Love, American Style …

Today I was sitting in my car at a red light and I had a childhood memory pop into my head. I have no idea what triggered the memory but it certainly made me smile.

There was a show that my mom would watch when I was very little. It aired from 1969 to about 1974 so I was about 6 years old at the end of its run. It was on past my bedtime but my mom would tell me that I could stay up, if I laid down on the couch, to watch it. Which was the greatest thing EVER. But I kid you not, not one time did I ever stay awake past the opening credits. HA! I would always fall asleep! I am pretty sure that my mom planned for that but she also new how to make me happy. She was awesome that way.

Well, I hope you all have a day where you experience LOVE, AMERICAN STYLE!!!

A better wake up call …

There is nothing like getting a call at 4:17 am telling you that the flight you thought booked for your daughter (Libs, who is a minor) for 6 am TODAY was actually booked for NEXT TUESDAY. Ugh. I knew that when my computer GLITCHED OUT, when I booked the darn flight, that there had to be a problem. It happened right at the end when I was paying for the flight, and sadly, I didn’t notice it. Anyway, I was told that I had approximately 8 minutes to correct my mistake or Libs might not get on the flight! Needless to say, I went from completely asleep to a total panic and then to the fastest sprint of my life to my computer. It all worked out and her flight was rebooked. But I think I stressed out every system my body has, doing it. This is DEFINITELY not how you ever want to start your day. Trust. Me.

Well, I hope you all have a day where you get a better wake up call!!!
