BIRTHDAY to Steve Chan!
morning I got up really early and went to help out at the nursery at
Ed and Sue's church. Yeah, what's wrong with me???...like taking care
of my own baby isn't enough?!
Since I bitch about not having much of a social life here, I thought
I should do something about it. I'm sure sitting here complaining all
the time is really unbecoming of me. hehehe
This way I'm able to get out of the house and do something different,
meet new people, and do two things that I enjoy most - volunteer work
and playing with kids. Actually, I've been meaning to help out for a
while but never really put it into action...and after two days of being
preoccupied with self pity, I decided to do it. During the first service,
I watched the nursery kids...babies about the same age as Ashlyn. During
second service, I watched the toddlers. Toddlers are so adorable!...the
stage where they can walk, but not yet talk. I had one kid in particular
that clung to me the entire time, and wouldn't let me put him down.
*awww!* I met a lot of nice people today, and it felt good to get out
and do something for myself. I skipped third service so I could rush
home before Ashlyn got up. Sure enough, when I got home, she was still
Aric: "So...how was it?"
Peg: "It was great! I had a great time and the babies are so cute!"
Aric: "That's cool."
Peg: "Yeah, but the only thing I didn't enjoy was that everyone
kept urging me to attend the sermon."
not interested in joining the church. I just want to help out there.
Don't get me wrong...I have faith, I believe in god...I'm just not very
religious. My family is Buddhist, which is more of a philosphy of life
and being harmonious or whatever (...as you can tell, religion is very
lax in my family). But if I couldn't get myself to join my mom in Tao
lectures, why the heck would I start attending Christian service? Hopefully
that won't make me the total outcast at the nursery. =/ Since I notice
most Christians are hardcore.
Ashlyn, and I joined Ed, Sue, and a bunch church friends for lunch.
By the time we got home, I was so tired! The day feels so long when
you're up at the crackacracka dawn! After my nap, Aric and I watched
the other DVDs we rented - "Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back"
