1. Having a little sense of humor as we head into the weekend and linking up with Jen. This week seemed to have been filled with several opportunities to just laugh at the situation and roll with the punches. Keeping it real, thought I would share a few examples.
2. I was going to post a delish chicken kabob recipe this past week, complete with colorful photos and all. It’s one of my favorites, a light and tasty summer dish that gives you a break from all of the hamburgers and brats. I had the veggies cut up, the meat marinading and was T-30 minutes from getting it on the grill. The clouds opened up and when it rains, it pours! Full thunderstorm complete with high winds and hail. I analyzed the situation and decided to recant the request for my husband to head outdoors and grill it up. Of course he realized it would have been heroic and in the interest of the betterment of the blog!
3. I was out running errands earlier this week including a marathon trip to the grocery store to restock our shelves. I spent at least a good hour in the mega-store stocking up like we were headed into a winter blizzard and engaging in lively conversation with the cashiers. Upon arrival home I realized that my fly had been open the entire grocery excursion, no wonder the cashiers seemed so giddy. God just keeping me humble and all.
4. I went ahead and decided to chop the locks, keeping it pretty exciting in this household. We were getting ready to head out for work in the morning and I wanted to get a picture of the new do to send my mom, dependent on her validation. My husband replied saying he thought my selfies could wait until after work.
5. I decided I need a resolution to my alarm clock situation. I currently use my cell phone, which I just reach over and grab, hit snooze and turn three remaining alarms off as I am already drifting back to sleep. The last few mornings I have been waking up when my husband’s alarm goes off, which is late, real late. I am now contemplating hiding my alarm in various places, which would force me to actually get out of bed to shut it off. It may or may not work.
6. Upon arrival home from being out of town Memorial Day weekend we were welcomed back by a weepy, watery basement. Our sump pump had gone out while we were away and left us with some clean-up and me a little panicked how we would remedy the situation at 9:30pm with stores already closed. It could have been so much worse, considering the amount of rain over the weekend and the fact that our house is built on a swamp.
7. My husband was suppose to go out of town this week for work, low and behold 6:00am Monday morning his car doesn’t start, completely dead. The funny thing was, I was kind of nervous about him taking his car anyways, because it’s on its 9th life and has a history of the clutch going out. So, I guess the Holy Spirit took care of it before he even left the driveway!
Better laugh than cry. The thing that gets me out of bed first is that the last one out has to make the bed :>
I’m just picturing your face upon realization of #3 and I have to smile! Love reading your blog, Cassie! Miss you!
