Can you say......ROAD TRIP!

That's right!

Angel has "given me permission" to take a few days off of work including the weekend to go visit one of my best friends in Houston.
(of course I still have to get the go-ahead from work but I'm sure that won't be a problem)

Now I say "given me permission" like that because, although I could just come out and tell Angel, "Look, I'm going to go on vacation for a few days in Houston with Jenn to see Lisa and you will be staying home with the kids, period." I'd rather not go that route because our relationship isn't based on being like that to each other.

So basically it all happened like this (here's the Cliff's Notes version):

"Hey Angel, I want to go visit Lisa in Houston at the end of the month for a few days. Would that be alright? Yeah?? You sure? You wanna go? No? Okay. You sure? Okay. Do I have to take the kids? No? You sure? You're gonna stay here with them? For real? Dude, are you sure cause you know... I'm going to be gone for like FOUR days right? Alright, alright. (inside I'm doing the happy dance) Well, alright then, thanks for letting me go by myself."

He says: "Yeah, well, she's always comes to visit you so you may as well go and see her. I'll stay here."

Me: "Okay, well, Jenn said she'll take time off and ride up there with me so I won't have to ride by myself cause you know how dangerous that can be...out myself. I don't even know the roads that well. (inside I'm yelling "ROAD TRIP!")

Let me give you a little history about my 2 best friends in the whole world.

1. I've known Lisa longer, since around the time I was pregnant with Dom. That puts the time frame at around 14 yrs. We've been through a lot together. I'm truly blessed to have a couple of friends that have been with me so long and are still here with me. I talk to them on a regular basis and I mean 3-4 times a week. Sometimes we have these stretches where we always talk in the morning on our way to work just to bullshit.

She's come to visit me three times and I've been to see her once.

I'm due.

2. Jenn and I have been best friends since those days of massage and lingerie (you'll have to reference past posts on your own to know what I'm talking about. NOT YOU DOM!!! TURN AWAY NOW! I could put a link but it's late and I've been drinking in celebration ever since being given the "go ahead")
She's been my best friend for 12 years now.
She and I are always in contact. We are always visiting because we only live about two hrs away from each other. Angel is living during the week/working in Corpus and if Jenn can come for the weekend he will bring her for me and take her back when he goes.

There are very few times that all three of us actually get together...we might as well plan it on every eclipse.

Regardless, us girls are going to get together for about four nights and do that whole sisterhood of the ya-ya pants or whatever.

It's going to be awesome and there's going to be lots of pictures.


Dom has been writing in his blog again a little bit. I'm going to be pushing him to write more and be more creative because Angel and I are worried about him not getting enough experience with other things due to being in this new school. And by "other things" I mean, Orchestra..Chess club. ..all of the extra curricular activities provided in public school.
Stupid schools.

We'll figure it out. He seems happy here and he likes the main objective of this school. So no need yanking him up from it now.


Whoo hooo....ROAD TRIP!

Andy: What about #2? The Dom part? cause he's always reading and now I'm acutely aware of it.

Mom: It's the only way to ask.

Capricorn: If you can work it out..I would love to hang out.

My wife gave me permission once to go to Virgina all by myslef to visit her brother. It was amazing, so much time allllll to myself!
Tell Dom blogging is also a great way to meet hot soccer moms, motivation is key to getting men to do anything.
