I took yesterday and today off from my paying job to prepare for RAGBRAI and instead I’m sitting here typing. Because we thought it would be too hot to ride today…ummm, it’s not.
And I feel dumb for not going. It’s on the bucket list. I could have gone, but…
I made some promises to a five year old, so here I sit.
I also just needed some “get my shit in order before school starts” days, because I just looked at our calendar for August, and almost threw up.
THERE ARE ONLY THREE WEEKS TILL SCHOOL STARTS!!!
Oh, yeah you totally read that right.
Normally this wouldn’t bother us. We would be status quo, but with the big kid heading to kindergarten our summer just became a whole lot shorter.
So we are cramming everything we can into the next three weeks.
A trip to Duluth to scatter my dad’s ashes next weekend, B2 is headed to Chicago after that, and the week of school starting is packed full of ice cream socials, graduation and teacher appreciation. Whew! It makes me tired just thinking about it.
However no matter how busy I am I can find time to spend with friends, and my past weekend in Chicago gave me and my inner teenager the mojo we need to get through this next month.
Of course a trip Chicago isn’t without it’s hilariousness, and the Sound Bytes were coming faster than John Mayer’s pick up lines. So I couldn’t them all, but here’s some to get you giggling.
3. “Can someone help me? I’m stuck in this dress.”
Ok, ladies watch yourselves in the dressing room because carnivorous dresses are on the loose.
2. “I’m big on the internet.”
She totally is you know.
1.”They stole our underwear.”
That puts new meaning into the term panty raid.
So, what hilariousness did you hear this week?
Have a great weekend.
We are going to take it easy and squeeze out every last drop summer before it’s gone.
