Mom flew in on Friday night. We stopped at the grocery store and then of course the wine store (spent more on booze than food...what can ya do). Then we got home so she could meet Mr. Oliver. That meeting was not as smooth as I thought it would be. I think he got scared before I left for the airport and ran into the closet without my knowledge. So, of course as I was cleaning I shut the closet doors.
...4 1/2 hours later we get home. Someone was pissed. Whoops.
|Needless to say there was a lot of this...|
That was pretty much the only snafu for the weekend. Saturday morning, Alex had to be at the fire station around 6am. As the fam bam and I were on our way to Golden for the graduation and pinning, I get a text. "Sit in an isle. You are going to be pinning me." Uhh..jigga whaaat? I was not prepared for this. Then......THEN I find out that we are the first ones to go. Sweet.
Where do I get the badge?
Where do I pin it?
On the tail?
Down then up then through? Huh?
Do we high five after?
Where do I stand?
So, needless to say, I figured it out. I handled it. AND he didn't bleed. Over all a successful visit.
|With his buddy Ryan|
|The board of badges before the ceremony.|
|It's an old wooden pipe (right, Alex??) the class gave to their head instructor.|
|I was pro at pinning compared to some of those other suckers. They must not do as well under pressure.|
|Mom and I both have #1. shiny shoes #2. A.D.D.|
|Alex with his dad and new helmet.|
|My mom is the new Annie Leibovitz.|
|"Am I allowed to put this on?" "I dunno. Hurry up."|
|A real firehouse pole!|
Me: "Why on Earth would I need a stripper pole?"
Mom: "It's like a fire pole."
Me: "No. No it's not"
Mom: "Ya, we are getting you one so Alex thinks it's a firepole."
Me: "No. No. Not the same. Don't want one."
I need snow boots...things for a wedding...wine....coffee...money for a honeymoon...essentials! I don't need a stripper pole, mom. If you think I should work out, maybe a Wii Fit is more up my alley. Please...and thank you.
