Random Tuesday

It's Tuesday and time again for the randomness, which is about all I can do this morning.



So, Youngest is sick.  The last time we had a real family vacation, which was almost a decade ago, she got sick, too.  Raging ear in infection then, virus that her Dad had last week this time.  First time, we pumped her full of antibiotics the day before and went anyway.  This time, we're going to bundle her up and go.  She can sit at home with a fever and stuffy head or sit in the cabin with one.  Not much difference.  If she holds true to Hubby's pattern she should be over the worst of it today.

Call me a bad mother, if you will, but she's not stopping my vacation.  She can be miserable on the couch in the cabin just as easily as the couch here.

We finished her room yesterday while she was miserable on said couch.  We ended up taking 10 bags to Goodwill.  And got out two more bags of trash as we finished going through stuff we'd set aside.  But, I can see the floor.  Huzzah!

Hubby and friend managed to pull down our dilapidated porch.  I feel much less like white trash now. Or will once we get all the trash to the dump.

Oh my.  The puppy just climbed up on to a bag of socks that need sorting in Youngest's room and took a crap.  Yes, you read that right.  She climbed up the bag.  And pooped. Hubby is yelling at her all the while and I can only laugh.  It's quite funny looking.  White bag with little pile of poop on top like a decoration.

I have to pack and figure out how we're going to get everything we need into the cars and still get the trash to the dump, so I must go.  I plan on having a good time. sick child, crazy puppies and teenagers not withstanding.  If you don't hear from me by Saturday, I may have fallen off the face of the earth.

We got all our windows replaced over 6 weeks ago and all the old ones are still sitting beside the house. Some broken.

Yeah, I feel a little white-trashy...

I hear a couch in a vacatio cabin is actually ven better for illness than a couch at home...

I admire your determination to have a good vacation no matter what!

Hope the youngest feels better soon and that the puppy won't poop in any more unfortunate places.

Have a great time!

Oh, the puppy comment had me rolling! I can imagine my terrier doing the same thing and we all dismiss it as cute and then the beagle does it and we're shouting at her that she ought to know better. Ha!

Fantastic spring cleaning progress! I hung laundry outside today for the first time in months, I smell Spring!

Have a great vacation! And I think you're right about insisting that your daughter goes. Family togetherness might even cure her faster...

If it's been 10 years since your last vacation then you should go and not feel the least bit guilty about it. Heck, if it's been 10 MONTHS since your last vacation, you should go and not feel the least bit guilty about it.
