This week brought to you by the man whose wife trembles each time he logs onto her blog... give it up for the unpredictable Mr. Daddy!

~

Well here we are Saturday May 22, 2010....

We have been waiting with bated breath for this day for,,,,,, Well a long time...

every since wife.Mom.Nurse, and her FireHubby have decided to come to Seattle for their anniversary....

And hinted at maybe, just maybe we might be able to meet in person...

Now if you have ever read their blogs, And I'm saying that it will only take one post, you will be as hooked as we are in following them I'm quite certain...

I don't remember if we found them, or they found us, but I must say thank you God for this blessing of someone finding someone...

So were was I?????? "O" yeah. Saturday A.M. We are rushing around trying to tidy up all the loose ends, cause we are gonna get to meet THE couple...

Itty Bit is all excited, cause he gets to go to Grandma Far Away's who is just maybe his most favorite person in the whole wide world. Yeah the whole afternoon and evening, just him and Ah-Ma. Rach and I are pretty excited to we don't leave him often, and this was a chance for a time to get out as a couple with the added bonus of hooking up with a couple that we both respect and have come to think of as friends. If only in the bloggy sense...

As usual, fate conspired against us.... With a gazillion little things at the last minute, that as you all know just have to be taken care of NOW!!!

And as I'm quite sure you all know that Seattle wasn't rated in the top 10 worst cities to drive in for nothing...

All of which conspired to make us, WELL about 22 and a half hours EARLY....

If you all have heard the one about the cowboy that road into town on Wednesday, but arrived on Friday, stayed four days, which made it Saturday and still left on Friday.....(his horse was named Friday)....

WELL!!!!!!!! this aint nothing like that......

Rach just got mixed up is all......

And Yeah, I'm totally calling her out on this one, cause it's my story and I'm sticking to it...*snicker*

(Rach In: I thought I already told you this was banned bloggy material???)

Every one knows us guys can't plan crap anyway, so imagine my surprise when I walk up to the front desk and ask for her to ring Brian & Julie's room, and she looks at her screen, and asks can I spell their last name... Me: Ummmm NO, what do I look like a Rhodes Scholar, for cripes sake...

I cast a quick desperate glance at Rach to see if she caught it, and I'll be danged if them ear drops haven't been doing a fine job of helping her lip reading, cause she just chimed right in with the correct spelling... (what a gal)

(Rach In: I soooo knew you were going there, Dear)

The girl looks again,,,,, Umm no, we have no one by that name.....

Have you ever had that sinking feeling in the pit of your stomach???

Now I have had some practical jokes pulled on me, but never in my born days have I EVAH been punked... So I frantically discreetly cast a furtive look around for that Kutcher, fellow. Or at the least some thing outa place...

Nope nothing wrong that I can tell...

The gal does a little magic on her screen and says "O they are scheduled to arrive tomorrow...."

WHAT??? TOMORROW..... NNNNNoooooOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!! Are you sure.....?

Mission accomplished, I got her worried now, Cause they are booked solid and she is worried that they did something wrong.... I know, I know we are good like that...

She get on the horn and calls a number right away, Yeah, you guessed it... Goes straight to voicemail.....

Rach had emailed Julie with our number, but we hadn't got a reply back with theirs....and you know that desk lady is not authorized to give out any info....

I ask to use the restroom cause all the excitement has went straight to my bladder...

We are leaving and I hear a "Hey mister, hey mister..... " It's the desk gal, holding up the phone.. it's for you.... I just know that it's that Kutcher fellow, so I'm getting ready to make a break for it. It's Mister Firehubby.... Thank God for small bladders eay.....?

I pick up the phone and say hello.....Brian??? YEAH.. "Hey man I am sorry...."

I am thinking he is apologizing for our mistake... I think I'm gonna really like this guy....

I immediately step up and take the high ground,,,, NO NO it was Rach's fault,,, really!!! cuz I always got her back ya know....

(Rach In: WHAT?!?! Thanks a lot, Dear. What was the FIRST thing I said to you at the hotel lobby? This is NOT going on the blog! ARGH! Help me out friends, my blog = my rules, right?)

So we figure out that Rach someone got their wires crossed.. and seeings that he was still at work, it didn't take us very long to figure out that it just wasn't gonna happen...hey inspector Clouseau has nothing on me, when it come to a little deductive reasoning...LOL

Needless to say Rach and I were very disappointed, we weren't sure if we would be able to pull off another trip up to Seattle the next day when they were really going to be there. We had not made any arrangements for Itty Bit on the 23rd and we had an appointment to take care of some other business.... It was looking grim on getting to meet...

(Rach In: You know, why don't you just let me take over for the rest of the story, k? Cuz you weren't even supposed to tell this one!)

Umm actually, in the spirit of Brian's infamous "To Be Continued" notoriety...

(Don't shoot! Mr. Daddy made me do it!)

~

So... ever goofed bigtime and ended up feeling like a dolt when it was publicized? No? Well don't mention your perfection and just pretend so I'll feel better, k?

We'll continue Part Deux tomorrow and beg y'all to link up with this little oopsie.

Add your post for some linky love!

Oh. That reminds me of the time I tried to pick my husband up at the wrong airport and he won't ever let me hear the end of it.

Aunt Crazy said...

Somehow, someway, this will ALL end up being Mr. Daddy's fault, I just know it...LOL

Shana said...

No you didn't split the story! How could you? Can't wait to read it. I would have totally made the same mistake by the way.

When I was teaching I arranged for a sub to go to a doctor appt that was scheduled for the next day. *sigh* So frustrating when these things happen.

I'm waiting on pins and needles for Part II. Go on, hurry up and post it. I'll wait right here.

You did NOT just seriously leave me hanging for an ENTIRE day?!?!?! Don't you know I haven't had my coffee quota for the day? So not fair!!!! ARGH! But I do, really and truly, hope that you did get to meet the Fantastic Duo - they just seem so stinkin awesome.

Well I hope it all worked out in the end. Sometimes it doesn't take too much for plans to go awry. ;)

Beth said...

Yikes! Been there. Done that. Got the t-shirt to prove it! Think I'm glad my hubby doesn't blog ... yet! And Rachel ... I think you lost control of the blog rules a while back! :)

Heather said...

I agree with you Rach... your blog, YOUR rules!!! But now I'm dying to hear how the story ends!

By the way, nice horse joke, Mr. Daddy. I actually, sort-of, semi laughed. : )
