HEY...when did you grow up??? i wanna cry... i don't...but i wanna...she tells me she ran into my dad's brother-he told her those words every girl hates to hear...especially this girl...

Last night was interesting... work went relatively smoothly....which considering we have big shots from corporate office in, and are installing a new thing that we are all trying to learn...i say that is a miracle... i was out of work by 11...decent time considering... coming home, i took a back road that i don't often take, and was rewarded by seeing 2 deers..it was awsome...they were only like 5 feet away, and showed no fear of me being there...just looked at me and what looked like them talking... was too cute... my dad was a avid dear watcher... he just loved them... so this was an extra blessing for me... and then down the road a bit...it happens... the one thing everyone hates to see..red and blue lights...flashing behind YOU...uhg... i wasn't speeding... i wasn't swerving... so i pull over... roll down my window, and put my hands on the wheel and waited... he comes up to the window about a minute later...WOW..he is a hunk...i don't know what i did, but he could of hand cuffed me anytime... uh... i did not just say that...*blush* anyways... he asked for my liscence...i told him i had it in my pocket and moved slowly so i wouldn't get shot... i do feel sorry for these police officers and know that they always have to be on guard..anyways, i give him my liscence...then he asks where i was going...why on earth do they always ask that??? why do they need to know?? i mean heck...if i was getting ready to go do something illegal, would i actually say so??? lol luckily i do have more sence not to use my quirky sense of humor to these nice gentlemen in urniform...anyways...so i tell him i am just getting off work and was on my way home... in which he asked how far that was... so i answer him, just in the next little township 5 minutes away.... he tells me my tags are expired...EXPIRED??? oh no... it was my birthday a couple weeks ago, wasn't it... i told him i had just gone back to night shift and my mind was still trying to catch up and that had totally slipped my mind...so he asks about my driving record... which is almost perfect...and i told him so...only thing was driving without insurance a year and a half ago, which was remedied and never to be repeated, but i still had those points... but besides for that, nothing... no speeding ticket, no accidents..nothing... he then asked for my proof of insurance...in which of course, wouldn't it be the funniest thing...i didn't have i have insurance, and i had the receipt that says i paid for it, but didn't have the insurance card...so i did give the receipt to him, and he takes it back to the car...now let's back track a bit..i also forgot my cell phone at home yesterday...so no way to call anyone... after checking my driving record..he comes back with only my liscense and insurance receipt in hand... smiles at me..and oh what a smile..sparkled even in the dead of night..and i swear...those lights i seen flashing didn't look quite so red and blue any more... more like white warm sparks...and then he says, you do realize this is a towable offence... at that point, i didn't know whether to cry or ask if this would also get me hand cuffed...lol...ok ok.. so on with this...i said no Sir, i didn't... he said he was letting me off with a warning, to go straight home and get it taken care of asap...i promised i would first thing this morning... and trully...i just wanted to get out of the car and hug him..real close...but ok, so i wanted to do that even before he gave me that wonderful news...lol... i mean this guy was..uh la la...today my mom and i are taking daughter to get her temps...so while there...i'm going to go ahead and get those tags...the next time i run into the nice police officer, i want it without me being illegal
oh..and i lost 4 pounds... so all in all...yea...it was a wonderful night.

You know...i don't think of myself as "old" and i have always refrained from saying things such as "well back in my day" but..it finally came out this morning.... i said those exact words... i was going through town to take kids to church, and i noticed the gas station open, in fact the gas had been lowered to $3.09....then i look across the street to the drug store.... yep, open.... and then McDonalds... open?! i must have had a funny look on my face cause the kids asked what was up...it was then the words popped out of my mouth...i don't know what i was more shocked at...that i said "well back in my day" or the fact that everything was business as usual.... i guess i've kept myself hidden from the changing times.... but honestly, back in my day..... businesses were not open on Sunday...much less a holiday....my eldest told me that gas stations HAD to be open...but, i said, back in my day....they weren't....to which she promptly asked what happened if someone ran out of gas...what if someone broke down the other daughter asked....uh...let's start with the last question first... these days, most gas stations don't even fix cars...they just sell convientant store stuff and gas.... so this dispells that question...as for running out of gas... well...back in my day...you just planned.... filling up the car was done before the holiday and/or sunday.... if you didn't...oh well...that was poor planning on their part....
now...i'm not saying i don't use these places...the fact is...i stopped at McDonalds to get kids a cappicino and me a coffee...black...strait up.... and i will be stopping at the gas station later to get a case of water for dinner at mom's.... who knows...while i'm out....maybe i'll just do some grocery shopping..... ok...maybe not.... i do feel sorry for those that do have to work today... and really...the guilt as i darnk my coffee and thought, you know, back in my day.....
