Hope and Dum-Dums are all we got



Stress, excitement, anticipation, and STRESS.

What a freakin’ day! Holy cow.

I’m watching all these elementary kids run out of the building like maniacs with small brains (well, seriously, their brains are actually, physically small). Everyone is happy that it is Spring Break.

Now, at the end of this tiring day, I will pick up my own maniac-with-a-small-brain (and my husband), and off we will go, driving for many hours to begin our own Spring Break trip (you know, because we’re stupid).

I will still be around these here parts, checking in on blog land.

There is an EXCITING THING happening here on THURSDAY, so you’ll definitely want to come visit for that!

Well, here we go. We have as many hand-held electrical devices that we could afford and procure to make this long car drive bearable. Beyond that, hope and Dum-Dums are all we got.

Spring break already? Wow. That must mean we are well and truly in autumn then (sigh). Don't get me wrong, I love autumn, I just don't like the downhill slide to winter.
Enjoy the spring!!

Happy SITS day! I know what you mean about handheld devices. We have a DVD player in our minivan, so I always rent one Netflix movie and as many other kids' movies as I can from the library before heading on a trip with my stepdaughter.

divinepainter said...

I think you're right on about the approach... all successful blogs are a combo of "me too!" and "what a genius!" Visiting from SITS. Great work!
