Interesting Tidbits on the Web:



Boy! We just got back from a long weekend trip to a cabin in Northern Vermont. We went with several of our friends and their families and while it was a beautiful location and it was fun to see everyone, it was unbelievably exhausting (apparently I am the perfect person to pawn toddlers off on even though I was looking to get some momma down time too). I got very little reading done while there as a result of having 5 kids under the age of 5 to monitor and 4 dogs as well. Upon returning home we picked up our own dog, Niko (he isn't good with other dogs so couldn't come along) only to find out he had been sprayed by a skunk! UGH! There is nothing worse, I swear!

Anyway, I plan on just cleaning up after all these adventures this week and then diving back into my books for a while before the crazy month of August kicks off my super busy time of year!


  1. Oh man! A cabin vacation should be relaxing! I'm so sorry you got roped into babysitting.

    1. It really was kind of a bummer, I was so looking forward to being able to hang out with everyone and relax. I told Hubby that I plan on doing nothing this weekend but sitting in the sun and reading to make up for it!
