my excuse slip

Sorry for the radio silence lately.
I feel like I need my parents or JB to write me an excuse.
I loved to skip school, and generally always reached my quota for the semester in high school.
that says very little for the high school i went to since i would get all A’s… 
my parents egged me on, and i guess if i was a different kid, they’d have forced me to go.
my mom would say, let’s go to the beach.  my dad would say, let’s go to lunch.
a few times my father wrote me a note and then when I turned it in to the front office, it wouldn’t say “excuse my daughter, for she was sick/had an appointment/etc.”
it would say:
“excuse my daughter for being the sweetest girl in the whole world”.  
dads. they are the best.
and the next best thing to having your mom visit, would have to be her best friends.
that’s a good excuse for my lack of blogging? right? (:
My 3 southern mamas have been in town and we have been having the very best time.
They are now back home and I am currently missing them something serious.
I cannot remember when i have laughed so hard, so often.  Like many of you, laughter through tears is my favorite emotion.   I was caught doing just that a couple times a day for the past week … so much so that it was pointless to wear mascara.  
best ab workout ever.  followed by stuffing my face with every pastry known to man. 
We had some excellent Basel days and I thought I’d walk you through our time here so if you ever decide to hop over to Basel you will have an excellent time too.
They stayed at the Hotel Steinenschanze, which i give ten thumbs up to!   
Big breakfasts, helpful staff, clean rooms, free bus/tram tickets, and free coffee, tea, wine, whenever you’d like.  So if you are staying the night here  and your budget allows, stay here.
