I have a good
Well, I have lots of good
1) I'm way behind on my fifth craft till Christmas due to a VERY FRUSTRATING measuring and cutting mistake. The most frustrating part is that there is no one to blame except me . . . ugh . . . I hate it when that happens. Every spare minute for the next week will be spent on this project.
2) We had a short two-day trip out of town this last weekend which definitely cramped my bloggy-style. But I got my first haircut in almost seven months . . . woo hoo! Please don't ask why I have to take a two-day trip to get my hair cut.
3) My oldest starts kindergarten this week, and I've been hard at work gathering school supplies, labeling school supplies, gathering healthy and simple lunch options and thinking of a good first-day surprise for the teacher and class.
4) My husband and I are celebrating seven years of marriage today. Here we are practicing vows the night before our wedding:
We had planned to celebrate by driving 45 minutes away to have the husband fitted for a new suit and then driving 45 minutes back home and going to work the rest of the day. Doesn't that sound exciting?! Well, our day actually did get way more exciting . . . or frustrating . . . yep, I'm going to go with frustrating! I dropped the husband off at the suit place so he could get started while I ran a quick errand at another store. With quick errand done, I returned to the car . . . and this is where it gets good . . . or frustrating . . . yep, I'm going to go with frustrating again . . . insert key in ignition . . . nothing! Wait . . . I'm no car expert, but when you insert a key into the ignition and turn it, isn't the engine supposed to start or something like that? So, turns out that the very same car that had been running fine not even 15 minutes earlier was now not running fine. I trekked myself back to the suit store and relayed the good news (thick sarcasm intended) to the husband who replied with, "Happy anniversary?!" (And yes, it sounded much more like a question than a statement of fact.)
To make a long story short (a story that involved A LOT of walking) our brief morning together turned into a very long day separated with the wife (me . . . in case you needed clarification) parked at Starbucks and the husband parked at the mechanic across town.
Happy Anniversary?! Indeed!
Even though we aren't living it up on our anniversary, I'm so thankful for the seven years we've had to figure out life together.
What did your Monday bring? Time to do everything you hoped to do? Or an expected trek?
