Well now I've gone and done it.
Inspired by the fact that Jude's school has THREE half-day Fridays almost every month this school year (the Archdiocese of LA is mandating some sort of Catholic school teacher training- I have no idea why), I went slightly mad and purchased Disneyland Annual Passes for Jude and I! I got the really super cheap ones for SoCal residents that you can only use on weekdays. But I figure that if we take off right after the half-days on Fridays, we can get to Disney by 1:00, and stay until the park closes. I'm kind of excited. Let me know if any of you want to join us. So yesterday, Jude had the entire day off school, and we headed out to christen the new passes. Jude's friend George and his wonderful mom, Julie, met us there, and we had a great, if exhausting, day. These passes are park-hoppers, meaning we can go back and forth from Disneyland to Disney's California Adventure. So we finally got to check out the new Cars Land attraction...
Good job, Disney. I fear I will be seeing quite a bit more of this place over the next year.
After last week's rant on word problems, Sarah at 32 Flavors sent me this...
Guess what? Jude joined the cross country team at school!
Guess what? I volunteered to run with the kids in training! First practice was this morning at 7:00am!
(that was me, smashing my forehead into the keyboard in disgust at my own stupidity)
Hey guys, on Thursday morning, could you send out prayers/white light/good vibes/whatever you believe in for my mil Mommy? She's going in for cataract surgery. It's not serious, but I'd really appreciate the prayers. I had a wonderful moment the other day, when I truly reveled in my good fortune that I have a mother-in-law I enjoy so much. Mommy and I got into such a giggling fit on the phone that we both were crying - couldn't stop laughing. I was teasing her about Pop having to take care of her after her operation. We decided she needed to get a little bell, and just ring it all the time to torture him. Or better yet, take her cell phone upstairs and call him downstairs on the main phone. "Steve! Come fluff my pillows." "Steve! I need a little snack." "Steve! Could you bring me a vodka tonic?" Hehehehe.
Okay, I'm afraid that's all I have in me today. Too much Disneyland and cross country. Go see Stacy and the others.
