This past weekend Jennifer, her two kids, my two kids, and I all went on a little adventure! It was a last minute type thing, but so much fun. We were going to seeing someone, didn't get to see them after all but we had a total blast! OK, so some parts were not so fun. Like the kids asking over and over again if we were in Clyde, Are we in Abilene, Look there's a hotel, we can stay there......that part was not so fun. But the overall trip was great. It had been a really long time since Jennifer and I had been on a trip together. Alexis even managed to keep her teenage angst to a minimum! I was very impressed with that. On our way down, we stopped in Hico (pronounced Hi Co, not heeco like we thought) to eat dinner. The restaurant was super cute. Hico's claim to fame is that Billy the Kid died on a sidewalk. They have this little cute museum and stuff. This Saturday they're evening having Billy the Kid Day. How cool is that? We stayed the night at a hotel in Salado then drove the last little bit Sunday morning. After we found out we would be unable to visit the person we had gone to visit we started back home. I was really scared Jennifer was going to be mad because we wasted all that time, but she was really super sweet and supportive. She said she knew I was upset, so there was no need in being mean. I'm so glad I have a nice sister. On the way back we stopped and ate in Clifton. We ate a little Mexican food place. It was OK, they were doing some fundraiser for "Darcy" on 3/31/09. I really want to know who Darcy is. In the next little town, they had "Pray for Darcy" up on a marque. Which made me want to know who Darcy is even more!!! I wish I would of been brave and asked the waitress. Oh well, I guess it'll just have to be an unsolved mystery for me. I was so happy to be home last night though. I was even happier when I walked into my house. We found out we were leaving, and were packed to go within an hour! And when I got home my house was clean! Because it was clean when we left. I love coming home to a clean house. I love that most of the time (except when people come over to pick up a movie) it's clean and presentable. Have I mentioned that I love my house? Well, in case you forgot, I do love it.
Tonight we're going to Abilene to eat dinner with my Mom to celebrate her birthday. Then tomorrow I have to pack everything for my kids to be gone for the next 5 days and for me to be in the hospital. I can't wait for my kids to see what little treasures I got for them. They're going to love them!!!
