"Down the Drain With Jane"
Wednesday, August 13, 2008 • Posted August 13, 2008

When you read this, I’ll be in sunny, HOT/HUMID Florida. Yep, taking a well earned vacation????? A,”Well Earned” vacation! So, what did I do to earn the stress of getting everything ready to go on vacation for!

Getting everything done, so you can go on a vacation isn’t all that pleasant. You don’t want to leave a dirty house to come home to. So you spend a lot of time just cleaning and re-cleaning! Then you have to make sure the animals are going to be well cared for. You’ve got to see that there is enough food and pee/poop pads to last your stay. There is a matter of making sure the bills are paid, so nothing gets disconnected while you’re away.

So, if this is “Well Earned,” I’d hate to see what a well earned vacation isn’t! But, I’m anxious to see my baby boy and his wife and their new puppy dog. So, the stress is just a small price to pay. Z doesn’t like going into parts that don’t sell his brand of beer and where they wear short britches and sandals. He prefers boots-bibs-jeans and John Deere caps. So, he’ll be staying home, to let me wing this vacation with three grandkids all by myself. Thus, showing Z how to change the poop/pee pad for little Pearl dog and seeing the look on his face, told me the pads may or may not get changed! So my backup is Marilyn with the puppies, but Z’s on his own if and when he runs out of clean drawers! You might want to keep a safe distance from him come Thursday or Friday of this week. He may be smelling a little on the rank side!

P.S. I’ll not be lying on the beach, sunbathing! They’d yell, “HELP SAVE THE WHITE WHALE THAT’S BEACHED!”
