Hello! Sorry I've been gone. We took a nice little family trip to hell, and then just when we made our collective way back into the land of the living, The-Guy and I went to Michigan for a wedding.
I'm not going to invade Older Gal's privacy (at least any more than usual). So I can't divulge too very much about hell except this: I've been paid back in full. My advice is NOT to put your stepdaughter-type-person's soul up for sale on ebay. It's like all kinds of bad karma.
I have collected some nice pictures during my absence though. I puzzle over this on the way to school each day:I can't quite capture just how desolate this area is. See how lonesome the stroller looks over there by the black and yellow striped diagonal striped sign?First of all, who the heck locks up a $10 stroller? Surely the lock must cost almost as much as the stroller itself.
Secondly, where do these people go every day? There is NOTHING around. They didn't park the stroller and go into Target. That bridge is over a bayou and the brick wall surrounds the city water works. Across the bayou there's a police station. That's it.
In other adventures, Michigan was a very nice place to visit. Although, they can be a little controlling when it comes to the speed limits: Because 16 mph would be too slow, and 18 to fast, obviously.
I had no idea the chicken vs. cow wars had heated up to this extent, PETA be damned:Last but not least, I heard this REALLY improves compliance among illiterate dogs:I'm sure there's a lot less dog poop on these people's yard now.
One week left on the end of school countdown!
