Yes, I waited too long to blog. Bad Amber. Where to start? Something funny perhaps?
This is looking out the front windows in my house. See that car up there (you can click on the picture to blow it up)? Ya, that is about four feet up into my neighbor’s yard. Here is the interesting thing, it didn’t drive up there, it flew. Yes, it flew through the air, and landed right there. You may be wondering what I was when I saw this, "how the hell did that car get up there?" Well it turns out we have a new driver up the road, a 15 year old girl who’s only been out a couple of times, and her dad was taking her around the neighborhood to practice. So she comes to this intersection and turns right, well tries to. There is a stop sign there, but apparently she didn’t really stop, and she didn’t really turn. And her dad was like, um, turn, turn, TURN. So then at the last second she cranked the wheel, hit the curb just right, and flew up above my neighbor’s retaining wall. HOLY CRAP MAN, that takes talent. I did feel a little bad for the girl since this kind of thing of course gathered many of the neighbors (well all the men, and me, what can I say, I’m snoopy). She was just sitting there on Elizabeth’s steps like, "this can’t be happening, this can’t be happening" And all the neighbor guys were talking about how the two tow trucks should be utilized to get the car out of the yard.
That was like a week ago, and I have been doing other things since then. Ribbon Jar stuff, cleaning, helping Sciarrino move, enjoying my new NetFlix subscription, and most recently, going to the Tri-Cities Washington for Thanksgiving holiday. Bj’s parent’s live there, so I said I would go the whole break so that we could spend Christmas here. Since we are working people now we can’t just take a week long Christmas break, and I didn’t want half of it to be driving. It worked out well, we left early Wednesday and came back this afternoon. I got a lot of knitting done there, of course you can’t see any of it because it’s all Christmas presents, but someone remind me after the holidays and I’ll post pictures of all my projects. I am going to take a picture of all the beautiful yarn I got yesterday in the sunlight. On the way home Bj and I stopped at a Stonehenge replica. It was built to honor WWI veterans.
More tomorrow… I promise. Angela will keep me honest.
Oh, and since I’ve been such a bad blogger, I will give you a laugh if you email me. Ceara sent me the most hilarious video. You should have seen my mom laugh at this. I not putting it on my blog because it’s slightly crud, and well, I don’t know how. So email me if you want it. Hehehe, I have to go watch it one more time myself. 🙂
