    HAHAHA My parents did that with me when I was around that age,they were going out of town someplace I thought.Yet mysteriously appeared back home a few hours later,I was busted with about 20 friends already pretty liquored up & the whole house smelling like weed. :lol:

    Dad & I actually laughed about it a while back,though he sure wasnt laughing 30 yrs ago at the time. ;-)

    Dad, mom and sister used to go to visit my aged aunt on Sunday afternoon. As soon as they left I would hot wire Dad's '56 Chevy work car and make a round of the teen hangouts. One Sunday my head was under the dash hot wiring when my ankles were grabbed and I was yanked out of the car on my butt.

    Dad forgot his reading glasses and came back to get'em. :red:

    Being the romantic guy I am, I got a box of wine and some frozen pizzas. Twilight Zone marathon will be interrupted by Game of Thrones (I spoil her). Better take it easy cuz after a week of vacation boredom is setting in and she's apt to get a little frisky and look for someone to start smooching. I don't want to pass out early and wake up with magic marker all over my face, like last year.

    I don't think I could pick a favorite. Maybe the mannequin one. Watching them with my daughter is awesome. She has completly given up on TV, now its Dick Van Dyke and the Cosby show via Nexflix. Popular culture has definitely gone down hill. Thank God for the Internet!

    Good friends here fifth year in a row. Eating junk food cooked up by the kids. A bit of spirits, lovely fire in the 30, board games, maybe a movie, and shared optimism for an upbeat 2012!

    Roast beef and potatoes and a touch of the grape. Watching the outside cat sleep by the 30 and catching up on posts. Seeing what people with real lives are doing tonight. :lol:

    Plans got changed. DD accepted a late invitation for Sat afternoon that got stretched out into late-ish, and had made arrangements for her brother to drop her off, get some shopping done, and pick her up. He came home, went to bed, and called it a night. I had been out moving wood, emptying the ash can, etc., and was cold. Taking a hot bath when the phone rang, DD needing a ride home. Grrrrr . . . DS had stuck the jeep in a snowbank, I had wet hair under a wool cap, insurance on the jeep was set to run out at midnight, kids had left the gas tank on empty, etc., so snarly mood as I started down the road. The sight of fireworks all over the sky reminded me that this was the second consecutive NYE that I had spent driving around in the dark picking up DD, fifty mile round trip, twisty roads with no road signs, etc. (Did I mention that it's -25 or so?)

    Subsequent conversation in the car:
    "I was pretty upset earlier as I was driving over to pick you up."
    "I'm sorry, it just worked out that way, I thought E was going to pick me up, etc., etc."
    "But now I'm not upset anymore."
    "Oh?"
    "I had a thought that calmed me beautifully. Fifteen sled-loads of birch hauled down from the garage and stacked."
    "Okay."

    The year is looking up already.

    Our 15 month old granddaughter spent the night with us. That is as real as life gets in my book. :)

    Ah, the dreaded transverse sleeper. Nothing like a kick in the kidneys to wake you up in the morning, eh? If the giggles could be bottled to be decanted at will, what a wonderful world this would be . . .

    Certainly not planned, but ended up at the ER with our six year old. Presented with almost classic symptoms of appendicitis, without the really severe abdominal pain and guarding. She was very uncomfortable, and just way off. The staff was pretty persistent in trying to rule it out, but couldn't explain the high white count. After xrays and ultrasounds, they finally confirmed with a ct. And of course my child is different than most, and the routine 45 minute appendectomy turned into an hour and a half.
    She finally just ate for the first time since yesterday morning, and really perked up. Watching some TV and chillin'. Probably go home sometime tomorrow. We are fortunate to live about about 15 minutes away from one of the best pediatric centers in the world. Staff and facility at C.S. Mott Children's Hospital at the University of Michigan are top notch. While definitely not fun, it's been a really positive experience.
