Random Time of Year

I am filled with a deep and abiding hatred of all things Metro today. That outrageously mismanaged system combined with oppressive heat and clueless tourists has made for many miserable commutes this week.

I am still trying to stay positive. See, pretty flowers! That's a happy thing.


I am also feeling really random. It's that time of the summer.

Last night DQ went to see Eclipse again. It was her 3rd time. Surely she'll get tired of it soon. Right?

Well, I hope that she's had her fill because she and Stinkette leave for camp shortly and they won't be seeing any movies while they're there. We already shipped 3 large boxes filled with clothes, linens and other essential stuff to camp.

Any bets on how long it'll take for them to start sending me notes requesting stuff they forgot at home? last year I think the first one was sent out hours after I dropped them off. I wish I was kidding.

Tomorrow after work we'll hit the road. We are taking a brief detour on our way to camp. I'll tell you where when I return. I really love road trips with my girls. We laugh and explore and enjoy our time together all while seeing somewhere new. Brilliant!

Good thing we're not detouring to the beach. Stinkette has swimmers ear and can't go in the pool (or I expect, the ocean) until monday at the earliest. She's in a bit of pain right now but it's getting better. By the time I drop her off at camp she should be in pretty good shape.

That is a fantastic picture - I really love it. I know how you always look forward to this trip to camp. Drive carefully and have fun!

Those are pretty flowers! I can only imagine the havoc tourists add to the Metro. Hopefully the break to take the kids to camp will reduce the hatred a tad.
