31 Days - Day 7

Y'all. I got up at 7 a.m. today, and on a Sunday, too! Woo hoo! Go me! Clinton made me get up.

We went and got groceries, and it was great being practically the only people in the grocery store! We got home and unloaded, and there was just enough time for us to get to Cuthand for church. I'm headed down the road and literally thought to myself, today is going to be a good day. Then, realized that I forgot something at home. Whipped around real quick, and came home. Headed back out, with about 30 minutes before church and a 30 minute drive ahead of me! And 5 minutes later, I, of course, got pulled over.

Cop asked if I knew why he pulled me over. I said "I'm sure I was speeding, I'm late for CHURCH!" Emma was in the back seat screaming "We're going to be late for church...we're going to miss it... is he going to put you in jail??" Of course, I'm going "Hush... hush... hush!" Then he sits in his car for 15 MINUTES and comes back with this

59 in a 40, and NO, that's not a warning. Ugh!
Then I sped all the way to church and made it there right on time! Ssh! Don't tell anyone! 

Despite all that, we still had a great day. Church, lunch with the family, visit with my mother-in-law, cleaned house, got work done! Feel very productive! AND have plans to workout in the morning, IF my wake-up call comes through! ;)

Today, I feel like I have it together. I don't know if I will tomorrow, but today feels good!

  1. I saw your picture on Instagram! haha =) That's pretty crappy you got a ticket though. I'm glad your day got better though! =)

  2. Sorry about the ticket. I was pulled over this summer and Emma was screaming and he let me go. I was so relieved! Sorry you didn't have the same luck...
