Shocked!

Yesterday I was totally surprised! I was at home and Joey called me telling me he would be getting off work early that day because his boss was going to come over to borrow some tools to work on a project. Joey also said he would be coming inside to look at our tile(I figured he was installing tile in his house). So, I swept the floors and was straightening up the house. Joey arrived home and I was still busy cleaning. Then the phone rang and I saw on the caller id that is was my best friend Laura, who lives in Utah. I told Joey not to answer it and that I would just call her back after his boss left since I was still trying to clean up a few last minute things. Well, Joey picked it up anyways, and man oh man, that made me really irritated with him!(Not that I didn't want to talk to my pal, but you know what I mean). I was mouthing to him, "I just told you not to answer it!" So, he hands the phone to me and I am seriously ticked at him. Then I start talking to her and there is a knock on the door, which I assumed was his boss. Then Joey has the nerve to ask me to answer the door and I refuse and tell him to answer it because I'm holding Cali and talking to Laura on the phone. I said something like, "Its your boss, you answer it!" I was being a major terd! :) Then I tell Laura I need to call her back in a few, come out of the kitchen to see that Joey has answered the door and I see this girl in my house(this girl was Laura!). For the first couple of seconds, I didn't know it was her! She had her sunglasses on and her hair was really short and I wasn't expecting Laura so the thought didn't even occur to me that it was her. I just thought, why did Joey let this chick in our house and who is she? Then she took her sunglasses off and I my eyes just about popped out of my head:) I was so happy! (and felt pretty dumb at the same time) I still can't believe she is here visiting! Its just awesome. This was a great surprise-they totally got me! Laura's birthday is this weekend and this is what she asked her husband for for a gift-a trip to Texas to visit me. Its a great gift for me too, so thanks Peter! And thanks Joey for picking her up from the airport and keeping the secret so well. Joey even had cleaned a few things in our house this weekend and I thought, wow, thanks Joey! Now I know he was doing it for me for other reasons-he knew I wouldn't want the house to be messy when Laura came to our house for the first time! Anyways, here is the video Joey captured of me being a jerk and my surprise when I saw Laura. Its pretty funny. And a little embarassing:)
