Because I'm Terrible at Scrapbooks

Thursday Things, 7 May 2015

Last weekend Will found a snake in our driveway.

It’s not the first time this has happened. However, it was the first time something other than a garter snake was in our yard!

Yikes!🐍
That was no garter snake. It bowed up to Will and wouldn’t back down.

Real life.

Because we always go in pairs.
I walked in on someone using the restroom last week.

I’m not sure who was more embarrassed/annoyed- me or her.

In my defense, the door was marked “green” for empty and was not “red” for occupied, so it was open season.

Still… It’s a little awkward having to see that person in the finance review meeting after our tango in the bathroom. 😐

In too deep

Remember the garage sale I mentioned a few weeks ago?

I was right. Totally right. We’re a complete mess.

I have a feeling weeks later we’re going to realize there’s tons of stuff we should have sold but didn’t because we were too busy scrambling to get everything else together in preparation for the event.

Do you know how much work garage sales are?

Of course you do.

Whatever happened to putting everything in the lawn? Now you have to rent tables and get permits and all sorts of other red tape.

Say a prayer we score some serious cold hard cash.

Or at least get rid of Will’s DVD collection.

Street Outlaws
Soooo, I pretty much have a “celebrity” citing (?) every week.

I say “celebrity” citing with a question mark, because I’m not entirely sure people on a network reality show count?

It does, right? It totally does. They’re on national TV and have had multiple seasons.

Why would I even question it. Who do I think I am!?

Anyway, the Street Outlaws and I workout at the same gym, and apparently have for years.

On my Fridays off, they’re always there. My mom and dad are big fans of the show and always text me when they have a citing.

I’d never really watched it until recently, so I had no idea who was who.

So yeah. Fun fact.

If you’re a fan of the show I could probably score you an autograph between their bench press sets.

Things I need to learn

How to sew.

I needed very minor repairs on three pairs of work pants. However, since I can pretty much only sew a button (real life), I figured I better leave stitching a small hole to the professionals.

Turns out I would have been better on my own.

It was supposed to just take a week.

I went two weeks ago and she needed more time because of the prom rush.

I went the week after, and she had forgotten about me… And couldn’t find my clothes!

Insert the part where I completely internally freaked out in my mind while faking calm and order.

She said they were probably at her house, and she would call to confirm.

She never called.

She was closed over the weekend and thankfully called earlier this week and said she had my clothes.

Turns out they were done three weeks ago but every time she looked for the three items she never found them...because there were two black items and they looked like only one.

Sheesh.

Anyway, crisis averted. Sanity (mostly) intact.

Kindred hearts
I don’t have time in today’s post to tell you my story about kindred spirits and the Anne Shirleys in my life (perhaps I’ll explain one day).

However, I am compelled to share how incredibly blessed I am to have a friend with such a beautiful heart of God, obedient and tender to the Holy Spirit. So much so, that she has this unique ability to text me throughout the week when I need it most. I’m so blessed by those rare friendships, and even more blessed by Jesus and the fact that He loves me enough to show it in such beautiful people who share and love His word. Not to mention the beautiful quiet moments I get alone with Him, too!

Brittny Flint-2 years old & Mom

I’m not a mom, and am not sure if I ever will be, but there are lots of moms I love, including this one...mine!

That’s it for today, beauties. Any randomness you care to share?

Have a wonderful day!
