....so ANYWAY...I go see the oral surgeon on Tuesday, JUST for him to tell me that he made a mistake-2 years ago. Really?? I wasn't upset with him or anything. I actually thought it was kinda funny. I mean, stuff happens. However, I'm not looking forward to having any type of surgery. Do you know he asked me if I wanted him to do it that day?
Are you serious?
He also asked me if I wanted to just have a local and some laughing gas. Well, my question is, what's gonna be so funny? I want the heavy duty drugs, pal!...just like last time! :-) Gotta love Valum :-).
So, I've scheduled my wisdom tooth removal Part deux for Feb. 5th. Gonna be fun!
Anyway, I have a cute story to tell you. Allow me to set the scene (I've always wanted to say that)
On Wednesday morning, a little after 7am, Jayla and I were headed out to school. And as I'm pulling out of the driveway and about to put the car in "drive", the conversation went something like this:
Jayla - (yells) "STOP!!"
I thought she'd forgotten something for school or had hurt herself or something. So I slammed on the brakes.
Jayla -"MOM, look at THAT!"
Mom - "Look at WHAT? It's dark out here!"
Jayla - "NO!, look right there!" (pointing at my neighbors trash that's out by the curb) "Do you see it?"
Mom - "What, baby?!? See what?"
I now see what she sees. Look at what she spotted...
Our neighbor was throwing this cute little doll crib out.
Jayla - "Oh MOM! Can I have it?"
Mom - "Really? You want that? It is kinda cute, isn't it?"
Jayla - "Yes, mommy! I LOVE it! Anna (my life like granddoll) will LOVE sleeping in there! Mom, can I have it, PLEEEZE?!?"
Mom - "Well, I guess so. They're throwing it away!"
So, I put the van in park and get out...looking as lovely as ever in my fuzzy purple socks, striped capri pajama pants, a nightgown, and my black winter coat (Ya'll are so jealous!) lol. I grab the little crib and put it in the back seat. I get back in the van and pull off. As we get to the entrance of our neighborhood, the conversation continues...
Jayla - "Mom, oh NO!"
Mom - (sarcastically rolling my eyes) "What is it?"
Jayla - "Mom, are we gonna go to jail? Are Mr. J & Mrs. L gonna call the police on us for stealing their bed?
Mom - (laughing) "No, sweetie, they were throwing it away. So I don't think they will mind that we got it."
Jayla - "Well, I hope not. Cuz I don't have time to go to jail, I've gotta finish school!" :-)
(side note: To ease my daughters concerns of a possible "theft by taking" criminal record, I assured her that I'd call our neighbors that day and let them know that we got their "trash" and we're gonna turn it into a "treasure".)
Anyway, I've been doing a little scrapbooking too. I kinda took 2008 off and only worked on a couple special projects. So I'm gonna try and get back at it this year. Here's a shot of both pages.
Below is a close-up of each page. I'm kinda pleased with how the turned out.
Alrighty then, I think that's about all I've got for today. Oh, how bout a Flower Fix?
Well, ya'll have a great weekend and I'll talk to you soon. Toodles!!
