Seven Days

(Image filched from the Colossus)

Seven days to go until my vacation, that is, and man oh man do I need it this year. I won't bore you with all the details, but I simply can't remember the last time I was this utterly wiped.

So, a donde vas, Roberto? Well, as is usually the case, we'll be making our way up to Maine to visit the 'rents. The added bonus this year is that both my brother and sister and their families will be there as well. Lots of Geary's and lobstah, a visit or two to my favorite out of the way beach, perhaps a trip to the Children's Museum in Portland if the Llama-ettes behave themselves, and - most importantly - a whooooole lot of time just sitting on the porch, staring idly at the bay and doing absolutely nothing.

Few days of this and I feel I will get my strength back. And remember some of those little things, like how to smile or the fact that I'm married.

In the meantime, I feel like a pilot coming in for a landing skosh fuel. If nothing untoward happens, I'll just be able to ghost over the perimeter fence and put her down. Otherwise, Robbo prangs the kite. Keep your fingers crossed that it's going to be quiet for the next seven days.

Oooh, sounds like a lovely time to be had by all.

I've got my fingers AND toes crossed for ya! Though it does affect my writing and walking somewhat .... I did decide not to cross my eyes as well after I had that meeting with the wall. ;-D

One of my favorite P-shops of you. Mrs. C. and I might be up there in a few weeks time ourselves.

Got my fingers crossed that the next weeks is uneventful and that you have a restful time on vacation!

Well you can prang your kite. Just make sure you don't hairy blighter, dicky-bird, feather back on your sammy, take a waspy, flip over on your Betty Harpers or catch your can in the Bertie... 'Kay?

Seriously, enjoy the well-deserved break. Oddly, my kids will be returning to school that week that you're on vacation.
