Ahh...Spring!!!

Sorry about my kinda cryptic post yesterday...chalk it up to me just being a little frustrated. Usually I use this as an outlet if I am feeling weird about something, but can't really do that at the moment, and it was wearing on me. But I am feeling better today...chicken fingers will do that for you!

Speaking of which, based on a g-chat conversation of this week, the subject of college came up during dinner. As of now, Munchkin wholly plans on going to college within three miles of our condo (at the same place I am going to graduate school if you are keeping score). Obviously, you say a lot of things when you are 14, and I totally expect that her interests and intentions will change several times in the next five years before this matters, so we shouldn't pretend that this is really a serious conversation.

I joke with her that "You would have to stay local...there is no way on Earth that Big Sis would let you go away! She would kill you if you tried to move!" And Munchkin responded with "Oh, I could never go away...how would we have chicken fingers every Thursday?" Which, um...not gonna lie...could be my single biggest concern if she really did move away;-). Glad we are on the same page with that one...lol.

Anyway, now that "stupid story hour" is over...hee hee...

It is supposed to get up to almost 70 degrees today, which is just about the best news I have had all year. Never mind that it will probably be 40 and raining by next weekend...for now we can pretend that we are done with the bad weather. It is going to be even warmer in Chicago, which just makes me all giddy inside.

Munchkin and I are already packed so that we can leave right when we get home. That should give us plenty of time to get to the airport and grab something to eat (nothing is better travel food than McDonald's, says me). I am actually planning on using the flight for the budgeting and saving lessons that I talked about last week...it will be a good, uninterrupted hour and a half at least to talk with her.

Also, I am a dork who has prepared some spreadsheets:-). Because that's how I roll...

I am missing the Beer Summit by being gone this weekend (any of my Boston readers going?), but if I remember back to two years ago, maybe it is better this way.

Hope everyone has a great weekend. Happy Easter to my Greek readers:-) (KT?)

I'm glad Chicken Fingers fixed you up! We should put money on this school thing. What about a Chicago school? Northwestern?

Have a great time and I look forward to hearing about the BRIDAL SHOWER!!! Haha.

Wow, ALMOST 70 ? Gezz, makes me appreciate living in southern California as that's an everyday temp here .... except it doesn't rain much here hence the drought we're in ..... Every Yin has a Yang !

Be well & enjoy the weekend ...
