What's up!

My husband switched companies this year, and so all of our insurance has been in limbo while waiting for the grace period to end. The new insurance became available to us in September. Which is great except they needed copies of our marriage license and all of the kiddo's birth certificates. I lost our marriage license years ago and I never ordered my baby girl's birth certificate. So we have been with out access to health insurance because I had to wait for the certificate to come. I finally received the certificate yesterday and so today I went down town to get a copy of our marriage license.

I don't go down town often because it is, well, scary. Downtown is where homeless people live (sad) and people are robbed. It is also hard to navigate. Some streets are one way while others are two way. I just get mixed up and I can tell you that I have driven the wrong way on a one way street more than once. The two little ones I took with me were thrilled by the height of the buildings and the new scenery. It was actually pretty fun. I wish that I had taken my camera. Everything went perfectly until we left on the two way street and ended up on a one way that was heading to a highway. It was all OK until I realized once on the highway that I was headed in the wrong direction. So I am having anxiety I am running a little late and I am headed in the wrong direction. I called my dad and he told me that the highway would have an exit that I could follow home. Yay for dad's!! It did and I got back just in time to take lunch to my lovely daughter at school.

You switched your blog around! I hate driving in the city too. What is it about one way streets anyway?

I know I've been headed the wrong direction more than once. Sometimes I've been QUITE the wrong direction for some time. A couple months ago I practically made it to Scotland before I realized I missed my exit.

Brandon laughed when I read him your description of downtown. He just nodded and said "yep". So did Marie have her baby yet?

I have a hard time going sowntown also and can relate to everything you are saying about it!

By the way, don't laugh at me for telling you this, but I just realized that you had a blog page. I know it sounds stupid, but I always look at your profile and am always thinking, hmm...I wish she would write something. Duh! It never really hit me until today that I needed to click on your blog to look at it! Uh...I'll just leave it at that! But at least now I have things to read and can catch up on everything you've been thinking about the past year, right?! :)
