I’m Not That Important

OK, here’s the scoop:

I’m going to unplug (sort of) for a few days because we’re going camping. Tent camping. It’s a two-roomer, so don’t feel too badly for us. Unless it rains, and then please feel really, REALLY badly for us in our two-room tent with three bored children.

I say “I’m going to unplug (sort of)” because Fairly Odd Father is bringing his laptop, so the temptation will be great. He is bringing his laptop because the kind folks at his school decided that, although this is his measly two-week break from the MBA program, they had to give an assignment due Monday night. Yes, MONDAY night, as in the night of Labor Day. Technically, I guess in Business-School-Land, the night of Labor Day is not a holiday anymore since you’ve probably already shut off the grill and put the kids to bed.

My deal is that I will not check the internet until Wednesday. And then, I will not check again until Friday, when we return home.

So, Internet, do not do anything too exciting while I’m gone. There will be no guest posters because, well, go see the title of this post.

And, if you really need me, just follow the smell of burned-black marshmallows. It’s the only way I’ll eat them.


  1. B School can really suck like that sometimes. Been there, done that. Blech.

    Have a great time, build lots of memories, burn lots of marshmellows, etc. See you when you get back.

  2. We will not do anything blog-worthy until next week. Deal? Enjoy!!!

  3. I promise that I will attempt to lead a life of calm and eventless dullness while you are gone.

  4. Have a good time, and I’ll be doing my anti-rain dance just for you. (I’m fairly certain if you could SEE me doing the dance you’d have a GREAT time … laughing at my expense, of course.)

  5. oops, Sorry, I went and did something exciting for you while you were gone. Come check it out when you’re back and scratching all your mosquito bites in front of the computer. Have a good break!

    I just want to tell you how much I adore you for NOT have guest posters. (Shhh…I don’t really like guest posts and I rarely read them.)

    Hope you’re having a wonderful, mostly unplugged time!

  7. Enjoy your time away, but then come back and post because I JUST discovered you and I want to read more!
