Summer Vacation Checklist

1. Kids nagging to go to the pool already .... check

2. Mom losing her mind .... check

3. Mom finds out that a really awesome, wonderful, kind, considerate and kick-a$$ friend, who is just as mired in the 1980s as Mom, is moving away soon, probably within a month .... check

4. MIL already nagging for us to figure out a time when we can make a trip down to the backwoods of KY where there is NOTHING for my kids to do ... not even enough room to look around outside without Mom's fear that one or all of the kids will roll down the hill of he** .... check

5. Need to look into a Rx for valium for # 4 .... not done yet

6. Child who ran around all day yesterday outside on her aunt's five plus acres of land up at the crack-a$$ of dawn just to show her mother that there is a green stain on her now favorite hoochie mama white tanktop with silver sequins purchased by her nana .... check

I'm laughing my butt off (the hill of he**)...not because I'm leaving (crying about that) but seriously let's talk about hills...LOTS of them in Ashland, KY. Not loving that. No more wide open flat places for children to roam and ride bikes.

hoochie mama it

Aww, I'm sorry your friend is moving away. Thank goodness for the Internet, huh? She'll be able to help keep you sane long distance, but admittedly it is not quite the same.

I remember that post about those stairs. They made my legs ache just looking at them. Ugh.

OMG. I so thought you were going to say that your daughter was covered in ticks after running around. But, I don't think they have ticks much in Ohio, do they? Heck, they barely have them downstate. Woodticks, reason number 874119273186541 why I want to move.

good luck with #5. I was cleaning out my bathroom cabinet and found a very old RX for some hydrocodone. Could I mail it to you? It just might help.

Jenn... ANY medication would help, I think.
