Quiet Time

It's nice being on vacation with the family but after a week of togetherness it is nice to be alone. I'm staying in Texas til the 6th and Sweety and the boys are going home on the 2nd. They're at his sister's house til they leave and I'll be bouncing around on my friends couches.

It took about 5.5 hours to get here from my sister's house in Oklahoma today. By the end of the trip, I was ready to pull some tongues out. It seems that the boys can't stand to have silence so one of them must ALWAYS be talking. And if there's not any conversation going on, then they will talk to themselves.

Both riding in a car and eating makes me sleepy so I spent most of our driving time conked out. We stopped at Starbucks for breakfast (it was my first time ever dining or getting something from there) and I had a big espresso and promptly passed out once we got moving in the car. Sweety said I'm the only person he knows that can get caffeined up or eat breakfast and then go to sleep. Unfortunately, we can't choose our talents...

Something I've noticed while on vacation? I'm staying up much later than normal. I think that I don't want to go to sleep because I don't want my days (and vacation) to end.

Tiny dog is being missed something fierce. I may have to bring her with us next year.

Oh goody. I just realized that my computer clock is one hour ahead of Texas time so I just gained an hour!

I'll be getting home on the day that is our fifth anniversary. I don't have a clue as to what to get Sweety for a present. He said that a good gift would be me coming home but I feel like I should scrounge up something for him. I read that for the fifth anniversary you should get a gift made of wood or silverware. Maybe I'll use those guidelines to come up with something. Anybody out there got any ideas?

Just for the hell of it I google searched fifth anniversary. I did find a cool website although I dont know if it will help but maybe you can get some ideas from it anyway. http://www.fifthweddinganniversary.com/

It says that gifts for the fifth wedding anniversary should be made of wood because wood is everlasting. Maybe a carving made of wood?

Get him a stuffed armadillo, it's the Texas state bird - although Jess had a good suggestion, giving him wood might be the best gift of all...

How about getting Sweety a wood figurine that reminds you of him? OR just break with tradition and go for the consumer electronics. A man can never have too many toys. And blow jobs are always appreciated no matter what the occasion; especially if you do something to jazz it up. (I'll let you decide what that means.)

Chickie,

Give him a Nokia 770 and since he is not the type to surf, he will quickly tire of it and then it will be yours :_)

Thanks for the gift ideas! I'm pretty sure the present will involve "wood" of some type!

Sweetie bbq's, doesn't he? What about wood-handled bbq tools, a snazzy set? That would cover the wood AND the silverware (kinda).

What? What? It sounded ok to me!

Chickie said...

Scorpy - Dammit! I wish I'd thought of that! I gave him something like that for his birthday in May - I should've held back.
