Vacation Week

The view from the backseat:

Day 1 of Vacation begins for Rob and I today. We have led up to a week of off days with a hectic weekend schedule that included a haircut for the boy, a pre-trip shopping excursion, cleaning and laundry duties, car maintenance and garden upkeep (my tomatoes have been ruined by bugs)! J.T. had a swim party for a friend and I came home with a vicious headache and went straight to bed.

This morning we left the house at 9 a.m. to get J.T.'s vaccinations updated before meeting my sister and her boys at Splash in the Boro. We have walked in the door a scant few minutes and I still have to clean their ears with alcohol so we don't run into any issues with swimmers' ears. Rob cleaned out and washed my car, poor fellow, while we were gone... and took it by for a car wash for a thin coat of wax (Mr. Details is dictating this bit over my shoulder right now).

Tomorrow we have our annual Anniversary Trip to Savannah. The 11th time we've made this trip. He has a list, I have a list... the car is gassed up and ready, babysitting plans have been set, the bank run completed.

Wednesday we leave for Wild Adventures. Part zoo, part amusement park, part water playground... what's not to love? Something for everyone. This is our first big car trip with Abby. Valdosta is a 4 hour drive from Statesboro.... and she is the child who thought her Easter bucket was a throw up bucket for the car and was quite excited by the idea of trading the plain one for a pink one with eggs on it. We haven't had a car sick episode in several months... so.... fingers crossed!

We return Friday. I know you'll miss me. Aunty Evil may need medication just to get through the week. Actually it's just Abby, her "proxy child" she'll miss. Probably sending her evil vibes as I type, to make sure my vacation doesn't get too dull. So if you don't hear from me until the weekend, don't be surprised. I'll take pictures for show and tell later.

We're taking my laptop and the Holiday Inn has WiFi so you could update during the week if you wanted to.

By the way your car was NASTY. I deserve Hazard Pay [cough(sex)cough], just not hazardous sex...not my thing.

That hair still looks very glam, I have to say. Have a wonderful week, it sounds like a lot of fun!

Rob should know that his plan could really mess up the car...

Enjoy your relaxation.

Tell Abby to remember all the evil stuff I sent her telepathically.

I love that pic of you, you look gorgeous! (Not in a hazardous sex kind of way like Rob sees you, more of a "I am a woman who is quite happy to acknowledge that another woman looks lovely" kind of way)

Have a happy and safe trip!

I love that pic too. I hope you have a great trip. I keep trying to convince that cleaning up the car is his job (it's an "Outside Chore" is my rationale) but he insists that it's mine because the kids and I make all the mess. End result? Permanently disgusting car.
