You guys are awesome!  Thank you to everyone who sent me kind words yesterday.  My day was nothing short of icky, but today I awoke to a fresh day full of smiles.  I am surrounded by so many blessings and you all are definitely included in my list. :)

Since my post yesterday consisted of sadness, I wanted to share a few giggles with y'all (Texas!) today.

When Jorden turned 15 I took him to the DPS office to get his learner's permit.  He was so excited...and nervous.  We waited for two hours for his name to be called.  Once called, he had to take a test on the computer.  He happily passed the test and went on to take his picture for his permit.  He wanted to drive home, but there was no way I was letting him drive home on a super busy road.  I assured him once we got home I would let him drive around the neighborhood.  I pulled into our driveway, ran inside to get a drink, and then pulled my Suburban into the street so he could take me on a little scary joy ride.  He happily ran to the driver's side and climbed in.  I got in the passenger seat, buckled, and grabbed the door for dear life.  Suddenly he started pushing down hard on the gas pedal.  My Suburban was making that loud vroom sound.  I calmly asked him what he was doing.  He said, "I'm trying to make it go!"  I laughed hysterically and told him he had to put the car in drive first!  We still laugh over that!

The other day I was finishing up drying my hair.  I was wrapping the cord around my blow dryer and accidentally hit the dryer on my bathroom counter.  The end of the dryer popped off and bounced across the floor....all the way into the little room that houses the toilet.  It bounced all the way into the toilet.  I couldn't do that again if I tried!!  It stayed in there until my sweet husband came home.  I figured if he can cut people open and perform surgeries, he can stick his hand into a toilet and retrieve my blowdryer thingy!!  He wasn't as amused as I was....

My mother in law can crack us up sometimes.  Years ago, she bought an alarm clock at the Walgreens near her home.  She took it home and plugged it in.  She was baffled because no matter how many buttons she pushed she couldn't get it to change from 12:00.  She packed it back into the box and took it back to the store.  She told the clerk why she was returning it.  He nicely peeled the sticker off the front for her!!  Hee, Hee!!!!!

I'm seriously laughing out loud as I picture people reading my post and the reality being the case!! :)

Have a wonderful day filled to the brim with smiles and laughter!! xoxo
