I know it has been FOREVER since I've posted on here...so please forgive me.
I would like to relate to you a little story about my birthday a few days ago...It was a fairly average day, and I worked on a paper for school in the morning. After a lunch of very yummy salad Mama gave me my presents. A pretty yellow synthetic rose ( I started to sing, "There's a yellow rose in Texas...." when I took it out of the bag :) ), powdered mineral foundation and blush, and a new Bible! An ESV study Bible. Yay!! I had been wanting a new one...my old one looks a bit raggedy about the binding. We also ate GAPS aproved coconut cake. Oh so yummy :) My new glasses came the same day as well! So, after lunch I returned upstairs to work on my paper and later Savannah and I ended up chatting over Skype and then she called me up...so I sat there and talked to her until it was past time for Mama and I to have left to go to the entertainment event that was being held at church that evening. So we were running late...Mama gave me the key to lock the door on our way out, which I did, then hopped into the car and away we went. Well, when we arrived in the church parking lot, I had forgotten that the key was still in my lap burried in my jacket (It was quite chilly), but I happened to see it as I was getting out of the car and being in a hurry because we were late and becuse it was cold out, I hastily grabed the key and plunged it into my purse...or so I thought. Mom and I went in and we enjoyed the show. When it was over and we had stood around and talked for a bit we decided it was time to go home (Mama had a headache). And when we arrived home, wonder of wonders...they key was not ANYWHERE in my purse or in the car...guess what, haste makes waste and extra trouble (hmmm...seems like I've heard that before). So anyway, what are we going to do!?! Are we going to have to break into our own house?!? Really don't want to have to break that glass window...Thankfully however, there was another option....which I *fairly* quicky decided on doing....In the back bathroom there is a window that opens into the stairwell of the basement and it is very easy to open, in fact sometiems it slides down a few inches on its own. So I got a 5 gallon bucket and with the aid of the top end of a 2x4 to which the hand railing is crewed, I clamored up, opened the window, and steped in on top of the washing machine...the cat freaked out and went running when she saw me coming through that window (which I was rather glad of, becuase that way she didn't try to get out). And then I unlocked the door and life proceeded. It all sound funny now, but at the time I was very agrivated at myslef for loosing the key!! You do not, EVER, loose your house key!! Unless you're a qualified burgler and it's no big deal to open a locked door...(alright, bad joke...) So afer dumping everything out of my purse and searching in the car some more, I finally decied that I must have missed my plunge and droped the key on the gravel, and it must still be at chruch. And you know what? It was :) On Sunday morning we arrived a little early purposely to try and find the key before anybody parked on it...and before we were even parked ourselves I said "There it is!!" (It's on a dark brown rawhide string, so it showed up nicely against the white gravel). So I hopped out right quick and grabed it up and took special care to be sure it was IN my safely zipped purse before I proceeded to go inside!!
Anyway, that was my "epoch" birthday.
Don't worry...I do not write my school papers this way...costant reppition of the word 'so', endless spelling and grammar mistakes...at least I hope not...and I really hope that there aren't too many here either, but I am in a bit of a hurry and need to go now, SO I hope that you enjoyed this :)
(sorry, I guess I'm feeling ornery:) )
