Just two more days to keep it together at work. Yay! I can't believe I made it this far (and I know there is still a long road ahead of me to finish the year). Prom is coming up soon and graduation will be here in two months. Ugh. I feel so unprepared, although I'm more than ready to relax. I even have my liquid refreshments on deck, and in case Kraken falls short, I brought in reinforcements-wine from a recent Costco trip.
On the cab ride back to her dorm (bags not even at ambient temperature), D1 laid it on me about the Pure Aloha Festival in Las Vegas coming up in mid April. No, wait. I got my story wrong. She didn't tell me about the festival; she asked me to book her air travel (book=pay for). Her friend's family will be selling 808 logo items at the festival so she claims she is going there to work. If she had a car, she could drive to Vegas, but I don't dare suggest it, especially since I know what her driving is like. I don't think she has ever been to Vegas and likely has no idea how crazy it is to drive there.
In a few days, D2 will be off on another adventure. This time the adventure will take her across the continent. Glad she will be with Uncle Edz (happy 5-0 to you!). Once again, I'm amazed at all the travel opportunity kids have now. Times certainly have changed.
With D2 gone this past week, it was only The Help and me. I figured this was a good time to use up the imitation crab sticks I bought in the jumbo pack from Costco. D2 said they did not taste like kanikama and wanted nothing to do with them.
