Going to the In-Laws

Today we will be visiting my wife's family for Christmas. Basically her parents and her married with 2 children sister. My wife gives me a little trouble for not spending much time out there because it is 60 miles from St. Louis and they basically have 2 gas stations for entertainment. They do have cable TV. In general we gravitate towards staying with my mom because she has bedding for us, her side of the family basically offers us a futon, couch, or floor. Our friends live in St. Louis and there are no friends out there. I guess I'll do one night and come back in Friday with a friend and play roller hockey. I may get lucky and see BillyV also!

Bonus trip: We are going to drive by my dad's place. He has sacrificed a LOT this past year and 1/2. Summer of 2004 he gave up drinking. HUGE deal for him. Since then he actually travels into my moms(60 miles one way) to see the grandkids. We don't go to his place either because my brother lives close to my mom and that is just easier. So he's probably excited that we are stopping by. I felt conviction when my daughter asks, "Where does papa live?" Right in front of him also.

May or may not post on Friday. Plans are for 5 on 5 roller hockey. It's been 10 years since playing. The MAN shoots, he scores!

Good luck with the in-laws. Hopefully they aren't as bad as mine.

Have a safe New Years!

Hey, I'm living with my in-laws while I am sitting in a McDonald's using the internet. Two days aren't going to kill you. School starts for me Jan. 9th. I am excited, hope it works into a full-time gig (i'd prefer MoBapU over Branson but the school seems cool down there.)

Reply to deanna: Just different. My wife and her sister make fun of her mom often. They just don't have good sleeping arrangements.

Reply to wiccachicky: Thanks. When I changed it I lost my links and it took about 20 minutes to redo them.

Reply to billyV: Do you buy anything at McD's? I know McD's isn't on the Victor Plan. Send me a copy of the Victor Plan because I am ready to lose weight.

The MAN probably returns home with broken bones or missing teeth....
