So we’re finally home.
Pinky Eye is still reigning supreme over my eyes, the kids are clear… now it’s just me. I’m wondering if Pink eye is like Chicken Pox, the older you are, the worse it is. Because this is just awful.
So let’s talk about the trip to mom’s, over there in Aggieland.
Mom has been a tad bit incapacitated as of late because she tripped over my youngest brother’s dog and bashed her nose, blackened her eyes, hairline fractured both wrists and jacked up her tailbone… all in one swift dog induced blunder.
So… back to Aggieland.
Dad is moving home from Australia for good on the 22nd!! Cue the choirs of angels.
In order to have her house cleaned and decorated in time for the 2 glorious events: Dad coming home and Christmas…
It was Rachel to the rescue.
I pulled a Cinderella and tackled the house. 4 1/2 hours later – not bad, looks gorgeous..
I was rewarded with Chipotle. If you don’t know Chipotle.. you are missing out. This is an addiction. I am constantly harrassing, er, appealing to them to build one down here.
No such luck.
Anywhoo… Chipotle. MMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM. (Channeling Homer Simpson) MMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM Chipotle.
Anyhooo… *wiping drool*
After my delectable meal of a massive steak burrito from Chipotle. I went back to mom’s house to tackle the beast, I mean tree.
After a couple hours, nearly losing a finger, 1000 lights, a few choice expletives and a couple of beers. I won.
That night my darlin’ brothers and I ventured out to Wings’n’More for some fried pickles
Yum!! Ice Cold Beers, and some Buffalo tenders and Wings.
Have I mentioned that Fried Pickles rock!!
Yes, it is a southern thing.
Finally to end our weekend and complete the title trilogy…
Princess wanted to sleep with her Bebe…
She rolls over to lie face to face with Bebe and says:
“Bebe, can you stop breathing. Your breath smells like stinky swamp juice”
Feel free to laugh hysterically. We did, I still do everytime I think of that!!
Finally, we’re home… we’re in our own beds (4 1/2 hour trip)
It was wonderful, it was exhausting, it was action packed.
So Here’s to Stinky Swamp Juice, Fried Pickles and Christmas Trees!
