I worked for 12 long hours!
When I got home I went with my neighbor to a Planning and Zoning hearing.
(I'm just trying to stay current with some neighborhood proposals.)
When I got home at 11:00 P.M. I found myself in a very uncomfortable predicament.
#1. My better half is still in Canada.
#2. My house and yard is DARK!
#3. I didn't take my cell phone to the P&Z meeting.
#4. I didn't take my purse or keys cuz I rode with my neighbor.
#5. My doors are all locked!
I never lock my doors except when the better half is gone.
So here I am alone.
In the dark.
After a LONG day.
Just for the record, I did NOT say a swear word.
So I did what any other insane person would do.
I got the ladder out of the garage.
Went to the very back window.
Had a panic attack..........I'm terrified of heights, even if it's only two stories.
Had another panic attack.....I'm terrified of spiders and there might be spiders up there. (I loathe spiders!)
Had another panic attack......cuz what if I fall off the ladder and break something and no one finds me for days?
Had another panic attack thinking that my husband would have the nerve to get another wife after the funeral was over!!!!!
So weak-kneed I climbed to the top of the Empire State Building. (Ok I exaggerate a little.)
I really tried to take out the screen. Really.
I broke a nail even.
I realized that the longer I stayed WAY UP THERE, the greater the chance I had of crashing to the ground.
I put my fist through the screen, slid open the window and somersaulted onto the guest bed.
I felt sorta like Harrison Ford.
It sorta felt good to bust a screen.
See, I told ya it was way up there!
My hubby got home and said he's gonna buy me a chain with my house key to wear around my neck.
Isn't he a giver?
On Friday evening I did some engagement photos for a gal I work with.
I was nervous, but I had a blast.
Does it get better than a wheat field?
I also sorta went camera crazy with this old homestead!
I loved it!
We did some fun pictures with the engaged couple here too.
Then on my way home I had to stop and take a few pictures of this:
Saturday we enjoyed a huge family reunion.
We were there honoring and celebrating my mother-in-laws 90th Birthday!
She's an amazing woman.
She lost her husband 31 years ago and has buried 4 of her 10 children.
She is strong, faithful and uplifting to anyone she is around.
Happy Birthday Mom!
I am now hoping for a boring week.
A warning to all icky stalkers and creepy people:
My hubby is home, we have a gun, I now lock my door and I know how to use sharp objects!
