idaho

this weekend is mother's weekend at byu-i where my sister "goes" (saying this reminds me of that awful movie "legally blonde" when the blonde girl sees her ex-boyfriend at harvard law school and says, "i totally forgot you go here!" like it's a grocery store instead of harvard law).

anyway, i'm a mother. and so is my mother, so we're going. we're probably going to skip all of the mother weekend activities (which includes a 5k, a dance and a heritage luncheon) and do our own thing (because our own thing is more fun and because all of those activites are lame--the 5k is lame because it is in idaho. in october. in the snow. bad idea).

aside from the fact that i have suddenly acquired a new wicked sore throat which makes me feel as though i have been smoking for so long my trachea has eaten itself, i will go anyway. i'm hardcore.

so wish me luck, my friends! i am excited to see my sister, experience the college where she "goes" and to take a break from mothering and entertaining two small children, unpacking an endless amount of boxes and cleaning a house that will not stay clean (especially with ava around).

And I am so excited to see you!

I was thinking the other day how I live on the third floor, which requires climbing lots of stairs, and how hard that will be for Mom to climb over and over.
If we ever go to our apartment, we'll have to stay there for hours to make the climb worth it.

Cool!!! You are the luckiest girl I know right now. To go to Rexburg is like going to Heaven. Have fun and please take lots of great pictures for me! I miss that place desperately.

Idaho huh? What's the point of going there if you don't run a 5k?

A dance? They have a dance? For mothers? Mothers dancing is frightening enough (I too am a mother and have seen myself dance) but JUST mothers dancing - no male partners or even 2-yr-olds to balance them out - is a truly terrifying picture. Hm. Probably smart to avoid that one. Enjoy your mommy vacation!

but can't the mothers be dancing with their kids? surely it isn't JUST the mothers dancing?

Two out of the three times I've flown home from Idaho they've lost my luggage.
