Brief Interlude~~~

It is morning. It is Friday. Last night the Lovely Daughter and I experienced a series of events remarkable in so many ways that if I wasn't actually remembering, I wouldn't believe it had all really happened that way.

We went to Barnes & Noble at the Mall of America to see Crazy Aunt Purl. You know how you anticipate something....a much-desired Christmas present, the arrival of a new car, a wedding day....and you keep telling yourself that your imagining of it is probably beyond reality, but you hope it'll be nice? Well, it was like that. But ladies and gennulmen, it was beyond the most ecstatic expectations in ways I never could've anticipated. Let me say that I hope all you reading this -- nay, everyone EVERYWHERE, has at least one experience like this in your lifetime.

And I'll write about it all a little later. (Is that a groan I hear?) Here's why: I woke up this morning at 9:57, to find a note from Lovely Daughter saying she'd let me sleep in and caught the motel Shuttle to the Mall of America to begin our day there; call her cell phone when I wake up. Well, I called - and she was, of course, still on the 10:00 a.m. shuttle for the five-minute ride to the Mall! (May I point out two things? 1) she's a big girl and doesn't need her mommy, even to go to the big scary enormous Mall of America; and 2) she's a lot more excited about going there than I am. (Don't get me wrong, I'm looking forward to it, but not as much as she was.)

By the time we've had our day there and come back to the motel, no doubt shopped out, well-fed and pooped, the events of last night will have settled, sorted, and be in much better order for me to write about. WARNING: any words used to describe it will NOT, I repeat NOT be hyperbole. In fact, I may have to pick up a thesaurus to see if I can find words better than the pittance I know for "good".

C U L8R. (Don't you hate those?)

Ha! I know exactly whereof you speak. It was great meeting you and BD, not to mention Theresa and cursingmama and CAP.

Looks like the motel fixed your wi-fi. Check out my blog entry about last night, too.

HI! I think I found you via CAP and have just been lurking.. Brenda from Kenosha, WI. A friend and I road-tripped it to Peoria to see her and HOW MUCH FUN it was! She hugged us and I just can't put into words how much fun it was. I hope to blog and knit someday! Can't wait to hear your story... have a great day! Brenda
