First let me start off by telling you that I am not a deadbeat, my problem is
I only have half a brain. And its not the good half, its the “I would
probably forget the rest of my brain if it wasn’t attached to my head half.”
As you all know I left on July 19th for a fantastic vacation. We drove
straight through Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, and part of Missouri
to get to our friends’ house. We had an excellent time.
I took a bus (not recommended) from St. Louis to Chicago so I could
spend 36 hours of fun with 1400 of my closest friends to have my
husband loose a grip when coming to pick me up. It was great with a terrible
crash at the end with hubs, but that is a story for another day.
We drove straight through Illinois, Indiana and Ohio to get home at 4:00
in the morning on Saturday to find a nice letter from the electric company
on our door. It started out with the words “Attention Occupant”
Let me tell you that when letters are started
out with “Attention Occupant” things are never good.
Who knew when you didn’t pay the electric bill because they had signed
you up for some crazed program that sends your electric bill to your junk
mail folder that they might get snippy and cut off your electric not caring
that no one is home and you have a freezer full of meat. And because
all of this craziness happened on a Saturday we had to wait until Monday
to get our power turned back on. Even though I paid them on Saturday.
All’s I can say is thank goodness for awesome neighbors and 5 day
coolers and mom’s who make you roast beef in a crock pot so you have
a hot meal that doesn’t include a drive thru.
So while you all have been doing this or that, our family has been busy
playing Amish for the past 3 days and well, if I was ever unsure of whether
or not I would cut it as an Amish person I can say with utmost confidence.
I. WOULD. NOT.
So, while I would love to tell you the glory of our vacation, the screw up with
my business cards, the awesomeness of slightly attending BlogHer, or the awesome
giveaway I should have posted aboutalready; I can’t. I have to attend to
the laundryand refill the now cleaned out fridge and freezer.
I guess there is an upside to this, my appliances are now
show room fresh, just don’t sniff to deeply.
