Eye Twitching & Alien Babies

eye

I don’t know what is wrong with me, but my eye (lid) has been twitching for the last two days. I have no idea why, but it is driving me crazy.

Has this ever happened to you?

It is weird, it is like my eyelid just moves, like there is an alien baby inside of it…or something…ok, maybe I have an active imagination, but I can’t help it.

So, while at work, I was talking to my co-worker (CW). Mind you it is totally dead at work this week…NO ONE IS HERE and I mean NO ONE. School doesn’t start back up for another week.

Me: Does your eye ever twitch? Cause mine is totally twitching right now! Do you think it is stress?

CW: No, I just think you are retarded.

Gee, with friends like that who needs enemies….right? Or maybe there really is an alien baby in my eyelid…..

Cruisin’ Conversations

driving

So, we made it back. It was probably the worst trip back EVER because we got (a little) too many speeding tickets (we think). Well, Hubby did. One in the middle of TX for going 85 mph (PEOPLE THE SPEED LIMIT THERE IS 80) however, it was still dark out (being that it was 6am) and so he got a ticket because he should have been going 65 (night speed). OOPS! Then there was a camera set up in Tucson….I hate those stupid speed cameras. So, we can’t be sure, but it totally flashed. Oh well. It happens, but I think this trip got very expensive!

Anyways, besides that part and the long, boring drive we did have some good conversations….

On Driving

Me: I hate driving! (Mind you I think on the way back I drove maybe an hour and a half out of 14 hours….. )

Hubby: Why

Me: Cause I see dead things. And it is probably not a good idea to close my eyes like I do everytime I see them.

On How much longer

Me: Are we there yet? Are we there yet? Are we there yet?

Hubby: I can pull this car over and you can walk!

On Speeding Tickets

Me: There goes our Christmas money. I think it may have been cheaper to fly!

Hubby: (DEAD SILENCE)

On the Best BBQ in Texas (Advice to Readers)

Me: If you ever see this place GO THERE!

On Small Towns in the Middle of West Texas

Hubby: Let’s stop there…at the one that says Travel Center

Me (slowing down..yea it was the one time I was driving) Oh yea, THIS looks like a nice travel center. (FYI…it was a run down shack with ONE pump) Kinda like this, but not exactly…

gas-station

Hubby: After we fill up, want a tour of the town?

Me: I think I will pass.

On food in the car:

Hubby doesn’t like me to eat in the car, but I do it anyways.

Me: UH OH

Hubby(angry-like): Did you drop your pretzels?!

Me: uh oh

Hubby: You will pick that up!

Me: Ooops I think it fell somewhere out of reach…..

Coming soon…pictures of my pretzel art

Well, there you have it. Don’t you just feel like you were in the car with us?

We didn’t kill each other and we are still talking to each other, so all in all good times!

Brother & Sister Love

Hubby (to me): Did you want to hear about the end of the Spurs game?

Me: I heard about it.

Hubby’s Sis: What? Tell me! I want to know!

Hubby (to his Sis): You don’t care…

Hubby’s Sis: Well, I can pretend I do!

Me (laughing): That is awesome! I need a shirt that says that.. “I pretend to care!”

On the Road Again…

road

Tomorrow at 5am we hit the road again back to AZ…..back to the grind. We had such a great time in Texas, it will be sad to leave. Our Christmas was great and we have so much loot to hall back….good thing we took the truck! Another great Christmas over, it always makes me sad because it is my most favorite time of the year. Now we will be headed on the open road early, early in the morning and then back to work this week. YUCK.

I will try not to scarf any Red Bull this time, so that I won’t have to pee every minute….hopefully. Yuck. I.HATE.THE.DRIVE.BACK.

Don’t worry road updates will follow. ARE WE THERE YET?

Fun Family Conversations

family-blocks

Just some snippets of family conversation I thought you would enjoy from the holidays.

Mom-in-law to Hubby: Go pull your thing out and let’s play with it!

Hubby, Hubby’s sister and I start laughing…..yea, all of our minds were in the gutter that time!

FYI: she was referring to his baking….AND this is pre-drinking….

Later On that night…

Hubby: OOO OOO look Adult Emporium (XXX) is open…

Dad-in-law (on our way to the Boudros): We might stop there on our way back….we have so many batteries!

Hubby: Ummmm there is such a thing as TMI…and we have just reached that point.

And then at Christmas/Birtday time….

Me (opening my birthday gifts): OO OOO these are the bedsheets I wanted!

Everyone: What material are they?

Me: Satin-like, you know slip and slide material….

Gotta love family entertainment…it is even free!
