The Best Laid Plans...

This is what my summer plans looked like: We had decided to go on a mighty adventure and take advantage of a job opportunity with Mr. Man. However, just as I had firmed up the logistics... everything fell through. And now my summer plans look like this...
Notice the lack of a pool* Ok... so it's not really where we will be living for the summer, we will be home at Chateau du la French. We are back to everything up in the air, but grateful for Mr. Man's current employment, and no has come down with the H1N1 virus (swine flu) so I am focusing on gratitude, not the lack of a pool* and an adventure.

On the flip side, Mr. Man is home for the rest of the month... which means another rockinWe've been doing the Staycation thing for years, we're trendsetters that way. Although, newsflash we are actually doing some traveling this time. We have a trip planned for each week, we are living on the wild side. First off is a little trip of amore with just Mr. Man & myself to an undisclosed location. There will be some serious lounging by the pool* and there will be foofy drinks with umbrellas. I can't wait to stretch out and have no responsibility for a few days. No one told me that you don't get time off from being a mom, unless you are somewhere sans children. Totally not fair.

*Mr. Man claims I've been wildly obsessed with putting in a pool since the summer plans fell through. I even hatched a plan with my trusty pal Cinnamon (yes, her real name) to "borrow" a pool by using a 3-150 foot extension cords and erecting some sort of bridge over a backyard or two. Mr. Man squashed that plan, something about trespassing and misdemeanors. Boo, he is no fun.

Random: Said farewell to another stroller this afternoon *sniff* but it looks like it went to a good home. Still have one more left going on eBay later this week, in case someone wants a double stroller that is Euro-fabulous.

Come to Renior. We have a lake and a pool and you can meet Reno's finest. ( I know you like the Reno 911)

I'm not kidding. Come to Reno. The drive is beautiful up 395.

That must be the *other* side of Redmond that I don't get to very often. It really looks serene over there.

I was SO excited for you and now I am deflated. I literally sighed in disappointment. I had no idea I was so excited for your adventure.

I'm sorry about the plans, Wendy. But it seems as though your sense of humor didn't fall through, too! ;)

Good luck finding a pool to crash this summer!
