Lists are a huge part of my life! Everything has to be on a list and if something isn't on the list it's obviously not worth doing. So last Thursday I made my weekend list. I'm just positive that my family was as excited about seeing the weekend to do list and I was about making it ;) I had pretty much every waking moment planned out so what could go wrong?
As I handed out my printed to do list and posted an extra copy on the fridge incase anyone forgot where they put theirs, my youngest, Hannah, decided to inform me that I had forgotten that she was having a garage sale at her grandma's the next day followed by babysitting. I had forgotten so that left Kevin and I to get our lists done as well as hers for Saturday. I had it all figured out in my head and nothing was going to stop me from getting all this stuff done. If you want to give God a good laugh, tell him your plans. Oops I had forgotten that "little" detail.
As Saturday morning came, I was ready to send Kevin out to mow while I pulled weeds. Somehow in all the preparing for this task we didn't notice the underground sprinklers had been on. Well, that's ok we could just move our schedule around and mow after the grass dried. Everything we tried to do was impossible for one reason or another. I decided that instead of trying to force it to work, we would go to the local craft show followed by the greenhouse. I had been to our local greenhouses the weekend before, but nothing compares to the greenhouse that is across the state line about 30 miles from us. We stopped by the craft show (which wasn't too interesting this year) and headed to grandma's house as the garage sale was almost over now and we could go to the greenhouse from there. We stopped by and got Hannah and her boyfriend and off we went.
Once we got home, I planned on making up lost time by planting into the night. Once again, I forgot that I really don't make the plans. As I was getting everything together to plant, Kevin called for me to go look at the cloud that was trying to form into a tornado. Oh well, I can still plant during a tornado, right? The answer to that is NO! It's a definate NO if hail accompies it like it did last Saturday night.
