We headed up Friday night after BB3 got out of work - it was a long but pleasant drive, with no complications. However, I forgot about tigs' couple of boxes along the highway, so I didn't get to become a sneaky pete on this trip. *sigh* We got up to their house, settled in, chatted a bit, then headed to bed so that we could get a good start on the next day. I must say, that tigs and Mr. U. are fantastic hosts, and we felt right at home the whole time we were there!
Next morning, we headed out to go boxing, but before we left, I downed two cups of coffee (I NEED coffee in the morning before doing anything - I am a grumpus galumpus before it enters the bloodstream.) before the arrival of VT Ski Goddess! Finally we got to meet her, AND we got to spend the day boxing with her! Woo Hoo!!!!! We headed out and boxed, boxed, boxed, and had a great time! The only dissapointing part of the day was that one of tigs' boxes had dissapeared! Bummer, dude! Other than that, a great day boxing - which reminds me, I still need to log the boxes...

Then, someone driving by shouted "tiggermama!!!" and we all looked, and it was Pixie and mama Irish Chick! They parked, came and met with us, and we all decided to head somewhere else where we could sit and eat and relax. It was great seeing mama Irish Chick again, who we had met before, and now we got to meet Pixie, minus the Sprites, who were in the care of grandma, as I recall. Another new boxer to meet, and a great meet it was!!

After all this, we went back to casa del tig, we said goodnight to VTSG, chatted, munched and did chill a little, then hit the sack. Next day, Mr. U. and I worked on the stairs while tigs and BB3.....ummm......they did.....ummmm......hmmmm, I'm not sure. I think they took naps and then took more naps. I could be wrong. But, Mr. U. called it quits on the stairs for the day, and so we packed up tools, then packed up our car, but before we left, tigs and Mr. U. brought us to one more series of boxes, where we got one last set of VT boxes before heading home. And a great set of boxes it was! Plus, I got to visit Bulah!! ;)

But then, I turned around......and froze! The Maulers had left something behind!
RUN! RUN FOR YOUR LIVES!
