Gett'n the heck outta dodge...

Honestly, I have no idea what that means.  But the little men and I are heading out of town tomorrow for a few days in Texas-country.  Flat lands, open fields, Mexican food, my sisters, my kin, The Science Spectrum, good friends, some photo shoots and a little R-N-R!  This has been an insane past few weeks for me.  I'm ready to chill a bit.  The boys are so excited to see their cousins and aunts and uncle and Grammy and OP and Cracker and BJ and the puppies and maybe even get to hop in OP's hot tub if the weather conditions are ok for it.  They are not excited about the 8.5 hour drive.  Neither am I.  But the Pilot has a DVD player, lots of leg room, and I've stocked up on snacks.  We're outta here.

ps -we'll miss you like crazy Daddy and are already counting down the minutes until we get to see you again!! xoxoxoxo

"To leave somewhere immediately, to evacuate or scram. "Get the hell out of Dodge" is a reference to Dodge City, Kansas, which was a favorite location for westerns in the early to mid 20th century. Most memorably, the phrase was made famous by the TV show "Gunsmoke," in which villians were often commanded to "get the hell out of Dodge." The phrase took on its current meaning in the 1960s and 70s when teenagers began to use it in its current form."
