It's been a couple of weird days.
Our washer broke last week.
10 billion loads of wash per week
(ok maybe i'm exaggerating a little)
7 year old washer
you do the math!
Anyway.. the maytag man had to come to our house today.
I was so thankful he knew what he was doing, and he got in, fixed it, collected his money and was gone ... all within about 30 minutes! Woohoo! so our washer is back up and running!
Today, a freakish thing happened...
the load in the back of my husband's truck shifted and crashed in his rear window on his truck.
Glass EVERY WHERE!
and i do mean everywhere
I was amazed at how much glass actually cam from that little window!
took us over an hour to suck it all up with the shop vac! All on the inside of the cab of his truck, all in the bed of the truck.. all under the seats and behind the seats..
I felt so bad for him :(
He was already having "one of those days" where it seemed
everything he touched turned sour. :(
and when it rains it pours!
donchya hate days like that? Where you feel like you are under attack ALL day long?
BUT... tomorrow is another day!
hopefully (prayerfully) a much better one!
Christmas came a little early for Danny and I this year :)
Our cell phones were so old they wouldn't hold a charge anymore for longer than about ten minutes - which is a joke for a man who uses his ALL day for work!
It was suggested that Santa ought to bring new cell batteries for our stockings.
they made them anymore
when you found them they were under $150 each!
Soooo Santa took a different route and found out that our service (Verizon) gives us a free phone upgrade every two years! (well free for one of us anyway! lol)
And Santa got us two new (THE COOLEST EVA!!! ) phones!
We are both like little kids learning how to use our new phones (read toys)
and all the kewl things it can do!
front of mine
it opens up to a full qwerty keyboard and bigger screen
I had bought my husband a GPS navigation system for Christmas.
our new phones have navigation systems IN THEM!!!! Seriously! Just like the tomtom!
So that's getting taken back! LOL!
He can check and return his emails while out on the road (metaphorically of course!)
He will be able to look up the nearest Home Depot very quickly on the web ...
(without having to call me and have me look it up for him)
He can search his email for the lockbox codes he has forgotten...
he can download music and videos and fun stuff
(not that he actually will... but he CAN!
He can download mp3's - sermons, music whatever from the puter and listen to them on this!
This 'phone' ROCKS!!!!!!
Oh yah.. and you can actually call someone on it! LOL!
And he is so very excited about it coming and getting turned on today..
that with as rotten of a day as he had... this had him smiling tonight!
What little (or big) boy (or girl for that matter!!!) doesn't love to get a new toy every once in a while??!!
I think Santa did good this year!
(even if he was a bit early!)
