Things I Have Learned Since Thursday

I haven't been good about posting because I'm on "vacation." L.E. and I are visiting my parents. I've learned a lot since we left Austin last Thursday...some of it not very interesting but hey, it's my blog and I have a little bit of writers' block.
  • L.E. does no wrong in her grandparents' eyes. I know that's the way grandparents are supposed to be, but maybe they should say something as she's jumping up and down on the couch while stabbing me with a fishing rod.
  • L.E. can adapt to ANY situation beautifully. We had a travel-day from Hell and she was such a trooper, even as we spent the night in a hotel 3 hours away from our house, woke up at 4:30 am to get to the airport, had a 2-hour layover that was unexpected and still had a smile on her face when we finally made it here...a full 24 hours after we left. Also, she somehow managed to potty-train herself.
  • I can still do lots of shots when coerced. I feel like my extended family in Hilton Head could convince anyone to do anything. They should all go into some kind of sales motivation business.
  • Life can exist without Netflix streaming. In the year 2013, there is a cartoon on some channel anytime of day.
  • One cannot diet while vacationing.
  • My mom really, really, really loved Argo.
  • My dad can do a #2 field change at the beach.
  • Alligators can live in the suburbs.

Good thing we're separated by that shallow pond...
I'm taking advantage of free babysitting provided by the grandparents so I'm crashing my sister's anniversary trip to go to Harry Potter World. So you may not see a post until later in the week.
