require so much work that you begin to doubt if they're worth it. For instance, I went to Women of Faith in October with some wonderful ladies in our church. The house was in a wonderful working order at the time that I left. It certainly wasn't perfectly clean, but everything seemed to flow. Edwin did a great job keeping things straight and fairly clean, but I never explained all of the systems that were set into place. (Edwin wouldn't have had the time to use them if I had.) Our home and all of her systems haven't yet rebounded from the three days that I was gone.
We're about to head down to see my family for a few days. I can hardly wait to be in my parents' home, at their dinner table, and in my home church. On the other hand, I have to pack and prepare the house for our departure. I do not, in this case, doubt if my time with my parents and little brother will be worth it, but it is an awful lot of work.
So I should probably get to it.
