RHYMES WITH ORANGE.

Well, actually, NOTHING rhymes with Orange. At least, not in the English language. I am so sly and tricky. In the car last night we were "throwing words out there" and the idea was to find a word that rhymed with the "thrown out" word. My kids were doing very well. Until I rememebered something I learned in school, eons ago.

And I won. Because I cheated. Because nothing truly rhymes with "Orange." Was that mean?

So, I need to go buy a dress for my sister's wedding today. I know, I'm a big time procrastinator, and I'm flying out there tomorrow, yadda yadda yadda. I was waiting for the Big Sale, so that's my defense, and I'm sticking to it. (Cassie if you're reading this, take a deep breath, all is well.)

I've bought some hefty books I've been itching to read, downloaded movies and TV epidodes on my iTouch, and I'm READY for the long flights. Thing One and I are going to have some serious "mommy/daughter" bonding time, and it will be nice, since we butt heads a lot. She seems to think she's older and smarter than me (at age ten, of all things) and I KNOW I'm older and smarter than her, so we are at odds sometimes. This trip will be great for us.

So, here's the bad news, for my one devoted reader. :-) I won't be blogging until I get back, so the blog will return on Tuesday, May 27th.

I know, you're so bummed. I am going to RELAX and not spend a lot of time on the computer. I will be "reconnecting" with the family I haven't seen in years. It's been way too long.

I'm sure Hubby will be texting me every ten minutes or so: Where's the diaper ointment? Does he like Bananas? Are the boys supposed to be playing on your computer?

Maybe I'll turn off my phone...hmmm...tempting.

I hope everyone has a safe and happy Memorial Day!

I'm ok with you not having a dress yet, and for a bride, I'm moderatly calm, but if one more person complains about it being on Memorial weekend and they have a GAZILLION other things they could have been doing, I'll go nuts! (I did it so that people would be able to come *pout*)

I'm ok with you not blogging, because for the first time in a long time, I'll know what you're up to! Yay!! :D

-sis (2 more days!)

You know, this part doesn't get better until they're about 30. Really. I have a teenager and a 9-1/2 year old (that 1/2 is Very Important, you know) who both think they're smarter and know more. Sometimes, the 9 year old is actually WORSE than the teen.

Have a fun trip. See you when you return!
