Sugary goodness…

This weekend has definitely been busy. With the beginning of tennis came the beginning of back and head pains. Having recovered from skoliosis when I was young, I have always had to be careful with what I do that causes stress on back and neck muscles. Boy have I been in a lot of pain and am now losing sleep from it. Going to start playing tennis more logically-stretching prior to and after playing and treating my neck and back to heat pads and massaging toys (if I ever go out to buy them). Other than that, we did a lot of exploring again.

Saturday was absolutely beautiful, so we got out early, saw the JoCo Museum's new Wild and Wacky Weather exhibit and listened to Jay Antle speak about tornado myths. It was good information for someone new to the flatter Great Plains region. Then we checked out the Lackman library branch and Blue Valley branch again. Did some more shopping at the Oak Park Mall and Best Buy… then we got to playing tennis. Getting better, but faaaar from ready to play a real game.

Today we went to the auto show and discovered that a lot of the cars I fell in love with actually really suck. :-p Instead, I absolutely love the Volkswagon Beetle 2006 2.5L and TDI (that's like bio diesel dude… and gets 44 mpg highway, although only at 100 mph max), the Honda S2000 2006 convertible, and the Subaru Impreza 2006(22mpg/28mpg). So exciting! The Impreza was impressive (hee hee) because it does the 22/28 split four a four-wheel all-terrain car. Dude. Found out the Mustang is horrid for viewing outside, you know, like at the road… and the Dodge Charger (while surprisingly better than the Mustang) has similar short comings. Smaller windows are really a bad idea, especially for someone (aka me) that can hardly see above the dash to begin with. Afterwards we had some yummies at Jack Stack BBQ… the BEST BBQ joint in town! And it was right across from the Union Station, so Hoyt was totally staring out the window. With him, if he's lost and staring at something, I don't have to worry that it's another girl, it's just a train. :-p I highly recommend Jack Stack. So good!

Now I am baking cookies for Hoyt's classmates; biiiig chocolately chip goodness. 😀 Last Friday the class was divided by a really bad prank, so I decided to make this Monday a little more bearable with lots of sugar. Lots. Lots and lots. Ohhhhh, sugar… hee hee. >:-D Sugar sugar sugar sugar sugar…
