Spring Break

It is the night before my test & I am going to bed soon. I always feel like a good night's sleep helps more than cramming all night, if I can't think clearly, I'm toast. My husband & I have a secret: we told the kids we aren't going anywhere for Spring Break, but we're actually going to Florida! We're springing it on them tomorrow night, and we leave Friday. I had looked into flying to Florida a couple of weeks ago, and all the flights were booked up and expensive, so I kind of gave up on the idea, but then I ran into a neighbor, who suggested we drive, and it was like *lightbulb* I never considered driving. So I called a place in Panama City Beach (a 16 hour drive) made the reservations, and we are leaving Friday. Wish me luck, I am a little apprehensive about 3 kids + 1 Minivan + 1 cranky husband + 16 hour road trip, but worst case scenario, I get lots of knitting in and we have memorable family trip, right? And on the way back, we are staying here and going to the Grand Ole Opry, so that I can have a hillbilly moment, like when I lived in Kentucky. Actually my husband loves country music so I booked it for him. Group, I miss you desperately & will see you in 2 weeks!

Feelin Groovy

So I had to delete my London calling post because someone posted a comment that was basically an ad for bongs! I mean I haven't even seen a bong for over 20 years, and suddenly they are throwing themselves at me, sheesh. In unrelated news, last night I had a dream about Baltimore, my husband and I were driving in from the Baltimore airport & I was telling him how ugly Baltimore was, but then Baltimore made me a liar because the sky was all pink and blue and we were driving on a bridge over water and you could see the beautiful museums and buildings, including some shaped like people and animals in a Matisse way, but then *WAKE UP* it was a dream! Baltimore is still ugly. You don't drive over water into the city and there are no beautiful buildings. Okay, the aquarium is nice, same with the Whole Foods in Fells Point. P.S. I don't want any comments from Baltimorons defending their city, this is my opinion & I have a right to it. I studied all day yesterday & plan on doing the same today. 4 more days till my test, then I'm free to spend all my time knitting, improving my blog, gardening, and whatever else I feel like doing!

The End of the Affair

Well, my torrid affair with Frank is nearly over. I probably only have another 20 minutes or so to spend with him, then our relationship will move to a more platonic one, that is I'll just wrap him around my neck. Thanks to Tamara for taking this picture of us together at Group so that I can remember the good times Frank & I had together. In other news, I'm leaving for Europe in 12 hours, ack! I've got a million things to do before I leave, so I gotta go.
