Where Did the Week Go?


It seems like it was just Friday, but yet here it is again... it was a busy week, but looking back all I remember was all the car swapping and "umpteen" trips to town and the "car doctor", as our kids call the shop. My Jeep suddenly decided it needed lots of attention. I guess it thought the best option would be to quit cooling us humans off with air conditioner (which is not so funny in Georgia... even in September it is still hot), and also make the windows in the back fall off their track, down inside the door frame.

Needless to say the operation to fix these issues was not cheap. I nearly passed out when the car doctor gave me the news...

I think Geoff did.

But wait! There's more! I was sharing my Mom's Honda while I was without mine, and while I had both kiddos in the car it just up and quit on me. Yes it did... in the middle of a busy road, right after EJ's dance class.

That made twice it quit on me... the first time being in a long line of Mommies waiting to pick up their preschoolers. I finally got it going that time just as it was time for me to move up in line. Thank goodness for small miracles!

After I got it going again, we took it on over to the car doctor too. I think my Momma is going to start looking for a new car, which I wholeheartedly agree is high up on the agenda.

Especially as the car doctor himself just grinned as we drove it up to his shop...

Well, we've lots going on this weekend...

Tonight my Aunt and Uncle are taking us out to my favorite restaurant, Olive Garden... Geoff helped them move some furniture around, a couple of times (!) and they wanted to treat us. It certainly isn't necessary, but who can turn down Olive Garden and great company?!

Tomorrow is work day at our church, and then one of my best friends little boy, Walker, turns 1 with a birthday party at the Old House. She is actually my 3rd cousin too, making Walker my 4th(!)... It will be the first function there without cousin Fred, except for his funeral "celebration" lunch.

Tomorrow night Geoff and I are going to see Trisha Yearwood with our good friends... it will be a fun night out, and we haven't had one in a long while. Momma and Diddy are keeping the kids!

Sunday is church, and then hopefully I can catch up again on laundry. It's piling high, again. I think laundry and dishes are my least favorite job, but it has to be done all the same. My GeGe would roll over in her grave for my doing chores on Sunday, but Monday will be here soon enough with the start of another busy week...

And, Nana is coming to visit from Charleston, SC on Monday!

Have a wonderful weekend yall!

Thank you for sharing such cheerful images - I absolutely love sunflowers and they are what first drew me to your blog. Now that I'm here, I'll stick around and read a bit more. :-)
