Is it Monday?

Ok, so yesterday I posted about how busy I have been...and I've been trying to do a better job of balancing everything out so I don't feel like I don't have time for anything, and so I don't feel like I've wasted any time either. Take last night for instance...I worked on my quilt some, gave Alexa a bath, and after she went to bed I decided to go to bed early too. A great night made for a great morning. I got up on time and got ready, then got Alexa up and fed her breakfast...then we left 5 minutes early. For those of you who know me...you know how unlikely this is! LOL!

So, after I dropped Alexa off at daycare I decided I would treat myself to breakfast from Breuggers and coffee from Starbucks. I called in my order to Breuggers, and proceeded to pick it up. Then I went to the drive through at Starbucks (they are right next door to each other for those of you not familiar with the area). When I went to give my order my car started acting funny. It was like I was stepping on the gas and the brake at the same time, so I put the car in neutral thinking that might help, well all that did was cause the engine to go CRAZY! At that point all I could think to do was turn the car off. Apparently that was a bad idea! After the lady took my order, my car wouldn't start. AAAHHHHHHH!!! I'm thinking, are you serious? This is so what I get for being early and going by Starbucks! Sure enough, my car wouldn't come back on...the engine would turn over, but that was the end of that. I was on the phone with Mama when all of this happened, so I told her I would call her back and I called my Dad.

In the meantime the lady at Starbucks told me she was coming out to see if she could help. She brought my coffee with her...how sweet was that? We motioned people around me as they pulled up in the drive through, and I'm sitting there thinking, is this really happening to me this morning? I was supposed to be EARLY for work...and now I'm going to be LATE! She tried to get my car started to no avail...so she decided to push my car out of the drive through lane. We finally got the car into neutral, and she pushed it about 5 feet when we hit an incline...so she had to call another worker out to help her. All the while cars are pulling up to get coffee. We send them around me, so by the time he came out to help there were cars in the other lane. So, we waited until they pulled up, and they pushed me out of the way. I was truly thankful that Lanna and Brad were there to help me, and they wouldn't even let me pay for my coffee.

It was so nice to see their concern for me, and it helped me not feel quite so bad that my car was clogging up the drive through. I have already written a letter to Starbucks corporate, and I'm going to do something for them as well.

I just wanted to share my frustration with all of you as a reminder that something as small as a cup of coffee can really make a difference. We all need to remember that because we never know what someone else is going through, and how something, even a kind word might be enough to brighten their day!

Now...onto something different. Here are the pictures of Alexa from this weekend! She is just too sweet...and she now has her 5th tooth. I can't see it yet, but I felt it last night. If what they say is true, her teeth should be really strong because they are taking FOREVER to come in! LOL!

Here is Alexa rinsing herself during bath time...it's pretty hysterical!
Pop reading to Alexa...notice the PINK John Deere hat. Uncle Jerry gave both babies one when they were really little...they don't have baby sizes, so it's still big on her, but she loves to wear Pop and Uncle Jerry's caps!

Here she is with Uncle Jerry's cap on!

Could you please stop taking pictures of me?

and here she is clapping for herself! LOL!

Pop and Alexa reading the monkey book!

Alexa wasn't sure about Ali...not sure if it was because he's so hyper, or if it was his tongue! She would get almost ready to touch him and then jump back! LOL

Here she is with Sevy and Ali...again not sure about that furry thing! She also wasn't too sure about Sev at first, but she quickly warmed up to him...and then she was running to him every 2 seconds!

Here they are being silly together

And mama wasn't quite fast enough with the camera...Alexa had been laying with her head on Sev...but she decided to get down when I wanted a picture. Go figure!

Alexa and Auntie Lou Lou...I think Alexa was watching Ali here

Alexa and Miss Anne...Alexa said "I will be friends with anyone who gives me cookies" (mainly because her mama doesn't give them to her!

And in true Auntie Lou Lou fashion...being silly girls!
