Sorry, folks. Park’s closed. The moose out front shoulda told ya.*

So we’re headed out on a little opportunity to chase two boys in new and different places vacation tomorrow, and all I can say is that it would be a whole lot simpler to just hitch our house to the back of the car, for all the things I am packing. And, bonus, it would mean I wouldn’t have to clean for the housesitter.

But the worst part of the packing? It has been so delightfully warm all fall so far, and I know it will get cooler while we are away, esp. since we are going north, and my god, WHAT IF I DON’T BRING ENOUGH FLEECE FOR EVERYONE? Because I know emergency fleece is hard to come by in MAINE. And VERMONT.

So if you see a car on the highway with fleece jackets crammed into every corner, oh and TOWING A HOUSE, wave and say hello.

And readers, not to worryβ€”I have left you in extraordinarily capable hands. You have a wide array of fascinating guest bloggers coming your way over the next week, and I know you’ll enjoy them.

*You HAVE seen National Lampoon’s Vacation, yes?

    Dude, I feel you on the packing. Especially with the kids. It’s always the little ones that get me. Which is odd, because shouldn’t they have smaller stuff? Since they are smaller? Yes?
