Friday Fill-ins and the vacuum

I have a crazy busy weekend this weekend......what's new, right?!

My daughter is leaving in the morning to drive to Houston for a friends wedding. She will be on the road 10+ hours Friday and then 4-5 more on Saturday. Please pray with me for safe travel for her!! It's so hard when your children get old enough to do things like this because you never quit worrying about them!!

Just an update on my vacuum.......I called the store to see how it was going and the lady said that they would not be able to get to it until next week, there were several others in front of it! I asked if they knew what the problem was and what it smelled like and she said "oh yes! I wrapped it in several bags" don't you think that if that were the case you might just move it up a notch on the to do list?!!!!

What is it going to smell like when they get to it?!!!

.............I'm sure now I will be getting a new vacuum.........great.

Here are my Friday fill-ins:

1. All children alarm their parents, if only because you are forever expecting the unexpected.

2. Show me a good loser and I will show you the ultimate winner.

3. Eating the chocolate cake our youth pastor just made for us is like eating an entire box of chocolate liqueurs at one time absolutely amazing!!!

4. Too bad that all the people who know how to run the country are busy successfully running a company and making a profit.

5. I have yet to hear a man ask for advice on how to combine work and being a dad.

6. It is impossible to think of any good meal, no matter how plain or elegant, without bread or dessert in it.

7. And as for the weekend, tonight I'm looking forward to a rehearsal dinner, tomorrow my plans include being part of a beautiful wedding and my husband officiating and Sunday, I want to enjoy church and then pamper my husband!

Happy Father's day to all the dads out there!!!

Well, it's a relief to know that you worry to. I was beginning to thing I had a patent on that. :) Is there a meal complete without bread or dessert? I think not! I will pray for your daughter's safety, and your ability to sleep well in her absence.

I was wondering about the vacuum. Is part of their repair going to be getting the smell out? Seems like that will be lingering for months and months. Eww...its gross just thinking about that smell.
