On the Road

Hi all-we are currently in Pittsburgh visiting family in STEELER COUNTRY!! I come from a long line of Steeler fans-when I was a kid, my dad dyed our black and white dog's white fur yellow so she was black and gold for that year's superbowl, I kid you not-if I can find the pictures of it, I will scan them and post them. We are very excited to be up here surrounded by crazy fans to watch the Steelers stomp the Cardinals on Sunday. It would be nice to be watching it in person in warm Tampa , Florida, but seeing as the cheap nosebleed seats are going for around $1400 apiece (seriously people?? you can fly to Ethiopia for that kind of money-and come home with something much better than a sore throat and foam finger!!), we're just fine with being here. It is cold and snowy here and we went to Chuck E. Cheese for the afternoon on this cold, snowy, apparently birthday party-filled Saturday afternoon-no, I do NOT know what we were thinking. We had gift cards for that place that someone gave us for Christmas-and now we will never speak to that person again. Wow. Spending the afternoon there makes me look forward to our really long plane ride home from Ethiopia with a screaming baby is all I'm saying....

ETA: WOOOOOOOO HOOOOOOOOOO!!! Go Steelers!!! You guys are da bomb!!!

ummmmm, I HATE chuck e. cheese, it is the most horrible, horrible place on earth. I'm sorry you had to go there.:) I rarely use the word hate, and here, it applies.

You are too funny! But I totally agree. On the Chuck E Cheese thing. Not on the Steelers thing.

I feel your pain...I never dreamed I'd be waiting this long for a referral...especially when she said to expect it in January..maybe even December. Now, she didnt even sound confident for February...Oh, well..the waiting is WAY harder than I ever expected...kristi
