Not As Planned

I was going to name this post "A Big Bust," but then I decided it would conjure up images of large braziers...not what I had in mind. Then I thought about calling it "A Big Flop," but that wasn't the idea I was going for either. So, let's just call it "not as planned."

If you recall, I sent my child to school in a costume on Friday thinking it was Halloween. The rest of my weekend pretty much followed the same pattern.

The Plan: Have a pumpkin carving party with friends Friday Night.
The Reality: Attend work gala with husband and send a thousand thank you's to Susan for taking care of my boy last minute.

The Plan: Take Eli to Monster Mash at Corvette Museum
The Reality: Eli falls asleep in route, so I pick up pizza for lunch and hold a sleeping baby while we eat.

The Plan: Trunk Or Treat at church on Saturday Night
The Reality: I totally confused the date, so we sit at home and play.

The Plan: Carve Pumpkins Sunday afternoon.
The Reality: I clean while Eric works on Eli's costume.

The Plan: Attend Small Groups as a family on Sunday night.
The Reality: Eli and I head out while Eric finishes Eli's costume.

Nothing, and I do mean NOTHING went as planned this past weekend. And you know what? I couldn't be more thankful. I ended up getting a pretty gnarly cold that had me watching Lifetime Movies and napping pretty much the whole weekend.

Happy Halloween!!

Oh the sweet blessing of failed plans!
