our time spent in big d, really mesquite home of the "skeeters" was well, kinda boring. a lot of time entertaining ourselves in the hotel while watching limited t.v. and drawing on every surface imaginable, encompassed our mainstay of activities. imagine this picture drawn on deposit slips, note pads, toilet paper, and accidentally, bed sheets 452 times.
we did have the "sangria" play date topped with uncle julio's mucho deliciouso mexican food (whatever on the spelling of damn good food. i don't know me no spanish). both events were totally worth the drive but not too kind to my waistline.
after deciding we would rather sleep in our beds saturday night so not to be late for viewing the lame-o oscars on sunday, we drove back to okc through what i thought for sure was armageddon. as i am a minor/major sinner, i thought for sure i missed the memo and had been skipped over, left to rot on this dusty earth. if you live in the midwest, then you know what i'm talking about. DUST-STORM 2007! with white knuckles clenched to my steering wheel while driving in 60 mile an hour murky, sandy winds with children screaming, "i want more scooby doo! where's my froggy? where's bunny? i want candy! where's daddy! why am i here and what is the meaning of this life without chocolate milk?" seemly made mommy a tad bit crabby.
ready for a stiff drink upon arrival, another surprise was waiting for us, our garage door careened off it's tracks and almost brutally abused my car. luckily, my hero, equipped with a cigarette, a cocktail and a hammer, worked out the problem.
now back to your regularly scheduled programming:
overheard while trying to finish this painfully sad post.

sissy needs to cleaning up her room too for babies to come and stay here in her room.
what? does she know something i don't?
