|Don't they look great?|
Because the floors smell so ridiculously bad, we had to leave town for 4 days. We packed 2 vehicles full of sleeping bags, air mattresses, and food, and then Drama Queen and I took the kids to Classic Fun Centers where they bounced around in the bounce houses for an hour and then we took them to Menchies for frozen yogurt and then we went back to the house and sat in the car on the driveway for another half hour before it was finally time to leave.
The 2-hour drive to my dad's house was exhausting! My sweetie did the driving and I read a book to everyone, but we were all near the edge and by the time we finally arrived, we still had to set up sleeping areas, etc.
Even though my dad has plenty of beds, when we stay at his house, the kids prefer to have one big camp out in the living room, that's why we take all the air mattresses and sleeping bags. Besides, my dad doesn't need all the extra laundry because we used his bedding.
|Me and Baby Doll feel the same way.|
Monday was great except for the nearly constant drizzle. Not enough rain to keep us from stopping at all the cemeteries, just enough to make it uncomfortable. But I'm not complaining. Utah is so dry this year, the rain has been welcome! In fact, I'm praying for more rain today. I have the Raingutter Regatta for Pack Meeting (oh, I forgot to tell you about embroidering 12 hats, making certificates and fliers, and gathering all the stuff like the raingutters was also part of last week) and 2 ballgames tonight. I just can't be in 3 places at the same time.
We got back home on Monday about 4:30. I was so tired, I went to my bedroom, opened the windows, closed the door, and collapsed on my bed for a couple of hours. That nap gave me the energy I needed to help unload the vehicles and feel like a real person again.
Now to face a new week...
