The Sun Is Hot, The House Is Cool, And This Couch Is Awfully Comfy

It's been a true vacation week. I could write all the details, but I'm still in vacation mode and find myself rather uninterested in working that hard.

I know. I'm awesome.

So let's see. How about a nice little bulleted list? I love lists. And then you could tell me what you're most interested in hearing about in greater detail, and I could be all happy about getting comments (because you know I'm a comment whore, Peoples, and all the comments on my last post gave me warm fuzzies and that's a Good Thing), and then I'll just focus on what you'd like to read rather than giving you some long drawn out commentary on a whole week's worth of activities like some modern literary version of those slide shows people make guests sit through showing them standing in front of a hundred different poorly photographed landmarks from their latest vacation.

You're welcome.

Since last Friday, the following major events have occurred:
  • MTL and I drove north to his parents' place with all five kids and camped in their yard for over three days while sharing one kitchen and bathroom with eight other people (that makes fifteen total for the math challenged)
  • DramaBoy earned his first ever full day Time Out (a.k.a. You're grounded, boyo.)
  • I cohosted a hotel sleepover birthday party involving four thirteen- and fourteen-year-old girls with MTL's ex-wife
  • MTL and I had a lovely couple of days All By Ourselves over on the west side of the state in a lovely little harbor town called Saugatuck

It's been quite the week, Peoples.

At the moment we're relishing our final days on vacation without kids and without responsibilities. On Monday reality takes over again. MTL will head back to work, and I will get back into the sorting and tossing and donating and packing process as well. It's only three weeks until we move. Time, it has wings.

And now back to relaxing with My True Love.

7 bits of love:

ahhhh, the suspense is over! Thanks! I was dying over here!

Except for the bit about the day long time out, and the posse of teenagers, oh, and 15 people sharing a bathroom, it sounds blissful!

Jodie at Mummy Mayhem said...

15 people sharing a bathroom reminds me of school camp. *shudder*

Sounds like you had a good one though! :)

Melissa E. said...

Hmm. I want to hear more about the day long time out. That's a really long time out!

The camping out part sounds, um, fun. Were marshmallows involved?

PantsWithNames said...

Ooo, sounds lovely. A day long time out! I'm in awe!

Draft Queen said...

I miss you.

You had me at "time away without children in a harbor town." Glad you had a much-deserved vacation. We still have to figure out the book pick-up thing.
