That's Just The Way It Is...Again!
The other day I wrote about my water bottle being left at home... Yesterday as I was leaving to have lunch with friends, I noticed a leak coming out of my bottle! There was a huge crack down at the bottom so I had to throw it away. That's just the way it is!
It's The End Of The Week:D
I'm really glad this week came to a close. I was at church each day from 8 in the morning to 9 at night. That's not a typical week for me, so I fell into bed exhausted each night. My dad was on vacation this week, so I spent 30 minutes talking to him after I got home from VBS each night... that's a rare thing for us (I work during the day and he works 2nd shift). Last night was the big "Bonanza" night for VBS:o) It sure was fun to see the kids running around to all the games and then coming over to the food table. A few of us girls were running the old-fashioned popcorn maker... which worked great, once the smoke cleared and we realized our mistake. Note to self: follow the instructions written on the machine, not the advice of a guy who used to work one at Wal*Mart! After VBS last night, a dozen single girls crammed into a friend's house to talk, laugh, eat food, watch movies, and sleep. The *festivities* started at 11:15, but by 2:15 I was a goner. Waking up at 4:45 in the morning and going to bed at 2:15 is an awful long time to stay awake!!!!! So I grabbed my pillow and blanket and drifted off to dream land with an air conditioner blowing above me and the laughter of girls floating through the room.
Today a friend of mine planned to move at noon. The rain clouds moved in at 12:05 and a downpour with all the works (thunder and lightening included for free) fell at 12:35. My friend decided to wait until another day to move, thinking the rain wouldn't stop. We all left and the rain stopped at 2:00. Go figure....:D
