I’m on vacation this week. A real vacation.
Daycare is closed and summer vacation camp is coming to an end. So we’re heading downeast.
Down east in Maine is as eastern as you can get in the United States. We’ll be camping – real camping, in a tent – close to the Canadian border. It’ll be me, my husband, two boys and two dogs. Did I mention we’ll be in a tent? (Sadly, our oldest dog has to stay back due to some of his health issues. He’ll be staying with our good friends. Don’t tell him we’re camping. He loves camping!)
Because I’m not sure we’ll have cell service, let alone any internet connection where we’ll be, I’m scheduling all my posts out ahead of time. I’m planning on being pretty much off the grid for the week. If I have any sort of connection, I may post a picture or two on social media. We’ll see.
Since I won’t be very interactive online this week, I scheduled a couple of guest posts from some awesome bloggers. On Tuesday, Lynn from Writing the Waves….Again will be entertaining you with her observations on parenting by Gen-Xers. On Friday, I have Elizabeth Atalay from Documama (and a fellow Global Team of 200 member) taking over for Philanthropy Friday. I have another great Maine photo ready for you for Wordless Wednesday. (Side note: I did not use a filter for Wednesday’s photo. I happened upon the perfect lighting.)
I thought I would include a couple of posts from my guest bloggers as an introduction to Lynn and Elizabeth’s writing:
- To my Postpartum Self: What I Wish I had Known from Writing the Waves…Again
- Inspiring Women: Navyn Salem from Documama
Please make them feel at home this week!
I leave you with a vacation haiku I wrote in my head while at a chiropractor appointment:
Downeast Maine camping
With 2 kids, 2 dogs and hubs
Beer and wine are packed
Oh, and I have a house sitter. So don’t be thinking you can up and rob my house while I’m gone.
