He always provides. I don't know why we doubt this promise so often, but our God is always faithful. Praise the Lord!

Missing a cigar (butt)?

So tonight CC & I went to eat dinner at a restaurant which shall remain nameless. Now, when it first opened, this place was amazing! Lately though it's gone downhill quickly, and we leave disappointed every time. Well, we're tired and we were hungry and hadn't been in a while, so we both went to give it one last try and we each got a basket of fries and chicken fingers.

I had given up on my meal (it tasted weird, but I was hungry and ate about half) and went to consolidate my basket with the empty bread basket when I lifted off the tissue paper (that sits between your food and the basket) to find an unsual and unwanted present.

There was an old cigar butt in my basket! Gross was an understatement! It was so nasty that not even the manager had words. Fortunately, she was thoroughly disgusted and embarassed and ate the cost of our meal (CC's too). Needless to say, I think I've officially given up on this restaurant, despite the kind manager, Katee. Poor Katee. Ugh.

Tomorrow! Tomorrow!

So last Friday I went to wait in line to get the new iPhone 3G. I was about 33rd in line and settled in for a long wait. It was fun and CC eventually came to wait with me, which was super sweet. (He ended up missing two meetings at work to do it, so that was even more sweet.)

Well, the short version of the saga is that the one I wanted (black 16G) was all but promised and in my hands TWICE! To my chagrin, I left empty-handed, and the manager gave me expedited shipping and a free car charger with my order-- that's how close I was to having it! Big SIGH...

All this to say, I sure hope it comes in tomorrow!

A sigh of contentment

In case anyone actually reading my blog doesn't yet realize, I love our friends. We had such a great time (as always) and I am continually amazed at how God has blessed us through our friendships. Our friends are our family, and I always look forward to the next time we get together.
