Scaring myself

Craig and I just dropped Tess and Brita off at the airport.  I left Craig at work and came home to only Maggie.  We left at 3:30 and I walked in the door about 7:30.   Tess needed me to text her a number that she had forgotten so she could make connections in Munich. Walking in the house, I realized my cell phone wasn't anywhere, so I picked up the house phone and called - to find it.  Finally found it under the seat in the car.  Came in, started to text Tess then saw the missed call light.  I opened it, thinking it was Craig or the girls.  It was our home phone.  This was scary!   I looked at the time again and it was just minutes before I walked in, or close to it.    Sheesh, someone was in the house using our home phone - calling me; probably.....um, my mind is racing, my heart thumping and my hands tingling.  Nothing has made my adrenaline spurt like this in a while!   I was almost ready to call Craig to see if he might be playing tricks or know something I didn't.  Right before I dialed, it hit my brain with a thunk,  parting the cloud.  It was me, calling my cell phone, remember?   Called Craig anyways, to see if he thought it was just as funny.  It's our 20th anniversary tomorrow, hope he will stay married to me even if I have some extremely short, short- term memory loss? Here's the deal.  We all know I'm REALLY NOT A MORNING PERSON!      :)

Oh Kathleen! That is so funny! I can really relate. I'm the person who looks everywhere for my sunglasses when all the while they are on my head! At least you got a good laugh this morning. :)
love, Amber

I will really miss you on FB, I know that its not as real as we would like sometimes. But I am not looking for FB to be the total interaction. I have a 40hr job, a house, husband and my church in mount vernon, I often morn for loss of relationship with people out side the valley...partially my own fault. I am busy and usually exhausted after work and the weekends are for me and Jon to catch up, sense he now commutes to Lynnwood everyday. As sad as it might be FB makes me feel connected to some degree, I can't wait for you to come back. Love you! Really.
Hugs,
Amber S.

I'll come back babygirl. You are good at 'conversational dialogue'...like Rhonda, Chris, Amber Lowe, Jenny, Laurie, Sue, Bree and Pam. It's all about the 2 way street! Love my girlfriends and love to read your interesting thoughts also....
