bundled up, walkabout, snow

Waiting is

Flar was bringing Flood home this morning; I haven't heard from home yet today. He's driving to Louisville today, but She_ will be there to take care of Flood.

Critter's phone is coming on the Fedex truck today.

I think mine is coming on the UPS truck today, but the tracking number that came in email didn't work when I tried it Saturday; gonna try again.

After we get our phones and play with them, the idea for the evening is Fiesta Texas.

Mom's got reservations for a hotel in Waco tomorrow night: hi-speed access, pets okay, and free breakfast. Oh, and bonus, there are beds in the room. ;)

Evening at the park

She_ called from the vet when she was picking up Flood. The after-hours clinic wanted her checked over by our vet, so Flar dropped her off in the morning, then She_ picked her up when she was ready to go home.

She_ told me that Flood was wagging her tail/body and very happy to see her. Knight told me that she is very sore, but apparent not too sore to greet with a wag. :) Her eyes are dilated, indicating brain trauma. The vet expects that to go away naturally. Otherwise, she is well but sore.

Critter's phone came, and we got it activated. He still needs to fiddle with the blue tooth to get it all working with the headset and for i-sync and stuff. Then we went out to dinner at I-Hop, and Mom and Dad dropped us at Fiesta Texas.

We got there 15 minutes before they shut down the water park, so Tigger got 15 minutes in the lazy river, while Critter bought a drink to share with me, then played with his phone, and I read my book.

Then Tigger and I rode a water ride twice, and Critter and I rode a wooden coaster. It was too bumpy for my taste, but I survived sans headache. After that, it wasn't hard to convince the boys to find a spot on the hill-side to wait for the lightshow to begin. We only had about 20 minutes to wait. The lightshow is a combination of fireworks, laser drawings and projected pictures, on top of, and on the face of, the sheer rock wall on one side of the quarry that was there before the park was built.

We bought a picture for Mom and Dad to thank them for transport, which can be seen here, by viewing picture number 7039. We didn't buy picture number 7038.

Tigger bought a green light saber-ish toy, and I bought a nifty voice-activated purple wand.

Twas a fun evening at the park, and tomorrow I get to wait around for MY phone. And then drive to Austin on Wednesday.

I usually don't get snagged by one of these. ;)

Not because you have to, but because you WANT to! Things you enjoy, even when no one around you wants to go out and play. What lowers your stress/blood pressure/anxiety level? Make a list, post it to your journal... and then tag 5 friends and ask them to post it to theirs.
  1. Curling up with a hot Laurel K Hamilton
  2. Making something pretty with the computer
  3. Making something pretty with my hands
  4. Watching a diskful of SG-1
  5. Trying out a new dessert recipe

I don't usually play these tag games, so I don't think I'm going to tag anyone...
