A fun way to stay connected to our family and friends around the country!

Ben and Chandler went to the OU football game yesterday. Ben heard there was a 10% chance of rain before he left, but he said he had been to games with an 80% chance of rain and got all prepared, took ponchos and all the rest of the garb that would be necessary and... no rain. So he wasnt overly concerned of 10%.
Well, it rained. And rained. And lightning-ed. So bad that they postponed the game for 72 minutes and evacuated the stadium seats so that everyone was underneath. And then waited. Now, alot of the fans left. The score was 50-0, and most SANE people would have called it a night. But not my wonderful husband, who is a die-hard OU fan. No. Absolutely drenched, tired and waiting, they stayed for a bit and THEN left. (and yes, Chandler's painted hair was running everywhere!) But anyway, that was not the end of the waiting for them.
They walk the long walk to the place where the van was parked. It was in the grass, on a slope, in a large field. Which was not a problem going into the game, but it was after a couple of hours of rain.
He forgot he was not in his 4 wheel drive pick-up.
He also forgot to release the Parking Brake.
He also forgot to bring the cell phone charger.
He was stuck - in the mud - without a phone.
So, he was able to call me and ask me to get a tow truck to Lindsey in the field behind Braums. So I call 2 places and they are backed up hours. Apparently, lots of ding-dong men did the same thing. Imagine that.
The last place I called, the last place available in Norman said they would be right out. Well, 2 hours later, he is on the road home.
Tired, wet, tired, muddy and tired, they get home after 1am.
I am a Stay At Home Mom of four wonderful kids, one boy and three girls. My days are hectic and crazy, but I am doing my best to keep my head above water and raise good kids. All the while keeping in mind that if I do the best I can my kids will turn into good adults and God will take care of the rest!
