Awkward and Awesome Thursday

Thursday...already???
Where is the summer going?
Awkward:
  • Having to wait at the doctor's office for the doctor because there was a fire drill at the hospital.
  • Trying to cut a slice of watermelon and the slice sliding across the island onto a stool and landing on the floor.  3 second rule anyone?
  • Getting money at the ATM and your card isn't sliding into the slot, looking up into the rear view window and seeing a line of cars behind you.
  • A couple of days before my car accident I got caught in a storm and was stopped at a red light when the wind started blowing so hard that gum balls(the tree kind, not the chewing kind)and pine cones started bombing my car. 
  • People realizing that was my car turned-over on the sidewalk of my neighborhood and calling me to let me know they saw the wreck!
Awesome:
  • A friend bringing me lunch and hanging out with me as I recuperated.
  • Son2 and his cooking skills while I was down and out.
  • Long Hot Bubble Baths
  • Husband cleaning out son1's car for me to drive while he is out of town.  (would have been in the awkward category if the car hadn't been cleaned out)
  • Long weekend this weekend with husband in DC.
 This is another PRE-wreck outfit. 
 I really haven't gotten very dressed up since then.
  I will have to get back into the swing of things this weekend in DC.

Any great plans this weekend??

You look great here. Love those classy sandals.
I can't help but wonder if being dive bombed by gumballs, etc...was some kind of warning of your coming accident. ;)
