In which i have lots of shit coming up … or going down

It’s Saturday afternoon and I was thinking about chilling on the couch and flipping channels but I just realized that I only have a few posts written for this week and I have guests coming into town tomorrow and leaving on Wednesday and then on Thursday I’m flying to Vermont and not getting home until Sunday.

 

Since it takes PERFECT conditions for me to actually write a post I thought I should hop all over that and write one now.  So here I am and I actually had a topic but somewhere between my shower and here I’ve already forgotten it.  SEE?  This huge drain of gray matter is affecting every single aspect of my life.  If I could just REMEMBER all the awesome and amazing thoughts I had every single day, I could be a year ahead on this blog.

 

At any rate, things are rather chaotic with all this shit coming up.  Normally, summer is a very laid back time for this family as the kids tend to go elsewhere so I don’t have many activities going on.  But this year, Daniel is around ALL SUMMER and now Andie is home too.  I also haven’t been up to Vermont to visit my in-laws in about 4 years.  Isn’t that awful?

 

It wasn’t that I planned it that way; it just happened.  Originally, they were going to come down here for the girls various and sundry graduations but that never panned out.  Kevin goes up and sees them a few times a year and takes one kid or another with him but I’ve always had stuff going on and somehow it’s been FOREVER since I’ve been up there.

 

So, I’m going this time and we’re headed up Thursday.  The big debate is do we take any kids and if so, how many.  Andie just got back from Europe and is starting her “shadowing” so do we make her miss that?  And Daniel, what about him?  Keely obviously can’t go because she’s working in Washington but ironically, she’s the one who would be happy to go.

 

So, what to do?  Do you have your kids go because that’s their grandparents and they should see them? Or do you let them just make their own decisions?  And if you let them make their own decisions, do you explain to them about “guilt” if something should happen before they see their grandparents again?  The whole thing is a huge maelstrom of emotion and guilt.  Not for me though. I’m going you see.

 

At any rate, I have guests coming tomorrow and I’m pretty psyched about that.  Then I’m off to Vermont and then I have to go to a Lacrosse Tournament in Wilmington, NC where I shall melt to death.  Immediately after that I’m leaving for California for about two weeks and by the time I get back, it’s already August 7th and summer is practically over!  Crazy right?

 

So, back to Vermont.  It’s Saturday (as I said) and we still haven’t made any reservations because my kids can’t decide what to do.  On top of all that, Kevin is in the middle of two business deals and has been traveling to Chicago and Los Angeles.  As a matter of fact, he just informed me that he’d be in LA when I’m in LA thus ruining my plans of a sweet hotel stay in Hollywood (well, West Hollywood anyways).

 

So, that’s the scoop around here.  Not that you asked but as I’ve repeatedly pointed out, this IS MY BLOG and I can do whatever the hell I like here.  (Actually, I do whatever the hell I like wherever the hell I am now that I think about it)

 

The point of all this crap is that I have shit going down and I honestly don’t know how I’ll be keeping up with the posts, mostly because I don’t own a laptop.  I told Kevin to steal one from work for me somehow so I can have all my loyal readers, the many thousands of loyal readers I have, keep up with my mundane, yet incredibly interesting existence.

 

Jesus… I just read this post and it sucks.  I’m gonna post it anyways.  Don’t like it?  Feel free to let me know … or don’t … I’ll just ignore it.

    Well, the visit to the in-laws should provide plenty of material for your blog ;)

    I wonder why the kids (except Keely) don’t want to visit the grandparents? I guess they were not spoiled enough by the grandparents as little kids. My kids can’t WAIT to visit my mom in Germany. They call it “candy land” because my mom feeds them candy for breakfast, lunch and dinner!

      They’re just busy and there’s not all that much to do in Vermont.

    I read that super fast – I’m thinking that’s how you thought/wrote it too. hehe
    I’m sure it’ll be a source of some new shit to come up… or go down.

    I’ll ignore you now…………………..

    OK. I’m done.

    I quote, ‘If I could just REMEMBER all the awesome and amazing thoughts I had every single day’ … See, that’s what I like about you, Lynn: you don’t HUMBLEBRAG.
    You are extremely busy, though, and there’s a pattern involving still having to make reservations (again), or am I mistaken? I’d go nuts.

    :)

    Take mojitos and doritos, not the kiddos. If your in-laws are going to be busy anyway then it sounds like you might be getting a lot of this “Mom, I’m bored.” And that shit I cannot stand.

      Well, I’m taking one kid. They had fun when they were younger but now that they’re older, not so much. Plus there’s a family reunion. So we are leaving her behind.

    ‘Awesome and amazing thoughts’ ~ we have more in common every day! The next time Kevin is in Chicago tell him to check out the 27 foot high sculpture of Marilyn Monroe.

    Whether the trip will be fun or not for the one going…the memories will be cherished if not now, they will be in the years to come!

    Safe travels.
