It's Raining, It's Pouring.....

Today was one of those days at work - It wasn't a bad day, I just didn't want to be there. So around 4:30 I had enough and just HAD to get out of there. Of course, it had just started raining and I didn't bring my umbrella in (although, I considered it when I got out of the car this morning). As I'm walking down the stairs I notice out the window that the rain was pretty heavy and the guys in front of me stopped at the door and one said, "I'll just wait this out". But not me! I couldn't be in that building one minute longer. Surely it can't be that bad. So I take off, walking fast at first, but then realize that it's POURING down rain. so I start to run, thinking the whole time, "dang how far did I park?!" then remembering I parked at the very end of the lot - because I'm trying to be more "healthy" and walk more! UGH! Of all days to do that! By the time I got to my car I was dripping wet and I mean dripping -hair, shirt, pants EVERYTHING! So I get in the car and guess what? Yep - it wouldn't start! So I have to sit in the car for at least 10 more minutes! Of course I had to twitter it and I was laughing the whole time because by that time it had stopped raining, the sun was out AND it was 5:00 when I left the parking lot, which by the way is the time I normally leave. I'm just glad I can laugh at stuff like that!
Now for the reason I had to sit for 10 minutes until the car started - after reading a bit in the owners manual of my car and doing a little research on the trusty Internet I've found that sometimes in a Grand Am, the Passlock anti-theft device goes a little haywire and you have to reset it by turning the key to "on" and sitting for ten minutes. so now, I have to figure out how to fix it.....

Those that wait on the Lord

I heard this song on the way to work this morning.
I'm waiting
I'm waiting on You, Lord
And I am hopeful
I'm waiting on You, Lord
Though it is painful
But patiently, I will wait

I will move ahead, bold and confident
Takeing every step in obedience
While I'm waiting
I will serve You
While I'm waiting
I will worship
While I'm waiting
I will not faint
I'll be running the race
Even while I wait

I'm waiting
I'm waiting on You, Lord
And I am peaceful
I'm waiting on You, Lord
Though it's not easy
But faithfully, I will wait
Yes, I will wait
I will serve You while I'm waiting
I will worship while I'm waiting
I will serve You while I'm waiting
I will worship while I'm waiting
I will serve you while I'm waiting
I will worship while I'm waiting on You, Lord

God is good! and Faithful so I will wait!

She's not wicked!

We were talking about Mother’s Day at work yesterday and someone asked me “Is Mother’s Day hard for you?” I told them that it used to be but not really any more. I mean don’t get me wrong, I think about my mom every day and especially on Mother’s Day but like I told them at work, I am very blessed to have Diane. You hear horror stories about wicked step moms, but that is definitely NOT the case with mine. Seriously I don’t even like calling her my “step-mom” anymore! They honored her at church Sunday. The lady at their church asked me in the middle of service if I wanted to get up and say something – but since I like to be OVERLY prepared when I “say something” I had to decline – so now that I’ve had a little time to think about it I think that I probably would have mentioned

How great she is
How much I love how she loves my dad.
I would have agreed with Lori when she said she is the rock of our family.
I would have said that she’s amazing in the way she is always so calm about stressful situations.
I don’t think I’ve ever heard her raise her voice and when there’s conflict or stress around you can always count on her to calm you down.
I know that if I am worried about something I can always call her and she can put things in perspective and make me feel better about the situation.
I love her love for music!

I know I could mention much more but maybe I'll save that for her birthday blog.....
We definitely weren’t the easiest kids to raise! And even now we can still be difficult! But I hope she knows I love her and I couldn’t ask for a better “second-mom”

I recently had to get my star tat on my foot redone (some say it's because of my "porous" feet). I'm glad it was just a small star and not something like this!!!

Not Broken just Sprained

Some one asked me the other day if my blogger was broken - I didn't realize that I hadn't blogged in a while. Some thoughts about the weeks passed...

Went to the Balloon Glow. We will tailgate ANYTHING! but I do believe we started something. People were looking and I bet they were wondering why they didn't think of that! Took pictures.

Knew LOTS of people running the KDF Mini Marathon. Papaw Tom lives right around the starting line, so it's always fun to go. The news even interviewed him and now he thinks he's a star! People I hadn't seen in a few years were yelling, "Kelley!" while they were running. Took pictures.

Went to the track on Wed before Derby with some girls I used to work with. We call it Phillies Day, even thought it's not Oaks day. Had fun, didn't cash one ticket. Took pictures.

Went to a friends house that has a Derby party every year. Bet on the Derby but didn't win although, I seriously thought about betting on that horse just for fun because of his name. Didn't take pictures.
