I made a new friend today:)


This story starts yesterday....I went to go by some tomatoes to make some salsa, and I had hurd that Pettingills (hala) had the best tomatoes. Well they didn't have the tomatoes I was looking for but they had the most beautiful bell peppers and I didn't buy any because I was hoping that my plants at home would keep up with the demand. I did have enough to do yesterday's batch but not today's, so this morning after Parker went to school Normy and I went to go get the beautiful bell peppers at Pettingills. I ended up running a few more errands but we did get the bell peppers and we were headed back to get Parker from school (with plenty of time I might add), and we were going through Willard, and I got caught going 58 in a 45. I was really trying to pay attention to the speed I was going because I was not in a hurry we had PLENTY of time to get back to get Parker, but I wasn't doing as good of a job as I thought I was. My first pullover in the NASVAN! Officer Phil walks up and asks for my licence, registration, and proof of insurance. I had two of the three my proof of insurance card was getting in my way every time I walked out to get into the NASVAN but it has yet to make it into the NASVAN. He was a very nice officer and I had it all under control until he let me off with a warning and then I lost it. Let's remember that I do have extra hormones but I don't know what came over me. Normy was sitting in the front seat with the airbag off but I guess it is state law that kids can not sit in the front seat so he told me Normy had to sit in the back and then he saw where the cat scratched me last night and asked me about the scratches. When I told him that they were from my cat he acted like he did not believe me and said they looked like something else. I am so naive that I don't even know what he was tiring to imply. After all that we still had PLENTY of time to make it back and get Parker from school, but I have yet to make my salsa:)

So nobody told me that you guys had a blog. I had to find it from a friend of a friend of a friend of a family member who I accidentally fell upon. I'm glad you guys finally started the blog and I hope to see some good stuff on here.

And what a dumb cop. They are so paranoid about everything, I guess its better safe than sorry when it comes to "domestic violence."

We are excited to see everyone this weekend!
