I have had some serious technical difficulties this week and was without Internet. Without. Internet. I know! It was close at times but, in the end, I did survive. One afternoon, I even resorted to cleaning out my car. Oh, friends. It was getting mighty scary in there. Sometime after the second kid, I really just gave up on ever having a vehicle that was not full of french fries and unexplained stickiness.
A couple of years ago, I was in a car accident. I rear ended a Gutter Guard truck. In my defense, I was trying to put my drink from McDonald’s into my cup holder. I missed the cup holder and the cup began to fall so, without thinking, I reached with both hands to grab it. The next thing I knew I had airbag burn on my face. As they loaded my car onto the tow truck, all I could think of was that some poor mechanic was going to open the door and be buried alive in half eaten cheerios. I called my dad, who knowing very well the state of my vehicle, met me at the garage with a roll of big black trash bags. You know – the ones normally reserved for yard work and hauling dead bodies.
So, all of that to say, I didn’t have Internet so I now have a clean car. I know that story was positively riveting and you are now sitting on the edge of your seat awaiting my next tale. Yeah.
Sadly, I missed posting Mid-Week Links. I hate for y’all to miss out on the Internety goodness from this week. So, we will just have a little linky fun today. Shall we?
- Wednesday Brought The Thunder by Boo Mama (Oh my goodness, y’all! Sophie’s book is out!)
- You can take this to the bank by Big Mama (You’re gonna laugh. Seriously.)
- Worst End of School Year Mom Ever by Jen Hatmaker (I know this has been all over the Internet, but so, so funny.)
- How to feel at home in your house and your skin at A Holy Experience (This is a guest post by the fabulous Lisa-Jo Baker.)
Don’t let the linky post fool you! It’s not Wednesday – it’s Friday!
You are loved! Have a great weekend!
