vacation, wooooo hoooooo

okay, should fancies of blue waters, tropical drinks or swaying palms be entering your head- please go there and do not read on...



today is tuesday . one day into a weeklong 'vacation' and I am in a near panic because IKEA's kids room is closed on tuesdays and thank GOD! i checked before we drove an hour to find out in person. but now i am stuck. I was dreaming about ikea last night and leaving the three year old in the playland while i browsed... I've got no money AND am short on energy-burning ideas that don't require my thirtyfour year old self to climb swingsets and junglegyms to retrieve said three year old. but I am willing to drive . and shop and eat. so , what to do...



I've got this assignment from chakra carol that I'm supposed to be working on - those CDs -
and I've got to send her a letter to explain why I can't go any further. Of course, a personal failing. I cannot be a person of love and light for the world, evidently. My sister was driving with me this weekend as we made a mad dash to Maine to visit my grandmother, thinking it was a 'last time' . My sister tried to get me to look a little bit more at that assertion, which is precisely what the CDs try to do. SO- I'm going to make a little detour from the cleaning cleaning cleaning futility, and look at the damn things again. I'd prefer to go to IKEA and use my credit card to pretend everything was just glorious and full of 'clean lines'...

'clean lines' laundry lines

GOD BLESS THE SWEDES

Ooooh, I need an IKEA break with no children too. Do you think if I leave them in the children's section some kind European wanna-be will take care of them until I return from gorging myself on cinnamon buns in the cafe? I'm seriously considering it.

HEY ! yes, those wacky europeans always care for stray children.... they want them OUT of the cities during bombing raids and everything...
