Not Exactly What We Planned


Ever had one of those weekends that just didn't go the way you planned? Well..that's the kind of weekend we had!! We were supposed to be celebrating a HOLIDAY weekend.

Yeah right. THAT didn't happen.

My brother was supposed to come and visit but he had a visitor himself...by the name of IRENE! So, he had plans for the weekend with tree cutter guys and roof people!

We had not one, but TWO breaks in the water line...so it is a good thing that we didn't have anyone staying with us. Finally got that fixed...for now. Until the backhoe arrives on Thursday.

We run up to get vegetables at our local stand, and the brakes go out in the little car. ARGHHHHH!!! This is car Number THREE with problems. We are ready to throw them all out. They are getting old. The guy at the garage said and I quote, "It's TIME, Mrs. Pursell." "You need to take this car off the road". NOT what I wanted to hear!!

So, the girlz are supposed to be getting ready to celebrate somebody's birthday in just a couple of days....and instead they did alot of sitting around watching this weekend!

And to top it off...it was raining.

How was YOUR weekend?????

Oh wow, sorry things didn't go as planned. Sounds like a lot went wrong! I do know the feeling, though, as it seems trouble comes in multiples sometimes! I have a hard time planning because many times, the plans fall through...

Here's to better days ahead!!! We are still thinking on a new car. We are pretty sure we will be getting a Subaru Outback. Now we are thinking about waiting on the 2012's. Hate the idea of payments, but LOVE the idea of reliability!

Hugs sent out to YOU, Ben, and the Girlz!

Oh dear...cars, you can't live with 'em, can't live without 'em. When it rains, it pours, would you like anymore BAD phrases that sum everything up? :-) We're under tornado/flood advisories here thru Wednesday from Lee. Pretty weather Friday & Saturday...Sunday not so much & Monday a total washout.

Hope you & the girlz see sunny skies soon!

Oh no...that sounds like not good at all! I am so sorry! Nothing too bad over our weekend except getting stuck on a mountain in pouring down rain and driving in it not being able to see at all. Luckily we made it home. It's still raining...I'm afraid to look at the basement...it always floods!! Lots of love, Debbie & Holly
