Am I a wimp?

This morning my stake was having an Enrichment activity that I really wanted to attend titled Prepare every needful thing. As I'm sure you can imagine it was on preparedness. They had different mini classes and you could choose 3 to attend plus everyone attended a 4th class which was food. The others were:
Financial Preparation
Emergency Prep
3 month supply

I knew exactly which classes I wanted to attend and made 2 dishes that they provided me the recipe for. My daughter had volunteered to help with the nursery and so we got up early, dressed and went to the stake center. As I walked in with her, there were so many couples dropping off their kiddos and so off she went to do her childcare duties. I walked down the hall to drop my dishes off at the kitchen and saw a bunch of people I knew...all walking hand in hand with their hubbies and looking oh so happy and cheerful. It was then that I was hit with emotion (sadness - which doesn't happen too, I didn't cry). I suddenly began to really miss my hubby, I felt lonely and started feeling sorry for myself. I quickly lost my desire to attend this function by myself and so, I left.
Am I a wimp or what?

the nerve

I went to a "boutique" know, when someone opens up their home for a weekend to various vendors and invites the public in...essentially, it is a craft fair but in someones home. Anyways, as I walked around looking at the ridiculously overpriced products and hideous looking creations I wondered what on this green earth possesses people to sell some of this stuff!! I mean, who the heck would pay $60 for a ribbon with a rhinestone at the end...honestly!! You could walk into Goodwill and get the same thing for 4 bucks!! The nerve of some people.

mi casa es su casa

Tomorrow we will be learning how to can butter here at my house at noon and again at 7pm. Along with the excitement of canning butter we will be having a little cinco de mayo luncheon...can anyone say yuuuummmmy? It is potluck style and I have no clue what anyone is bringing but it still sounds good. I know I am making a pot of beans, some spanish rice and chips and queso. Please feel free to join us if you feel so inclined...mi casa es su casa!!
