I'M BACK.......

Oh, It feels good!!! 

 I have had internet withdrawal the last several days... seriously. I think I have even had the shakes and everything. When I finally logged onto my E-mail, for about 60 seconds on Sunday, I had 130 E-mails. By the time I got home last night, I was too tired to even start, so when I got around to it this morning, there were 168. 168 E-mails is too many. Luckily, about 100 of them were easily scanned and deleted. I can handle 68. 

 But what have I been doing for these last few days, since I obviously haven't been on the internet? Well, I will have to tell you in increments, because I have been doing A LOT. 
 Let's start with Thursday... 

 Any guesses what I was doing? Thursday night was absolutely wonderful! After Mom and Emilee went to see Wicked a few weeks ago, they insisted that I HAD to see it when I was in town. Unfortunately, I left the camera with the pictures from that night at Mom's house. I will have to see if Dad can E-mail me the pics. But, there are two funny stories real quick. I went to Wicked with Eva Jo and Hannah. Hannah was the Flower Girl in my wedding. Now she is old enough to go see Wicked with me. She will be 14 this week, and that freaks me out just a little. That makes me feel just a little bit old - she was a tiny little girl, and now, she is half grown. 

  Also, I was all dressed up for Wicked, and we were running a few errands before hand. I went to the police station to get fingerprinted (adoption stuff) in tiny little Adairsville (just FYI, they can't do that there). Here I am, in my cute little skirt and heels, walking from the car, when suddenly, all progress ceases. I got my heel stuck in a grate. Mom had to get out of the car, help me get my shoe off, twist and turn, before it finally came back out. I was just laughing the whole time, thinking that I belonged on a television sitcom. Surely my life could be a t.v. show. I have never seen Sex in the City, but from the commercials, that seems like something would happen on there. Or maybe it would fit better on "Seinfeld". Either way, it was hilarious. 

 We are late for Story Hour. I will have to give the rest of the week's event later...
 There will be pictures, I promise. Until then, keep smiling!

HA! The last time I wore heels was when Elijah was a baby, and I wore them to church (feeling adventurous!). He started fussing just as communion started, so I stood up to go out with him and as I was walking down the side aisle, my heel got stuck in the floor a/c vent! I almost fell, gave a good tug, and the whole vent came out of the floor!!!!! By this time I was laughing so hard (along with everyone who could see what had happened!) that I just left my shoe and limped out! Someone was nice enough to rescue my shoe and chase me down. Communion that day was neither quiet nor serious... :)

Stories like that are Better than TV! :) Thanks for sharing yours. Now I don't feel quite so silly! :)
