Not much to say. Boring day. 24 days until our vacation. Or 3 weeks, 4 days, 8 hours and 49 minutes. Give or take a few. Not that I'm tracking all that closely. I worry that the more I long for our vacation the slower it will arrive and the faster it will spend itself. Time is shitty that way.
We should schedule some killer camping trips NOW so we have something to look forward to once we get back.
Things we must do before we leave:
Make our final decision on how best to listen to the iPod while driving
Get Kristin's car in for an oil and air filter change.
Sell a couple of non-essential organs so as to be able to afford the increasing cost of gas
Buy a travel high-chair booster thingie for Julia.
Get the dogs microchipped
Write up exhaustive housesitting/pet-caretaking notes for the housesitters
Buy a CF card with more storage for the digi
Get more of our CDs loaded into iTunes
I'm sure there's more. I'm sure I'll think of them the Wednesday before we leave. And so it goes.
What we accomplished this weekend:
Began the monumental task of recovering our yard from the wreckage winter makes of it.
We have 1 cubic yard of beautiful pink sandstone nuggets and 3 cubic yards of dark brown wood chips being delivered on Tuesday, (we accomplished the ordering of such loveliness) so we bought a wheelbarrow. Now I just have to put it together.
The only thing we did for the kitchen was buy the paint needed to cover the new arches and touch up the ceiling. Hopefully we'll get the walls textured and painted before the weekend.
This weekend coming up we will finally knock the hole in the side of the house. Happy times! I'll be helping my dad do that while Kristin works on the yard.
And that's it. That's all I have to say today.
Oh, one more thing. I've promised Kristin that the only reason I'm taking my lap top on vacation with us is so we can play music on it and I can move pictures from the CF card to the hard drive. In other words, I have promised her that I won't be blogging while we're on vacation. I may call in some audio posts, but that's it. Nothing else.
Anyone want to guest blog for me? You know, keep my seat warm? You don't have to do it for the whole time, if you don't want to, I'm willing to allow a team of guest bloggers to make themselves comfortable in my digs.
Think about it. Let me know.
