Well, That Was Fun...*eyeroll*

We just got back from a "getaway" at our weekend house and it was NOT fun!! Let's see... (If there's no time to read just note red highlights. )

First, I made the mistake of not putting Pickle down for her morning nap, thinking she would sleep in the car on the way there. That didn't work...apparently she got overtired to the point where she was beyond sleep and all she could do was scream. Not cry--SCREAM. At the top of her lungs and for a solid hour at least. That was inevitably followed by throwing up all over the car after which she fell asleep for the remaining 20 minutes of the drive--so we had to wake her up almost immediately.

Upon arriving at the house we noticed right away that our normally sparkling clean pool looked like something this:
might emerge from. It was dirty (like OPAQUE!) and full of leaves and other crap. Did I mention the dead chipmunk in the skimmer basket? yeah--that was pretty!

A few minutes later, Don walked, trance-like, into the kitchen and said he's forgotton his suitcase.

Then the torrential rains started...and pretty much never stopped for the rest of the trip.

Let's see...some other "high"lights...

-the air conditioning stopped working.
-the cable tv stopped working.
-the dvd player stopped working.
-the baby continued to vomit in the car, in the crib and just about everywhere else. (She's just a little sick, but I think the small amount of congestion she has keeps triggering her gag reflex so the floodgates opened everytime she cleared her throat.)
-there were two more dead chipmunks in the pool over the next two days.

I'm sure there's even more that I'm blocking out!
We usually have an amazing trip every time we go--so hopefully this was just a fluke and we've gotten the bad luck stuff out of the way so we can have a great time the rest of the summer!
