The weekend comes again…every week!!! How amazing is that? We had a little sunshine late today…a welcome relief after rain and clouds all week. Went to Pamida after work…all clearance items 50% off!! I’ve been eyeing toasters for a year and they had one at original price of $49.99…with a clearance price of $44.99. That means $22.50, right? Nooooo…we get to the check out counter with a couple of other items and she rings us up at $24.04. We told her it should be more. She said no I rang it up at $34.99 and took 50% off. We told her to look at the tag again because it said $44.99 and she looked and said “we are not arguing about this..it’s too hard to change it now!!!” Thanks, Dee!!!! That’s one cheap toaster, and it has a tiny oven area, too.
Then we come home and had leftovers for supper—YEAH!!!! Tomorrow I need to bake a birthday cake and we’re low on cookies. Tabbi’s will be over some time on Sunday for Jon’s birthday, and I’m sure that two little boys won’t understand a birthday without birthday cake!! At least that’s my excuse to bake. And I need to clean, too. Megan works tomorrow and gets Greg on Sunday. Jon and Kelli have his parents there this weekend so everyone is busy and blessed!!
Thought for the day
Sometimes it’s hard for me to balance busy and not busy. How about you? When I’m busy I think what I’d like to be doing if I wasn’t busy. When I’m not busy I can have a really good day or spiral downward feeling lonely or useless. It’s definitely true for me that I need times of both being busy and having down time. I many times have no control over whether I am busy or not, but I need to really learn that whichever I am at the time is God’s choice for me and exactly what I need right then. I need to then relax and ENJOY what He has given. Let’s thank Him and praise Him either way and take that day, or even those years, of our lives and LIVE THEM to the fullest?
