So one of my goals in since conference is to get more active in ward activities. I am a member of the enrichment committee so I attend as many of those activities as I have been able. Yet I feel like I need to do more. So, I have become a “yes” woman. When I read about the apple sauce activity in Relief Society, I signed up and paid right away.
I had no IDEA what I was signing up for.
The e-mail I received on Friday afternoon said that it would take 3-4 hours. Yikes. I had tones of other things to do that morning, so I decided that I could commit at least two hours. I got there and it was immediately clear that we would be there for many more hours than that.
Hundreds of jars. Seriously. I did only stay my committed two hours but a friend from the ward told me that the group was there at least 8, if not more! By the end of my two hours, I was sweaty as sticky all over. My eyelids were sticking to my face and my fingers were sticking together. My back hurt from leaning over and I hated apples. I admire those people who stayed THE WHOLE TIME! You guys are awesome.
It cost $1.25 per jar. I was at Walmart the other day, I saw jars twice this size for…$1.29. Is it OK that I am OK with just buying my own sauce from now on?
