One of my biggest "pet peeves" is when you take out a new light bulb, right out of the box, you screw it in and it doesn't work! My biggest ALTRA annoying "pet peeve" is when you take yet a second light bulb out of a brand new box and IT doesn't work either! Tell me - what are the chances of this happening? AND! it wasn't just a table lamp that needed the bulb either! It was a ceiling light that I needed a step ladder for because we have such WONDERFUL high ceilings! I was a little annoyed.
On a more positive note... I turned on CMT last week and saw a video of a group called "Point of Grace"! This may not be so amazing to you if you don't know Point of Grace.
They happen to be a Christian Adult Contemporary group, and they just happen to be one of my favorite Christian groups, I have about 3 of their CDs! Wow, that really threw me for a loop! CMT playing Christian music! So I put one of their songs on my blog for this weeks new song. Let me know what you think of them, I love their sound together, they have great voices.
On Saturday I went out to lunch with a couple of women that I used to work with. We had a great time. We stayed at our table for 2 1/2 hrs just talking! They both quit working at the school last year too, and both of them work for the NY state park system.
Saturday night Glen and I got together with two of our best friends for dinner. We love getting together with them! They are fun to be with and we just really enjoy their friendship. Someday they will be moving to Texas (they own a place down there) and it will be a really sad day for us!
I LOVE Texas! and can't wait to be visiting them, but I will miss them so much. Uh Oh, now I did it... tears in my eyes!
Sunday Glen and I went to Geneva to "Tractor Supply" shopping, love that store! They have all kinds of cool stuff! Clothes, toys, books, and all kinds of farm stuff. Then we went to "Tim Horton's" for coffee and danishes. Personally I think they have the absolute best cappuccino! If you have never had it you should try it. Hmmmm... speaking of, Mom in TN, Shelley in MI, Shelly in NC, and Paula and Casey in CT - Do they have Tim Horton's there? If not, I feel your pain!
I commented on all your comments so be sure to go back and read them!
