Oops! I did it again!

So every time you go to Michaels they ask for your zipcode. I am so tired of them asking - really? They need to know this for 2 years? So when the lady asked once again, I looked at her and said, "You know, NOPE! I'm not going to give you my zipcode when I've told you everytime I've come in for the past two years and I'm sick of telling you the same thing everytime. You all need to figure out how to track this. So no, I'm not telling."

Yup, rude Z showed up again.........

Dum Dum

I was a real dum dum today. I hit a new low. I was totally rude to two ladies. Like not just kind of rude - Outright rude and gruff and so unChristlike. If I could find them right now I would apologize. It just isn't my nature to be rude like I was. It was like I have always wanted to say what I said but at the end of the day it made me feel really really bad. Does anyone remember You've Got Mail? Meg Ryan finally says the right rude comeback and realizes it didn't make her feel any better. Yup, that was me!

I was in line at FM with a cart full and was putting it on the conveyor belt. I was in a hurry. I was going to be late to a rehearsal at a high school. And the checker was SLOW SLOW SLOW and chatty to the lady in front of me. These two lovely women came up with a bag of corn on the cob and asked if they could go in front of me because they were in a hurry. I looked at them and told them that I was in a hurry too. They said they had to get to Merrill. I told them I was going to be late to a rehearsal and my obligations were just as important as theirs if not more important. And then I just kind of kept at them. I felt so stupid that I allowed my lack of preparation to be somewhere on time get in the way of me being nice. Arghhhhhh!

So ladies at FM - I apologize!

This is what some of our kids call Paul and they may be right. He pretty much amazes me everyday and I am hanging onto his coattails for dear life.

Yesterday he called home around 4:30 and said 'Let's meet for dinner'. So we met and he said 'Happy Anniversary'! I said 'What?' He said 'Happy 10th Anniversary'! To which I again said 'What?'. 'Today is the exact day I found out that I had cancer for the first time and I think we should mark this day with a celebration. He went on to thank me for being there during the dark days of cancer and how grateful he felt to be alive. Then he gave me a really nice present. Really? I got the present? He should be getting a present for surviving it all. He's just so thoughtful.............did I mention I'm hanging on to his coattails? Hard..............

Goodbye....You have served us well.

We bought two of these chairs..........21 years ago! They have moved with us - moved up and down in the house - been laid on - eaten on - and generally lived in. But more importantly, they are our famous 'white chair talks' chairs. Everyone of our children have been asked on many occasions to join us for a white chair talk. We have discussed many things with our kids on those chairs. A few of our in-law kids have had some explainin' to do as to why they were marrying our kids. We've cried in those chairs. We laughed in those chairs. We've yelled at those in the chairs. We've been yelled back at by those in the chairs. I've fallen asleep with my own kids and my grandbabies in those chairs. They are famous in our family circle.

And I will say that only one of our children felt so left out for never having been called for a white chair talk that she asked for one on her own and confessed. What did she confess to? To seeing a movie that was different than the one she said she was going to. What a pathetic confession Alli!

We bid these chairs goodbye. They know more about our family than anyone. They are being adopted into a new home that has no children. They will be lonely for sure. So until we meet again.............
