What a whirlwind weekend this has been! Yesterday my husband was dragging me off to a children’s ministry training which I did NOT want to go to. I’m in my 9th month of pregnancy, I’m tired and cranky and I have sciatica so the last thing I wanted to do was go to a training where I would probably be sitting in uncomfortable chairs, not know anyone and have to be social. I said I’d go because Mr. GC went to the last one alone and figured I could handle it for the 2 hours it was supposed to be. All morning he’s asking me “How much do you hate me for making you go to this?” My answer: “A LOT!”. lol
We get there and he tells me to walk in first which is something I hate to do when we go places. Guess what my response was? “Ya know?? Now I really hate you because you drag me off to this thing and now you are making me walk in first”. I know, I’m mean. Anyhow, I open the door and lo and behold “SURPRISE!!!!!!!” My friends had gotten together to throw me a suprrise baby shower. I could not have been more thrown off and more surprised. I totally did NOT see that coming and anyone who knows me knows that I am THE hardest person to surprise.
Not because I don’t like surprises but because someone always ruins it for me. Case in point: My 21st birthday party. I get a phone call the afternoon of the party from some girl asking me how my party was. When I asked her what she was talking about, she clams up and hangs the phone up. Next up: My Bridal Shower. My nana was visiting from out of state for my cousin’s graduation and at the party (on Friday) she says good-bye to me saying she’s flying back home on Saturday. Two seconds later she is whispering to my sister “I’ll see you tomorrow!!”. Lastly: My Baby Shower for my first daughter over 7 years ago. My brother-in-law asks me how my shower was and then when he realizes what he’s done, he tries to cover it up but I knew. SO……..as you can see, I have yet to be surprised. My best friend from Long Island came up to surprise me. My friends from church, my neighbors, etc. It was such a special day. I felt so blessed and now Kole has a bunch of stuff that he really needs. AND I got the Pack and Play that I really wanted, never registerd for and never told anyone about. God is good!!!
