Thank God for Great Friends!!!!!

What a day I had!! I had a meeting at work that lasted until 5:00. I already had my computer shut down, but by the time I got everything pulled together and out to my car it was almost 15 minutes after 5:00. I then had a 40 mile drive (in rush hour traffic) to get Alex. I had to have him picked up by 6:00. I knew that I would be cutting it close.

Well........there was an accident on my interstate. I went about 5 miles in 40 minutes!!!

I ended up calling my friend Michelle. She dropped everything - packed up her kids - and tried to get there on time. She didn't think she was going to make it, so she called her sister-in-law Debbie who was 3 minutes from the daycare. Debbie picked Alex up and then sat with him in the parking lot until Michelle got there. Then, Michelle sat in the parking lot with Alex as the carrier we are using can't be strapped into the car without the base. I ended up there at 6:20.

Not only that - but then Michelle fed both me and Jay!!! She's such a great friend.

Thanks Michelle and Debbie!!!!!!!!!
