Terrible Thursday!

Well Thursday was the day my Mom, sister and myself were leaving on our trip to a family wedding in Akron, Ohio and I was suppose to be ready to leave by 12:30 p.m. I had to go into work because I was in charge of the Easter Worship pages which consisted of almost three full pages of advertising and I had to finish them before I could leave.

I got up real early Thursday morning after doing most of my packing the night before (I was determined to be ready!) - colored my hair - got food ready to go on the trip - got myself dressed in my fairly new beige boot cut pants (Kik approves of) and thought I had better touch up my toenail polish because I was wearing sandals - because it was warm here - took the bottle in my hand and shook it several times as I realized something terrible had happened - the top to the nailpolish was broken - came off - and red nail polish was going all over me - my nice pants - my stomach - my arms (didn't have my top on yet)- across my bed comforter (which fortunately is red) - my white nightstand - my white bookcase and books - and of course the light beige rug!!!!! - these are the moments when even at my age you realize once again that you ARE the grown-up and your Mom is not coming to clean it up and you had better figure it out real quick because it was fast drying polish.

The next hour and a half was spent scrubbing the rug mainly - as I live in a rented townhome and didn't want this to ruin my relationship with my landlord - and then everything else. What a mess!!! I had to use nail polish remover as that was all I had - couldn't get it out of my pants though so they are ruined.

Got to work late - had a myriad of problems - didn't leave work until 3:30 PM - didn't get on the road until 4:30 PM - feeling very guilty - with no way of making it better - but we all got through it.

The wedding was wonderful - the weather was c-o-l-d - 22 and 26 degrees - snow on Sat. morning and snow going through the West Virginia mountains yesterday - but it was great seeing family and being with everyone.

I am so sorry about your nail polish mishap! (But I did sneak a chuckle as I could just imagine you with no shirt on, on your hands and knees, scrubbing RED nail polish out of your rug w/ nail polish remover... you can see the comedy, right?) LTY, e

One of my life mottos is from a movie with Rob Lowe and John Belushi that I can't remember the title to - anyway - Belushi yells at Lowe - "Don't ever lose your sense of humor!" over and over at the top of his lungs - and I will never lose my sense of humor or my ability to "bend like bamboo"!!! of course you can chuckle - I know I will provide many more opportunities!!!!

Oh my...that is aweful!! I really thought that stuff only happens to me! I guess it feels that way for everyone when it is actually happening to them. I'm so sorry!!

Glad things got better and you had fun anyway. Aren't those W.Virginia mountains breathtaking? I LOVE them!
