Hey...wha' happened?

We're going to Texas, baby! Will got a kick-arse deal from Southwest Airlines, saving us about $1000. The catch? Oh, yeah...well, we have to come down in about 2 weeks. Two weeks??? That's right, two weeks. The kids and I will be staying for a whole month and Will is coming down the last week of September. So, if you know me, send an email letting us know the best times to visit. If you don't know me you can send me an email saying 'Congratulations, you rock!' Or something like that.

Remember that time when I alluded to a possible business deal? No. You don't. I never made an allusion to anything. That was in your head and it never happened. Be sure to tell your psychologist you're having fantasies of the Harrisons owning businesses.

Actually, what started as a promising business purchase is not altogether over, although we know we could be on our last legs. An iconic local coffee shop is up for sale at a devastatingly reasonable price. Will and his friend, who used to own a bike shop in Houston, have been speaking with the owners and the local bank about purchasing the shop. All we need is a mere $70,000 in earnest money to secure the rest of the loan from the bank. The boys are being quite resourceful, speaking with local entrepeneuers and what-not, but we also know that other investors have signed confidentiality agreements with the owner and are also pursueing the purchase. The nerve of some of these jokers. Soooo, we're still committed to raising money until the game is up. At that point we'll show up drunk at the coffee shop yelling "We never liked coffee, anyway! You stupid uglyhead poopfaces!"

We start school one week from tomorrow. I have a kajillion things to do to get ready. I hope to post a 'Back to School' very special episode soon. But this afterschool special won't feature any teen pregnancies or cocaine fueled atheletes. We hope.

Well have a great time in Texas! I still have to look up that town you said you were from... I forget where it is in relation to where my hubby is from. Have a SAFE trip and SUPER DUPER good luck on the business venture! (How's that for adolescent best wishes? ugh. I never grew up.)

Have a great time. And if you ever run into a heap o' trouble, just shout out "The stars at night are big and bright--" then watch and be amazed.
