One of those days....

TGIF - as the old saying goes - Thank God it's Friday!
It's a cold, icy, snowy day... but not enough to keep me home, in front of my cozy fireplace, w/ a cup of coffee and a good book. I have too much to do today at the office.
After I had settled into my work I get a frantic phone call from my darling husband! As he was flushing the loo he opened the medicine cabinet (above the loo) at the same time. Of course a small tube of face lotion plopped into the loo and was promptly flushed. Oh my - you would have thought his arm had been cut off when he called me! He was frantic and so worried that we would have to call a plumber to remove the bottle. Thank God for my brother in law. He went over w/ wrench in hand, they shut off the water, removed the toilet and retrieved the bottle of lotion. NO! I won't be using that particular bottle again! ha ha I am so thankful that he has since calmed down and is now laughing about the situation. I told him that it's just proof that men and multi-tasking don't mix. Don't open that cabinet until the water has completely been flushed!

As you prepare for the weekend dear ones - reflect back on the week. Were there instances that seemed so dire in the moment (like flushing a bottle of lotion down the loo) that you can now sit back and laugh about? I sure hope so!

What a great post! I can just imagine the phone call from your husband. I've SO been there. It's nice to laugh about later. I have an issue in my life this morning that I hope I'll laugh about soon. In the midst of it, it's not funny at all.

I love your blog... it's such a joy to visit.
Have a great weekend!
Love,
Angie xoxo
