josie's on a vacation far away

Well, sort of. My name isn't Josie and I'm not on a vacation far away.

In fact, I'm not on vacation at all. However, on Monday morning, I'll be leaving for a few days and going south.

To my sister's.

To stay with her family.

With my two sons.

And my mom.

By car.

Seven hours.

One way.

To do such fun things as shop the local WalMart and stare at each other for four days until someone asks (for the 20th time that particular day) "Whatcha wanna do now?"

And then I get to repeat the process on the way home.

So it's not so much a vacation as it is a test of wills.

I'll pop in from time to time because it's not like I'm going somewhere remote with no cable or Internet access and no one speaks the language. I've left you with the rambling treasures I so love below so it's just like you're carrying a little piece of me with you. Awww.

You know I'd do anything for you.

If the makers of Xanax ever needed to make a commercial to market their product, this post would make great material.

You have my sympathies.
