The time has come to plan for the annual road trip with the munchkins. It was to be Canada, but it has been revised. After much deliberation (discussion at Sunday dinner for five minutes) it has been decided that we will travel to Williamsburg, VA. This will be our home base. I have one teeny, tiny problem, I think. It has a pool, but it also has..........a hot tub or a whirlpool, I'm not what the heck it is called. It's what I fell into in Niagra Falls. With my camera. Fully clothed. I shall try to be more careful this year, but I am getting older, and I tend to forget things.
I have placed the reservations, I have rented the van and I have done some research, and I think I am good to go. The kids seem okay with the choice, and I so look forward to these road trips. It is so fun to get the kids away from parents and fill their heads with all kinds of good stuff that I think is important.
I was the "mystery reader" for Monkeyboy's class. I did this earlier in the year, and I am amazed at how much the kids grew since I last saw them. Thanks to Wacky Mommy, I had some good books, and the kids were delightful as usual. I asked the school if they had volunteers, and they said no. How odd is that? I love being around the kids, seeing their excitement.
As I drove to work this morning I saw that there are buds on the magnolia tree in the city. I am getting increasingly excited for spring. Bird rode his motorcycle to work today, so you know it must be getting warmer.
I had lunch with my friend, Kate. We are both on Weight Watchers. I am two pounds from my goal and Kate won't talk about it. We went to Peppi's. They have the bests hoagies and greasy french fries. We didn't bother to count points today. Talk about people watching! Kate watches and has a comment about everyone, not mean comments, just very funny.
This week is the Home and Garden Show. I am going because my back yard is a mess, and I want to dig it all up and start again. *sigh* I am kind of excited about it. But I have no idea of what to do, that's why I am going.
Happy Friday everyone!
