Did I mention that I’m the co-organizer of this year’s ladies’ retreat at our church? And since the other co-organizer is in the States until the week of the retreat, I guess that makes me the organizer. And the retreat is in just over two weeks.
What am I supposed to be doing for this anyway? I’m not quite sure. The theme is on the “Seasons of Life”. My sister-in-law is going to be the speaker that weekend — she has young kids and is a nurse in a nursing home, so she experiences almost all of the “seasons of life” everyday! My whole goal for the weekend is to get the ladies talking, sharing our stories so that we can learn from we’ve experienced at the different stages of our lives.
So, I’m trying to think of “get to know you”-type games. And I’m sitting here tonight (while Marc is studying — just how we planned to celebrate our dating anniversary) googling like an idiot. You know how you get really bizarre google hits on your blog (like how everyday someone googles “used lingerie” and finds this post)? Well, tonight that would be me.
I’d love to see who in the group has done the most bizarre things. So I tried googling “bucket list”, but really only found stuff about the movie or people’s made up bucket lists which were very person-specific. Marc suggested I google “Meme +100 things you’ve done”, and I got a good list from that (not that one where it asks about having casual sex outdoors, you know the one that I mean, where you add up the points).
What else can I think of that will get the ladies talking and interacting and having fun? I’m sure inspiration will hit. Either at 1am or maybe as I’m driving to the retreat and have no way of getting supplies for the game. Oh well, I’ve got a bit of time.
Now back to the random google searches.
