The New Biggest Loser ~ Literally!

Anyone who knows me knows that there are often times when I am a no-show.

There's a lot going on around here and things come up unexpectedly that interfere with my well laid plans.

But this time I get the Biggest Loser Award ~ and not for weight loss.


I slept through the first half of my own baby shower this morning.

No. I'm not kidding.
Really.

Who does that!?!

My sweet friend, knowing that Mr. Binks is usually up all night, didn't call me until AN HOUR AFTER IT STARTED! She knew I was sleeping!

Sure enough ~ I was just getting dressed when the call came. I was SO out of it that when I saw her name on callerID, it didn't even ring a bell.

Here's our conversation:
Clueless Me: "Hello?"

Sweet friend trying NOT to laugh at me: "Hey Jill! How is your morning?"

Still CM: "Great! I just woke up!"

SFTNLAM: "Oh good! I'm glad you got some sleep. I was wondering if you might have forgot."

I could hear the smile in her voice as my mind was spinning and my eyes darted to the clock trying to remember where I was supposed to be.

CM: "(gasp) Ooooohhhhhhh . . . Why didn't you call me sooner!!??!!"

SFTNLAM: "I couldn't bring myself to! I knew you were sleeping!"

Oh the shame! 

I shall never show my face in public again and wear hoodies the rest of my life!
