I am still alive.
However I have not in the last three weeks or so read blogs, I have hardly checked my email, and have been on facebook even less.
Not only did I survive, but so did everyone else.
I figure it’s good preparation for our future in off the grid living in Michigan…or Uganda…or both.
Anyway we took a lovely trip to spend Christmas with my mama. I wish she was closer. You know mom, Michigan is beautiful and Uganda…well it’s beautiful too…you just have to forget all those illnesses I had ;0)
Then since we were SO CLOSE (12 hours close) we decided to take an impromptu trip to Michigan. I don’t do anything impromptu…ever. How that man of mine convinced me this was a good idea I will never know. Not only did he get me in the car and drag me half way across the country, he also got me on a sled. I live on the wild side I tell ya.
I like the snow and the slower pace and the sound of Amish buggies traveling down the road.
I don’t like driving a BAZILLION hours to get home.
We did get some relief in Arkansas.
Arkansas tends to be the butt of many jokes around our house.
We never really had good reason….Until a couple days ago.
The scene: The Waffle House in Memphis Arkansas.
I am trying to order food for me and my beloved.
Waitress: “How would ya like those eggs sweetie?”
Me: “I would like them to be over easy please.”
Waitress: (blank stare) “How would ya like those eggs?”
Me: (confused, but figure I will try again) “Over easy.”
Waitress: “What’s that?”
Me: “Um, sunny side up.”
Waitress: (Blank Stare)
Me: (I am starting to get a little worried I might have to have my eggs scrambled ew! So I frantically look at the menu and point to the picture of the sunny side up eggs) “I want them like this please.”
Waitress: (The light of dawn shining in her eyes) “Oh, ya want your eggs up, ya want up eggs. I can getcha some up eggs no problem.”
I never dreamed I was going to need a Texas to Arkansas language guide to order eggs.
Now I know, so next time at a Waffle House in Arkansas I can let my waitress know I like my eggs up.
