Random thoughts of a stay-at-home mom
For many years we had church at 9:30 am and about a year ago they cganged it to 10:30. We have to be there at 9 am for branch council and it takes us 30 minutes to get to church so it has been really hard for us! We have made it a goal to get there on time this year. The thing I have found to be the most helpful is to be ready the night before. It is kind of hard getting 3 childrens' clothes and a dh laid out, but whern I do it just makes my morning go so much easier. We are adding a child this year so now I am going to be even craisier!
I will switch you. I *am* a morning person, and I loved that the morning schedule matched ds's eat/nap schedule. *sigh* Oh well.
We're meeting at 9:00 too this year, not too much different than 9:30 last year. I find that we have to aim for a "leave" time...we live about 10 miles from our meeting house and in Southern California, where there is traffic everyday, all day, so it takes us 20-30 mins to get to church, usually on Sunday morning only 20, so we LEAVE the house 30 minutes before church. This morning we left at 8:30 and we were quite a bit early because there were fewer cars on the road than at 9:00 like last year. Next week we'll leave at 8:35, til we figure out what time is the right one.
Well, we were only a few mins late, arrived just as the opening hymn was finishing, which is better than normal actually. It's still sad that church is only 3 mins away and we are always late lol.
