Blogger Fodder...

...Things I Learned This Weekend ...

1) Nine and a half dozen balloons do not all fit in one Expedition, but do, however, fit if divided in one Expedition making 2 trips, PLUS one mini van.

2) Latex balloons are not guaranteed by the store to float more than 12 hours, so ... if you pick up said balloons on a Saturday evening for a Sunday morning Celebration Service at church, and spend hours decorating with said balloons, you might arrive the next morning to find your floor and tables littered with shrivelled up shells of latex on a string.

3) However ... if you pray over each balloon to stay afloat as you manipulate them into the nice table decorations and floor decorations, and if you wake up at 1:00 in the morning feeling prompted to pray over said balloons again, and then spend the 20 minute ride to church the next morning pleading with God to have said balloons look nice until the Celebration Service is over ... God will hear your prayer, and you will arrive at church to find all latex balloons in perfect condition, with not a one shrivelled up shell of latex littering the tables or floor. Praise God!! He does care about balloons, too.

4) If a "person" has eyebrows that grow like grass, and occasionally need to trim the length of their eyebrows with a fine pair of scissors ... and said person notices that while they are rushing around to get ready for a special Celebration Service at church, those long eyebrows need trimming, and acknowledges by glancing at the clock that they are very, VERY short on time ... it would behoove said person to remember that using their husband's mustache trimmer as a last minute "quick fix" on eyebrows is MOST dangerous, and may result in the middle half of said eyebrow being mowed down to almost nothing. Which in turn will result in said person screaming and shedding a few tears over tragic loss of eyebrow. I won't share who "said person" is, but it was quite tragic.

5) If a "person" with half an eyebrow shares sorrowful story with girl friends at church (andmaybethepastorbutletsnotgothere), she will walk away with a very important tip ... use an eyebrow pencil.

6) Praise Jesus for a sable-brown eye pencil. "Said person" was able to walk into office with head held high come Monday morning.

Between nasal strips, balloons and mustached trimmers your life is just one bloggy adventure after another. While the rest write about laundry look at the fun stuff you have to write about. :v)

Er, sorry to the "said person." Unfortunately, said person has friends who would also do something like this...

And yay God for the balloons!!!
