Lessons Learned on the Weekend

I spent this weekend in Regina on a little getaway. These are the lessons I learned.

Lessons from Gail
-In a pinch, one can use the handle off a dresser as a bottle opener (That one will really serve me well.)
-In a pinch, one can use an empty beer box as a cooler. A little ice is all you need.
-You've got to spend money to make money
-Two words: MAX BET

Lessons Learned from Jen
-You DON'T need to order forks with your meal when you phone for take out.

Lessons Learned from Jackie:
-Do your Kegels!!!!! (I'm doing them now!)

Lessons Learned from Kim:
-We're worth $26!!
-Be leary of things in pretty bottles
-Look out for the highbars and hooks in bathroom stalls
-Its not a good idea to cheat (or was it her husband that cheated?? I'm still confused)
-Faux leather? FUN leather!
-Packing is a cinch-- just keep wearing the same clothes

These are the main lessons I learned. If anyone who was on the trip has anything to add, please feel free to write them in the comment section. Needless to say, it was a good trip and I had a lot of fun. Being at home is good but freedom is gooder. That's how many brain cells I killed in just forty eight hours. Scary. Anways, as I was saying, it was good to be home, escpecially to see my husband. I've said it before and I won't hesitate to say it again: absence really does make the heart grow fonder. We did it twice yesterday. Twice! We haven't done it twice in one night since Y2K, since my husband, now approaching forty, normally requires a twenty four hour turnaround period. Anyways, it was awesome, and if we broke the shower curtains, well, I guess they can be replaced.
Anyways, onto other issues. There are two things to report on. One: I'm an aunty to a super awesome little baby named Greyson Cole. He's really, REALLY cute. I like him a lot and am so glad he's here, safe and sound. Now I can't remember what the other thing was. Hmm. Well, perhaps it will come to me later. In the meantime I will post another page out of my book for your reading pleasure.
Peace out.

Gail, I think I said 'you've got to spend money to make money' but I didn't really beleive it until you came back and started throwing money all over the room. So you proved my theory correct.
