"Get me outta here"

Did I mention that on our drive home from So Cal our car decided to stop working? No, I didn't? Well, our car has protested our return to H-E-L-L and shut itself down about 25 miles from home. Lovely, I know.

For the past two days, I've been hanging out at home because, really, who wants to take hubs to work at 4:30am? Umm, not me! I'm not what you'd call a "morning person," as in, I don't actually function before 9am. So, we've been at home, developing an ailment known as "cabin fever." And apparently an affinity for "quotation marks."

My girl and I busted out of the joint this evening to see Kit Kittredge. And now I have a "reporter/detective" on my hands. Maybe she will be able to solve a few questions I have, such as:

  • Why does the weatherman find it necessary to tell us how many days in a row it's been over 110? Really, is that something we need to be reminded of?
  • Does every parent love the Webkinz games as much as I do?
  • Do they also find it more challenging to keep up the care of more and more Webkinz, just like actual human children?
  • Who EVER thought white tile was a good idea?
  • How come in the original Alvin and the Chipmunk movies (the ones I watched when I was younger) the Chipettes look like people instead of chipmunks?

This is what happens when my brain is left without activity for too long...

I hate cabin fever and when we only had one car and my husband worked until midnight (which was way too late to pack the kid in to go pick him up), I suffered from it BAD! I definitely understand. Is there something worth doing in walking distance?
