1/22 Poor Packers and other sadness and goodness

What a sad ending for us Packer fans. I did enjoy watching the game with my family here in Southern California, but the abrupt ending wasn't what I'd hoped for. Well, it's done.

I'm leaving here at 4 AM tomorrow. Have to decide if I'm going to rent a car or pay $90 for a shuttle. Everything is expensive here in SoCal. It's a 45 minute drive to LAX, so if I look at it at as paying two cents a minute, it's not too exorbitant. But still--$90!

Yesterday was one of the best days ever. We spent a few hours at a park and had a ball. Kayla was on her inline skates and Hunter brought his bicycle. We also took Sadie, their dog. She loved it and ended up pulling Kayla around the basketball court and around the track. It was fun to watch.

We also went out to breakfast. Every visit I take the kids (and only the kids) to Coco's. Have been doing it even before Hunter was born and he's five now. It's a special little thing that Kayla, Hunter, and I all enjoy and look forward to.

Jill and Todd have been great too. We played Uno with the kids last night and I loved it. Todd is leaving today for a quick trip to Minneapolis so we said goodbye this morning. Jill is off today so we'll have some special time together while the kids are in school. That will be a nice treat.

Gotta run, lots to do.

Hi, hon. We wish you were here too. I'm sitting at the table with Hunter. We've been playing UNO but now he has to have a snack and get ready for kindergarten. Can't believe he's getting so big.

Wow, hard to believe your trip is coming to an end so soon!! Sounds like a lot of fun packed into it though.

Oh, and thanks for the Google Reader link. I love it and it saves me a lot of time!

Yes, it makes me sad to think of getting up at 3 AM to catch the 4 AM shuttle to LAX. Plus I hate leaving them...they are such an important part of my life.

Glad you like Google Reader. David wouldn't steer us wrong. :)
