II Chronicles 7:14

If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.

Miserable Monday

Sunday night,like I mentioned in my last post, I was feeling a bit on the "frisky" side so I decided to dig out some lingere. Great--terrific---until I made the HORRIBLE choice to wear it to take Brooklyn to school on Monday morning. Here's the deal: I take her to school, which is 3 miles from my house, in my van with dark tinted windows. I don't have to get out or even open the door...she just opens her side door and lets herself out and then I am back on the road home again. Normally I put on clothes JUST in case anything were to happen but we were running late and I thought...what's the chance? So, I throw on my robe and my house shoes and we head off in the POURING RAIN. Everything is going fine and I drop her off. Then I turn around to head back home and BOOM! all of a sudden my van is going, ka-jump, ka-jump, ka-jump. I hop out and run around and look and Yep, I have a flat. In my lingere, in the pouring rain, in the 46 degree weather. Just marvelous! My dad had come down to my house to sit since Grant was still in bed sleeping so I called him and told him the deal. Now you have to know my dad. He is Mr. Practical and Perfect. You'd think he never makes a mistake because he SURE doesn't let one slide if anyone else makes one. Sure enough, I have to tell him that not only am I stuck on the side of the road...but that I am only wearing a nightie and slippers! He had to go get Grant up and come "rescue" me. Imagine my embarrasement as I climb into his big deisel truck in my sexy jammies! Anyway, Matt ended up coming home from work and he and my dad changed the tire. It turned out I had this big peice of pipe or something sticking in it (picture a metal straw) which is why the air went out SO quickly. Anyhow...that was my Monday morning. Fun, Fun!

Hahahaaaa...I'm sorry girl, but that is FUNNY! I had to double check and make sure I wasn't on "Logzie's Page"! haha I thought that stuff only happened to her! :)
That would probably be my luck to. I get dressed every morning to take Levi to school...the one morning I don't I would bet something like that would happen.

Thanks for sharing this story with us, and making us all giggle today (as we cringe..praying that wont ever happen to us!) haha
Love ya girlfriend!
