Did you think to Pray?

Oops, I must have forgotten to pray this morning...I had a day. First off at 8:30 this morning, the cops (AKA piggies) were setting up their sting operation for the morning and I just happened to be a victim of the sting. One cop was in the road directing traffic...bangs on my window and tells me to pull over in the school parking lot behind the other cop...OKAY, I do what I am told. The first cop told me they were checking kids seatbelts...mine always wear theirs so I wasn't worried and besides, it was just me, Jenner and Grady. I'm Waiting, Waiting, Waiting...Finally I decide to send Grady into school because it's now 8:40 and school has started. Here comes second cop...I unroll my window and he proceeds to tell me..."I am issuing you a citation for seatbelt violations." What the Crap? I explain to him that something must be wrong because we all wear our seatbelts...he doesn't care to hear my whining and continues to say, "My associate (other cop) sent you over to me because you violated the seatbelt law and now you are getting a ticket." By this time I am so shocked I don't know what to do, and I am a little embarassed (I'm not wearing a bra, HEHEHE)...I get my TICKET and go home and I am fuming mad...CAN YOU BELIEVE IT???...those little piggies are so sly with their little operation. My only guess was that Grady stood up when the cop knocked on my window, and he just wanted to see what was going on. The cop egged it on and I was angry. Well, Grady admitted to me after school that he wasn't wearing his seatbelt and so yes, I am at fault but the whole way it went down ticks me off ...really?...really? I don't even know how the cop SAW his seatbelt was off, we have tinted windows and I seriously think he was guessing about it too. BTW, I saw SEVERAL, I mean SEVERAL cars where there were umteen kids packed in on top of eachother that DID NOT get pulled over.....um, maybe the piggie thought I was cute...yeah, that's it!



Another event of the day, Grady brought home his spelling pre-test and this is what I found...he was supposed to spell us but ended up spelling..._ss! I think he just wanted to spell a naughty word and tried to get away with it...funny!

My next endeavor involved me, Taylor recent x-ray, and Dr. S....when the Dr. checked Taylor's x-ray today on her wrist he said everything looked great, he then proceeded to point to a different bone than the one she broke. I called him on it and he said, "Oh no, she definitely broke this one up here..." Me, "ARE YOU SURE?"....him, "Yes"...me "can we check the last x-ray to see how much she has progressed?" Guess what? I was right, he was showing me a totally different bone and I think he felt a little STUPID when I called him on it. That's right...I'm cute and I am as smart as a Dr.


On the upside...we potty trained Jenner today!

Just Kidding! She only likes to sit on the potty before bath but after she already peed on the floor....
Disclaimer: I forgot to pray and my day ended up like this...but I forget to pray everyday and my days aren't all like this...HMMMMM?

Oh my gosh, so funny! Okay, so not so funny about the ticket... but I can't stop laughing over the @$$ and I'll bet his teacher got a good chuckle over it too. I'm so glad to hear I'm not the only one with days like that - maybe I need to think to pray... : )

So sorry! I had a cop experience similar to yours. I was moving along and I saw all of these cops. The car in front of me just kept going and I slowed down. Slow enough that they walked out into the street and signaled me over. I had just been to my last Dr's appointment just before delivering twins, and he told me I was speeding! What? I probably was going 5 over, but I was just moving along with the flow of traffic and since I slowed down, I guess I was an easy target. They didn't bother to get the person in front of me or behind me. So here I am 8 months pregnant with twins, sick, and hormones out of whack. I totally started crying. And the cop still gave me a ticket. I couldn't believe it. What a jerk! That was the only time I ever cried and I still got a ticket.
