why I like reading blogs...
This is why I like reading blogs. Yesterday was a bummer day. I was looking forward to the arrival of my oldest son, as he was coming into town for a job interview. It just happened to be his birthday. Great timing! So...I made a cake from scratch, which I might add is very different texture from Betty Crocker, and I said, "It's your birthday and Cinco de Mayo so let's go out to eat!"
Unfortunately, he had to finish a term paper and he told me not to fix dinner, he'd just snack and drink coffee all night.
Then, the house smelled like propane because there was a leak in the repair that the handyman had made earlier - hot water tank. So...I shut off the gas to the tank. Needless to say, no hot water and we're back to square one with the tank; this probably means a new tank!
I was DOWWWNNN....then this morning I read the first blog I came across and I forgot the disappointments of life, the little things that don't go the way we want. But really, isn't that what a blog is all about - putting life on paper, as imperfect as it is.
