I wish I were kidding

So today Morgan and I went to pick up my paycheck and we walked around for a while for some exercise. I did the mall walking she strolled. Anyway, as we were getting in the car (which can be a lengthy process...putting the stroller up and wrestling Morgan into her seat) this guy came running near our car. I just knew this was not going to be good. He had just finished shop lifting and was going to hide by MY car. I DON'T THINK SO! Immediately everything in me rose to the occasion of mother hen. I was going to make sure this guy didn't get any ideas of trying to get in my car. Anyway, this other guy comes chasing after the shop lifter (and he is on the phone with the police) and since I figured something was up I asked the guy if he was looking for someone and he said I told him the guy was hiding next to my car. Homey don't play that. I was not scared for a minute...praise the Lord. Anyway, I helped them follow the guy through the parking deck until I saw him run back in the mall. I followed him with my car...not in person. Anyway, then a few seconds ago I walked outside to get Morgans cup and a cat darted out at me and began to hiss. SCARED ME TO DEATH! I still have not calmed down from reaching my target heart rate. Crazy isn't it!!

You go girl! I would have got my boys in the car and left dodge! :) I had an incident with a cat when I was in college ... hissing and jumping on me for no reason ... now I cannot stand being around cats! Your stories always put a smile on my face.

Wow, that is amazing. Satan is such a dork though, trying to scare you at the very least with a cat, c'mon dude, you are lame with a capital "L".

Very proud of you siesta:-)

In love with Jesus,

Hey Jenny, Can I relate a story we heard in church on Sunday...This Mom who just took CPR classes was shopping with her daughter when she saw a man face down spread eagle with tons of people surrounding him. Her daughter did not want her to get involved but she passed her CPR with such success she could not help but stop to help. She flipped the man onto his back like a pro, pumped his chest, proceeded to do mouth to mouth when she was tapped on the shoulder by security. What are you doing mam? We are trying to arrest this shoplifter. :)

I'm sure glad you are OK!
