Weary Travelers

Well, I'm back!!!!  

Didja miss me???

I got up at the butt crack of "why the fuck do they even HAVE flights this early" on Thursday and headed to DFW.  Flight left on time as did my connection in Phoenix.  Way cool.

I was picked to do the body scanner thingie.  The lady behind me said "Aww man, no fair!!  Why didn't you pick me???"  Uh, ok.

I was surprised they didn't confiscate my tweezers.

I may or may not have had a few too many beers while I was packing Wednesday night.  I may or may not have been hung the fuck over for my flights.  Oy, the misery.

The charging port on my phone decided to go tits up during the trip.  That was a special kind of joy right there.   Then when I go to do a claim on the insurance and get a new phone, I find out that the idiots somehow deleted coverage on my phone as well as Papoose #2's phone.  The Real Deal called them and got it straightened out for my phone, but they won't add it back to Papoose #2's phone.  Her phone is fine and dandy, and she is super close to an upgrade anyhow, so if anything ever goes wrong with the one she's got, we should be ok anyway.  It will be a few days before I can make a claim and get a new phone.  No biggie.

We stayed in Morrow Bay Thursday night.  It was so great.  We hit all the little shops and looked at the sea lions lounging about.  Then we split a sampler platter of seafood and listened to live entertainment while looking out over the ocean.  It was so serene.

It had been 20 years since I'd been home.  It was surreal seeing everything again.

And no Jar, I didn't fly to California to get a horse, hahaha.  I flew there to pick up my Bestie.  She was in need of a drastic change, so I flew out there and brought her back.  She rented a Uhaul trailer, we hooked it up to her truck, loaded it down with every single thing she owns and drove back to Texas.

I hope she likes Texas.  I feel very responsible for whether or not she is happy here.  Stressing me out.

I'm making tacos for dinner tonight.  Papoose #1 called me while we were on the road, asking me what kind of hamburger to use for tacos and got me craving them so were gonna strap on the taco feed bag at the tepee tonight!!

We will find out today if all the shit I bought for decorating the carts and horses for the parade all works together.  I'm a freaking nervous wreck about it.  Ugh.  Lots and lots of people depending on me to make it all happen...............

We brought back salt water taffy and a couple of treasures for the Papooses.   Some they will get tonight, some will be saved for Christmas presents.

My Bestie is a much better mother than I am.  She has a knack.  She has never had kids of her own, but she's still a better momma than I am.

Well, I've got some things to do.  Better get back to work!

Will share more about the trip later.  Suffice it to say, it was a LONG FUCKING DRIVE.  Haha.

Have a good day all.


  1. I stayed at the Inn at Morro Bay once. Had a hot
    tub on the back porch.

    Hope they skimmed all the DNA from the surface after I left.

  2. Every woman is a great mother until she has kids. It is different when they are your own.

  3. Yep, glad your back.
    Is Morro Bay close to Runaway Bay?

  4. lol @Birdie! I've met Papoose #2...she didn't hatch herself so had to have had an impact there. =)

    Parade'll be great. Can't wait. =)

  5. Couldn't have said it better than Birdie.
    Nice to get away in spite of the drive back.
    Love those little shops.

  6. i missed you!! :) glad you made it back safe & sound
