Long time between posts...

I'm not sure I have gone so long between posts in quite a while... but our life is CRAZY! I'll try to touch the highlights of the week.
M--I teach a night class at CJC.

Are you seeing the pattern??? Our life revolves around church and softball right now. I enjoy the games and I know it is good for the kids, but we didn't get home a single night before 9pm... and then all I have the energy to do is crawl into bed. Dr. Reinmund should have warned me that the recovery from the big 'H' was going to take the entire 6 wks, if not more. I'm exhausted by the time my head hits the pillow!

I do have a funny/scary story from the other night. I went to United at about 10:45 Friday night and this toothless, black woman came to my window and asked for a ride home. I, of course, said yes, but I called my husband 'just in case' something happened. Well, this little woman tells me how God is going to bless me and was a sweet as can be. She originally told me she lived in ACU apartments and to drive down 10th. Well, we pass ACU apartments and she says that the house she needs to go to isnt ACU, but she tells people that so they wont be scared... huh??? Then she has me turn onto Carver street. Well, for those who don't know Abilene, Carver street is not a street I want to be on during any part of the day... it's not a safe neighborhood with the sun out, much less at 11pm at night. I called Rt and told him what street I was turning onto, then she told me to keep going down the road... we get to the end of the street and there are these two men in hoodies standing on the corner that she told me to stop at in front of a house that is all boarded up. So I stop a little ways back and unlock the doors to let her open hers, and then quickly lock them again. Before she got out of my car she asked if I had cash to spare, which I didn't because I don't carry cash, and then she mentioned debit or credit... like I was going to hand that over... I played dumb with that one too! Anyway, I spoke to one of my friends the next day and she told me the woman was harmless, but I can't help but be a little freaked out. Surely those men weren't planning to rob me.... surely she is a good person and had no intentions of hurting me... but when you put it all together it is a little freaky.... maybe I just watch too much CSI. Anyway, I'm alive, but a little freaked out. I called the police station just to let them know what had happened as I was concerned that she was setting me up for something icky on that dark road with the two men in hoodies and the lady at the police station told me "no good deed goes unpunished" and it makes me very sad to say that I won't be picking up anymore little old women who complain of gout anymore!

Edit: I just told my mom the story and got in more trouble than I think I have ever been in! Apparently this is a scam that has been going on and I am sooo in trouble! Thank God my angels were working overtime! :)

I think you did the right thing. But isn't it sad that we feel we are doing the right thing and it isn't or even more worrisome, we don't do something because we are afraid of the consequences. Glad you are safe.
