rock and roll baby - we're back in action

i'm back at school. things are organized, i feel prepared. i was so excited to see my lil' buggers this morning. sweet, smiling, sun-kissed faces. i love that sign of spring the most! we'll see how long this attitude lasts. ;)

my extended weekend at heather's was awesome. apparently i wasn't PC, but i thought i was on decent behavior. i had a nice time with the kids. i had some adventures with heather. (dead car batteries, i didn't realize forces one to eat a cinnabon!) my parents made it - so i even snuck in some snuggle time with neddie.

the drive to and fro wasn't bad, either. granted, i might've been just having too much fun with kim, but i think i could handle that drive on my own. its less than 12 hours, only a little more than a tank and a half of petrol, and i could go 90 miles an hour through most of idaho & utard. so. its doable. good news for my frequenting of the vancouver area. bad news for the small town idaho drivers who like to go out cruising on a monday afternoon. i almost rammed a bunch of people - "just to teach them a lesson."

and then there was the motorcyclist who didn't feel the need for a helmet, but he definitely had a shovel strapped to the windshield of his bike. what?!? we had many a laughs at that guy's expense.

the funniest thing that happened yesterday though was when we were approaching some mountain pass in Oregon... It had a electrical marquee warning us of "winter driving conditions ahead." we braced ourselves... for nothing. maybe some light flurries. but it was nothing to slow down over. and then when we passed this huge massive snow plow, and kim taunted him by saying, "you've been sent out on a fool's errand!" i don't know why, but that tickled my fancy something fierce. i love witty people, who can come up with that kinda crap in a flash. ahh good times.

ok. the kids are finishing their handwriting. i need to go be Miss Jones again.

Motorcycle shovel guy would have been the butt of a few jokes in my car as well. Glad you had a good trip. And even gladder (yes, I know it isn't a word) that you are Miss Jones again :)

"You've been sent on a fools errand." Heeheeheee that just made me chuckle. That Kim is one funny gal(just like Miss Jones:)

Christie said...

I liked the fool's errand comment too. I'm so not witty.

back to school, back to school, to prove to miss jones that i'm not a fool.

sounds like a great trip! i think road trippin' with hayley would be rather amusing, to say the least.

You really never know when you're going to need to dig your motorbike out of a snow embankment. While it might seem crazy to you - I bet that guy was a boy scout. Always be prepared! haha. Glad you had fun!

Kristin said...

I'm so glad that you had such a great time off track. Welcome back to the swing of things!

That was a fun trip! Here I go calling you NOT PC the one time that you were. hehe. You are lots of fun and i would not change one thing about you. Thanks for being there for me, on all adventures like the dead battery and ultrasound. xo
