Happy Anniversary Mom and Dad!

Ok, so here's the story.
My parents 33 anniversary was yesterday. Exactly a week after mine!
Well, the day comes and goes and it had slipped my I had thought about it a hundred times this past week...but the day of...drew a blank!
So, it is Friday evening and I am working on this weeks challenge layout.

I finish and I am thinking of the date of their anniversary and the light bulb goes on!
I stood straight up out of my seat and bellowed...OH MY GOSH!!!!
I totally forgot my parents anniversary!
I looked at the clock 1030 pm YIKES!!!
I was sick to my I felt like vomiting!
I knew they had gone to the dance at their clubhouse. But was it an early or late dance? UGH couldn't rem. Called their one home.
Called moms cell. No one answers. Were they mad at me and not answering????????
So I took my page and the card I made and I headed out to their house...its 11 pm by now. They live 5 minutes from us....but decide to drive up by the clubhouse as I recalled it was a later dance and was just about over. I knew my mother was in charge of clean up after the dance on her committee. So I walk in my mom had her back to me and I just hug her and told her I am sorry I forgot her anniversary and then this made me cry...and then she cried. Then I showed her the page and the card and told them the story and they laughed! I made it in the 11th hour! They were so happy to see me and told me I made their day....can you believe the other three children did not even rem it? So I am still the favorite child. hahahahah

I can't believe I almost forgot it! Then again, I had to pick Marc up from the airport on Thursday night. (It's kind of my part time job! He pays 100.00 for the trip there and back!) His flight was due in at 9:00 pm thursday night. Due to complications with the airplane their flight was delayed and then they didn't get on another plane until 10:45...putting them in Orlando after 2 am...I believe he was in the car by 2:30 am and I was home at 3:30 am. I slept till 1130am and my day was lost....

Jacob had a baseball game last evening and they lost. Unfortunately there was a huge conflict between coaches and parents last night. It got ugly. Which is why we always sit far away from the team parents and do not associate with them. Bummer for the kids sake.

Alls well that ends well. The last picture of the "intellect" studying his important writings is the end all best!

Thanks for remembering.
