Just look at this face......

This is EXACTLY how I feel right now...this little fella does a nice job of visually depicting just how TICKED OFF I am, and at the same time, beautifully so.

I planned a surprise night out with my husband. No kids (all three spending the night out?? How often does THAT happen??!). Dinner reservations at one of our ALL TIME FAVORITE RESTAURANTS (and I HAVE to add, if you're EVER within an hour's drive of Lookout Mountain--Tennessee OR Georgia ;)--you MUST, I repeat MUST check this place out! I'd recommend the "Slash & Burn" catfish & coconut cake.....and I don't even LIKE coconut cake. Southern Living agrees, and, even at today's gas prices, it's more than worth the drive and your time. You may thank me later by bringing me a slice of cake).

I'm not gonna tell ya the other surprises I had planned because my children read this blog. They'd "ick" out.

And if I ever had any doubts before (which I don't), I am convinced SATAN IS ALIVE AND KICKING AND HE HATES MARRIAGE AND HE'S LAUGHING AND DOING A HAPPY JIG RIGHT NOW.

Tad is working LATE :(. Major "thing" at work...not exactly something you can plan for. Not only did I have to (tearfully) call and cancel our dinner reservations, he may not come home until......who knows?????

The saving grace is . . . I WILL be ready for him (we'll call this "Plan B") ;)

Who's laughin' at who now?

Oh, yeah, evidently this is a very famous picture. Here's a link to give credit where credit is due.

Hey wait a minute. I thought we were invited out to eat with you. I didn't know it was a romantic surprise night out on the Mountain. Are we invited to plan B too? Just kidding. That is too bad because He's only gonna turn 50 one time and that's a big birthday. Take care and we will see you soon.

It's all about goin' with the flow, chunk...kids were invited out LAST night instead of tonight, so I switched things up a bit. Well, I freakin' TRIED to switch things up. He's gonna whip your tail tellin' everyone he's 50! Plan B worked out just fine, but I had a contingency Plan C waiting in the wings just in case ;). Ciao for now.

great blue bird --

As for the other part, I have never been very good at disappointment.


Plan B for me would have been a cry baby cribsy.

Sorry about the messed up weekend - good for you! Not letting changed plans ruin the night ;)

But, seriously, catfish? I guess it takes all kinds.

Married to my college sweet-heart :)...three GREAT kids I'm not selling to the circus today...I LOVE to laugh (& smile often)...love to read & cook, hate to shop (unless the store is very small and doesn't leave me dazed and confused). I'm scared of flying so although I'd like to travel more, I don't.

I've been pleasantly surprised to find life in my 40s to be an amazing time of transformation & discovery--of self, others, creation and the Creator.

Here's a partial explanation for my Blog title. I think it'd be cool if they really existed.

A Pensieve is a stone basin.... [One] can extract his or her own memories and place them in the Pensieve, especially to relieve the mind when it becomes too flooded with information. Anyone can examine the memories in the Pensieve, which also allows viewers to fully immerse themselves in the memories stored within...

A Pensieve first appears in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire...
