Gone fishin'


On the road again...

By some miracle, I managed to finish packing, and hubby, the kids, the dog, and I are now on our way to see my parents.

Okay, that's not entirely true. I'm actually writing this post at 1:46 a.m. as I wait for my ninth of eleven loads of laundry to dry. I'm surrounded by half-packed suitcases and a long list of things I still need to do. But no matter. I'm optimistic that my first sentence will be true by the time you read this post. ☺

I'm also writing to let you know that I probably won't be posting during my vacation. I'll be staying with my parents, who have neither a working computer nor Internet access, and I don't own a laptop (yet. Every time my husband asks me what I want for Mother's Day, Christmas, my birthday, whatever, I always mention a laptop. Someday...)

Anyway, I'm going to try to get in a trip or two to the library, and if I do, I'll definitely post here and visit your blogs. I'm not sure how likely it is that I'll get to a computer, but I will try. (I can't stay unplugged for long!) So I hope you can forgive my two-week absence here and at your blogs. I'm looking forward to catching up when I get back!

Happy Sunday! See you soon. ☺

  1. That's a lot of laundry! I've been known to stay up most of the night to do laundry before a trip, but I know it wasn't that many loads.

    See you when you get back!

  6. Enjoy your break from technology and with your parents. You are so lucky to still have them, so just eat them up while you're gone! We will miss you, but we fully expect to read every one of our posts within two hours of returning home. Oh, and my husband practically forced me to get a laptop and I fought it for years. Now I couldn't live without it. Okay, I could, but I don't want to!

    1. I failed! I've been home much longer than two hours and have only gotten to a few blogs. Lazy me. ;)

      I took your advice and had a great time visiting my parents. I just wish I could see them more often.

      Still no laptop, but I'm working on it. :)

  17. Thanks, everyone! We had a really good time visiting my parents. I only get to see them once a year, so I love just spending time with them at home. It was nice to be back where I'd grown up. :)
