and it's important too...

Yesterday I had an important meeting with a group of important people that belong to an important organization here in Texarkana. I had to make an important presentation to make an important proposal regarding and important partnership between an important event and aforementioned important organization...
Could I be any more vague?!?!
Sorry, I just can't give out too much info on this just yet. I don't wanna put the cart before the horse if you know what I mean.
  The meeting was held at this preserved Victorian here in Texarkana known as the Ace of Clubs. You can see why it's called that in the areal photo. The house was "built in 1885 in the shape of a playing card "club" with money won from a poker game; now a tour home and museum."
Unfortunately the meeting wasn't held inside the house, it was in the "carriage house" located behind the home instead. Boooooring... I wanted to go inside! Whine, whine, whine. See what's in there?? In the 40s-60s the last woman of the house had accumulated 500 pairs of shoes from  Neiman Marcus. There's a lot of fashion in that house and I wan't in!
The boring carriage house.
At the meeting I was so nervous that my legs were weak and wobbly and I had to sit down to finish my presentation. That's very unusual for me. Public speaking doesn't bother me at all, even if I'm not prepared - but this time my nerves decided to work against me. I think I played it off fairly well though.
Since the meeting rolled over well past dinnertime, me and the family stopped at a Chinese buffet and stuffed ourselves silly - it's the American way! Even River was full to bursting on imitation crab and lo mein.

...passed out in the car with his big full tummy hanging out...
He slept through the trip into the house, a diaper change and all of my attempts to rouse him since it was 7pm - WAY too late for a nap.
I wish I could sleep like that.
Alright party people. I've missed out on 50 blog posts so it's time to get caught up!
See ya on the flip side.

  14. Crikey, that house is insane!!!!

    I felt and looked like River last night after dinner....mostly because I drank far too much water with dinner, which I rarely do.
