My husband and I took the kids to have family pictures made a couple of years ago. My, even at 3 years old, comedian daughter decided to show off. First, I was standing in the entrance way, FACING a room full of people, dressed in nice clothing, and she lifts my dress above her head, exposing my spanx to the room. Then, while we were taking pictures, she kept doing things to get attention, including grabbing my necklace. In one pic, it looks like she is literally choking me, lol. Then, we sit down to look at the pictures and choose some and she says to our male photographer, "you're a FANCY boy aren't you?" We had been talking at home about how she was a fancy girl because she was all dressed for pics. My husband and I almost died. LOL.
My best friend and I went to visit a guy I had been dating at UK. We got to UK and drove around looking for the dorm he was in but had no luck. We stopped at the only dorm we could find to ask for help. When we went in the dorm, the guys standing around told us there was no dorm named what we were looking for. In fact, they said there were only 3 dorms. We were confused because we thought there would be more than 3 dorms at UK and we were sure he hadn't lied to us about the name of the dorm. But, we went to the other two dorms anyway. When we got to the final dorm, they asked, "well, what is his name?" We told them. They assured us there was no one by that name in this dorm. So I said "I KNOW he goes to UK." They said "well this is KY State." It's not even in the same city. We were at the wrong college. We went out to the car to drive to the right college (and the right city) and low and behold, I had locked the keys in the car. We went back in and had someone come out to help us get into the car. He pulled the car window out enough that my friend could put her hand in and unlock the door. As she was pulling her hand out, the window shattered. We had to drive home, 1 hour, in the cold of November, with no car window. Then, I had to make up a story to my parents as to why the window shattered because I wasn't supposed to be there in the first place.View Thread
I love the story about you sneaking to the Great Escape!! I hung out on Bardstown Rd (which is where it is) all the time in high school. I thought I was a hippie (and thought I was cool at that, lol). Do you mean Twice Told Book Store? It was the best. I love Bardstown Rd! We haven't had a real snowfall yet, just a light dusting, not even enough to stick. My daughter was so disappointed. And yes, I remember the snowfall of '94 like yesterday. I was snowed in at my cousin's house and we had a blast until we were over it and then wanted to kill each other. Its a small world.
I saw on the main board you are having a bad night, I'm so sorry hun! I wish I could cheer you up. Christmas and the celebrations have been hard for me this year too and I try to find joy in everything I can. The posts on here have been great reminders, actually...and so is my 5 year old's anticipation for Santa . I hope you enjoyed dinner with your husband and guests and that you have a worry free, joyfilled Christmas day.View Thread
I'm trying to lighten up...like having a glass of wine (or 3) and saying damn when I'm frustrated (instead of gradually getting furious and baging my head on the wall and throwing things like a maniac)oh and laughing at funny jokes and participating in them. I used to be funny. Anyway, enough about me. Let's talk about you guys more. Maybe I'll get around to answering the actual post some day, lol!View Thread
Trigger* I'm from Louisville, born and raised, and my husband and I are still here. I also am a "good Christian girl" who recently lost my mind. Oh the stigma there...especially since the losing my mind part involved God and demons. That's one of the reasons I love this board and have told only 3 people (including my hubs) about my illness in my life. I'm supposed to be this together goody two shoes. My new counselor asked "Do you think you went too far in the opposite direction and now you're burnt out?" Uhhh, yeah. I am a believer though. Too bad other people got to witness my almost comical break. The one person (who I love very much) who witnessed most of what happened told me that fear took over and lack of faith caused this relapse. For months, I was clearly out of my mind and she never once suggested I get help other than prayer and I, of course, did not realize how out of my mind I was until I came down. I just kept getting worse as a result. Sometimes people in the church have such closed views on mental illness. Oh well, I'll stop rambling now. It helps me remember to take my meds...that I need to take them, lol.
I am sorry to hear about your father. I am glad he is doing well and hope he is able to enjoy the holidays. My heart hurts for you.
I hope you have a merry Christmas too and a Happy New Year!View Thread
