Unpack, wash, repack… fun!

May 31, 2006

The one thing I do NOT like about traveling?  Packing and unpacking, especially when I have to do it more than once a week.  Today was laundry day, had to clean everything from this past weekend (plus the new goodies I picked up today) so that tomorrow I can repack for our Ohio trip.  Not bad, just one load left (gentles, nice small load) and then some towels, but they don’t count since I can leave ’em in the dryer until we get back.

Toothbrush1_1Took the littles summer shopping today at the Gettysberg Outlets.    Did pretty good.  Surprisingly not too well at Children’s Place where I usually clean up, but really good at Old Navy.  Got a few skirts and shirts for me (much easier to fit than shorts) and lots of goodies for the kids.  Even brought home shorts and a tee for Vince (but he says he doesn’t want a "Vote for Pedro" transfer on his).  Picked up outfits for the boys for Eric’s wedding in July (already have two dressDrowninganant_2es for the girl to choose from).  They’re gonna look SHARP!

Here’s one for ya, we’re driving up to PA and Evan says, "Do you know what dripwood is Mommy?"  "Um, no," I say.  "It’s wood that drips!"  I’m thinking he was really talking about driftwood, but it was news to Finger2me anyways.

Evan provided much entertainment this evening.   He was out "watering" and decided to drown an ant.  Nice, very nice.  Whose kids are these?  Anyone?

Oh and then there’s Andrew, I do not want to know where this finger was a minute before the picture…

Wait here’s another… We’re playing out on the front yard and Evan sees a bug May25_038slithering across the ground.  Since all bugs are his friends he stoops down to play with it.  "Ouch," he says, "HE PINCHED ME!" It was a centipede (and yes they can pinch).  But where’s the funny part you ask.  Well… we asked him where he got pinched.  It was right here.

Well, that’s it for today.  So how are you liking the pics from the new lens.  Me likey!  Vince asked what I’ll do when I have to bring it back.  My response?  "I’ll Cry!"
