An Act of Violation

I'm feeling so violated! My van was broken into last night at Monroe Middle School. I was with Savannah at her volleyball practice last night between 6:30 and 8pm and when I came out the back side window was smashed in and my purse was gone. I had hidden my purse, as usual, but they found it and went straight to Macy's and spent $300. I'm not liable for that, but that doesn't mean this event isn't headache free. Dan and I were on the phone canceling cards and finding out about fraud protection for 3 hours, then I did have a headache. Now we get to take our van in to get the window fixed too. Meanwhile I have to drive it around with none other than a plastic garbage bag and duct tape adornment. Very ghetto-chic!

H1N1 has left the building...I hope.

Well after Daphne and Dan both getting the full swine flu and being sick for about 2 weeks, they seem to be doing better. Seems like Olivia and I got something too, but maybe not H1N1. I hope we all keep getting better and no one else gets it!

The Shrine to Urine

Ok, I'm finally getting around to our trip to New York City. It was a blast! Wicked was AMAZING, Central Park was awesome, the view from the top of the Empire State Building was astounding, the Statue of Liberty was all I ever hoped it would be. It was a very fun trip. One thing I want to make note of is the BATHROOMS. Wow! I have never seen more disgusting nor more beautiful bathrooms in my life. There was this one in a delicious little pizza place that I was afraid to go in. I mean I was really scared. It was a unisex bathroom and this guy came out right before me and he was in there for like 10 seconds. Enough time to pee on the seat and walk out. I just about threw up at the state of the bathroom. I didn't touch anything with my bare hands...at least there was toilet paper. Ok, then there was this incredible bathroom in this little underground italian restaurant. It had 2 fountains, candles everywhere, rose petals strewn all over and in the marble sink. I wanted to stay in there all night and dedicate my "deposit" to the Urine Goddess who created this immaculate bathroom!
