Out of work at 12:30, rush home so hellbob
can drop me at campus for my 1:30 appointment w/Office for Students with Disabilities. HB is late, traffic sucks, so I get to appt about 10 minutes late. Get registered with OSD. I now get time and a half for tests if I need it (probably won't). Also, I get priority registration which means that I should never have to worry about any of my classes being full. Woo Hoo!( Collapse )
4:00ish and we were ready to leave town. Other than a few sporadic slow spots traffic wasn't too bad. We got to Hibbing shortly after dark & just chatted with his dad & Annette until midnight or so.
Saturday we headed over to Grandmas and spent a few hours visiting with her. She's got a lot of pain in one of her legs, but other than that she looks really good. Dinner Saturday night was at Valentini's. If you are ever in Chisholm you must go eat there! I had the prime rib and it was soooooooooo good!
Sunday we had breakfast with Dad & Annette, and then headed over to grandma's for another hour before we hit the road.
We stopped at a few sales but didn't get anything cooler than a Chris Rock comedy CD to listen to on the drive.
In Brainerd we wandered around until we found Paul Bunyan Land. It seemed so much larger when I was a kid! The big statue of Paul now has a lazy eye. It's really kind of creepy. The gift shop was pretty much cleaned out. We did get a Paul Bunyan magnet for Mark though. Took a lot of pictures, but hellbob
is playing online games right now so I am forbidden from stealing his bandwidth to upload pictures.
Got home late last night, and have spent all of today being lazy. Although I did just balance the checkbook and pay bills. I like having it balanced, and I like the feeling of mailing off the bills, but I hate the actual spending money of it! Played a little phone tag with bloodlossgirl
but we never actually reached each other for us to get together in Brainerd.
We were pleasantly surprised to find the cats alive and not complaining when we got home. We didn't give them dinner before leaving town and at about midnight on Friday I turned to hellbob
and said "you did ask chebutykin
to feed the cats, right?" Unfortunately his response was "I thought you did" So Saturday morning I called Cheb and said "please, please, please feed our kitties!" The didn't seem too upset when we got home so she must have taken good care of them!
