I have neglected this little blog 0' mine for a little over a week now and it really has nothing to do with being unusually busy and has everything to do with time management, or lack thereof. I do have lots of pictures that I will be posting later today (probably more like tonight...I told you, the time management thing...) of our fun-filled weekend.
The most exciting event that has happened to me lately is that I got pulled over for the second time in about four months. Actually, let's be honest, it wasn't exciting. I get incredibly nervous when I see the blue lights flash on and my mouth starts to get that watery feeling you get right before you throw-up. I also tend to lose control of my tearducts, which can be quite embarrassing since I'm pretty much a grown woman. (pretty much???)
After I got pulled over the first time, M to the Izz-A put me to sleep with his exponentially boring lecture on speed and the value in setting the cruise control. I assured him that I was going to try my hardest to make a change...for the slower. And for a while there I did very well.
I even mentioned to him recently that I was making progress in the area of speed control, that I was becoming a fan of hanging out around 55-60 mph zone, and that I was pretty proud of myself. However, sometimes I start thinking of other things (imagine that) and before I know it, I've kissed Mr. 55-60 goodbye. So when I looked in my rear view mirror and saw the cop slow down to whip his car around on the little two-lane road, I knew I was in trouble.
Not wanting to build up this big story and have a letdown of an ending, I'll tell you now that I didn't end up getting a ticket. Thank goodness.
After bragging to Matt about my mad skills at making everyday a slow Sunday drive, I absolutely could not have walked into our home with a ticket. Now that would have flown over like a lead balloon.
I just wanted to post a quick update. Stay tuned for the pics...
