Talk about a phone call…

Aug 22, 2007

and one I will nev­er for­get. Get­ting the call from Pat­ty Craft say­ing I was a Mem­o­ry Mak­ers Mas­ter for 2008 is just so over­whelm­ing. I can’t believe my name is among this group of tal­ent. I go from being shocked, to wired to dazed. Here is a lit­tle bit about my call.

August 20, 2008 (9:39 a.m.)

I had pret­ty much giv­en up over the week­end. I thought for sure the calls had already been made and some very hap­py ladies were bounc­ing off the walls. Sat­ur­day, Alan even brought me flow­ers as he could tell I was a bit down. So I stayed up real­ly late Sun­day night work­ing on a project. This is always great ther­a­py. I was up until 4 in the morn­ing. So Mon­day morn­ing the phone rings at 9:39! I am still in bed half awake and I see a 513 area code. I think no way.… I was scared to answer the phone. All I heard was… “is Lisa there this is (did not hear a name at all due to shock) my mind went blank. Every word sound­ed like Char­lie Brown’s teacher, you know the sound. Then I hear you are one of the MMM win­ners! I just sat on the edge of my bed with tun­nel vision, my dogs jump­ing all over me won­der­ing what was going on cause all I could say was OMG.… OMG.… OMG… I can hard­ly remem­ber the phone call. My mind just went blank. I could not believe I was sit­ting on the edge of my bed talk­ing to Pat­ty Craft… oh I had to ask who I was talk­ing to cause I could not remem­ber her name. Heck I was doing good to remem­ber my own name. It tru­ly is a moment I will nev­er for­get. I still can­not believe it when I see my name list­ed. Mon­day, I checked the caller ID on my phone so many times to make sure I real­ly did get that call that I lost count. Not being able to shout it out to every­one was so darn hard.

I am so look­ing for­ward to get­ting to know all MMM for 2008. I am sure this will be a year we all will nev­er for­get.
