3. Say, "everyone ready?"
4. Go for gas.
5 . Go home so hubby can get sunglasses.
6. Be relieved you are back because back door is open.
7.Go in house for dog toys, and pencil.
8. Go back to car.
9. Go back to get bag of beverages.
12. Go back to car.
13. Ask, "Does everybody have everything, really??"
15. Go 10 miles.
16. Give Hubby dirty look when he says, "I forgot the dog crate."
17. Decide to buy a new beeping crate on the road since the one you
have is big and heavy and 10 freaking miles away.

    This is hilarious, and wayyyyyyy too familiar!

  2. I laughed when I read this. Absolutely way too familiar!


  3. Heh. Sounds about right to me. Aaah, roadtrips. Just finished one this week (Austin to El Paso to Houston to Dallas to Austin) and leave for another (Austin to Minneapolis) in a few days. I see the center line of the highway in my dreams...

  4. I can totally relate! Have a wonderful vacation!!

    Two other off-topic comments: 1) I'm giving you an award in my post Monday. 2) I did not get a response from you way back when I sent an email asking to be allowed in the Private Blog. Did you get it?

  5. Happy Vacation!!

    We had to adopt a rule of if we let it we either don't need it or we can get a new one or live without it. So far it has really cut down on lots of return trips.

    Hope everyone has fun. Did Andrew go to see the horses?

  6. Oh my, what a nice way to start a day, with a great laugh. Sounds just like our house!
