It seems like lately all I do is play catch up! Laundry, housework, blogging, the DVR…repeat. Although I am so far behind in the DVRed shows that I still haven’t finished the most recent season of “The Following” and it ended months ago.
It doesn’t help that I have been on 2 camping trips in the past month either. I think I was still playing catch up from the first one when we ventured into the second. And ventured we did.
This trip started out fine and then my father caught a “puking” bug which then passed through every one of my toddlers at different intervals. One being in the middle of lunch at the “Olive Garden“. Luckily I had come prepared with a grocery bag in my purse in case the toddler from the night before decided to
blow chunks like the exorcist had a repeat vomiting appearance. The first toddler got sick in the middle of the night and managed to at least make half of it into the toilet in the camper.
The final puking episode came yesterday on our voyage home. And to round the lovely trip up to a glorified completion would be mommy getting pulled over doing 96mph in a 70mph zone. I swear I had no clue I was going that fast until I saw the cop and thought to myself “wow, that’s the first cop I’ve seen today…wait why is he turning his lights on and turning around???…oh shit that’s because I am going 96mph”. **applies break and pulls over** I had trailed behind my husband, who was pulling the camper… all day…UNDER the speed limit, and the one time I speed ahead because I had to pee….I get pulled over! Really?! On the lighter side of that the nice highway patrolman at least lowered the price of my ticket from a whopping $700 to a mere $200. Still not what I want to spend $200 on but it is what it is.
And so now I play catch up. There’s at least 20 loads of laundry that need tended to…my blog commenting has been majorly neglected and with that I apologize to everyone.
Somewhere I have lost my linking up list…probably lurking in the piles of laundry…and without it…I am lost.
And I am sorry.
Please excuse my absence this week as I try my best to get caught up, possibly get a couple new posts written, get my house in somewhat of order, and
blow up call my internet provider to see if perhaps there is a reason as to why it takes me 20 minutes for a page to load. I mean seriously…how long has internet been around now and this is the best there is in rural Nevada?
Whining her way to bedtime,
