Only Julie Strikes Again

So McMama has Not Me! Monday... Today is Yes Me! Wednesday... Let's just say my morning started off less than perfect. Only Julie strikes again!!!... I woke up an hour early because I had a meeting bright and early... As I stumbled around trying to get dressed I am not even quite sure how my make up went on straight. I fumbled with one earring and as it fell to the floor and crashed into a million pieces I went on to the next set... wellllll as I fumbled with it trying to stick it in my ear it broke in half... good thing these weren't my diamonds! I tried to find another set, but the clock was ticking along... We had a great meeting at the Westin Galleria. Great breakfast, met some new clients, yada yada... well, so we pack everything up and I am in charge of carrying this large box of miniature commercial real estate signs... made of wood and nails. They are about one feet tall... okay... so I am in my high heels and very sleepy... as we get to the escalator I just cannot figure out how to get down it. So I set the box on the escalator step and....... yep, they tumble down the whole thing breaking off legs and landing at the bottom. People come running out thinking we've fallen down the stairs! They stop the thing and I am quickly trying to fix my mess. My boss stands there with his arms folded staring at me. Oops?

I had a blessed night last night... I am going to tell the world because it is just a small portrait of how we can think no one cares about us when there are people out there thinking of you and you have no idea!!! First, I get a call from a sorority sister that's been my friend for eight years. Kasey Hicks. We don't talk often... in fact, I didn't have her number anymore. She calls to invite me to her wedding! We ended up talking about an hour about life! I told her if she of all people can settle down... I can... This girl has been a missionary and traveled all over the world never thinking to stop and date. She met Mike and it all fit together...

Then Kale Steed calls... Kale was my photographer when I was an intern at KCBD in college. He is now on air in Amarillo. We talked forever just catching up as well!!! Nothing like old friends...

Then I'm on the treadmill watching "The Biggest Loser" just lost in it wondering who gets voted off when Brittany Roberson Brock calls... Brittany and I have been friends since we were born and she was my roomie in Stangel as freshmen. I hooked her and her husband, Lance up in fifth grade... yep... They were Head Cheerleader and Quarterback in high school - how cliche and adorable is that! I take full responsibility... ummm yeah... We catch up every now and then, but we hadn't talked in a few months.

It just made me smile to talk to old friends. God has a good sense of humor to make me smile when the night before I was just utterly depressed about my economic future (because I am so tired of hearing over and over about how the economy is going to eat my wallet). Atleast we have love!

Nick informed me last night he is taking me to a place downtown called St. Vincents for my birthday. I am very excited. He says it is very expensive and we don't do that often, but this calls for celebration. I would be happy going to Furrs... okay...maybe not, but I don't care about how much a place costs as long as I am in good company! One time in junior high or high school I made my parents go to Taco Villa. Ahhh I love it! What a great birthday dinner... I heart Taco Villa!

The celebration is still underway for Friday night... I've had some really great surprising friends say they are coming. I am very thrilled to see them. My Dad and Brenda are coming next weekend!!! They haven't been here in a while... I need to figure out how to entertain them? Brenda likes a clean house so I must scrub and scrub... I need a maid ;). Brittany was telling me Lance had a job before where they could spend crazily and have all of those luxuries, but he was never ever home... Now he has a "normal" job and they cannot do that, but he is actually home and she gets to enjoy their marriage. I think I vow for number two. Money means nothing if there is no relationship. Back to the point... I love to visit my family.

Maybe if I take a nap I won't be so clutzy...

Good thing I like to smile.
