There has been so much X-citement around here at Bungalow'56 I haven't been able to get to my blogging.
Last week I told you how we had a few problems with some gentlemen who will otherwise be known as the Little "L" men.
After last year I thought for sure I had managed to Leprechaun proof the house.
I'm embarrassed to say, they outsmarted me.
As usual the girls were allowed their once yearly treat of Lucky Charms.
Last year The "L" men made such a mess, I knew not to open the boxes before the girls woke up.
But that didn't stop them.
Can you see what they did?
Here's a closer look.
How they managed to wield scissors or a knife to get the job done, I will never know.
And to add insult to injury....
Look what they did to Youngest's little note!
I guess in the end though, I didn't mind that they had a little fun.
As long as they leave us a little chocolate gold goodness for our troubles : )
(none of which were consumed in any way by this sugar free blogger.)
Some friends were also asking how our 12 hr bus ride to and from Provincials was.
The ride down was great. We stopped half way and did the drive in two days.
I had a great visit with some of the other soccer moms with many laughs.
Unfortunately the ride back wasn't as pleasant.
The last five hours of the drive the roads were treacherous.
And that is in no way an eXXageration.
Vehicles were sliding into the ditch in front of us left right and centre.
When we could no longer see where the road was, due to the drifting snow,
we decided to stop at the next town and stay overnight.
Unfortunately all the hotel/motel rooms were full.
|The beautiful clear roads....on the way down.|
Gary, our driver, talked us into continuing,
and with a bunch of nervous women looking over his shoulder,
he managed to drive us home safely and we arrived at our destination at 1am.
Definitely too much X-citement for this mama.
All I know for sure is.... if we ever have to attend a tournament in March again, we will be flying.
I am currently writing up a proposal to the Catholic Church to consider Gary for sainthood.
After putting up with us.... he's a shoe in for Canonization.
