Things Aren’t Always As They Seem

Sunday, December 6, 2009


So world are you ready? Ready for a post where I don't just whine the whole time about who rough life is?? Well here you go, strap on your seatbelt and enjoy the ride.

I have had a wonderful weekend. It started on Friday. I got a bill, WHAT! yes I know, this bill is for the little one that is about to turn one. Who is excited about a bill, well me when it takes a YEAR to get it taken care of. So finally our insurance decided that the hundreds of dollars we send them a month was enough to actually pay a claim. I got so happy when I got to call the people and pay them my part. YES, done with that!!

Next I called AT&T to see about this new corporate discount thing. They are more than happy to sign you up for your discount for a $36 fee. Um, what? So in like six months I make that back right? Seems silly to me too. Anywho, the nice lady added a credit to my account for $36 bucks. SWEET! Ok here is where it gets really good. I told her that was so great and that I had just forked out 300 bones to the dr today and was feeling kinda poor so I appreciated her help. This sweet lady then proceeded to add an additional credit to my account to cover next months bill, just to help out this holiday season! Can you believe it???

Then I got to go to lunch with the ladies at one of my favorite places. I even got to eat my food while it was warm. And I only had to share when I wanted to!! It was so much fun and I am so greatful for good friends. I was just thinking as I am laying here with a bit of a tummy ache that I know I could call and 11pm and that my sweet friend would run to the store to get me my 7up just like if it was 11 in the morning. Sweet ladies!!

Here is the scary part. I got home yesterday from my me time and slid right past our street in the snow. It was not fun! It took me 3 tries to get the stupid car to actually go where I was steering it. Then I slid off the driveway into the yard once I got home. Then I decided we needed new tires. Off we went, my first born riding with me in the death trap, I know mother of the year on that one! We were almost there when I lost control of the car. We slid sideways for a minute and them just started spinning and spinning. I asked her how many times we went around and she said she thought at least four. We stopped in the turn lane right before we crossed into oncoming traffic. Which means we slid/spun across three lanes. FUN! Well she thought it was fun, just like a ride. She actually said she was upset that it was illegal and we could not do it again. I am so grateful to the people that were aware behind me that stopped when we first started sliding. As we were sliding I saw both of them brake and stop to wait so they did not hit us. By the time we stopped the car was stalled and they continued to wait for me to get it started and back on the road before they passed. I hope I can be that person for someone one day. Made the whole thing a bit less scary.

So there you go. I know that we surely had some blessings pouring down this weekend. I aim to make myself worthy of them this week. Right now there is someone out there that is praying for help, don't worry, if I can help you I will find you this week. I want to be the answer to someone's prayer like these sweet people were to mine. Thanks for listening to me gush about the good times.
