I’m taking a ride on the “Tuesday Train” blog hop. Today feels like one of those days when I’d like to hop aboard a real train…and just “get away”. Instead, let me tell you a little bit about this past weekend…
Jennifer was given a bridal shower at her church on Sunday afternoon. After giving it some thought, Brad decided to accompany Jennifer to the shower. I love a man who is adventurous, don’t you? Brad’s never been a shy person, so it didn’t really surprise me that he would agree to be the only male in a room full of females, with most of them being age forty and up!
Brad and Jennifer have both been having grueling work schedules lately, so the shower was a good opportunity for them to spend some extra time together. Sunday happened to be the only day, last week, that Brad didn’t have to work! The two of them decided to attend church services together, and just stay at church until the shower began at two o’clock.
I laughed as I listened to the two of them telling the story of how their day began on Sunday morning. They decided to drive Brad’s grandmother’s car to church because it’s a large car, and would allow more room to bring their gifts home (why do older people drive such big cars???). They continued to tell the story of how they first had to unload MeMa’s “potty chair” and “wheelchair” before they could even drive it! (excess items from the personal care home) The thought of the two of them sporting around town in MeMa’s Lincon Towncar, accessorized with a potty and a wheelchair struck me funny!
Then, Jennifer decided to take a table overlay, and one of her new candle centerpieces (for the reception) to church, to see how they were going to look on the tables. Unfortunately, something happened, and she broke one of the glass votive holders in the church parking lot–and managed to cut her finger, as well. She said she entered the services with a church bulletin wrapped around her bleeding finger! Then, later, she discovered that she had ordered the wrong size overlays for the tables…Not a good start to the day!
