Sept 28, 2007 I'm way behind.

It's been a long time since I've posted anything to my blog. I haven't done any pictures, just lots of rambling.

I have a new grandbaby born June 16th of this year. She is absolutely beautiful.

All of my family is doing well and growing. The older ones stay out of trouble, and the younger ones amaze me daily with all the wonderful things they do and say. Two of them have a hard time staying out of trouble.

Ivan has become quite a handful since the birth of his little sister. I think it's that 'vying for attention' thing.

Maddie seems to be a stubborn little girl who thinks things should be her way or the highway. Needless to say, that gets her into trouble quite often. I think her problem is second child syndrome.

Enough about my grandchildren. And on to my own latest fiasco.

I came to work last Monday wearing two different shoes. Now I know that I'm 58 and maybe slipping just a little(forgetfullness and all that), but two different shoes. When I tell this story on myself, people say, 'they looked a lot alike, right?). Well, no, the only thing about them alike was they were both slides. One was a brown Earth Shoe, and the other a gray/green Merrill. The bad thing was that I had to leave the office several times. Funny thing was few people noticed unless I called attention to them myself.

I started therapy on my knee over in the Nursing and Health Care Building that afternoon. I had to sit on the side of a bed while the student checked my reflexes. A very cute young man thought it was very funny that my shoes didn't match. The instructor just about laughed his head off. How could I be so stupid as to put on two different shoes? It was daylight when I dressed. I had my glasses on. What was I thinking? Obviously about something besides what I was putting my feet into.

When I had gotten to work that morning, I'd opened the car door and stuck my left foot out. That's when I realized what I'd done. I thought to myself, 'I've worn my old shoes to work--grrreat!' Only to stick my other foot out and realize that I'd worn two different shoes.

It's a good thing I can laugh at myself, because not one single soul laughed with me, they all laughed at me.
