God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change; courage to change the things I can; and wisdom to know the difference.
Living one day at a time; Enjoying one moment at a time; Accepting hardships as the pathway to peace; Taking, as He did, this sinful world as it is, not as I would have it; Trusting that He will make all things right if I surrender to His Will; That I may be reasonably happy in this life and supremely happy with Him Forever in the next. Amen.
--Reinhold Niebuhr
"Friendship is the hardest thing in the world to explain. It's not something you learn in school. But, if you haven't learned the meaning of friendship, you really haven't learned anything."

Ouch one of those weekends. Yesterday I got up uncomfortable and rather stiff then I had to trim shrubs, seal black top, plant flowers and do the trimming at my mom's. Needless to say by the time I got all of that done I wasn't just uncomfortable I was in major pain.

So I get a shower and take some meds and go to lay down and what do I hear. Something that sounds like a water leak. Sure enough I follow the sound and find that I have a leak under my house. So I get the neighbor to turn the water off at the street for me and start trying to find a plumber. Needless to say no one returns calls, finally about 2 hours after I start making phone calls one calls back and offers to come out today around 10 and fix it.

So I've not only been in pain all weekend I've been without water most of the weekend also :( They have been in and out about 4 times now trying to get it fixed they are off after parts right now and then they are supposed to be back and get it fixed. I'm scared to see what this is going to cost me :( Oh well at least I'll have water.

So any way that's my weekend in all it's living color. What is everyone else up to this weekend? I hope you have all found some time to do a little scrap booking. Any one learn any new techniques you would like to teach? I would love to do something different all of my layouts are starting to look alike I would love to find something new and exciting :)

Btw, does anyone have a formula on how you set up page kits I'm trying to get organized for scrap pink and I have no idea how to go about it :( I start to pack up a kit and end up having half of he scrap room in each bag :( I need instructions :)

Time to get off of the computer and get something done even if it's wrong...hope everyone is having a good weekend.

Take care and God Bless,

So sorry about the water problems. Hope all is well now! I'd love to hear too if you get advice on page kits... I am so not good at that. I still worry I will want something I didn't think to include.

I hope they get your water problems solved today. I'm not very good about putting together page kits. Usually when I go to a crop I end up bringing everything and only use 1/4 of it.

LOL!! you two ladies are as bad as me :)

The water is fixed and it didn't cost as much as I thought it would :)

Sorry to hear about the water leak and the pain Jane! I hope things turn around quickly. At least it didn't cost as much. :)

Don't worry, I usually avoid crops because I tend to pack everything and only use a small bit of it. :)

Sorry to hear about your pain and water and finding out you had no internet part of the weekend. You were TESTED this weekend! :-) Those kind of weekends are tuff. Hugs.
