MONKEY HAD A BIRFDAY!!!
She got a surprise trip to Dizzyland - THREE AND A HALF HOURS from her school to Anaheim (should be only a 1.25 hr drive). Lord. Never doing that again. But she had a *great* time and was even more surprised by the appearance of her favorite Unca Douggles, his girlfriend, and her two kids ("Mah cuzzinz"). A great time was had by all. It didn't hurt that Unca's birthday was the day before - so we had a doubley good time. And yes, I did knit while waiting in line!!!
