Gettin' Outa Dodge



I'm leaving in a few hours for New York. Nah, I'm not winging my way to NYC to see "Grease", I'm going to Buffalo for a wedding. I'm getting out of this crazy house for a long weekend.

I'll spend Saturday and Sunday doing the wedding thing with my sorority sisters, and Sunday and Monday doing Niagara Falls with my biological sisters (and my Mom). Yep, there's a bit of over-lapping but everybody knows everybody so it should be fun.

One of my best friends, Ileana, will be there. She's an amazing woman. She grew up in Puerto Rico and went to college in New York, where she struggled with the language but graduated with a degree in business. I took her home from college with me a few times and my family fell so in love with her that we dubbed her our Puerto Rican sister.

So, this Sunday night, Mom, my sisters Cathy & Nancy and our Puerto Rican sister, Ileana, are climbing into the rental car to go watch the fireworks at Niagara Falls. Ileana will inevitably yell, "Road trip!", as we hurry out of the hotel, annoying everyone within earshot. I will pretend not to know her as I giggle and rush ahead. It's what we do.

Things will be quiet here while I'm gone, so I trust you will behave and clean up any messes before I get home. I asked the neighbors to keep an eye on you! (Kenzie- don't bring any boys over!)

I'll bring y'all back a present. See ya!

Hey! Thanks, you guys. I just got back and will be blogging soon. The house is filthy and there's no food in the frig! Blogging will have to wait.

Nancy: how weird!
