Murphy's Law

I didn't make this graphic but thought it was tooooo cute and also it brought Penny to mind with purses and accessories.

Now to Murphy's Law.....when your house is a total disgrace, someone will definitely come knocking at the door and, yep, that's exactly what happened today.

My BF took me out last night.  I got home around 10.  The Sprint guy was supposed to show up between 3-5 p.m.  No problem....5 hrs of cleaning; my house would definitely be more than presentable.  OK...here comes Murphy's Law....I had to take Grizzly out to go potty and who pulls up at the front.  You got it.  The Sprint guy at 10:15 a.m.  I was totally mortified.  Of course, I had to let him in but sheesh, he must have thought we were a bunch of pigs, or at least total slobs.  The only thing there wasn't was any dishes in the sink but that's the extent of the cleanliness.  I'm in the midst of taking the tree down so there were boxes everywhere and my son's clothes strewn hither thither from one end of the family room to the other.  I had to forge a trail for the poor guy to walk through.

My DSL is fine and, of course, working well.  Hope it stays that way because I don't want to see the Sprint man for a long time.

Megan and I then decided to take a trip to Target.....well, Megan wanted me to go with her.  LOL...now that's a very good way for any female to assauge disappointment.  I hesitated because I didn't want to spend the money which I knew I would be tempted to but went anyway.  We ended up in accessories.  I bought myself leather gloves and a new scarf to go with my new coat.  Megan got two sets of hats, scarves and gloves (cute as could be with little ball things hanging off them) plus the cutest jewelry box.  We then decided to get the heck out of there because we both are on budgets.

Tomorrow she goes back to school.  What a month it has been.  I know I will miss her when she's gone but it will be somewhat peaceful once again.

Shelly, I'm doing your roast  in the crockpot recipe tomorrow....can't wait.  Megan and I also went and got all the stuff we need for that.

Also, please continue to keep Kara A Day With Kara in your prayers.  Her husband is updating her journal. 

Good night to all..........CHRIS

Loved the graphic, Chris! I bet the Sprint guy has seen worse. I never worry about the appearance of my house any more. Otherwise, no one, even myself, would feel welcomed here :)

Speaking of going away to school....my daughter Kara was talking about some art school today that's in New Jersey....I'm starting to freak....that's about 1000 miles away from Florida.  I'll hate it I just know it.  How do you let go?  Glad you got out shopping...good for the soul...and have fun with the crockpot...my favorite.  lol  GBU, Shelly

Hi Chris...lol. Gotta love that graphic!
I`m surprised the guy showed up early. They are usually late after you`ve waited all day! Either way, he sure wasn`t on time! Reminds me of a story about my friend Matt.... his house was broken into and some things stolen....when the police got there, they took one look at his living room and asked, "Did the robbers do all this??" ( because it was such a mess )  ......to which he sheepishly replied...."Uh, no, actually my daughter did that." ....LOL.
Nothing like Target to brighten your mood! I was there twice this week. Heh.
Love ya,
Penny
