What's Going to Happen

Okay, people. I'm going on vacation to a land with no internet. Otherwise known as Wisconsin.

Now, don't get any ideas about breaking into my home and stealing my piles of papers and stacks of children's books because my house sitter is a cop. (For real. How cool is that?)

I just wanted to give you fair warning that at some point in the near future I will be burdening you with extremely long posts about DRIVING to WISCONSIN with THREE KIDS and HOW ALEX AND I ARE THE DUMBEST PEOPLE KNOWN TO HUMANKIND and whatnot.

But until then, I offer you these dregs from my "drafts" folder. As well as some memes that I've been tagged for, like, months ago and never did. And some posts that I wrote special for you.

This is going to be some good reading, folks.

'Cause you know if those drafts didn't make it past my Stimeyland editorial staff when I wrote it, it's probably really good now. (Didn't you know that, like fine wine, mediocre writing improves with age?)

I'll also be going through all my BlogHer business cards when I get back from vacation. I absolutely can't do it before I leave, because I know I'll add subscriptions and I'm already overwhelmed by the thought of how many posts will be in my Google Reader when I get home. I may have to do some skimming. So don't do anything too important while I'm gone!

Cheers, and happy reading!


  1. I'll be anxious to hear how the drive goes. My brother lives in Madison. So far we've flown (once) but it's not cheap ... as you obviously know.

    Have fun once you're there!

  2. Ah, good luck. Enjoy. It's supposed to be fun, remember.

  3. Have a good time! We drove 40 total hours for our vacation last month, with two kids. As long as we stopped every 3 hours and bought gas-station crap, it was really uneventful! Didn't even have to overly use the laptop to play movies! Renting the minivan (so the boys could be in different sections of the vehicle) was worth every SINGLE penny.

  4. Have a great time! Can't wait to hear all about it.

  5. I live in Illinois. People from Illinois go to Wisconsin to fish and camp and things like that. I hope you've found something really great to do there that makes no internet worth it. I really do.
    Y'know - Packer fans live there.
    Just sayin'.

  6. Lots of great stuff between here and Wisconsin (from a woman who has made the drive on several occasions!) Hope you put in plenty of time and have fun!!!

    Maybe I should blog about "stuff to do in the car"?

  7. Love you, miss you already.

  8. Dude, I totally wrote a 'not so best of' Manic Mommy post a few months back. It was filled with half-baked drafts and 'woudn't it be funny if I wrote about..."

    But I never drove that far with my kids! God speed, Stimies!

  9. The car? To Wisconsin? You have a very strong marriage.

  10. No internet? In Wisconsin? Whose cottage are you at?
