We made it to Author's Breakfast, then a tremendous storm hit with 70mph winds and tornadoes, AND to top it all off, the Blythe I have been waiting about a month and a half for (or, and eternity) was supposed to show up on my doorstep. So after we left, we went to the Post Office, Johnny ran through a pond that the rain had created to get to the front door. He came out with the doll and everyone was happy. Well, until we made it to his work to pick up some stuff. The downstairs had flooded. Which sucks, yes, until you consider that there is a preschool having class, and even though their floor is elevated and they won't get swept away by water, they can't leave the room to use the bathroom or anything, so it instantly becomes a catastrophe. Little kids and peeing, they just go hand-in-hand. So they did some work and waved the magic wand or something, and got most of the problem fixed.
Isn't she amazing? She actually creeped me out at first because she looks so real. She was customized by Melacacia.
We did end up having a great day, though, and we even made it to the park. I had my Blythe, saw wonderful friends, ate yummy food, and found my missing chair. Here's a picture of the handsome gent we got to spend our day with:
You better believe he was at our show last week, AND rockin' out! But don't worry, he wore his earplugs the whole time. I have to go now and clean an entire bottle of chocolate milk out of my couch. Fun times. Have a wonderful Mother's Day this weekend!!!
