The only good lawyer is...

December 14, 2010

Beth is on the Griff today.  Well, hopefully not really, cause she is tutoring a boy named Griff this afternoon after school.  To be literal would be gross and creepy.  Griff is like 15 for those of you thinking that he is a high schooler and they are almost 18 and ... stop it.

Beth is also the subject of today's lesson on dream interpretation.  She had a bad dream last night which woke us both up, surprisingly, and led to a nice back rub for her and a weird explanation from CJ this morning.  (I had a typo there that Beth got a bag rub, but I think I may have gotten in trouble for that).  As Beth left for school and drove herself and CJ to the high school, she explained her dream to CJ and his friend.  She told how she and CJ had been driving, but stopped to walk across a bridge.  The bridge was rather high and had no support rail.  There was another man walking along near them who was wearing a suit and tie, for no apparent reason.  The man accidentally fell off the bridge into the water below.  Beth had awoken due to the fear that either she or CJ had been so near to falling off the bridge also.  CJ's reaction was not as panicked about his near death experience, but more matter-of-fact about how the world lost another lawyer.  I guess only lawyers wear suits in CJ's world.  Kinda speaks to how often he sees me in a suit.  Really not necessary to wear one around the Target or the trailer park.

Speaking of Target, we are surviving the holiday season thus far.  We had 5 inches of snow over the weekend which did not help sales by any stretch, but if the weather holds until Christmas, I am confident we will get it all back in the long run.  Mixed in there along the way is CJ's birthday.  He will be 14.  Both yow and zaa.  He is taller than me now and has a deep voice and hairy legs.  However, for the record, I am still receiving my daily hugs and he has not started smoking the ganja yet. 

After Christmas, my sister and her family will be stopping by.  They have never been to our house, so it should be fun.  They live in Atlanta, so I am not sure how much snow the kids have seen.  Hopefully, there is still some on the ground and it is not 10 degrees outside so we can take them sledding or something. 

Finally, since I obviously do not post very often, I will tell you that we are going on vacation at the end of March and looking for tips on great warm places.  We have been to Universal in Orlando twice and stayed at the Hard Rock Hotel, AND LOVED IT!  That is CJ's suggestion again whereas I have suggested the Caribbean somewhere.  Being that our budget is around $3000, my idea is starting to sound out. 

So where do you guys go that is warm and teen friendly?  And old people friendly for me?  Anywhere that has a theme park or fun stuff and a cafeteria style restaurant that closes at 6:00?  Places with big print on the menu and none of that crazy after hours loud partying?  Ya know, after the hours of like 10:00.  And finally, a place where me and my banana hammock swim gear can fit right in? 

Looks like we will be staying home for vacation again this year.  Rats!


  1. You lost me at banana hammock.

    I have no vacation tips. I've on ever been on the west coast, so all of my ideas are kind of...on the west coast. Jesse and I (well, me) are planning a big road trip to Colorado and then up to South Dakota and through Montana. It feels so exotic to say I'll be in South Dakota! I guess I need to get out more. I've only been outside of the Pacific time zone once. Am I rambling? Who's letting me continue to type here?

    There's a Christmas card in the mail to you guys.

  2. Good lawyers equals good chances in winning your case.
