Do you have memories of being picked up still mostly asleep being carried to the car? Do you remember asking if you are there yet? Do you remember the little floating device that was relied on by parents who couldn't really swim very well?
Do you remember asking . . .did you bring my flip flops and beach towel? Did you bring my crayons, and coloring book?
Those were the good old days. I wonder who cleaned the house top to bottom before we left? That would have been my mom. Who packed the car up and the trunk with all the gear? That would have been my mom. We were remembering as a family a few days ago how until I was married our family home never had locks on the doors? Imagine that. Now we have locks and alarms and dogs and house sitters and farm sitters . . . .good grief.
I'm away on assignment for a bit, (smile) and when I return I'll be anxious to visit you all and see what I've missed. Our house sitters offered to keep you abreast of the going's on around here and it was a tempting thought but with these people you really never know what they will consider humorous and so I think I'll keep my password under wraps for now.
Okay I'm off to clean the house and wash the sheets . . . .woohoo.
