are expecting their second, and Erica's pregnant, and we just found out last week that Gina's pregnant, and..."
All. Around. The. Room. Besides the Sunday School teacher, I was the only one who had NOT been through pregnancy.
I might have hyperventilated. Just a little.
I really don't want to get into a discussion as to whether or not I should have a baby, because, unless God deems otherwise, I will -- just not right now.
But I don't really want to be the odd man -- ahem, woman -- out.
So I'm really excited about teaching this new SS class, starting Dec. 13. We know some of the people in there, which makes it more fun, and I'm excited about the book we're starting: The Tough Sayings of Jesus. Superman's already wanting to start a class twitter and blog...I'll let him handle that. ;)
Oh, and one more celebratory note:
No more Super Duper University classes until 2010!!!
Happy Thanksgiving. =)
