Super secret spy mission

Well I leave in the dark of night to head into the belly of the PTSA beast. I am off to the convention.
I really do have to leave before the crack of dawn to drive to the strange place they call "Happy Valley" Through the evils of morning rush hour traffic. To be indoctrinated into the ways of PTSA and learn the secrets of sucking up to the teachers union and hosting a "stomp"
I get to sleep in a strange hotel with people I hardly know. I hope no one snores,
I hope I get my own bed! I hope we get good food, I hope I can stay awake!

I will have a full report on my super secret spy activitys when I return.

I realised that I may have to explain what a "stomp" is I don't know if its a Utah word or a US word but I know that not everyone that reads this is from the US and not always from Utah. A stop is just an after school dance. Just so you didn't feel out of the loop ;O)

Ssssshhhh! Secret Squirrel!! Oops! Think I just showed my age! Tee! Hee! Hee! I have a mental picture of you in a trenchcoat and fedora, lurking behind potplants and whispering secret code words like, "Pst, where's the dining room?" And 'Happy Valley' always makes me think of an asylum - you'll have to report back about that one!! Tee! Hee! Hee! Have a good trip and if they don't give you your own bed, tip a glass of water on one side and curl up pretending to be asleep on the other. Of course, this may backfire if you roll over in the night!!! Bear Hugs! KRIS (Tag Along Teddies)

Hope you had a good trip to Happy Valley! What a name! I have learned to take ear plugs along when staying at a hotel. Even if the room mates are quiet, the people in the hall ways aren't!

I could use a good Stomp with a bunch of quilters! Sigh. Don't get caught spying. Are you a single or double?

Rebecca said...

Been there, done that...but I got to sleep in my own bed. That's definitely a benefit of living in this "strange place" we call Happy Valley! LOL!

Stomps? Do you really have kids that old?
