Life has a funny way of taking over, we think we have it all under control, we schedule everything, we make list and keep to them and we even plan out for day ahead, and then BAM! Life happens.

I know I have blogged about this before, and I know that really I have noting need to add to the topic, but I feel that we often times forget to plan in life, we forget to plan for the BAM’s in our life.

This weekend is an example of what I am talking about, my plan, simple as it was, was to do my wash and clean my house on Saturday, and then maybe stain my deck Sunday was Church then off to do some shopping for a 6th grade retreat that is happening this Saturday. But a BAM happened, by sink decided to back up. No big deal, add a little draino and all is good.

BAM!

Nope, didn’t help, so I add more, and still no good, so I had to call in the big guns, and they charge time and a half on Saturdays, so there went all my spare time and money. Life just happened, and I failed to plan for it.

Now you may say, how could you have planned for that? Well I could not have, but I could have planned better to start with. For example I knew that I needed supplies for the retreat for some time now, but I just put it off, not really concerned about it, and BAM! Life happened.

So really this blog is more for me then you, it’s a reminder to me that life can and will happen when you really don’t want it to.

A reminder that if I would have done what I needed to, Saturday would have been expensive and yes a bummer, but really no big deal.

But as it was, I let the experience control me instead of me controlling it…. Such is life, live and learn…
