Little Lo's surgery/ Run in with the "fake law"


First things first...Little Lo is supposed to have surgery in the morning(well I guess here it is morning 12:22) I'm not sure if it's going to happen or not being that she has a horrible cough, and my hubby has the stomach flu...we've been passing that one around, luckily it's only a 6 hour bug, so hopefully he will be better by morning! If she has the surgery, which by the way, she is getting her tonsils/adenoids out, it will be at 10:10 in the morning...so I had better get this post done and into bed...Say a prayer for her! This will be her 6th surgery and she's not even 4 yet!!


Run in with the "fake"law....(part 1)


Ok, so I twittered a little about this on Friday, so here is the whole story....This is one of those stories that you get in an email about women being safe, except for me it isn't a STORY, it's real, and it has scared the daylights out of me...so if you need to pass this blog on I think that might be a good idea!


Ok, so on December 22nd, the Monday before Christmas, we were out doing some last minute Christmasy things...we were out too late...the kids slept in the car most of the evening, but let me tell ya I'm ashamed to say that we didn't get them home till around 12:30...a.m....I know I know..... but anyway, the last stop was to Walmart...I was looking for a last minute gift for my Hun, I knew what I wanted to get in the store, so he kicked back the passenger seat and dozed off like the kids were..I came out of the store and got in to drive home. I pulled out of Walmart and turned right, as soon as I turned a car flashed their brights at me to turn my lights on..I forgot to turn them on cause the car was running while I was in the store and the parking lights were on and I just didn't think about it...so I got to the light a minute later and I turned right on red(it was a legal turn) pretty much as soon as I turned, there were flashing lights behind me...I pulled over and was a little upset cause I didn't do anything wrong, and my hubby agreed(he is in law enforcement) So Cory put his seat upright and the cop came around to his side instead of mine. He wasn't wearing a uniform, just a coat with a dress shirt and a tie, and a toboggan...he said something about how I didn't turn my headlights on, and I told him about Walmart and how I forgot...and to that he asked for my license and registration, I thought you have to be kidding me....he then again said something about how I didn't turn my lights on till I saw him turn around behind me.....1st of all I didn't realize it was him who flashed his brights at me, second of all I explained AGAIN, how I did it right when he flashed me..then Naomi started crying and he said well okay get that baby home and out of the cold...So we left....and we thought it was weird...

The next day the hubs told the guys in the office about it, and the one guy knows alot of cops in the town this happened in and didn't think they had an undercover unit(did I mention that the car was unmarked) so Cory called the sheriff and filed a report.........Stay tuned to find out what happened next....
Soooo for the rest of the story...at the beginning of the week, the sheriff called my hubs and said he would like for us to come in and look at some pics of some people for the case..so we went on Friday. I was really nervous. They separated us, so we wouldn't influence each others thoughts. He went first. When the detective came in to see me he gave me 6 photo's which I looked at a lot. I picked 1 out in particular and told him that I wasn't saying that it was def. the guy but it looked like I remembered he looked. He then told me that I picked out their suspect, and my hubby picked out the same guy. Which made me feel alot better! Then he showed me something else. He showed me 2 photo's from Walamrt security of the guy walking in the store and him purchasing something. And the kicker is this...he was in their at the time I was in their! Which is totally scary...we aren't sure if he saw me and picked me out, or if it's a totally cowinky dink.....Anywho, they have enough to charge him thanks to us, and I hope he gets some jail time(doubtful though) I'm just glad that we are moving away from here in about a month so I can feel a little safer!! So that's my crazy story....you never know when something can happen even when you think "it can't happen to you" so carry some Mace and a knife!! And please pass this on to other women, maybe we can all learn something from it!

Dont feel bad about the late night x-mas shopping... I had my kids out til 12:30am on Christmas EVE!!! Talk ab a "bad mommy and daddy" lol... really it was my moms fault (isnt it always ha ha)

Your fake cop story really is scary... Im glad to hear you were able to help get him caught though! :)

Preston said...

That is one scary story. Maybe the crying baby scared him away or maybe he just liked the "thrill" of acting like a cop but either way, you are lucky nothing more happened. Good luck with your daughter's surgery.

That is very creepy especially during such late hours, glad nothing more happened. Hope your daughters surgery goes well.

Ronnica said...

That' so weird! Why do you think he did it? Was it a power trip thing, or was he hoping to steal or do something worse?

My2Gs said...

Hey Girlie,
Shawn wasn't in the room when you told Holly and I the story...he was shocked! I'm so glad you were able to pick him out. I would think that impersonating an officer would carry a pretty hefty charge??

Praying for Logan today :)

Love ya,
Lace
