It's Going to Be A Marvelous Day, but Aren't They All?

Whoa Baby! Today is October 4th....and a remarkable day in history! 58 years ago today.....my parents were blessed with a rather plump little baby girl.....ME! I can't believe I am 58 years old today. How the heck did that happen? I feel like I'm about 40...but then I guess that isn't possible when my daughter just turned 35 now is it?

I hope to do a Giveaway of some kind this week in honor of my birthday...so stay tuned.

I was up early this morning making a couple of signs for the craft show booth and then I need to run to Walmart for some more candy....it went over well yesterday...although I think Irv ate a lot of it!

I had insomnia last night. It could have been caused by the excitement of the craft show, but I really think it was the Chocolate Chip Paradise Pie from Chile's that I had for dessert last night....and I only ate half of it!

While I was laying in bed awake at about 11:30 p.m. my phone rang. It scared the heck out of me. Needless to say when I picked it up to see who it was it took a moment for my eyes to adjust....it was Matt. Then I was really scared....he doesn't usually call that late.

He was at the bar with some friends and his Search and Rescue pager went off! It said to meet at their lockers at 6:30 a.m. and to dress for snow and wind. He immediately left the bar and was on his way home when he called me. He needed to get his stuff together and get some sleep. He has no idea what the call is, but it's in a neighboring county about an hour away. He is thinking maybe a lost hiker....I told him good luck and that I will be hoping for a happy ending to the story! I will let you know.

With that, I am going to go finish my signs and get ready for Day Two of the show! Have a wonderful day everyone!

That really stops your heart when the phone rings at odd times like that...I had a hang up call at 1:30 a.m. on Friday, scared me to death! Hope all goes well.
