Breakin' up is hard to do...

Although we've been estranged for a while, we have yet to have the "break up" conversation with our old pastor. It's like that dating relationship that should have ended a couple of months ago, but drags on...though both parties know it's over.

I knew it was time for us to finalize things when I found myself wanting to toss the Manderin Orange Bath and Body Works body wash and Cool Citrus Basil lotion that I got as "thank you's" for teaching at the donut church. And wondering who I could give the gift card to a restaurant that isn't even in my town (another "Thank You" gift). Kind of like cleaning house after a break up.

Hubby was going to bring a letter and have the conversation yesterday, but his car started acting funny--it wouldn't go over 40 mph, then would rev up to 3000 rpm. Instead he headed home. We took it as a sign that yesterday wasn't the day.

So I'll hold onto the body wash a little longer...but does any one want a PotBelly Sandwich gift card? My best guess is that it has $5 on it. I tried to check the balance, but the calculator didn't work. If you're interested, please leave a comment with an e-mail address, and if there is more than one person interested, I'll use a random number generator to choose a winner on Sunday.


  1. You know, I would be game for some Potbelly! :)

    Also, I like those BBW scents. I say you should use them even if it was from a bad break up!

    By the way, I had the break up conversation, and I still do not feel totally resolved over the relationship. Perhaps, it was because I had invested so much time and energy into it. Sigh.

  2. My best friend loves this place :)

  3. I love this place and would love a gift card.

  4. We love Potbelly's and have one in our town.

  5. Hang in there. God must have something else in store. Go out with finesse........
