Let me start by saying that I had a great vacation with my family at the beach, but it wasn't all fun and games.. We left on Saturday, August 1st and that day as well as Sunday were great. Nice, hot weather with the occasional shower to cool off the afternoon. On Monday, it rained so hard during our family cook-out that we had to set up a beach umbrella to keep the rain off the burgers. Monday night I "celebrated" a bit too much and decided to take a swim in the ocean... at night... with my cell phone in my pocket. Not a good idea.
I mourned over my phone all day Tuesday, but then forgot about it and had a blast the rest of the week. However, I got home on Saturday, August 8th to a car that wouldn't start, so I spent my Sunday getting a new battery. After returning from the "battery" store, I had a message that my dad had a minor heart attack and was in the emergency room (remember, I have no cell phone, so my family couldn't contact me).
Sooo.. Although I did enjoy my week off on vacation with my family at the beach, it was a vacation week from he**...(if you know what I mean).
The good news is that I got my car running better than ever (it's still old and I could really use a new one), I had insurance on my phone, so T-Mobile had me a replacement in less than 24 hours (it still cost me $130.) And my dad had surgery today and is doing great and they expect him to be home in a week. Thanks to all who have kept my dad in there prayers.
So, when you think you're having a bad week.. Think again!
