super fast post

yesterday was crazy. i felt like i never got anything done, (except the bills paid, and that's no fun) jere didn't even get home or get to eat supper til 9:30 and since he drove a bus yesterday morning at 6, he was the walking dead by then.

we were suppose to have grilled chicken fajitas a la dad and homemade guacamole for supper. during football season we do "friday night family favorite" dinner on thursdays. since this was our first one, i really wanted it to be special. i got all the yummy ingredients and then jere called around 1 to let me know he had forgotten that last night was instrument night for the band. the kids pick up, rent, or purchase instruments from the local music store and jere has to be there to advise and help out.

which meant i had to go pick up the girls from anson, take blythe to physical therapy, take blythe to the doctor, grab one more avocado, get home and get ready to start dinner with the kids and BAM!

thunder, lightning, wind, rain, and NO electricity! so no fajitas!!! i thought i could brave the weather and maybe grill the meat myself (jere grills in the rain, sleet, or snow :) but i just couldn't. besides it scared the kids every time i mentioned stepping outside into the storm.

i hope tonight is better. wish us luck. both girls are marching and daddy couldn't be prouder :D

blessings and happy friday,

Well, for a super fast post, it was very entertaining! Hey, at least you didn't totally MISS your sister's wedding. Yep, I never apologized for that. Sorry Danell! Not one of my best moments. I hope your special fajita and guacamole dinner go off without a hitch tonight! I can't wait to get into our new home and have a grill on the back patio. That will be so much fun. See ya' later 'gator.
