A Premonition

Leaving the hotel in Dallas this afternoon after a fabulous weekend at a Dance Revolution with my sweet daughter I had only one thing on my mind.

Just one. (Which is rare considering the fact that I am ALWAYS multi-tasking. ALWAYS!)


Not trying to make sure that I knew where I was going on the never ending maze of highways and interstates- even though I didn't exactly know where I was going.


Not thinking ahead to all that awaited me at home- laundry, cleaning, grocery shopping, and all that fun stuff.


Not thinking about how I missed my hubby and wanted to kiss his sweet face- although I did miss him and wanted to kiss his sweet face.


Not thinking ahead to all that must be done at school after missing school on Friday- although there is a TON.


My mind was on one simple thing.


Something I had been missing terribly since early Friday morning.


Two whole days.


My love.


Mi amor.


Mon Amour.


And so I tuned out the chatter from the car and focused intently on scouring the frontage roads looking for a sign.


THE best sign ever.


And yet I did not see one.


For miles and miles and miles and miles I looked and did not see one.


We continued on past exit after exit after exit with my heart feeling so very sad.


All of a sudden I saw a sign for Exit number 38 and I had a premonition.

I felt relief flood all over me.

Somehow I just knew that my love would be waiting for me there.


I immediately changed lanes and exited at exit 38- which just happens to be the same number as my current age. A true sign, don't you think?


I scoured the roadside and pulled up to a stoplight.


Sadly I did not see my love anywhere but as I waited for the light to change my sweet friend Betty looked to the right - and there, just a few blocks down there it was!


I pulled in to place my order with a huge smile over my very tired face.


My premonition was right.


My Sonic Sense was intact.


And all was well.

  4. Ooh! If we call for an intervention, can we have Jeff VanVonderen do it? (He is my favorite Interventionalist from A&E's Intervention.)
    I know Shannon watches that show too... maybe she would rather have Candy or Ken do it...?
