I Don't Wanna Go!!!

So, I’m getting ready for National and I’m already nauseous. Agoraphobia rears its ugly head. It was time for a laugh, and Christa provided one. I thought I’d share. Talk to you next week!

A father put his three year old daughter to bed, told her a story and listened to her prayers which she ended by saying: "God bless Mommy, God bless Daddy, God bless Grandma and good-bye Grandpa."

The father asked, "Why did you say good-bye grandpa?" The little girl said, "I don't know daddy, it just seemed like the thing to do."

The next day grandpa died. The father thought it was a strange coincidence. A few months later the father put the girl to bed and listened to her prayers which went like this:

"God bless Mommy, God Bless Daddy and good-bye Grandma.."

The next day the grandmother died. Oh my gosh, thought the father, this kid is in contact with the other side. Several weeks later when the girl was going to bed the dad heard her say:

"God bless Mommy and good-bye Daddy."

He practically went into shock. He couldn't sleep all night and got up at the crack! of dawn to go to his office. He was nervous as a cat all day, had lunch sent in and watched the clock. He figured if he could get by until midnight he would be okay.

He felt safe in the office, so instead of going home at the end of the day he stayed there, drinking coffee, looking at his watch and jumping at every sound. Finally midnight arrived, he breathed a sigh of relief and went home.

When he got home his wife said "I've never seen you work so late, what's the matter?"

He said "I don't want to talk about it, I've just spent the worst day of my life."

She said "You think you had a bad day, you'll never believe what happened to me. This morning my golf pro dropped dead in the middle of my lesson!"

Whoops! Surprise Daddy!

You'll have a great time once you're there, Bailey. It's the not knowing that gets to you. Gets to me. When I get somewhere it's never anywhere as near as nervewhracking as I'd thought.

I hope you find its the same for you. Just enjoy and fill the well with lots to blog about later!
Miss Ya!

Hope you have a great time at the conference. :) Have you tried wearing nausea bands on your wrists? They always help me out with my panic attacks (

Dru said...

I agree with everyone, you'll do fine and just think the lovely Jill Shalvis will be there.

When do you leave?

Good joke. Now we know who her daddy is.

I am not going to say relax, just go and throw up all the way if you have to! Once you do that, it'll get better!
