In the plane on our way to Vegas. Was going to post about that BUT this new blogger interface has pissed me off!
You know how I have my signature at the bottom of the page? It takes me forever to get it moved down so I can even begin to write a post! Not happy. Not happy at all, and a not happy Diva makes for a not happy time!
Why does damned thing have to change? It wasn't broken so leave it the heck alone. Geesh!
Anyway back to the trip I guess. I really don't have much to say, for me that's kind of rare, but today it's true.
I decided I needed a refresher on my rules and checkpoints for leaving my kids alone in the house for a week so I re-read my post "Before You Pack That Luggage." Since I can't figure out how to link to it with this new interface I'm just going to re-post the handy tips here.
Ready, Set. Go.
Always inform neighbors and give them written permission to call police. Drop hints of this in casual conversation with kids.
Count number of children and pets before leaving.
Note mileage, gas level and radio station of the parental vehicles.
Always take note of the level of garbage (and recycle) in the outside can(s) before leaving and upon return. If there’s less when you return you can be certain that someone has some 'splainin' to do.
Give kids your itinerary showing you'll return one day later than you actually will.
Be sure to leave emergency money/credit card and check receipts against change/statements.
Hide all duct tape and rope.
Well that's my list. I may or may not post while I'm there, but I'll try to at least post some pictures. Sun, pool. alcohol and gambling......I'm ready.
Hasta la vista!
