Things have been crazy busy here. I have gotten behind on everything due to planning on taking the girls on the old-style family road trip. We were originally planning on flying to Chicago but the idea of doing that with a toddler became too overwhelming. Traveling with children is something I find overwhelming without adding in airports and rental cars.
We bought the dual-screen DVD player for the car and installed it in the third row seat. That provides at least a small buffer between us and them. After extensive packing and some planning, we are just about ready to get on the road. Wish me luck.
In other news, my oldest son, Noah, is getting married. It’s a spur of the moment kind of deal. The wedding is in one week and I just heard about it a week ago. Our vacation will be shortened as a result but there is no way I would miss it. I must admit that a little tiny part of me wishes that they had given more notice or just eloped. I bought the girls dresses already but they don’t fit which means starting all over. I have yet to even start looking for something to wear and think that there is a very real possibility that I might show up in my vacation attire, capri’s and my old Rocket Dog shoes.
I have lots more to share but little time. I’m taking my laptop and will be updating from the World’s Largest Ball of Twine, provided they have WiFi of course.
