Yesterday, I had to pick up a few things at the grocery story. You know things like chips, avocados, yogurt, stuff for a cheesecake, etc., etc. However, this was NOT on my list...

I wasn't even charged for the "Dunk ems", so I am a little suspect on how they made their way into the bag. I have one idea, but isn't he a little young for shoplifting?

new mercies

Monday was a bad, bad, very bad day...which I already told you about (btw my keys are still missing!). Thank goodness that God's mercies are new every morning! Tuesday brought some unexpected blessings... I had an appointment to get my hair cut AND colored. It isn't a cheap thing. But, I was only charged $40 for the entire appointment! I even told the girl that I had my hair colored and cut, and she said it was $40. Paul got a free sandwich at McDonald's for lunch. And we put in an offer on a house here in Lubbock. Paul called me about 10 minutes ago to tell me that our offer was counter or anything!

We decided to put our Houston plans on hold for a while. The job market is not a good one right now (as you probably know), and Paul's been looking for a job in Houston for about 9 months now. So, we made the decision to start house hunting here in Lubbock. We called the realtor last Monday, looked at our first houses last Tuesday, and made an offer yesterday which was accepted this morning. New mercies indeed!

And, I have an adorable son who picked up the watering can and decided to water the flowers - we did not stage this!

it's been a terrible, no-good, very bad day

So, yesterday I lost my keys but didn't know that I had lost them until today. And my phone fell in the pool this afternoon. It is pretty much d-e-a-d, dead. And, we were supposed to meet Paul for an appointment but had no way of communicating with him on those details. And, Jonas is teething and hurts. And,we were late to a lunch meeting...because I had no keys to drive the car to said meeting. And, we are trying to make a BIG decision (more to come on that). And, I get really grumpy when all those things happen in one day.
