The buses rolled in around 9:45pm loaded with exhausted and hyper kids. I think I was the only parent crying, I’ll let you decided why. I managed to find DD rather quickly and we loaded her stuff in and headed out fast without running over anyone.
She was totally exhausted, running a slight temp and had a croaky voice. Once we got home I fixed her some tea and listened to the dramas and adventures. There were some rumors of someone getting caught with beer, but not her. I think she’s still friends with the girls she roomed with although I’m not sure. They never did find out who the pee-perpetrator was, which is probably just as well – all 14 year old boys are just nasty. (Which begs the question why would a Barbie Doll teacher want to do the nasty with one – ewwwww.)
I called her in sick this morning (she didn’t stir at all when I got up and showered) so I just left her sleeping. I would have gone in to check that she was still breathing but you can’t even get into her room.
She brought me back a souvenir (a Jim Morrison poster) specifically the one I had hangin over my bed as a teenager. As in this (see below) Jim Morrison poster. It still makes my heart go pitter-pat. It’s that bad boy thing ya know.
Hmmm I’m not quite sure what this says about how she thinks of me…. I guess I’ll have to hang him next to the Johnny Depp Pirates of the Caribbean (light box movie poster that came direct from the Disney vaults – Thanks Jon!)
On the knitting front the
hopefully last skein of handspun merino is still drying. I should be able to knit up the sleeves this weekend.
In the meantime I’ve managed to missplace the cashmere I wanted to knit a hat out of. Since I need to be knitting something so I started yet another pair of socks in Regia Crazy Colors 6 ply color Passion – purty huh?
This weekend I think I’ll start cleaning out the sun (three season) room. For some reason it ends up being the dump/mud room in the winter and all the junk collects there along with the recycling. I hate recycling. I love the idea of it, but it’s such a messy pain in the butt. But now that spring is coming and with daylight savings just around the corner, I need to spruce up my favorite spot in the whole world.
Updates on the trip to come I’m sure
