Where did my weekend go?!?

Eric and I had planned to go to Macon, GA Friday night after work. However, the doctor I work for called bright and early and said he was sick..... Yuckie (I have had this mess for a week now!). So I got up and headed to the office to call the patients. Needless to say I went home around 9 am and got some things done around the house and we were off to GA early, which was really nice to get to take our time and eat dinner at a sit down place instead of from the drive thru! Oh yeah.... I forgot to tell you guys why we were headed to Macon. Because of Hubby's great speaking skills (can you tell I'm a little partial or what?) he was asked to speak at a youth rally. We didn't take any kids.... we asked them but lately we have been so busy most of them just wanted to stay at home (and I don't blame them.... we have a lot coming up soon too) so Eric and I took the opportunity to go by ourselves. It was an uplifting weekend with great speakers and wonderful singing! We stayed with the youth minister and his wife! The boys chatted a few minutes on Friday night but Laura and I stayed up till 2:30 chatting away! I love getting to spend time with another YM wife. Without even knowing each other we already had so much to talk about and quickly became friends! God knew I needed this little blessing and he sends them at just the right time.... as he did a few months ago when he sent another WM wife my way when I felt I had hit bottom..... we were supposed to leave after lunch on Saturday but I asked Eric if we could stay a little longer so I could hear Laura teach the girls class.... he was happy that she and I had clicked so well.... he said ok! She did a great job with her lesson and she even gave me her outline in case I wanted to use any of the information later on! How nice was that?!? Then we packed in the clown mobile (my aunt calls Hubbys car this because its so little compared to "The Burb" my mom drives lol) and headed back home. We made a pit stop at Hubbys parents house so we could eat dinner with them. His Dads birthday was last week and so we celebrated with them Saturday night! It was nice to see them and to get to spend time with his dad for his birthday. Sunday was very busy for me! We had church and then we grabbed a bite to eat for lunch and then I was doing a Partylite show for a lady at our church. it was from 2-4 and I left around 4:40 so I could get to church in time to have a girls class. Eric and I are each teaching a Lads-to-Leaders class. He of course has the guys and I have the girls..... the book for the girls is called gifts and the boys have one called guard. Each time we meet we go over the chapter (that they should have read) and we answer some questions together. They then have to pick 3 projects to do from the end of the chapter to be turned in at the next meeting. I also had a gifts 2 meeting after church. Then on the way home Eric's car just wasn't in the mood to make it home (I guess he wanted a break b/c of all the traveling he has done over the last few months). For those of you that have not seen Hubbys car..... he has a 2000 and something model Ford Focus. So this thing should not be giving us any tude, as in ATTI-TUDE! Needless to say that thing is out of commission today and it is driving hubby nuts! So when we got home from church last night we loaded up in the Nissan and went to eat. Made it home with enough time to relax on the couch....... before bed. Then I woke up this morning with a soar throat....still............. I feel fine its just my throat that is having the problem! All in all it was a busy but good weekend......... oh yeah.... for those of you that know The Maddox family listed on my side bar on the right.... they were in an accident this weekend. They are all ok with the exception of some bruises. Please pray that they find a car soon and to thank God for keeping them safe. By the looks of the pictures you wouldn't believe that a few bruises was all they have. How was your weekend?
