Friday! Today I spent a relaxing day with Sis and her sis-in-law,
Heidi. We had a nice lunch, shopped a bit, and picked up my nieces
On my way back to my parent's house, this obnoxious lady (in her brand
new Jaguar) peels out of her driveway and nearly broadsides me. I
jammed on the brakes and laid on my horn. She screeched to a stop...and
I swear her bumper was just inches from my driver's door. I stared
at her and she had the nerve to lay on her horn and mouth the word,
I was appauled!...no apology or a "oops, my bad" look. For
a second there, it made me wonder if I ran a stop sign or if she actually
had the right of way. So I pulled forward and after she got behind
me, I stopped my car. I very much wanted to get out of my car and
bitch her out. Sis, her sister-in- law, and all our kids looked at
me nervously. For a good three seconds, we all sat there quietly.
In the rear view, I saw the obnoxious lady waving her arms madly in
her car. *bite lip* I proceeded to drive, and the obnoxious lady attempted
to pass me on the right. So I pull to the right. She tries to pass
on the left. I pull to the left. I could tell that it was pissing
her off. Good! Stupid lady. We were only a couple of blocks
away from home (which means, she's an obnoxious neighbor), so when
I finally turned into my street, she roared by me with her foot heavy
on the gas. *ARGH!*
generally a nice person, but sometimes I'm scared by how much road
rage consumes me. So much anger without a single verbal exchange.
*shake head* How is that possible?! *Ugh!* My mom always reminds me
to be patient and calm in action, thought, and feeling... especially
now that I'm a "mom". Hmmmmm...funny, I don't feel like
a "mom". =P
Anyhow, obnoxious people like that will get theirs. I bet her new
Jag will get keyed up in the first week.
a bunch of us got together at Ivy and Oli's. We ordered World Wrapps,
played Trivial Pursuit, and watched movies. Ashlyn was spoiled with
attention. Mayu brought a bunch of toys over for her to play with.
But the best is when Paul tries to hold her....because Ashlyn always
bursts into tears. HAHAHA! I don't know why Ashlyn's so scared of
Ashlyn developed a really bad cough today. I must be the foul weather.
a great weekend!
