Morning ladies.


Back to the grind.


I'm working on a blog about my trip.

Well I managed to pick up B from school, run by the grocery store, and get the kids fed.

Lori-it's great to have you back. I'll have to read your blog when I have a few more minutes. Glad you & DH have things mostly worked out. Will keep you in my thoughts.

Serena-Glad you did so well at the yard sale & had a good party.

We had a crazy busy-but wonderful weekend. The highlights were that Calla scored 2 goals at soccer yesterday. She was so much more aggressive than the 1st week & had a great time too. She was delighted with her goals & thrilled when the game ended after only 3 quarters (because it started to snow so hard!) It was cold-but fun. Then we drove about 2.5 hours away & bought a tent trailer. I am so happy with it. It's 5 years old-but very clean & looks like it's hardly been used. The guy we got it from was wonderful & so helpful. However-it was 9:30 before we got home & then DH was trying to back the trailer into the garage in the dark with Lacey screaming in the back seat. I was directing him-but he couldn't see me so I was yelling & our driveway is right next to the neighbors bedrooms. So I was afraid I'd wake their kids. (I talked to them this morning & they heard us but the kids didn't wake-phew!) But we got it settled & are all good. It was 1/3 of the price of a new one too-which is the best part in my mind. Can't wait to get out camping now!

I have a relatively slow week here this week. We are supposed to get the final word on the monorail tomorrow (I've heard that before) so I might be busier than I think.

Deanna-10 loads of laundry?!?!? Holy cow! That's amazing. Good luck with that. Last week our team was the one that didn't score. They only play 3 on 3 so it's hard to get them to do much. This week they were much better.

Our 1st camping trip will be the 1st weekend in June-unless we decide to get out for Memorial Day weekend too. We are meeting my parents at a hot springs. We went last year & stayed in the little (crappy but ok) motel with them last year & had a great time. The food at the place was INCREDIBLE (especially for being in the middle of no where Montana) and there was a crystal park where you can go dig your own crystals. Calla had a blast doing that & has been begging to go back. There is a little RV park in the back of the motel so we'll do that for $15/night instead of the $65/night motel. And we can go to the hot pool for free while we stay! My parents go for a Nature Conservancy birding thing on Thursday/Friday & then we come down on Friday for the weekend. Can't wait!

Deanna-I would never make it on Survivor either! Those people are insane!!! We are pretty modern in our camping. Especially now with a trailer. I mean we have running water & heat! Nothing really rough about it.

Got another note from Calla's school that another child "might" have lice. They are talking about bringing a nurse into the school for hair checks. I'm all for it! Gross gross gross! We have been checking her hair 2 times a day for almost 2 weeks now. So far I haven't seen anything-but then again I don't really know what I'm looking for-so there's a chance I've missed it. I doubt it-but...
