Just because

This is what I learned yesterday.

Just because you plan a day at the lake, it doesn't mean it will be sunny.
Some girls and I had an excellent day planned at a lake. Kristi and I planned to take the day off of work, even though we had a lot to do. We have 2 weddings this weekend so we decided since we're working the weekend, this was going to be our "day off." However, we woke up to clouds. And rain. And COLD! In JULY!

Just because I used to rock at Mario Kart, it doesn't mean I'm good anymore.
Back when I was younger, I played N64 with my brother and brother-in-laws all of the time. And I loved it, because it was the one game I played with them in which I was actually competition. Last night I was at my sister's and my 8-year-old nephew begged me to play Mario Kart on the Wii with him. So I did. And I placed 12th twice in a row. But then we played a round called "Coconut Mall" and I got first place, and my ego was restored. I'll tell you... they have sure advanced in Nintendo since I was 8. I used to spend my days with Bubble Bobble, Pacman, Duck Hunt, and Mario 3, and now before I even begin a game I'm instrcuted to "create" a virtual version of myself, pick out my outfit, purchase a car, and create a profile. It's crazy!

Just because there is free food, it doesn't mean I'll eat it.
WHAT?! I know, right. Hard to believe. I went to a Chiefs game last night and it was "Free Hot Dog" night. But I didn't eat one, even though I love hot dogs. This could have something to do with the fact that I had just finished a great dinner that included Monkey bread and Snickers cheese cake, so I was a little full. Don't worry, I still got popcorn.

Just becasue it's July, it doesn't mean it's going to be warm.
Last night we sat outside with jackets on. It was 65 degrees and cold. Felt like September. I can't wait for Fall, maybe then it will be warm.

Love you all!
