I'm not sure if you could tell or not, but all the snowing that's been going on this week has maybe-kinda-sorta gotten to me. It seemed like it blizzarded (is, too, a word!) straight for 3 days. On the third day, I boycotted shoveling my driveway. My house is facing North. That means that no matter what time of day it is, my driveway is ALWAYS in the shadows. It never sees sunlight. (My driveway is probably really depressed and needs prozac, or light therapy or something). Anyway, so now it's covered in a nice thick sheet of ice. So, don't come visit me. I don't want you to fall on your rear, and then sue me.
I'm going through a bit of a fugly frump stage this week. You remember my cute $4 hat I got in FL?
Well, it has now become a permanent fixture on top of my head. SWEEET! A new excuse NOT to do my hair. I now have perma-hat-head. I've also been sporting the just crawled-out-of-bed-baggy-sweatshirt-and-flip-flops look all week. (By the way, Annette, all these hyphens are in your honor ☺)
I need some kind of motivation to break out of the fugly, and back into being cute. Any ideas?
I got in a high speed car chase this week. This story probably deserves it's own post, but since I didn't post it the day of, I'll just do it here:
I was picking up my daughter from tumbling on Wednesday. The parking lot at tumbling is INSANE. It is a complete clusterflup. (You're welcome, by the way, for not using the actual word that I wanted to there). It is mass chaos, complete mayhem, total pandemonium. I was backing out of a parking space. There were about 4 cars among the 50 in the row behind me that had their reverse lights on. I paused, decided it was my turn, and started to back out. There was also an arrogant idiotic dumb ass that was double parked illegally along behind the rows of cars. I saw him, proceeded to back out, and he honked at me. Ok, I guess I got too close for his comfort, so I pulled away. He honked again and pulled out behind me. I got out to the stop sign to turn on the road. He started honking and flashing his lights at me. I started to get a little scared, because, I was CERTAIN that I hadn't hit him. I would've felt it if I'd hit someone, so I just kept going. He tailed me, right on my bumper, flashing his headlights at me, acting like a maniac, following my every move. I was freaked, because,first of all, there's no way I'm stopping now because if I did, he's either going to shoot me, or beat me up. And I had my kids in the car with me. As I turned onto the main road in town, I had the choice to stay in the right lane, and get on the freeway, or go straight, toward home. Well, I didn't want the freak to follow me to my house, so I jumped on the freeway, and gunned it. Now, I was driving maniacally, weaving in and out of traffic, going 80 mph, trying to lose the dude. I drove all the way to the next town over before I got off, and weaved through the back streets back to my home town. I figured if he really cared, he could get my license plate number. He'd been close enough to me for long enough, he couldn't gotten it. Well, sure enough, 3 hours later the cops showed up at my door. Luckily, one of them was a girl in my ward, and they heard my side of the story and kind of laughed it off. Apparently, according to the freak, I had hit him and one of his headlights was broken. Funny, I didn't feel a thing.
Also, On Wednesday night I drove down to Provo with my parents and my sister. I went to watch my brother, Spencer, who goes to BYU, open an envelope. It was VERY exciting!
The crazy part is that he has to report to the MTC in Preston, England, instead of Provo.
He leaves in May. I'm excited for him, but sad to see him go. No more jam sessions with my favorite composing/arranging buddy.
And now....(drum roll please)......A GIVEAWAY!!!!
I finally got around to designing a temporary cover for my CD. I did it for the MMB giveaway from last month. I'm also giving a CD away on Annette Lyon's blog. I also put a Paypal button on my website, so if anyone wants to pre-order the real thing when it gets released, you can.
So, this post is my 299th post. And sometime around last month was my 1 year blogiversary. So, I decided it's about time for a Bloggy giveaway.
