Travel related randomness

I leave tomorrow for my Board meeting in Jackson Hole. When my father heard I was going to Jackson Hole, his response was "Take a warm coat." Duh. Because it never would occur to me to take a coat to Wyoming in March. It is a balmy 16*F at my destination. Fabulous! Tomorrow's forecast- cloudy with snow showers in the morning giving way to a mixture of snow and rain by afternoon. Even more fabulous! Hubby called to ask me to make a list of what is available in the freezer to fix for dinner on the nights while I am gone. I said I would take a few things out and thaw them in the fridge. Which is fine with him, but is still "missing the point." The point being...opening the refrigerator door to look at the food is too taxing? A list of the dishes is more helpful than the printed cooking instructions on the food itself? Whatever. So I am off to lovely Wyoming for five days, during which I will be in a conference room, not on the ski slope or sightseeing in the Grand Tetons. And the kids will not miss me a bit, if my last trip is any indication. Cross your fingers that I don't get snowed in.

    Hubby- aka DH My husband since 1995. He is the head of the band department at a college prep school, and dabbles as a wanna-be pop star.

    The Princess- aka DD. Third grader at the local parochial school. Loves butterlies, sparkly things, the color purple and has recently developed a crush on one of the twins from "The Suite Life of Zach and Cody". Is ready for her teenage years, having already perfected her exasperated sigh and dramatic eye-roll.

    Hoss- aka DS1. Kindergartener and resident spirited child. His aunt likes to call him "the evil genius" because of his penchant for letting a lack of intellectual stimulation lead him into mischief. Likes trucks, sports, building things and burping. His current favorite word is "underwear."

    Lil Joe- aka DS2. Born in 2003. Doesn't say much we can understand, but has mastered the important stuff ("eat!", "Wash hands!", "Want chocolate ones!", "Hockey game!") Likes to push buttons, much to the consternation of whoever is trying to watch a DVD. Firmly refuses to use the potty, despite evidence that he is physically ready to be out of diapers, indicating a level of stubborn that eclipses even that of his parents and siblings.

    Me? I'm the Mama. That's all you need to know.
