    Thanks for a great post. This is all very very very familiar to me, there's something very "treadmill" about it.

    We just love it all don't we?!

    this draconian regime of strict obeyance was so much a part of my unhappy life for so long - and even though it hasn't been for the last five years, i still relish every moment of tuesday and thursday evenings and sunday mornings ... sigh ...

    This reminded me of what I had started to get into.
    Although I was only a study....but told I was a very
    "dedicated" one....made Saturday study, or holiday's,
    and had not missed more than 2 meetings in seven months,
    (before I came back to reality)...and did this with 2
    children in tow(it really WAS SO MUCH MORE FUN!).
    With my 4 yr. old sleeping for almost 2 hours at the
    Sunday talk. Can I a separate "Sunday School"
    geared towards children...considered a sin???
    Probably...... the end of my "weekend", I needed two more
    days to rest....from my "rest".
