We spent our 4th of July cleaning, doing laundry and packing just about everything we own to go on an extended vacation. I left a lot of work sort of just...hanging, so I'll have to drink a lot in order to be able to relax as much as I planned.
Usually Kate is forced, greatly against her will, to "nap" for an hour in the extremely uninteresting guest room but that was my packing staging area so she had to lie down in our room. I got her settled in and then took off for the mall (I had to go pick up my new iPod. The battery died right before vacation. They don't replace those, they just make you buy a whole new iPod, only you pay way less for it. The people who ring you up for this item have the job title of "Genius". I used to think "controller" was the best job title there is, but now I've changed my mind. Jeremiah went to the mall before to meet with the geniuses about my sad iPod. While he was there a guy who'd just obtained his iPhone was so involved in the prettiness of it that he walked right into the glass wall of the store at full speed, like some dumbass bird running into a picture window.) When Jeremiah went in to get Kate out of the bed, after the egg timer we set for her went off, he discovered her lounging on the bed, legs up and crossed, reading his Playboy. I can't believe he didn't have the camera handy.
So we're off. If I don't post for 10 days just know this, I'll have a TON of crap to post when we get back!
