So, it seems the joke was on me. The girls had brought presents as well. I got many nice things to use while " on the road". I got many different kind of warming massage oil. I almost used that this week while I was down in my back. I thought it would make the fact that I had to walk hunched over a little more sexy than icy hot. Atleast I would smell good.... and it would keep warming the sore areas of my back for quite a while . One testimony ( weird choice of words) was that it got so hot she had to find a bath tub quickly to get it off. Hmm.. who would have admitted to having that experience? Then there was the whistle for the security guard if I have to be outside stealing the internet. Then the bra.... I dont even know what to say. I got birthday cake candles for romantic evenings and a timer... 5 minutes buddy, you snooze - you lose. What a FUN FUN time this was. We laughed and laughed. Thanks Brenda for hostessing in your home.
Then.... what was next?
We have had four concerts so far this year. We had two in Bentonville , one in Clarksville and one here in Siloam The one in Siloam had over 400 kids and I was a little nervous... I mean, these are people that "know me". I think it went well. Danielle came and made a video but unless you can crop videos from the waist up...it aint happening.
When I took Danielle to the airport we went shopping. I got a few new outfits. If you remember last year., this is my therapy for the summer. I DESERVE a few outfits a week for having to do the stupid hula in front of 400 people every day and then laying my head down in a motel 6. I got the cutest outfit. SO cute in fact that I wore it out when I got home to go out for my anniversary. I got a lot of compliments on it. As Randy and I sat listening to music he gently reached back and rubbed my leg. Instead of getting a little umm.... warm ( without the warming oil) all I could think was... what is that hitting my leg? Low and behold he gets up and goes to the restroom and like a 16 year old I was checking out my leg. The SECURITY TAG was still there . Are you kidding me? Was everyone saying I looked so cute and secretly laughing at the white button on the lower edge of my cute new black pants? As we quickly went home and I undressed I heard the tag CLUNK as it hit the floor. Why didnt I hear that when I put them on?
As I got undressed I heard Randy say... Deb, I am fading fast... are you coming to bed? Five minutes later I heard him snore and knew the anniversary celebration was officially over.
