Bummer Weekend

Dingdang, we lost the football game the other night (and probably the conference title to be called ours and ours alone). We didn't play our best game, and the opponents did -- it's as simple as that. Time to pick ourselves up, learn from it, make the adjustments and move on!

Then we discovered that our new plumbing is leaking in the basement (not too much, but enough to not be good). Plus the truck (which was fixed last week) is still not fixed. And the pumpkin patch/family fall fun day I had planned for after church turned out to be a big let-down....I thought this would be a great weekend to take advantage of the glorious fall color and 80 degree weather; let's go to the Harvest Festival at a local vineyard (which was not as local as we would have liked--took an hour to get there, the kids were hungry, and their "free" hayrides were not free, nor were they giving away food (Okay, pretzels and cheese dip samples, but $4.00 burgers?? come ON!!! Don't advertise as "fun for the whole family" if you're going to charge $4.00 a burger and $2.00 per person on the hay wagon. I'll go get my dad's flatrack and pull it with our lawn mower!!)

In the immortal words of Charlie Brown....ARGH.

If this is all I have to complain about, life is pretty good, isn't it!!

Consider it pure joy, my brothers, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith develops perseverance.--James 1:2-3
