There and Back

We are home from our short visit to Hurley. We attended the wedding reception of one of my friends. She looked beautiful. I'd show you photos, but again I forgot my camera. How I keep forgetting the dang thing is beyond me. I was going to take some pics with my cell phone, but it is extremely frustrating. The lag  is horrible, though I didn't buy the phone to take photos so... I was nice to see some people I hadn't seen in a while and a little shocking in the big scheme of things how much we have all grown and changed. It was a lot of fun seeing our kids playing/dancing together. It would have been nice to have had a little more time in a different venue to sit and talk for a while, but what can you do? Miss Peanut Butter tore up the dance floor. The band they had wasn't the best they took a lot of breaks in the 2 hrs after they started. We left early since PB was looking exhausted and since she was so excited to dance she wouldn't eat anything, so she was hungry. She actually said, "I'm starving."
Four plus hours in the car was a bit much for the girl. I thought I had enough to keep her busy and the DVD player kept acting up. She did sleep the last hour or so both ways. J has to go back up again on Thursday for deer hunting. He wasn't to excited about going up this weekend, but he went. He got to take some of his gear up on this trip so it wasn't a total loss.
I am on vacation this week. I may work overtime tomorrow which is my regular day off, since I will be off until the 25th after that. I was going to work a day next week too on overtime, but J reminded me that I was on a furlough week so if I worked "overtime" it wouldn't technically be overtime, I'd be paid straight time. I'm thinking I might not do that since it is almost a 100 dollar difference.

Four hours with a dodgy dvd player spells disaster. Our dvd player decided to die while Hubby was in Iraq-- strangest thing is it started working again about a week before he got back.

I would have LOVED to see photos of PB on the dance floor. You're going to have to have the camera stitched into your coat or something. :-)
