Dusting off the Blog

Okay, really I have so much stuff I could blog about. And I should since it's been nearly three months since an update. I really just wanted to post a fantastic laugh I had at myself today. See, I'm one who is always saying the wrong thing at the wrong time or doing something embarrassing. I've always been like that. Therefore, I am not embarrassed easily. For me, doing stupid stuff is just part of living. But today even I was mortified.

I was in Brewton, AL today attending a function at a local restaurant with the ladies at my church. Afterward I went into Walmart to grab a few things. The weather here has been super hot (heat indexes >107F) and there hasn't been a cloud in the sky (somewhat unusual). So the instant I walked out of the store I was fishing for my sunglasses. While walking I stuck them on my face and started looking for my car (cus I always forget where I park). When I put the sunglasses on I felt very slightly disoriented, but nothing unusual. I mean, we all get spells where we get barely dizzy and don't know why. As I walked to the car, I noticed people sort of staring. I wasn't sure why. I was sort of dressed up; everyone else that I saw in the store was wearing t-shirts. I figured that was the reason for the stares.

So, next stop was the gas station ... because gas is always cheaper in Brewton ... way cheaper. I pulled up to the pump and waited for the man who was currently pumping gas to finish. He kept staring too ... like over and over. I waved at him. He didn't respond. I thought, "People just aren't friendly these days." He finished up and I hopped out of my car and began fueling. Now really, the place is crowded. Well, crowded for Brewton. I finish up and hop back in the car. As I pulled off I caught a glimpse of myself in the rear-view mirror and *gasp* I discovered why all the people were staring. And I discovered why I'd felt sort of disoriented when I put my glasses on.

I know you're dying to know what it was, aren't you?

Well, it's because THIS is what I looked like!!!

Yeah, that really happened.
I really want to get back to blogging. I have been checking in on the blogs I follow, although I seldom comment. There are so many things to share. Hopefully, we'll get to that soon!

That is too funny! I was trying to think what could it be. I was guessing maybe the sunglasses were upside down.

I was guessing you had the kids glasses on but this is even better:-)
