Desperate Times…Desperate Measures! (12 Days of Christmas: Day 5)

So yesterday was our Christmas musical at church and I was one of the five singers out in front. I tell you that so you can understand my little blunder! You see, I am a time-challenged person…majorly time challenged. You can ask anyone who knows me! No matter how hard I try, I always struggle to be on time for things. And trust me…this does not play well with the type-A in me! So naturally I was terrified I would be late Sunday morning…that I’d oversleep (hence I woke every hour in a panic to check the clock), spill my coffee on my outfit (hence no coffee that morning), or have a last minute diaper to change (hence I left before Sean and the girls so he would get stuck with any last minute changes…thanks, Babe!). And I’m proud to announce that not only did I arrive on time, but early! (Applause) Thank you! Thank you!

So I made my way around the church dropping off little Christmas gifts to some lovely people and then began to head to warm-ups. That’s when it happened! Someway…somehow…I lifted my foot…and snagged my tights with my boot! I felt the tug…looked down…and there it was…a hole!

Now I may be half Puerto Rican, but these legs haven’t seen sunlight in a while. Add that to black tights and that hole was like a full moon on a dark night! I will say it wasn’t big, but little by little that pinhole became a dime and then a nickel! It had to be stopped! I ran frantically from room to room looking for every female I could find. Hairspray? Clear nail polish? No! I checked my watch…I was still okay on time, but didn’t have long. What was I going to do? Even if I found something to keep the hole from growing, it was still a hole! And my “bright-as-day” leg was saying, “Look at me! Look at me!”

One last classroom…aha…my dear friend, Emily! While trying to appear calm, but inwardly shouting, “Pah-leeeeease, help me!” I ask for thoughts, ideas, solutions…ANYTHING! And like a guardian angel there to save the day, she shrugs and says, “You could color your leg black!”  GENIUS! Why didn’t I think of that? And like a desperate fool, I grab a black marker, run to the restroom, paint my leg black, and make it breathless, just in time for warm-ups!

And I’ll tell you…that little black marker?…Worked like a charm! =)

P.S.  If you haven’t already done so, you can check out the Mommon Sense Facebook page for the previous “12 Days of Christmas”. =)

  37. Have you ever considered about including a little
    bit more than just your articles? I mean, what you say is valuable and everything.
    However think about if you added some great graphics or videos
    to give your posts more, “pop”! Your content is excellent but
    with pics and video clips, this website could definitely be one of the best in its niche.
    Superb blog!
