Thank God for Good Friends

I had great plans for Thursday night. I was going to put the boys to bed on time and we were going to watch this. Then Todd went and messed up a good thing. He was weed eating at about 8:30 last night and a rock flew up and shattered (basically destroyed) the sliding glass doors. We've been wanting to replace the sliding doors with french doors for awhile but this wasn't the way we were thinking. So it was off to Lowe's to get a new door.
We found everything we needed and made it out of there just before closing. Well once outside with door literally in hand we found out it was not going to fit in our truck bed thanks to the camper shell. The store was closed and we forgot our cell phones. So I left Todd in the parking lot holding this 60"x 80" door and went home to get our phone. We're talking 11pm now people. He called some good friends and THANK GOD FOR THEM! Would you believe 4 PEOPLE showed up at Lowe's 11:30pm on a work night. 3 of the 4 were able to stay and help install the door. The job was completed at 12:45pm. Seriously I can't be more thankful for them because it was either that or Todd was going to have to "borrow" a Lowe's cart and push it home. LOL
