Vacation, or Not

I may or may not be going on vacation for the next few weeks.

I may or may not have "light" posting from the road, exhausted from traveling and restricted in my computer access.

I may or may not have "heavy" posting from the road, inspired by traveling and rested by the break from daily household obligations.

I may or may not be checking my email.

I may or may not have anything to say. Ok, you know that one's a joke. You just KNOW that I always have something to say :)


Yep...I was beginning to worry until the last comment about having nothing to say. Now I know all is still well:)

The crazy thing is that I have a dozen long blog entries written in my head, but absolutely no time to write them (at least not coherently) because I've been getting ready for the big trip.

Heaven help me, its practically a march across the South visiting relatives. This is the most ambitious "vacation" we've ever undertaken, especially with children.

LOL. The packing had gotten so ridiculously out-of-hand that my husband intervened. He came home yesterday with one of those cute trailors that pull behind the van. The kind that look like a short horse-trailor without the ventilation. The color matches the van! He's a sweetie. Just think what I can haul cross-country now!

Luxury packing space? He is a sweetie!

Hi Lucy! Tammy linked me to your site. Thought I'd stay and play a while. Very refreshing!

I just returned from my vacation and now all the people I like are on theirs. We should have coordinated better!

Welcome, Leni! So sorry to be gone when you arrived. There should be practically an explosion of posting on the 16th (if I have to hire a babysitter)

I'm checking in from Columbia, SC. It dawned on me that I have five minutes of online time because of a storm. Typical :)

For the morbidly curious, I've learned that vacations are like hitting yourself in the head with a hammer ... it feels good when you stop. LOL. I crack myself up!

Unfortunate events, episodes, and incidents that I will be able to laugh about later: frogs, ants, jellyfish, sea-lice, "sensitive" relatives, "insensitive" relatives, bad food, bad hotels, three children with pink eye, two adults and one child with sinus infections, parks covered with alligator warnings (like thats the most natural thing in the world!), etc. And the trips only half over! Turn in next time as the meladrama continues :)

Oh my, you DO know how to vacation, don't you? LOL!

Aww, you get used to the gators after a while. Try camping in a state park which is full of gators (big ones). The first time we camped there, I confess I was a bit nervous. Now the thrill is entirely lost.

Now we just fish and then dangle what we catch over the heads of the gators below and watch them snap at it. It's all old hat now.

OK..Lucy, up until now I've bee patient.....WHERE THE HECK ARE YOU?????

No...just kidding....I hope all is well and that you post something soon :)

Sea lice? Sounds pretty bad. :(

FYI - Now that we are back, we're doing major home renovation. As part of that, we are temporarily without home internet access. (To save some money, we eliminated the luxury of broadband and I forgot that I had removed and packed our modem boards from our PCs when we installed broadband. I'll have to find what I did with them and reinstall them before we can use dial-up.)

Lucy has much to blog about and greatly anticipates the day when she can access the web again. Hopefully it will be by mid-August.

Lucy's Husband | 07/28/2004 - 08:48 PM

Ok - it is now Mid-August. Go please.

(Mid means sometime between the 1st and 31st, right?)
