Yesterday, I spent almost the entire day with my family.
I have 45 tons of pictures to prove it.
After I got home last night, I spent about an hour and a half photoshopping, and now I have ‘mouse hand’.
We had such a great time.
Superman and Chefboy got GPS’s for their vehicles.
Did you know that a GPS will keep track of your speed?
And then it has the audacity to make noises at you when you go over a set limit?
Both men had them out, playing with them as I drove the 40 minutes home.
Two GPS’s make for a very interesting ride.
Superman: I set my speed to go off at 55.
Chefboy: Me too. Oh. Look, we’ve got 7 satellites tracking us.
Stupid GPS: (noise sounding because I have exceeded 55 mph)
CB: Mom your over the speed limit.
CC: I have the cruise set at 60.
SM: Nope now we have 10.
CB: Hey look you can see the strength of the satellites.
Stupid GPS: (more noise)
CB: go to options…blah…blah…blah…
GPS : (noise) and CC wanting to smash either or both GPS’s.
Then there was a bunch of noises because the testosterone twins decided to play with the voices and the different noises it would sound when I exceeded 55mph.
Oh, I tell you it was such a joy to ride home.
CB: It says we will arrive home at 7:49pm
CC: (snorting) No way. We will get home at 7:30.
SM: But this says….
GPS: (making awful noise again)
CB: It calculates it from your speed mom, we will get home at…oh, it is saying 7:46pm now.
GPS: (more awful noises)
GPS: After 700 more yards, make a left
CC: (rolls eyes)
CB: Ooooh Mom, go straight up here. I wanna see what she will do if we mess with her.
CC: (more eye rolling, and drives straight instead of turning like I am supposed to)
GPS: Turn right.
CC: (eyes are beginning to ache from the rolling)
CB: Wow, it didn’t take her long to recalculate.
CC: (oh, my eyes)
Guess what time we arrived home?
7:30pm on the dot, and I didn’t need a GPS to tell me that!
Here is one shot from yesterday. Isn’t Sister just the prettiest thing ya ever did see?
The boy just walked in from outside. Just now.
Just so you know, “we can get seven satellites just from the back deck”.
