Do you know what happens when you make plans? Something, that's what. Something always happens. I got up extra early yesterday, double checked all the bags made sure the house was realatively tidy and the Sweet Pea headed down the street with the grandma. Dh and I jump in the truck and head off on our exciting adventure. We get less than 40 miles from home and our truck breaks down. What?!?! This truck isn't even a year old. You. have. got. to. be. kidding. me! Sensors start chiming, warning lights are coming on and the truck powers down to about 20 miles per hour. What the heck? Turns out the fuel injector pump is going out. Wonderful. So we have to call another driver and have him come get our trailer to take the load to Michigan. Bye exciting new land. Bye wonderful weekend alone with Hubby. Bye to the money we would have made on this haul. Ugh. Needless to say while waiting in a parking lot for the other driver to show up I had a bit of a breakdown and pity party.
And I don't apologize for it one bit. Naturally it's not a fun thing when you miss out on something you've looked forward to. Not to mention giving up and entire week's salary. Ouch. But once my little pity party was over I made a new plan. (yes I know) Luckily for me the parking lot just happened to be that of a Walmart so I decided to go inside and mope around a bit. They do have a fabric section afterall. If that wouldn't cheer me up, nothing would. There wasn't an employee to be found so I left my fabric sitting and decided to look for a new project for our weekend. Since we weren't going to have a wonderful weekend away, I vowed to create a wonderful family weekend at home.
I bought groceries to make some of our favorite meals, a new case of canning jars for the pickled okra I'll be making this weekend and even a few miscellaneous art supplies to occupy us in the near future. I'm feeling much better today and our fun family weekend is off to a great start. Today was a wonderful day with some great pictures that I'll share with you all tomorrow. Tonight I'm just relaxing with some late night tv and some blog surfing.
Hope you have a wonderful weekend too!
