I Heart Firemen.

firemen So last Friday I was dropping off baby girl at my parents' and everything was going great.  I decided to take a different street than I usually do when I leave my parents'.  The street with a Starbuck's drive thru of course.  All of a sudden instead of feeling like I was driving on pavement, I felt like I was driving on a rocky dirt road.  I was on a two lane street so I pulled over to the right.  I jumped out real quick to see what happened and just as I thought, a flat tire.  I was trying to text my husband because I honestly didn't know who I should call first.  Before I could send my text I saw flashing lights in the back and instead of the police, it was a fire truck.

The next thing I knew I was being asked if I had a donut in the back, I said yes and one of the firemen said, "Since you have a spare tire on you we can change it for you!".  I was in shock and still am.  Do firemen really do this?  I guess they do because I was able to sit in my air conditioned car while five firemen changed my tire in less than 10 minutes.  I was beaming from ear to ear when I said, "Thank you!!" and headed to Starbucks after all.

So.  Amazing.  Has anything out of the ordinary like that happened to you?

Do share, such a blessing!

P.S. I have a scanner now and it is the bomb.com.

Doh.

Doc Jun 10, 2014, 6_34 PM So last week I made a pretty big mistake.  I made all of the arrangements for baby so I could go get my hair done for my appointment at 5 p.m. last Thursday.  Made sure everything was done, avoided traffic, was so on time I got an ice cream cone, hustled to find a parking spot, texted that I was on my way.  Then I came into the salon and my hairstylist was working on someone else, she does one client at a time.  Which usually isn't a big deal but this client was in the sink, no where near being finished.  Then my hairstylist said, "You aren't today hun".  I was one week early and devastated.  Guess my paper planner isn't working so great after all, this is the first time this has ever happened.

Instead of getting out there in bumper to bumper traffic in the rain, I hung out at Starbucks and sketched a little diary for that week.  Today is my actual appointment.

When was the last time you made a bonehead move?

*My scanner broke and while I am waiting for the new one to arrive, I downloaded the Tiny Scan app on my iPhone.  Worked pretty well.

24 Hour Comics Day

I've always wanted to participate in 24 Hour Comics Day and this weekend I did.  This is a day where you draw comics for 24 hours and you can document a day in your life or you can just work on a comics story.  I documented our Saturday and I loved it.  I lasted 14 hours and the panels I didn't draw would be of us sleeping anyway so I consider this a win.  :)  Hope you can read my chicken scratch. Click the images to make the bigger.  Thanks for checking out my first comic!
