Barely Time to Breathe!

What a day! It seems like there's so much to do in preparation for the General Authorities who are coming this month. A member of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles will be here this coming weekend for a Stake Conference and to change the Stake Presidency. It's so tempting to miss our meetings in Plaquemine so we can go to that conference, but we're going to do the right thing and attend our own branch.

I think things are finally under control for next week and Elder Teh's arrival. Buildings. Check! Lunches. Check! Calendar reprinted for the 5th time. Check! Dinner arranged for Tuesday night for the Teh's, President and Sister Hansen and all of the office staff. Check! (Elder Fontenot assumed that task. That must have been a relief for Sister Hansen. And I think the rest of the responsibilities are someone else's bags to pick up.

Then Elder Cook, from the Quorum of the Twelve, Bishop Stevenson, from the Presiding Bishopric, and another Elder from the First Quorum of Seventies arrives at the end of January for a few days in Baton Rouge and New Orleans. And Elder Kopischke comes in February. But none of those are crises yet:)

In addition to those duties there were referrals, commissary for Wednesday, a multitude of phone calls, lots of name tag orders, and letters, itineraries and certificates to get out to Stake Presidents, Bishops, parents and missionaries. I worked until 5 but still have a sky-high pile of things to finish in the morning.
