Miss You

I will miss my honey this week.

A lot. :-(

And, my boys.  :-(

But, they will have a wonderful experience at Boy Scout camp, I am sure. 

Our switch to Io went very smooth yesterday, except for the fact that the guy was late.  We chose the am block of 8-11am.  He showed at noon.  Feh.  It could have been worse, though.

One thing that is really cool, is that our caller ID shows on the tv now!  Very cool, it helps to know if it is worth running to find a phone or not!  LOL

Today, Hubby has been doing the 'chicken without a head' packing thing.  I sit back mostly and let him do the whole thing for camping.  After all, I won't be there.

And, it is good for him to see what I go through packing for the whole family!! 

Tonight we are going to a new restaurant!  Cheeseburgers in Paradise!  It is a chain owned by Jimmy Buffet!  I have always wanted to go to Key West and have a Margarita... I will pretend I am there tonight at dinner!  LOL

We are going out with Bob and Ilene.  Bob is driving Hubby, my boys and his son, DogBoy, to camp tomorrow!  Gotta love him! 

be well,
Dawn

Oh the boys will love their trip, scouting is a wonderful experience. I was a girl scout till I was 17, I think I learned a lot from it too. Enjoy your little bit of quiet time...love, Sandi

So it's just gonna be the girlies.. you still have fun. Have a margarita for me will you. I never heard of that restaurant you'll have to let us know what you think of it. Usually when we go to restuarants for the first time everyone orders different stuff so we can taste fest. Do you all do that? Hope the guys have a safe and fun trip camping.
Take care and Hugs, Chrissie

Hi Dawn,
I just have to remark on that LOLcat, the first in your post.  It really seems like proof positive that cats are capable of emotion!
Best,
Marty

Hey, Dawn,

Two things:  we have DISH Network and when we chose the option to display caller ID on the television, it disabled the answering machine - even when the tv was off.  You might want to check it out.

2.  Jimmy Buffett has a restaurant here at the Flamingo (called, appropriately - Margarietaville (sp?).  The food was great and atmosphere wonderful.  Enjoy!

Hope the scouts have a "rain-free" week.

Cheeseburger in Paradise...  I don't think we have one here in Cali.  My boss' husband is a parrothead, and they have been there before-its supposed to be really good!  Have a good time!!  :)  Julie

I'm trying to pack Emma tonight also.  She will only be gone from Sunday night til Thursday night.  But still.  My baby.  Not in this house.  Sniff.  She will have a blast that's for sure!  As I'm sure your boys (all three!) will too!

Aww... the kittehs are so cute.  
That restaurant sounds really good.  I'd say have a margarita for me, but you'd get sloshed with all those drinks.  LOL  So just have a big fat juicy burger for me!  
I bet the week goes by fast and that the guys will have a great time.  The girls, too.

(((Dawn))) I know you will miss hubby/boys!! hoping the week goes by fast and you and Pumpkin do some fun things too (knowing you, I bet you will)

how cool is that to have caller ID on the TV!! our cable company doesn't offer that or if they did, they didn't talk me into it, LOL

that restaurant sounds delicious; hope you had a good time (I figure you are probably home by now since I'm writing this 8 p.m. my time)

Oooh, I wanna go to Jimmy Buffet's restaurant!!  I know you'll miss them, but look at the bright side.... you won't have to cook for anybody, you can stretch out all over the whole bed, and the toilet seat will STAY down!!!  Sit back, relax, and enjoy a good book, or a good chick flick!!

Middle-aged Jimmy Buffet fans creep me out!  I'd never go there --
even though I'm a big fan of tequila.  ;)

I just did the cable guy routine in my house. Apparently the wire to the back of the box was corroded, the hookup in my basement was disintegrating, and the line to the pole outside was burnt. Can't get any worse than that. Now everything is picture perfect. Hope the time your away from hubby goes quickly. Not too quickly though as at our ages it already flies by. (Hugs)Indigo

I am a huge Jimmy Buffet fan, I played his CD all the time while getting ready for my daughter's Hawaiian Luau last weekend.  Then I found on Dish his channel Margaritaville.  I want to go to Key West for a vacation and visit his world!

Hope you got to enjoy a Margarita!
