wife and kids don't know I'm coming.  I'm gonna take a vaca day on Wed for the drive since it's Jordan last basketball game of the season and I've only gotten to see him play a couple games early in the season.  I think i'l gonna leave early enough to get down Wed and pick him up from school/practice without telling him.  he'll be shocked.  Jay and Faith will be too.  will be a good time even though its only been 3wks since I've seen them.  my dad suggested it, offered to cover my gas for the trip, at $2/gal it will be a cheap trip.  I'll work from down there a couple days and drive home Sunday morn. 

 

it'll totally be worth it.

she'll get a heads up when i get to town and pick up Jordan from practice.  If I say something now she will tell me not to come.  trust me on this one, this is better with her not knowing.  :P

surprise worked well, I had Jordan in the car with me and I told him to be quiet while I spoke with wifey even though I was sitting out in the driveway.  I came walking in, of course she was like 'what hell are you doing here?? '  and then went on to say 'I live with a bunch of liars that hid this from me!!!' and laughed.  faith was of course very thrilled to see daddy tho she thought I should have brought the dogs with me

 

my view from the office today

I just wish I didn't have to go home.  there's sposed to be a snowstorm blow threw central IL and dump like 6-10" and frankly the snow clearing on I-57 isn't so hot, it will likely still be messy and slick on Sunday, may have to wait til monday and see what's up, luckily have Monday off

I think we're supposed to have bad weather Sunday with a front moving through and temps dropping.

probably won't be something to affect you in Bammy but as you move north it might.
