at any rate.. i realize i am way behind on blogging so i am going to TRY to catch up now.. with out pictures.. and then i will do a picture essay once i have the words caught up ..
sooo where to start.. on the way to Sharons..
so i started off from here at about 9 pm.. not a biggie .. cause i am so used to being up late.. my time line would have put me at sharon's at about 6 or 7 am if there had been no problems.. uhh yeah.. no problems..
things were going great til i hit Chicago.. got on the wrong road.. (294...NEVER .. i repeat NEVER take this road its scary as hell LOL) .. well while on the wrong road .. i got pinned between semis and was unable to get into the toll line.. GAH.. well i DO have a tiny car.. i should have just went under right ? LOL .. so i missed that but couldnt manage to avoid a pothole as big as my car.. i hit the hole and got a bit down the road and realized i was in trouble.. long story short.. i bent two rims.. and had to get a whole new set of tires in a little town outside of racine called sturtevant... i was fortunate enough to be able to write the tire guy a check for the $708.65 it cost to get the tires.. i still had two bent rims but .. they were nice enough to straighten them a little and enough to bet a good set with the tires.. and was told i could drive a bit with out having to get new rims.. which was good news.. cause i really didnt wanna take any more time away from sharon trying to find rims and get them put on .. (i got my rims the day after i got home and they are on my car now)
at anyrate.. about 15 hours later .. and looking like a strung out crack whore.. i pulled into sharons drive.. i was jacked up on caffeine so hard i was shaking LOL.. seriously.. she thought i was having a heart attack LOL... it was good to see sharon .. she was just like i thought she would be.....i cant say the same for myself .. see above crack whore comment...
I had been up for a complete 30 or so hours.. but some how i didnt wanna sleep so .. i didnt.. i took a shower and we headed out to shop.. and Sharon told me i looked and smelled MUCH better after my shower.. so Sharon and Felicia and myself went back out on the road to the Mayfair mall.. and did a little shopping.. i think it was a fun time .. it was definately a fun time..
back at sharons.. i got to meet the rest of the family .. i think the girls thought i was fairly weird.. and i dont think Jeff knew what to think of me til about sunday at racetime LOL..
I really had a good time at sharons.. we shopped friday.. at the mall.. saturday we had a full day .. farmers market which gave me my first taste of cheese curds and a cooler bag full of cheese to bring home .. they were really good.. we had a "date" at starbucks.. more shopping in the afternoon..oh and i cant forget Sheeping Beauty.. OMG what a store!!!...i think i went a little crazy in there .. and i think the fire was that night too .. in the mean time.. remember the bent rims.. i was able to find a whole set on ebay .. for less than the price of one at the dealer YAY for me !! got those ordered..
sunday was Robyns birthday party.. we went out did a little more ..you guessed it.. shopping.. LOL.. i got gifts for Robyn and Felicia.. cause well it didnt seem right to get Robyn stuff when Felicia's bday was earlier in the year and i wasnt there and didnt send anything.. i think they liked every thing !!!
the party was fun.. Jeff and I stayed inside and watched the race.. that was definately fun.. its always better when you have some one to watch with .. and i think after that .. i was considered cool in Jeff's book..sharon i know you are reading .. tell him i cant wait til the Brickyard!!...
so monday rolls around and i got all packed up and on the road toward the UP....it was sad leaving.. it was SUCH fun.. really .. i dont think sharon thought all my stuff was gonna fit in my car but i had room to spare !! amazing..
i know i am leaving alot out .. cause if i went into great detail i think you would all glaze over.. but let me just say .. Sharon is a great hostess.. she was always trying to feed me and made sure i didnt go hungry EVER.. i think i ate better those few days at her house than i had in months LOL.. and i tried to help with dishes and she shooed me LOL.. i really cant wait to go back.. so i guess i have to wait though cause i dont think my car is that great in snow and its coming soon .. so the spring!! so start getting ready sharon!! i AM coming back ..
