full to bursting


my parents are nuts.

yesterday, the first day of their summer vacation, they spontaneously got in their car with some omaha steaks and drove 8 1/2 hours to my house for dinner. yes, you read that right. dinner. and it was a lovely, tasty dinner, after which we hung out and be-ed a family. and then at 9 this morning they left for their return trip. may i remind you at this point that The Girls are going to their house on sunday, and staying til the end of the month... i mean, it's not as though they aren't going to see them!

so we let the girls stay home a bit this morning, for bagels & toast all together, and a little bit of couch snuggling. then we all said good bye at the front door and headed off to school, work, and.... kentucky.

nuts
, i tell you.

it was ridiculous, true. but it was also the good stuff - the stuff life ought to be made of. and now i start my day with a heart that is fat and happy... full of the good stuff.

So THAT'S where those Omaha Steaks went!! I was looking for those last night and had to settle for a damn egg & green pepper sandwich, because I couldn't find them.

Boo!

WOW that's CRAZY. I can't believe they drove down for dinner and they left for Kentucky all ready. So my testing today was a little rediculous. I sat in there with the principal and it took forever on the testing.
