What I did over my last summer weekend....

This weekend we went whitewater rafting with some friends. We had the greatest time! This was my fourth time rafting and I have to say it was one of the most adventurous. On the second rapid our boat (which held me, Pop Rocks, one of our friends, three guys from another group and our guide) got stuck in a hydraulic part of the river. I have been down this river before and “played” in the same hydraulic.
When you are on the river it isn’t exactly encouraging to hear your guide say, “This is about to get interesting.” In our case it meant we were getting stuck and the second time that another boat was going to go over us.

It was a fun weekend filled with laughter, adventure, fun, food, football, and most of all friendship. I thoroughly enjoyed myself and spending time with my friends.

What is one of your greatest memories of times with friends?

  1. That sounds like so much fun!! I spent several evenings this Thursday getting to know new friends, which was so much fun after a few months of not knowing anybody in my new town :)

  2. So fun! I have never been rafting before.

    I think I enjoy being with friends most over a nice quiet meal...catching up, hanging out...board games would be fun too. I know, I'm so adventurous! =p But really, doing anything is fun with friends.

  3. I love to play board games, so it is always a treat to have all the kids upstairs asleep and to be able to stay up late and play games with our friends.

  4. I haven't been rafting in over 10...15 years! Goodness, I need to get out more:) Good for you! We used to get together every Friday night with our best friend's family and have dinner and play board or card games. I miss those nights so much. We haven't made any friends here yet that we can do that with. One day!

How to Complain

After yesterday's post, I though I should provide something a little more helpful to my readers. Here are some tips I've developed from answering customer service calls and emails from time to time. You may have some other extremely helpful tips, feel free to leave them in the comments so we can all benefit!
Be Specific. This is definitely my number one tip. If you aren't specific it means that the person on the other end doesn't know details that can be used to rectify the situation. Also, the more details you provide the more credibility you lend to the situation. If it is a reoccurring incident call each time it happens. From a customer service standpoint, we would rather rectify the situation now than find about it in two days when it has happened two more times.Don't Rant, Yell, or Scream. Tell someone you would like to complain and then do it with a cool head. This may mean that you need to write an email complaint versus getting on the phone. Keep in mind th…

Falling For You by Becky Wade

I don't think I have read a Becky Wade book that I haven't liked. Her newest release, Falling For You, followed that trend.

In this sequel to True To You which I reviewed last year, Willow Bradford must face her past when her ex-boyfriend shows back up in her life. Corbin Stewart is cajoled to recruit Willow as an investigator into a family mystery by his almost-niece, Charlotte. The three of them team up to figure out what happened in Charlotte's family.

Willow and Corbin are a study in opposites. Willow is a rule-following people-pleaser. Corbin is used to charming his way into getting what he wants with no care for the rules. The sparks between the two are hot, but their past still haunts them.

I loved this book. The characters were charming and endearing. I love that this series continues from book to book, though each can be read alone. It was fun to read as the characters grew and changed in their relationships to God, others and themselves. 

I definitely recommend this …

First Impressions by Debra White Smith

I am a total sucker for anything related to "Pride and Prejudice". I love it all. Funny story, I fell in love with the movie, not the book. I love the book in its own right, but I wouldn't have read it, if not for the movie. I can still remember sitting in the theater feeling so blown away by the story on the screen. I wanted more. The book filled in the holes, left by the movie and I love the whole story.

I recently read "First Impressions" by Debra White Smith and I was smitten. The book is a twist on the classic "Pride and Prejudice" plot, but it worked well. The characters personalities were slightly different from the characters that Austen wrote and of course, the modern day circumstances were too.

I didn't have any trouble following the story and though I knew the likely ending, I didn't want to stop reading. (That to me is a sign of a really great writer!) I highly recommend this book, if you love the classic, love the movie or have no c…
