I am sure that that is the question that our ward members ask after observing my family during sacrament meeting. Today I sat with my gritted teeth trying to remain calm while my son kept trying to use the bench as a balance beam, and my five-year-old refused to get off of the floor. My other two were busy having a pinching war.... I have NO idea what the speakers topics were or what the songs were that we sung. It was such a painful 70 minutes. After it was over, I noticed all of the ground up cereal that was all over the floor and the ripped up pieces of the program. We made a mess! HOW EMBARRASSING! The lady in front of us kept turning around and looking at us like "will you please control your children" I wanted to scream back at her "here you give it a go...good luck!"
And then for the icing on the cake I got to go to primary and do sharing time!!! Wow, how could life get any better? So I went from one awful experience to another...the primary room was on a sugar high, I am convinced! AAAUUGGHHH! Can someone just shoot me now?
Today I actually considered walking out in the middle of it all and NEVER coming back. Inactivity looks sweeter every week. I get ZERO spiritualness (is that even a word) out of going to church, sometimes like I feel like I don't even have enough spirituality to be qualified to teach such young impressionable little people.
Do you think that anyone would notice if I just stopped going??? Yeah, the rest of the primary presidency probably would. SIGH.................... aren't Sunday's supposed to be a day of rest? I AM NOT FEELING IT!
