Hi everyone, Katie here.
I wish I were Gabe today. As I write, he's jetting back to San Diego. There's a big difference between San Diego and Minneapolis, besides the obvious advantage of ME being in Minneapolis. There's also a difference of about 90 degrees. It was 15 degrees below zero when Glogirly and Gloman got into their garaged SUV with the heated seats to meet Gabe at the airport for the big goodbye. I'm sure it was pretty cold when Gloman turned over the heated steering wheel to the parking attendant inside the climate controlled valet garage. Do I live with a couple of wusses or what???
It will be six or seven months before Gabe and I can continue our conversations about girls and catnip. So for now we'll have to remain Facebook friends.
I thought you might enjoy seeing proof of the cross country skiing adventure that precipitated my most recent abandonment. I find it curious there is no photographic evidence of Gloman wearing a pair of skis. Hmmmmm.
Some of you commented about the lack of mountainous terrain in Minnesota. Believe me, for the sake of Glogirly and Gabe, that's a GOOD thing.
Don't let this smile fool you. She's so cold she can barely feel her legs. And her muscles are so sore she's still walking around the townhouse like she rode a horse across the country.
Hey Gabe, nice pose. We are not impressed with your "Look Mom, No Poles" antics. Good move not showing your snow-covered backside to the camera though. Not that there's anything wrong with falling down on your @ss. A cat would never...
I guess this cross country skiing business is quite a workout. Glogirly's face is frozen in the fake-smile-OMG-I-can't-move position. Meanwhile Gabe has already passed out.
But a good time was had by all. The north shore of Lake Superior is one of the G-family's favorite getaway spots. Winter, summer, spring or fall... it's always beautiful. And not too shabby of a view out their rented resort window...
Pee S to Glogirly:
Not that I care. But you might want to consider bringing me along next time. I make an excellent seat warmer you know.
