Oh, my older kids are home from school today. Not a planned absence either. The dumb school bus never showed up this morning. Usually the bus picks them up about three blocks away at 7:20. They get there around 7:16 to make sure they don't miss it. Well, at 8:16, one hour later, still no bus!

We called the school and they were like "We have three buses running late, we know. Thanks." Click.
Uhhh, ok. How rude. *****. So after my kids, and several others were left standing on a street corner for an hour they finally just walked home. I don't have the mini van, Ruben does, so I had no choice but to let them stay home.

Now I don't know if this will be an unexcused absence or not as I'm sure eventually a bus showed up, but seriously, how long are you supposed to leave kids hanging around on a street corner before it just becomes ridiculous? And we didn't even have an estimated time of arrival, just one rude sentence and a hang up.

Whatever. I told them not to worry about it. They are in their rooms reading now.

Molly, where you at girl? You're being nominated left and right here!

What else? Oh yeah. Creepy dancing baby, but Ally McBeal rocked!

Courtney, you're not missing anything important on FB. Just Diva silliness. lol


I can't remember what else I wanted to say. Should've multi-quoted. Oh well. Hope you are all having a good morning so far!
Ditto to what Beth says! She helped me trim down my multiquoting by giving me the cliff notes (this is exactly what I am going to need for the next week, so keep it up!)

Same with my Sister with the cancer. Not sure how she will do. Normally she is like me...........a real commando type and go go go............and loves all the rides. I'm anxious to see her, and see how she is doing. All of her hair is gone, so she will be donning hats and scarfs. She hates her wig. Says it itches like heck!

Did I mention that we will also be going to Club 33 on this trip? Yep!
Mel, how fun for your family to make these kinds of memories, especially given your sister's health and your mom being able to still do Disney in her 80s! Have a wonderful time at Clubb 33. It truly is the kind of place to do a once in a lifetime celebration!

Yay for the Clark County school district. Only the finest for us here in Las Vegas. And to think... this is before the budget and salary cuts for next year!

That's wonderful news! I'm so happy to hear that. It will make what is already a special trip, even more so.

I dunno. I did find it hard to believe that in an hour they couldn't get their act together. Or at least tell the parents calling in, because I'm certain many of them were, what to expect, or an apology or something. I'm sure she was frazzled but no need to be rude and hang up on someone.

Oh well. No big deal I guess. It's almost the end of the year, I doubt they are missing much. And I'm not so old that I can't remember as a kid when something would happen and for some reason we'd have an unexpected day off from school, that just made it the best day ever.
I'll let them read for a bit longer, and then maybe we'll watch a movie or bake some cookies, or something. Might as well enjoy the time with them.

Mel I hope your sister enjoys the trip and that is so awesome that you guys get to go to Club 33. SOME day I hope to go there!! Take lots of pics for us!!

And Beth that is just unacceptable. I don't care how frazzled she is there is no excuse to be rude. And that is just dangerous to leave kids standing that long. That is why I don't let my kids ride the bus because I have always been afraid of something like that and who knows what could happen. I would def be ticked at her attitude. But at least like you said you can have a fun day anyway!

I have to make 2 apts today and have called both docs office and got no answer on one and a busy signal since YESTERDAY at the other so I just gave up and said to heck with it LOL. I have just been on here and tackling my unending mound of laundry LOL. Have you ever noticed how those laundry piles never seem to get any smaller. HMMM.... And I just got an e-mail that swim was cancelled tonight because the pool pump broke. I can't say that I am sad about that LOL. I just wish it was tomorrow night though cuz tomorrow is when they have church and that way they could actually go for the entire time for once and not miss it! Plus since church is almost over for the year they are letting them have themes each week and the girls can't really do anything cuz they have to come straight from swim. Like tomorrow is twin day. I feel bad for them cuz they really want to participate but can't. Oh well. At least it is almost over. I hate to admit it but I am glad cuz that is one less thing we have to deal with.

Anywho I hear the dryer calling me so I better go switch another load. See ya later.

I do love the idea of an ice cream meet. I've never eaten at the Gibson Girl ice cream parlor.
I LOVE Gibson Girl...it is not a trip to the park without! And the line goes very quickly!

Ok, so I am just back from Reno and today is my DS's 4th Birthday! We had his pictures taken last night and he did such a good job...then we took my mom to The Keg for dinner....really expensive and sooo not worth it! Oh well. My son painted me a flower pot and picked out a plant to put in it for mothers day, it is so cute....he can't paint worth beans so it is just colors all mushed together, but he had so much fun and was so proud of it and I love it! He gave me the best hug ever when he came to pick me up at the airport too! Reno was sad...all boarded up. It was good seeing my friend, though, and I got addicted to Bejeweled Blitz.

I am with you about Club 33 and Laundry...Dh didn't do any while I was gone. How sweet. We did one load last night and tonight I get to do the rest though I think I will take ds to McD's so he can play in the play place. He loves that and it's his birthday...we aren't having the party till this weekend.

Hi Beth! Hey, the Mandalay has a special going right now for rooms and tickets to the Lion King. I'm sure you have seen it? Something like $215.00 a night, but that includes 2 tickets to the play!! Now that is a good deal!! Or another one for $99.00 a night.

Hi Kelly! Busy, busy, busy!!

I wouldn't give it a second thought. Let them have a good ole fun day off. Of course, maybe this wasn't your plan for a fun day off?

Hi Sarah! My DH will do the laundry.............but you have to be careful what gets into the basket. My DD put a brand new all cotton white sweater in it, and he put it into the hottest bleachiest load possible! I was unloading the washer this morning and found it. Uh oh.......................so it is now air drying. Hope it didn't shrink too much!

Hey, how is the makeover process going?

I've never been either that I can remember. I was going to finally try it on my last trip and the line was forever! I didn't have forever so I went onto my apple pie cararmel apple instead.

I guess so!

We need to form a club!

By the way, I keep meaning to tell you, that if I were you, I'd be happier going to Catalina verses Ensenada. Hopefully that makes you feel a little better. Maybe?
