To answer questions in the comments from my previous post:

A few years ago I had put on my blog that before I died, I wanted to learn to ballroom dance, so my hubby checked out studios in the area and found a great one. He basically got the lessons as a Christmas present for me and we started in January of 2006. Wow, can't believe it's been 4 years. There were long periods where we didn't go much. But we are now at the intermediate level. And I think it's one of the best things we've ever done for our marriage. It's a weekly date and then we go to a dance at the same studio the first Saturday evening of the month. They play all kinds of music. Our favorite dances are waltz, rumba, and cha-cha.

And getting cleaned out - I used no system, it just happened. Not sure why. May have been a bug since my hubby had digestive issues as well over the weekend last week. But it never felt like I was sick. I do take Miralax every day because I've had chronic issues with constipation. Maybe with the change in diet, my body is readjusting. Hard to say.

Had another scrapbooking weekend. Four of my friends and I are taking turns hosting once a month. I took my stuff to my friend's house on Thursday evening and worked for a while then. Went back Friday afternoon, all day Saturday and after church today until 5pm. I got 72 pages done! WOOHOO! I was very excited. And we had lots of fun chatting. Last night leaving her house, I came within SECONDS of being killed. When I left her house and got to the stop sign to turn onto the main road, I saw a faint red glow to the left and wasn't sure what it was, looked to the right and just then a car ZOOMED past me from the left - a car with NO HEADLIGHTS going 50 or 60mph! If I'd have left her house just a few seconds earlier, I'd have pulled out and been totally creamed. Not sure if it was kids goofing around or what, but I was NOT amused!!!

OK, everyone who commented on my last post is hearby nominated for the HAPPY 101 award. Ha ha! You are exempt if you've already got it before. ;-)

That must have been a terrifying experience being so close to being hit by that car. I'm sure that a 100 thoughts went through you mind in those few seconds.

On a happy note, I can't believe that you are almost 50! You look amazing!

OMG June, that's horrifying!!! I had a similar near-miss too; was with my daughters, back when they were young teens, driving home from the mall, and saw an 18 wheeler EXPLODE behind me! Huge fire balls and all! Had we only been a second or two later; I can't imagine the cars immediately behind it being able to stop. :(

Thanks for the award, sweetie!!!

How nice that you have a hubs that will dance with you.

He sounds like a keeper.

72 pages??? Please tell me you had them all planned out and just had to put them together ;) I take so long for one page it'd take me FOREVER to do that!

That is very scary! I've heard of gangs that do that to find people to target. I'm glad you are safe!

Oh my gosh I am so glad that your close call was just a close call... I have had scary things happen like that before and it always reminds me to slow down and appreciate life a bit. What year is your daughter in her psych major? Is she going to continue with it into grad school?

I love to scrapbook too! Sounds like a great weekend - except for the fact you almost got killed - that part not so good. Glad you are in once piece...
I need to find something fun to do with the husband - ballroom dancing sounds like a blast!

Love to you
