Funny, we know the person’s family that came up with that slogan. I didn’t get arrested and I had a good visit. Our dog on the other hand … well, he’s glad to be home!
I was hoping to get on the road by noon a week ago Thursday … well, we didn’t get on the road until 1 – 1:30pm Made it to my sister’s house around 8:30pm. Friday hubby had his first class. I dropped my sister at work so I could use her car to meet my friend. It was a cool little 50’s diner with really good food! As he says, the years melted away as we picked up where we left off in 1974. We both talked the hours away. Before we knew it, it was after 12pm. Heck we could have had lunch and probably talked until it was time for me to pick up my sister. However, I knew my dog was stressed so I had to go back to the house and let him out. I’m real glad we had time to visit and catch up on all those years!
The dog was stressed because my niece has a kitten. A very active little kitty that I called “snot ball” … for good reason. His name is really Romper. Poor Freddie, when we’d go to my sister’s, he was the prince of the house … now he’s not and he pouted the whole time we were there. He was sure anxious to get in his box for the drive home.
It has been a year since we’ve had a cat in our home. It’s amazing how being around a cat and the litter box affected our breathing. We both had to use our inhaler more often than we do here. We miss our kitty, but definately not the litter box.
Saturday I spent the afternoon with my daughter, her husband and my granddaughter. What a blast I had. I was wrong, my granddaughter is going to be 12 in a week. And she is still in the loveable preteen age. She’d put her head on my shoulder as we rode the tram. She’d tell me about what happened at school, when we were away from her dad and my daughter. She let me put my arm around her as we walked along the strip and hooked arms going through the casinos. These new fancy casinos have the water flowing over the wall, so we did what most kids would do, and ran our fingers along the wall as we walked. It was hard for her parents to tell her not to do that, when grandma was doing the same thing. HAH! I Love it!! For a chocolate lover like me, we stopped at Jean Phillips pastry shop. They had chocolate fountains of both white and dark chocolate and what looked like a caramel fountain. The were overhead and behind glass. Yeah, I could have jumped right in! Well, actually climbed up to it!
That night we (sis, her hubby, my hubby and me) went to my (sister’s younger son) nephew’s house. He had just bought a house in a hidden area off Oakey and Rancho Rd. WOW, is this house a great entertaining house!! I’m so happy for them as they’ve been looking for a long time. Great buyer’s market right now. He fixed steaks and potatoes. For dessert, we had Marie Calendar’s pies. Yummy!
Sunday was sis’s grandson’s one year old birthday party (Her older son’s boy). That little guy is so cute!! Food was yummy and it was good to see the rest of my family that lives in Vegas. Of course the Viking game was playing and I had to curb my yelling while we were at the party. I had warned all my nephews that if I burst out yelling, it was because I forgot where I was and to not mind me! When we got back to my sister’s house, I commenced the yelling. My niece was in the far back of the house and she comes running up to the front room. She thought I was yelling at her until she realized I was watching the game. LOL … too funny.
I was ready to go home. It was a busy weekend. Hubby missed out on alot as his classes went late. The only thing he made it to was on Saturday for dinner. Sunday his class ran pretty late as they had to cram 4 days worth of information in 3 days. So he didn’t get home until 7:30-8pm. Once again we didn’t get on the road until 1:30, closer to 2pm. But it was a good drive even though hubby’s mind was still swimming with information.
