Jammer shooting free throws in round two of the playoffs.

Reflecting on the party, I thought I was a pretty laid back wife...you know, compliant, easy going, flexible. But this surprise party made me realize that I'm not quite as flexible as I might like to believe. After Jammer's morning basketball game, we came back to the house and my husband suggested that he and I go out and do some shopping. Hello! West Virginia was playing at 2 o'clock. I did not want to go shopping. I wanted to stay home and watch the game. The girls suggested that I DVR the game. Hello! Who DVR's sporting events? Not me. Just as I was about to be stubborn, it dawned on me that it was all about getting me out of the house. So I said "Sure!" And off we went. We had a great time - just the two of us. We actually listened to the broadcast of the game as we traveled to the outlets. It all was great (well not the game...they lost). But I knew that if it hadn't been for my suspicion about the party, I would have been less likely to agree to this interruption in my agenda. Ouch! So, I'm working on it....you know, being who I thought I was! Trying to not hold onto my agenda...to allow myself to be open to change.
party favors from my mom for everyone at the party
