I should never say those words when people ask me what I am doing this weekend! I told my friends at work, nothing a quiet weekend except for cleaning the church. Famous last words! Friday night my cousin asked me if I would watch her 8 year old daughter and she ended up staying the night and then on Saturday I cleaned church with my brother, sister-in-law and the kids (well they did not really clean) and they ended up going to lunch with us and then I ended up babysitting my 12 year old nephew and my 10 year old niece.
We stayed around the house for a bit playing on the wii and then we ran some errands and then I packed up a bag and drove them to the mall and made them walk really fast with me! It rained all day and through the night. When I got to my sister-in-law's house it was about 5:30 already and they were both in a panic because the freezer in the garage was not working and it was filled to the brim and they really can't afford to lose all that food with them barely scraping by.
I asked them if they were sure that it was not the bulb so then we ended up clearing a space to move it out so that my brother could look at it and running to the store for a new bulb and oh gosh it was just crazy because they were so stressed out and the kids got stressed out but then my brother said lets pray over this and we all prayed together and you know what? We all calmed down and figured out that the freezer is working but the light socket is not working!
We did all go to bed exhausted though and I am still sort of tired. After church and choir rehearsel and lunch and the dishes I sat down and relaxed for a bit and then I went on a really good walk and here it is almost 7:00 p.m. already and another weekend is about over!
Maybe next weekend will be my quiet weekend!!!!!
