Not. Fair.

So much for that quasi-promise. Pete will be gone ALL day tomorrow...but I've got to be careful how loudly I complain, I guess.

One of our elders' wives called Pete at lunchtime and made him an offer he couldn't refuse. He and Jon are getting their extra tickets to the U. of Alabama home game tomorrow. I'm THRILLED for him, but.....

I'm staying here. Again. Trying to get caught up on planning, cleaning, preparing for a potluck, and resting (HAAAHAAAAAHAAAA!!!!!). And part of my planning is figuring how to stretch $400 for three weeks. Ouch. Ah, yes, and I've got that telltale scratchy throat and the odd sneezing fits that tell me there's a cold coming on.

Did I pray for patience? Oh, I get it. This is when I start that big-time study on contentment and a meek, quiet spirit. Got it, Lord. Loud and clear.

Oh, isn't that just the way?
I bet they have fun, though. And I bet they start getting really close now that Jon is a "man." (or the not living with you thing may help with that, too)

I'm telling you, my ticker for Drew leaving is not moving fast enough. Did I forget to blog how Drew got in an accident with TWO of our cars on the same day? And didn't tell us?

Don't you just wish you could learn some lessons by reading and submitting a report? This practicum thing, while effective, can really be a drag! *weary grin*

Did you survive the weekend? How's the cold, the hubs, and the financial adventure? We need an update, girlfriend! :)
