Why me...not now?

Today Madisen had a pre-op dental visit, which was about an hour away. Since we were going that way, we spent the afternoon at a Nature center. No complaints there accept the fact that, every school within the state was there. (At least so it seemed) Later on our way to her appointment I found out it would be a three hour visit. (Which wouldn't have been such a surprise, had I read the pamphlet earlier.) Therefore Kailey went with my mom and we went on to the Children's Outpatient Center. Ten minutes after our arrival we're sitting in this huge waiting room, and two women with badges come walking straight to me. They asked if Madisen was my child and would I mind if they took pictures of her to endorse their hospital. I agreed and signed some paper work and they went on taking tons of pictures of her. Next they came back and asked to take some of Jacob and I. In my head I'm screaming, "No No No...Absolutely NOT!" (It was the hottest, most humid day we have seen in a long time. I'm tired, I feel hot, sticky, and frumpy and the last thing I want is a camera in my face). Of course the part of me that just can't say "No", because God for bid I hurt anyone's feelings said "Sure you can". Why is it these times happen when you look your worst? It's never when you've just walked out of a salon, and you look fabulous with the wind blowing. (Nope never!) So hours later I'm driving home on the interstate and the worst thought enters my mind. My luck… the next time I drive down this road I'll look up to some billboard and see my face plastered on it! That's when I would DIE of complete humiliation.

  3. I love the way you think.


    I would think a whole billboard would be pretty sweet.
    I don't have the face really...

  4. I know the feeling. You never randomly run into people when you look fabulous, it's always when you run out in sweats with no makeup and your hair carelessly thrown up that you see people, and usually people you haven't seen in a while who want to sit and talk while you're shifting uncomfortably wondering how long they're going to torture you.
    On the upside, that's nice that they asked to take the pictures, and who knows, is this the beginning of a modeling career for you little darlings?

    And hi, I know I just started reading your blog, but I can't for the life of me remember if this is my first comment or not. So, if it is, hello. :)

  5. I have the same luck! The one time I bump into someone I know is when my family and I are sick, I ran out of diapers, and I looked like I just crawled out of a ditch. I wish at those moments I could just run and hide.

  9. I seee you conveniently left out the name of the hospital! LOL
    I don't think I'm anywhere near enough to see any billboard with your face plastered on it... but if I did, I'd be sure to call 911 about the lady by the side of the road under the sign, who is beet-red and looks dead... and I'd be sure to tell them what you said was the cause of death!!! ROFL

  11. I know exactly what you mean. One time, a furniture store decided to use our house to shoot a commercial. That wouldn't have been so bad if they'd given us the exact date. They said "Sometime this week". They showed us on the worst day:
    No make-up, just out of the pool, sunburned nose, hair was everywhere!

    just fantastic.
