We Interrupt This Regularly Scheduled Program

Picture from The Parent Trap circa 1961

to pack for camp!

Very busy this week packing for sleep-away camp. First time for both boys and both are excited and a wee bit nervous. Probably not as nervous as my husband. I bet he's called me ten times to make sure I pack the appropriate items. I would say he would be the parent that they are describing in this article.

The blankets and small stuffed animals went into their sleeping bags this afternoon (to be hugged and held at night...yeah who am I kidding, they will probably come home a muddy mess!) and clothes and necessities are being labeled. I have no doubts that they will have a wonderful time...
Now if I could only figure out what to talk about with my husband for a whole week!

Oh, that sounds heavenly. The boys will have a great time and you and the husband will find ways to reconnect, I'm sure.

Here's something to ponder: if an article of clothing falls in the laundry basket and there's no one around to hear it, does it make a sound?

Enjoy your week off!

The Parent Trap...one of my all time favorites growing up. How fun for your boys going to camp, have a great week to yourself :)

The packing was soooooo stressful... but if it helps any, I think my daughter wore the same piece of clothing ALL WEEK LONG. Oddly, everything still had to be washed. And then thrown out. You have never seen anything/anyone so dirty...

Enjoy your week!

Thanks all! It's pretty quiet around here. Not sure if I like it.
Leslie...we have been out to dinner twice already! I'm going to be HUGE by the end of the week. Too bad you're not closer...we would have a fabulous time!
