Packing Up and Heading Out
After a wonderful evening in a lovely room overlooking the river between New Hampshire and Vermont, we are off to explore. Yes, for the 15th time since I was conceived I will not be in church this morning. There was no church near here with a website, so I guess they lose out. ;-)
We are having a truly delightful time together and have only been interrupted by these kinds of calls from the children:
JImmy: MOm, I have to talk to Dad. It's a cooking question.
Me: Well, you can't drive and talk on the phone out here, so you'll have to talk to me.
Jimmy: But Mom, it's a COOKING question.
Me: Well, I MIGHT know the answer, or I can ask him. He's right here.
Jimmy: OK, I"m making Rice a Roni. It says 2 Tablespoons of Margarine. I'm going to make 2 boxes. How much margarine is that?
Me: 4 Tablespoons Jimmy.
Jimmy: OK, Thanks Mom.
3 minutes later the phone rings again
Jimmy: Mom, is Dad there?
Me: Jimmy, he can't come to the phone.
Jimmy: OK, but I have another cooking question
Me; Well, try me again.
Jimmy: If it says 2 and a half cups of water for one box, how much is that for two?
Me: Five Jimmy.
Jimmy: OK, Mom. Thanks. Bye.
