Niagara Falls

This past week a couple of my friends and I took off to Niagara Falls to get away from eveything. It was amazing. Not only did it feel like a break from work and reality but it was also a lot of fun! We goofed off a bit, especially in the Wax Museum with all the stars and movie characters, had several laughs and was even shocked when snow came out of the fans above us in the Ripley's Moving Theater.

We all decided to get up early and leaving at the nice time of 6:30 AM we were on our way. Making good time we arrived in Niagara Falls at 9:00 AM but after a while realized that I locked both the spare keys and my own keys in my bag in the trunk. Now you have to know me, I do this quite a bit and I am actually surprised I haven't got CAA yet. However this was the trifecta, this time I brought a spare pair but ended up putting it in the same bag as the main pair which was in the trunk. Thankfully my friend Kim had CAA, so we called them and in a record of 15minutes they were there opening my car. We had some great laughs over that. Even some people from work saw the photos online and started asking questions. Thankfully now however my friends know not to tell anyone........ lets hope.

Two days ago I started a 365 Day photo/ journal with my friend Jess, so far it hasn't been that bad. I am trying to not write it in a way that sounds like a diary: Dear diary, I woke up late this morning and wasn't sure what to do? As a kid those are the type of entries that I would write, but seriously? Its not going to answer you back. So this time I am just trying to stick with the facts. Such as yesterday one of my friends at work saw a kid come through the line-up, noticing her she says "aww look at that kid in the rabbit costume" Interested I look over to find a kid in a FROG costume. After correcting her and laughing so hard I started crying we came to the conclusion that as a teacher she has to stay away from any type of Science classes. If your kid comes home saying rabbits say ribbit, then you know who to come to.
