Day 150 – May 8, 2011

This morning, I woke up a little earlier that I wanted to (yet again!). I couldn’t figure out why the wireless network was so slow, so I decided to try to figure it out. It turns out that the router wasn’t broadcasting its SSID, but at least the network was private 😀 So I set up the wireless network on your mom’s laptop, so hopefully it will be used for more than Solitaire 😀

After a late breakfast and some chit chat, it was time for me to go.. but not before we took some photos

Your mom and her Mother's Day present

The trip was definitely too short.. but I’m glad I got to go 🙂 Thanks L & H for having me over 🙂

Day 148 – May 6, 2011

This morning, I was craving Mexican pastries so MF & I made a trip down to the Mexican bakery.

*drool*

At lunch time, I went to meet up with my friend SK at the House of Blues.

Houston HoB

SK was in town for the day. Since I had a late breakfast (mmmm pastries), we just went to Starbucks to get some drinks. After chatting for a drink, we went to run a couple of errands — he needed to go make a deposit and pay his cell phone bill.

Shortly after I got home, I saw this..

Turns out it wasn't the kitty love we thought it was... it was more motherly LOL

Poor little Tomasa.. there was no milk that was going to come out of that nipple!! I laughed and laughed and laughed and eventually she stopped.

The kitties were just hanging out looking sad... as though they knew what was going on

I felt so bad separating them but I was under strict orders not to bring home the tiny little kitty 😦

In the afternoon, it was time to drive back to Austin! I put the cats in their carriers, loaded the cats, and finally loaded the kitties. It wasn’t too bad of a drive.. except Eddie wasn’t very still for a lot of the drive.

Such a curious little one!

The drive was pretty uneventful otherwise.. and after 22.5 days of being away from Austin, I was home 😀

Day 143 – May 1st, 2011

This morning, I got to sleep in a little bit… the cats aren’t waking me up to pet them.. but I did wake up surrounded by cats.. Dusty, Eddie, and Tomasa (the girl kitty). We all got ready to go to your brother’s. We stopped by Best Buy to get your brother a gift card.. then we were on the road!

While we were at your brother’s, we got to see your two babies… they’re both doing okay 🙂 On the way back, your mom called and I had to give her the bad news that I wasn’t going to visit her then {we were an hour away from her place plus I had left my GPS and my iPhone charger at MF’s place} so I made plans to visit her next weekend.

Driving back to Houston

Once we got back, we hung out for a bit.. and we decided we needed some more corn!! So we went back for more

Prepared corn and the frozen mango treat we also had last night

MF & I were debating whether it was the cheese or the pepper that made it taste different. Maybe it was both. I can’t believe the weekend’s over 😦

Day 136 – April 24, 2011

This morning, we basically had the same routine as yesterday.. got up, showered, got ready, went downstairs for breakfast… the only difference this morning was that we were in a disagreement… I was upset about how my parents were behaving and my dad said he wanted to leave as soon as possible, so I figured it was best that I didn’t go see AH and started our drive back to Canada. I felt bad not going to see her for many reasons, so since I was driving, I turned around and drove back into Boston.

Driving on I-90/ Mass Pike

In true Boston form, the GPS got us lost.. I couldn’t remember exactly how to get to AH’s place but I had an idea… anyway once we finally got there, it was super nice out. We chatted and got caught up. It was really nice seeing her, after about half hour, we were back on the road. All was going well until I started to feel sick. Luckily, there weren’t any accidents and I was thankful for a CVS that was open to help. It took us forever to get back across the border (we didn’t get charged duty and the passport stamp procedure was much faster), but then my mom started to feel sick. We got home and unpacked the car. It was one long day..

Day 134 – April 22, 2011

Today is a statutory holiday in Canada so I am the only one having to take a vacation day. I woke up to Dusty kneading me; I looked at the clock and it was almost 4am… we were supposed to be on the road at 3am. It turned out, only my sister set her alarm and she had set it for 2pm instead of 2am. We scrambled around and got ready to go.

Printing out the hotel confirmation and Buster watching intently

On our way to Boston (after the 2 hour wait at the border so I could get my passport stamped), we had to keep ourselves entertained.. I chatted with you for a bit and my sis mostly slept, especially as a co-pilot… but she was awake enough to try out the 3DS.

she liked it.. but playing w/the 3DS plus being in a moving car was not a good combination for her

Once we got to the Boston area, we went straight too the mall.

On their way to shop

We shopped until the mall closed (I got a dress and a pair of shoes), then we went to check into the hotel. We were pretty exhausted and fell asleep before 11. More shopping tomorrow!
