Venus/Mars thingy continued............. In order to understand this post please read the one underneath it first please! lol
Ok, it's now time for my birthday surprise! The only clue I was given was we were going back up to Lake Geneva Wisconsin and it was also Valentines weekend....lots of romantic things to do up there for sure!
I packed my usual going away for the weekend things but added a pair of warm boots. Jim's only hint...but that could mean so many things right? Skiing? Horse drawn carriage rides in the snow? Shopping in town at all the quaint little shops? I wish!!!!!
Little did I know I was entered in my first Ice Fishing Tournament! Now don't anybody go and get jealous and go on and on how spoiled I am! lol So at this point I think I am ok with this, we will be away at a nice resort right? NOT! Little did I know that he had friends up there who we were going to spending the night with....on the floor! I woke up on the floor with a cat sleeping on top of me and some strange guy sitting in a chair watching me sleep.........can you say creeeepy!!!?? lol This was soooo not going how I thought it would!
I woke up a lil freaked out, my back was hurting and I was to dress like an Eskimo to sit in an ice tent on an upside down 5 gallon bucket, waiting to pull a fish out of a frozen lake through a small hole.......needless to say I was loosing my sunny disposition and I was getting whiney! Did I mention I was whining?? lol lol lol No resort, non big feather bed, no roaring fireplace.......me and a bunch of nondescript men freezing my arse off on a cold February morning! Not even breakfast! Grrrrrr!
Jim had just bought a brand new pick up truck maybe a week earlier, it was a really nice truck. Jim was also in charge of getting the minnows for the "guys" so off I traipsed behind him to go for a ride to get the bait and attempt to ice fish.....runny nose and all.
We pull into the bait shop, we get out of the truck, we walk into the bait shop, we buy another 5 gallon bucket of minnows and we walk back out to the truck, Jim puts the bucket on the floor board up front by me so it won't slosh around on the drive, I climb up into the cab of the pick up truck and accidentally kick over the bucket of minnows.............yes all over the floor board of his new pick up truck, minnows are everywhere, some have even made it to the back seat floor board, five gallons of water travels fast and I think I am about to get killed!
He doesn't even look at me, he orders me out of the truck, get out of the truck RIGHT NOW KIM! Am I going to be strangled then stranded at a bait shop in Wisconsin? On my birthday no doubt?
