Safely Here...

Sunday, May 30, 2010

The wi-fi at the hotel sucks (read: is SUPER SLOW) so I'm not sure how frequent I will update unless, like now, I am the only person awake and dont have to worry about wasting family time to try and log on.

We arrived safely yesterday, around 5:30 local time.  We fed Bobby and tried to feed Maya (who refused) and then headed out to my parents.  Maya was being a crankopotomas, and we were all glad to get to my Mom's and get her out of the car.  As we were socializing, she was nawing on my finger and... A TOOTH!!!  Maya's first tooth has broken through the skin!  You can barely see it, but oh can you feel it when she bites.  Sadly, I think her finger nawing (unless they are her own fingers!) are coming to an end.  Poor baby... No wonder she was cranky.  A knife was cutting through her gum!    (Although she got her revenge... About an hour outside of Nashville, she was really upset and so we pulled over to see if she was hungry, and MAN, did she STINK!  So, in the car because of the weather, I had the pleasure of changing a nastyass diaper that would make grown men cry.  I mean... Yuck!)

On our way down on Friday, guess who got pulled over before we even left PA?  (I wasnt driving so that should narrow it down a bit!).  The highway patrolmen comes over and says (and it was all I could do to not laugh at the exchange), "Is there a medical reason that you are driving 86 in a 65?"  Peter, with all sincerity, says "No.  I have no excuse."  I honestly think the guy was shocked.  He took his info and, after what seemed like forever, returned with a warning for speeding (no points, no fine) and a citation for not having a proper sticker on the license plate.  Now, here's the kicker.  The fine is only $25 but with all the taxes, etc, it's $125! However, the fine for reckless driving, which it would be because it's over 15mph over the limit, would be a lot higher, have points, and impact our insurance.  So, I happily will hunt down a post office so that I can get a money order (since I didnt bring my check book) and get this thing in the mail.

All's quiet in the hotel, since Daddy and babies are still sleeping. Sadly, no pics because the wi-fi is uberslow, but I'm sure I'll have lots to do when we get home to get photos from April, May, AND June online...  I know... I'm so far behind with uploading photos.  My apologies!!!  In a bit, we'll get the kids up and fed, so we can make the 10:30 Mass at the local church, and then head back to see my parents and figure our some sort of plan for the week!
