Today

Today was a great day. Bill and I spent almost all day in our garage cleaning it out. It was one of those things that has been on our list of things to do forever and it was ridiculously satisfying to finally cross it off the list, along with a few other "to do's" that came with it. I can finally park in my garage again, and that, to put it simply, rocks.

Tonight we had Partner Bunco. I haven't talked a lot about Bunco on my blog. It's something I've always just sort of taken for granted until I sit back and realize how amazing it is. I've been in the same Bunco group for at least 10 years. I remember hosting my first time at my parents' house and having my parents help me cut up the ingredients for taco salad. (Needless to say, I didn't cook.) I remember the Bunco where I announced I was engaged. I remember hosting in our tiny apartment after we got married. And being pregnant and miserable and missing a few Bunco's after each baby. The group has changed a bit throughout the years, but many of us are from the original 9. It's something I love being a part of, something I look forward to every month. Anyway, once a year our husbands or friends join us for Partner Bunco, and we all eat way too much junk and try to make each other laugh. For the first time ever Bill and I won High Score, which was a $40 gift card to P.F. Changs! I'm so glad I picked such a great place for the top prize when I bought the prizes.

My mind is reeling with excitement for my upcoming trip. I don't think about much else right now. At some point, I will have to come out of the Twilight Zone, but for now I'm enjoying the rush. I promise a million pictures, whether you want them or not. There probably won't be a picture of me and Kim cuddling in our queen-size bed, although Bill thinks I should come home with a T-shirt that says "I spooned in Forks." Do you think they make one?

That t-shirt idea is hilarious! If they don't make one, you should definitely make one! And then you could market it and have a little side income to finance your Stephanie Meyer obsession! ;-)

I love the "spooned in forks!" shirt idea. You should design a few and sell them!

Drive safe and have a total blast! I too am glad you won last night! Your post got me thinking...Anderson was a baby when I first started playing Bunco! Thats a lot of dice rolling.

That's crazy... you are a bunco veteran. I love that shirt idea. Hope you find one.

Oh to park in a garage....my dear, sweet, darling of a husband drove into the side of ours and we just don't have a couple thousand dollars to fix the blasted thing!

I am very intrigued by this Bunco game....????

I hope you have a fun trip, you don't sound that excited about it!!!! And as with everyone, I LOVE the t-shirt!
