Were you worried?

I’m back internets!! We have so much catching up to do. I promise I have a good excuse for my absence and I apologize if your uncontrollable sobbing is annoying those around you – it can stop now because I’m back! I was absent last week for a much needed vacay.

Chuckles and I went down to the Oregon coast, which was just lovely, freezing, but lovely. We pretty much had the town to ourselves…and we ate ourselves into a food coma. We also watched the Seattle news every day keeping our fingers crossed that we were missing the worst of it. Unfortunately, on the day we were supposed to leave we woke up to three inches of snow on the beach. ON THE BEACH. When does that ever happen?!

As we were checking out another guest came in the inn and informed us that if we were intending to use 101 on our way out of town not to bother because they had closed it. Well, 101 just happens to be the only road out of town, so, YES, we were planning on taking it. Just for shits and giggles we decided to drive into town and see if we could wait it out…but we couldn’t really make it out of the parking lot. So we turned around and waited an hour and tried again.

We only had to make it eight miles to Seaside where we could get chains and it would be easy going from there…except Seaside was sold out of chains. No worries though, we made it home without incident; that is if you don’t count the crazy lady at Les Schwab in Seaside screaming at anybody who listen, “I HAVE TO OPEN A STORE IN CANNON BEACH! I HAVE LIVED HERE 30 YEARS AND THIS HAS NEVER HAPPENED BEFORE! I CAN’T AFFORD NEW TIRES! DOES IT LOOK LIKE I’M MADE OF MONEY?!” Yep, crazy.

Anyway, that is why I have been absent from the blogging world, that and last weekend I was busy being the champion of my fantasy football league. That’s right – CHAMPION.

Oh, plus all this God. Damn. Snow has me leaving the house as little as possible and with another snow storm coming tonight I doubt I’ll be in the office any time soon and when I’m stuck at home instead of blogging I read vampire books. It’s not that you guys aren’t entertaining, you are, it’s just that, well, you aren’t vampires…at least not to my knowledge.

Oh, and thanks for all the birthday wishes! My birthday was fine despite being stuck in the house for the most part. I did yell at Chuckles till he agreed to drive me to my parents for dinner and then when he got mad at me I told him that was forbidden on my birthday. I think he really enjoyed it.

I love birthday rules.

Rule #1: I make the rules. You follow them.
Rule #2: I overrule all other rules (and law's, including that Murphy guys law)
Rule #3: See Rule #1 and Rule #2.

You owe me 10 dollars for all the tissues I went through during your absence.

Ahhh! Yay for you being back. I missed you!

Glad you had a nice vacation. That's so crazy that there was snow on the beach! Yikes.

Andy said...

Yeeei for coming back!!!

And snow on the beach? Yeah, that's soemthing you don't see in my latitudes.

Elizabeth said...

At least you HAVE some snow! Tomorrow I will be decked out in shorts, which is not Christmasy, and is not fun!

Welcome back!

Matt said...

Its about friggin time you quit having so much fun and come back to blogging.

Dingo said...

Since you are back and stuck inside there is no excuse for not having a Christmas post. You're birthday's over. Get off your ass and post something.

Oh, yeah, glad you're back.

I WAS worried about you! Glad to hear you made it home safely and back on the Internet.

Kristen said...

You've been a lazy girl. Bad, bad! But I'm happy you're back!

I love how ill-prepared we are for snow up here. It make sense, as we rarely have it to this extent, but the ensuing chaos amuses me nonetheless.

Happy Birthday, Merry Christmas, it's on to New Year's girlie!
