Today I caved in and decided to drive to Branson, MO to see B play. So dad and I started on our drive a bit before dinner. But there’s something that you need to know…

I had baaaaad gas all afternoon. It started shortly after I left the gym- good thing too since gym-boy decided to start a conversation with me while we were lifting weights today (I skipped my run to lift while he was up there… I know, that’s bad). It was the kind where you feel like you have to lean to one side so it can escape properly (I said TMI Tuesday for a reason). It was explosion after explosion and it didn’t let up when I got in the car with dad.

I guess you could say it’s a good thing that I had gas. I mean you can’t have a road trip without a gaseous passenger. Since dad didn’t especially care for the smell he made me open the window each time I had to let one. Which is fine, he does that frequently on our road trips… but I never knew the reason why before this trip.

You see, the car smelled like “road trip”. The only thing I can pin down that aroma to is my gas. I guess I could add that the minivan constantly smells of road trip. What does that mean mom??

Today I didn’t go to the gym because I was too lazy 😦 But I went tonight with the sister and the dad. I talked to gym boy a lot tonight- to make up for the fact that I havent seen his gorgeous face in like 2 weeks. Our conversation didnt stray far from the topic of there being volleyball at the gym tonight.

On our way out the door my dad tells me, “Well, He’d really dilute the race.” My mom and grandma have this thing about “diluting the race” since we’re really tall if we married short people it would balance out the tallness in the kids. B thinks he’s too short for me too. Maybe he’s like 5’10? I’m 6’3. Big difference? Not too bad.

In the car dad gave us the talk about how we need to… ahh this is boring.

I bought gas today. Almost $51 !!!

-Maybe I’ll be more in the mood for writing tomorrow. George Lopez has my attention right now.



Whole Foods Adventure

Tonight Dad took me to Whole Foods for dinner while B was at bball practice. It was a hard choice but I chose the KC sandwich:

It had roast beef, roasted red peppers, carmelized red onions, mixed salad greens, and horseraddish mayo all on ciabbata bread.

We ate outside. It was such lovely weather!

When we finished at Whole Foods we went over to Borders since it was really close. There was a cool book that I wanted to show dad, Talking Dirty Spanish. (Have I mentioned how much I love Spanish?) There are phrases in it like: hacerse el oso: to make an ass of oneself, literally: to make the bear. I want this book for my birthday- it’s coming up you know (hint, hint, mom)

Oh and that’s not my arm. I’m not that hairy. That arm belongs “a mi padre”.

Oh and here’s a “BINGO!” with a license plate reading “Annie”, our dog’s name. B wanted me to post it… not like she ever reads my blog.



Happy Fathers Day!

Today was pretty low key, except it wasn’t. After we got home from church and ate lunch Dad opened his gifts. I got him a cool wire basket for flipping fish on the grill:

Later Dad took me to Costco and to Best Buy where I got a new iPod and Nike+iPod to track my training progress on my new program to get ready to run a 5K- eventually I want to do a triathlon.

And since I haven’t posted a picture of my new laptop:

Oh and we got Dad a new toupee (it’s blue, so it doesn’t really match his hair, oh well)
