Lord, have mercy!

Those trials are difficult, I well know.

This year, my older dd is working for the first time, so I will stay with her in the city during the week,and then on some weekends, will drive her out to camp with the rest of the family. My poor dh will have the two squabbling children (15 and 13 by then) to deal with on his car trips!

Kate, you have my sympathy! I ahve "been there, done that" traveling with a 19, 11 and 3 yr old! Now it is just one 43 yr old mentally challenged 43 yr (13) yr old and this weekend we get a break as she has gone to Branson MO with a group. They will be home Sun about 6 PM. Just pray - it does get better
Hugs,
Gloria

Having our adult daughter as a companion on a cross country drive from Carlsbad NM to just outside of Chicago is great. But, it's not much of a vacation when you add in a monosylabic 13 year old girl, a bored 10 year old boy and a 3.5 year old very busy and loud girl who is like oil with water concerning her brother! And, we even voluntarily took them to a museum today?
My DH's dad had major surgery last week, and number one son needed to see him. Daughter hasn't seen her grandpa in 5 years. So, we made it here, but my daughter wishes we could send a next day FedEx package with one 3 year old for the return. :)
Please pray we survive one another! I truly do love them. We took the 10 year old to the hotel where DH and I are staying to get him away from his sisters. We're splitting up tomorrow, which should help. Lord, have mercy!

CJ, are you really old enough to have kids going to University?

Wishing you all a fabulous time, wherever your vacations may (or may not!) take you!

That sounds like a lovely break, though, Christi, despite the quietness of it, and no train ride.

I would like to take a train ride as well, but the budget does not allow this year. My dd graduates next year, and then it is off to university for her!

I'm off the middle week of June, but have no plans to travel. Fresh air, sunlight, exercise and some good reading are on the menu. Sure wish I was taking a train to Colorado!

It is crazy we have lived here for 26 years and never ridden the train. So it will be great! Gotta love Colorado!

No vacation for me in June after all. My dh and I were hoping to sneak away during his busiest month (we are both in education, but he is a teaching vice principal, so June is this busiest time of year). However, it now looks like it will not be possible to do that.

We get out June 30th, though, so will go camping for a few weekends during the summer, and sort and clean the house/yard the rest of the time.

I love that train ride! It's bee a few years since we've done that. Our daughter goes for a weekend trip the 24 - 26th of this month, but I think we will go in July for hubby's class reunion in Colo Spgs.

No vacation planned for this year, already had to go to San Antonio for my sister-in-law's funeral, our son is getting married in Dolores, CO on June 18, family will be here so we are planning on riding the Durango/Silverton train and maybe some camping and fishing after the wedding for a few days. Hopefully some camping trips around our beautiful area. With the price of fuel we can't afford to venture too far from home. : (

A short weekend trip to Chicago on the Amtrac!! Her condo is minutes from the train station and it beats paying for parking, which is $36.00 a day!!! We can't wait!!

Barbara .....that's what my friends call me! Never cared for the name Barb.

No vacation this year. :( Especially not in June! School is out on Thursday, but we have a grill-out at TSC on Saturday and our banquet Saturday night. Then, we run a foodbooth (my FFA chapter) at the fair, so I have to get all of our food ordered! Fair is June 22-27, and then I have ag teachers conference from June 27 to the 30! BUSY month!

Nothing much except to go to a Fiber Festival. There I'll be selling llama fiber, taking my first knitting class and enjoying a glass of beer or wine while the musicians perform. I guess that's a vacation from what I'm used to.
