The 30-Love Club #2

Safe travels, Mrs B. We'll miss you. Hope you take lots of pics...and share, share, share when you return.

Sorry about the 'net thing at home, Tiff. It stinks when you've got to change providers.

I love my girls.

I know, but I think it's for the better.

Are you upgrading your service (to/from DSL?)...or just getting a better package from someone else?

I love my girls.

And there is also an entire temple that was moved from the banks of the Nile when the dam threatened to destroy it.

I have to say the god Anubis freaks me out a bit. The whole "dog-head-on-a-man's-body" thing.

I really wanted to take some of the Egyptian knickknacks home with me... think they would have noticed? Some little statues and figurines would look nice on my mantel.

So I called the boy he walks to and from school with and sure enough I was told that Nate hadn't walked home with him because there was a Math Meet. I go back to the school at the usual designated time and no bus, no kids, no other parents. I think OMG! I go home check the actual Math meet schedule and it says FEB 1st not JAN 31st. Call hubs and then 911 to report him missing. I felt stupid but nothing was adding up. Of course I live in a small town and everyone knows everybody. Meet up with the policeman and call hubs asking him to go back to the school. We finally find Nate on a bus coming from the Math meet. Hubs calls back and says the other parent at the school is also getting upset. He tells her it is ok the bus is on its way home. Finally 1 hour 45 minutes after the bus was due back- the phone rings and Nate says "Hi mom, it is so nice to be loved and missed". What a kid. I still feel a bit stupid but not overly.

The joke- I laughed with the policeman stating that already I was calling them and Nate wasn't even a teenager yet

Aw, nice kid. Sorry you had a scare, but glad it worked out!

There were some paintings of Mt. Katahdin and some Maine lighthouses at the museum today.

Reminds me to watch Schuettler's "no string" again. I believed that's one of the place he visited.

Glad Nate is safe!

I totally understand all the emotions you must have felt! Sometimes my mom likes to repeat things 20958235 times to me on the phone, telling me I should remember to do this, not do that, I eat and sleep properly..that I get impatient and tell her to stop! "Yeah I know mom!" Then she tells me to shut up and that I would understand once I have my own child , that I'd be worried and constantly thinking of him/her when they're away. I love my mom!

Speaking of 911...I remember this incident several years back...I think my brother accidentally hit "911" on the phone once (he was like 5 at the time ) and all these cops came to our house. My parents opened the door and told the cops nothing was wrong, but the cops kept eyeing my dad suspiciously lol. I think they must have thought there was domestic violence going on and that my mom called 911 and my dad's presence was pressuring my mom not to say anything to them at the door. The cops kept trying to sneak peaks through the windows right after that to make sure everything really was okay. My brother got the chiding of his life about the seriousness of 911 after that.

Matt.

Yes, the old Egyptian antiques are awesome. Luxor is a real museum. I don't know about the Metropolitan but in Cairo Museum, I doubt it very much anyone will notice anything is missing . A lot of things are stacked in a pile with very little security . One cannot imagine the amount of stolen, gifted and "lost" little "knickknacks".

I thought Anubis would freak you out because it is the god of the dead/mummification. I used to wonder why it was so black unlike the jackal it represents until I learned it is the color of death.

I'm good, I got up about a couple hours ago, did some cleaning, took a shower, and just ate my breakfast lol (now being 3pm for me). But I'm feeling really rested and almost ready to go out and shoot some ball.

But this day kinda stinks...like, literally. I got fed up with my clogged up sink and bought this Drain Opener thing to do some massive de-clog. I followed all the instructions, poured half of the bottle down the drain, and rinsed with tap water...and it's not doing anything but making some old junk regurgitate back up into the standing water and making the sink area reek! I'll probably pour the rest of the stuff later to try to get the sink normal again.....since I'd like to start washing dishes at some point?

How are you hun?

Sometimes you have to give that drain stuff some time... it looks like it's just making a mess, but then suddenly everything gives way, and voila! clear drain!
