A Break on the Lake

Just a little head's up—I'm going to be MIA on the blog for the rest of the week.  Why, you ask?  Because I'll be houseboating on Lake Powell.  Cell reception out there is spotty, let alone Internet access, so I'll be letting the blog run itself until I come back.  You won't even notice, unless you try to email me or comment on one of my posts.  Never fear!  I'll only be gone a few days and then I'll return emails and approve comments.  In the meantime, I'm going to be playing with my kids, stargazing with my husband, speeding across the water on my jet ski, and, of course, enjoying some nice, relaxing reading time.

That is, of course, if I can find Lake Powell.  My husband's already on the lake with my sons and a group of other guys, so I'm going to have to drive there myself.  I've made the trip plenty of times, just not from behind the wheel.  Here's hoping Mapquest knows what it's talking about!  Seriously, I'm not all that worried, but apparently my daughters are—the 3-year-old just said, "But, Mommy, we can't drive without Daddy!"  Oh, we can, baby girl, and we will.  I hope.

How 'bout the rest of y'all?  Any fun plans for the week/weekend?  Whatever you're doing, have a great rest-of-the-week.  I'll catch you when I get back.  'Til then, happy reading!


  1. Oh, lucky you. We went camping this past weekend (4 days) and it was so hard to come home! Have a great time!

  2. Have fun! It's getting a bit colder at night lately so I hope it's not too cold. The days are still great, though!


Comments make me feel special, so go crazy! Just keep it clean and civil. Feel free to speak your mind (I always do), but be aware that I will delete any offensive comments.

P.S.: Don't panic if your comment doesn't show up right away. I have to approve each one before it posts to prevent spam. It's annoying, but it works!
