Time For A Staycation

Watermelonlimeade
(Watermelon limeade that I made the other week.)

I had grand plans to get a bunch of posts scheduled this week, but then last week happened.  I tell you, I'm not sure I've ever had so many bad days happen in one week.  Here's a taste of what we had to deal with.

-I forgot Clyde's circumcision appointment (thankfully we were able to reschedule).

-I ran out of gas on the same day that I forgot to bring my wallet (thankfully a sweet gas station attendant loaned me ten dollars of her own money so I could get home!).

-I had a really rough day at work.  I don't even want to go into it.

-I forgot to bring my pump to work on Friday, and it was too late to turn around, so I had to stop by Walmart and buy another one (there goes 30 bucks).

-Harvey hurt his leg, and we had to take him to the vet.

-I got a flat tire.  A nice man helped me change it.  Then the spare was flat.  I had to wait 1.5 hours in a hot car for AAA to come tow me.  We had to buy a whole new set of tires.

-We decided to wait at a Target across the street for Derek to come pick us up, and we held up an entire line of traffic through a green light trying to cross the street (Wyatt lost his shoe, and I had to carry Gwen, tug Wyatt along, and try to manage a stroller all at once.)  I was ready to cut my losses and leave the shoe, but a nice guy ran back and grabbed it for Wyatt.

-Gwen almost ruined two outfits (but she loved that ICEE while we were waiting at Target).

-I lost the opal in my right-hand ring (I think they should be able to replace it.)

There were a lot of silver linings and helpful people, and I know it was the Lord trying to tell me everything would be okay!  But still, I'm pretty much exhausted.

This week Derek is on vacation, and we decided to make it a staycation!  We've never had a staycation before, but we decided we better save a little money since we had to spend so much last week. (We also had to get Derek's truck fixed, get our septic tank pumped, and get my camera fixed - that plus the tires and the vet added up to about $2,000.  Yuck.)  I think it will be fun though, and I'm going to try to treat it like a real vacation as much as possible.
So I'm signing out for the whole week after posting this, and I'm not blogging at all.  I'll be back next week with a recap!

Aww man, that's a lot of rough breaks! We've had two flat tires in the past couple months, they're no fun! (Thankfully my husband is getting really fast at changing them!) And that gas station attendant who loaned you the money was so nice!
