A few weeks ago I bought myself a toy, a PDA with a GPS system on it. It has all the bells and whistles, it will map a location, direct me when to turn, run excel spreadsheets and even check my email AND STILL GET ME LOST!!!! Today I needed to get out of the office (my co-worker is driving me up the wall) so I decided to head down to a church in an area where I really need to do some recruitment. I knew how to get to the church it was about 2 miles right off the exit so I head down, drop off my materials and just turn around and go back the way I came. I passed the exit I came in on, but it only went North and I wanted to go South to get home. I drive some more down the street which leads me to downtown Columbus, no biggie I knew I'd see the exit south soon, nope don't see anything. I turn on the GPS and it starts doing it's thing but it's telling me to turn right or turn left down streets that are one way only, so when I finally see the exit to go south I'm in the wrong lane and there is no way I can get over so the fun begins. I call Paul he tells me to keep going and I'll see the beltway exit soon, I really should have listened to him but after driving several more blocks and seeing nothing, I decide it's time to turn around, though in turning around I don't get back on the same street I was originally on and drove down some interesting looking streets. Finally I see a hospital and I see the interstate, I swear I got in the lane that said 71 South, but somehow I ended up going North on an entirely different highway. Luckily I knew where this road was, I took an exit I knew and went shopping, goodness knows I neded a break from the road!! Before I left I called Paul just to refresh my memory on how to get home after that driving trip I didn't want to mess it up again. And yes I did make it home. This is why country girls don't move to the city.

Look what we bought tonight. We didn't get the entire set just the bed and king sized so no more fighting for bed space. It's a sleigh bed, but the footer isn't high and curved like the traditional sleigh beds. It's so pretty and we even bought pretty sheets and comforter to go with it tonight. Should be delivered on Monday, will have to post real pictures of it then.
