Literally a Rotten Sunday

Yesterday's schedule was overloaded with places to be. I knew we would not be returning home until that evening, so I had lots to pack the kids for the day. Sunday mornings are a disaster anyways trying to get out the door early for church. Having a stupid time change didn't help either. Jacobs diaper bag was still stuffed in my backseat from the week before so I just packed his stuff in a plastic bag until the car ride. On our way to church I got out the diaper bag to throw everything in it. With being sick all week I hadn't been anywhere besides quick trips, so what was in there hadn't been touched in over a weeks time. First thing I noticed when I opened the bag was an old bottle of milk. It was still capped so I just tossed it below my seat and continued getting everything ready to take into church. As I'm filling up this tiny bottle of hand sanitizer to take in we all started to smell something absolutely nasty. Now I can't smell anything yet being so stuffy but I could really smell this stench. We are all looking everywhere until the smell became very distinctive... Rotten soured Milk! The bottle was leaking all under my shoes and soaking in the carpet. Quickly leaning over to grab it, hand sanitizer went everywhere. With only a roll of toilet paper in the car ( don't ask!) and hand sanitizer I cleaned it up. Leaving my hands smelling oh so wonderful, just in time to run into church. In the middle of church I realized not only I could still smell it on me but the bag as well. Little did I find it had leaked all inside in the bottom of the diaper bag that I had stuffed everything on top of. I felt so nasty, I refused to shake hands or take anything out of his bag. I kept everyone away using the Germ excuse to scare them off, letting them know I had been sick with the flu. Luckily, I don't think anyone got close enough get a wiff.

If you follow my blog, you know this isn't the first time I've had trouble at church.Do you think God's trying to tell me something? If so, please help me figure it out. I know they've about had it with me there.


  1. I think he's trying to tell you if you are willing to go through all that for Him, he's willing to help you through the rest of the week. Yay!

    P.S. If the stench is still in the car, just poor vinegar on it and let it air dry out. Might take a couple times.

  2. it depends if your trouble is with the people or the actual church. i am an episcopalian, however I did not feel accepted by the people I went to church with. I then tried out a baptist church, and while the teachings are more radical (something you might want to watch out for with a child at 7), the fellowship was amazing. it never hurts to try something new, and it could be good to show your kids a little bit of diversity.

  3. Hi Puddle Jumper, I absolutely love my church. We are members of a Baptist church, and have no problems. Anything I've said was just in sarcasm to be funny.
