1. Going in for some needed hairapy.
All I’m sayin’ is that Mr. CPQ better close some deals today.
2. Doing laundry.
Because we’ll be on the road for four days before getting to my mama’s house and her washing machine.
3. Scouting for some fun things to take with us for the road. I checked some books out of the library as well as bought some Mad Libs off the $1 rack at Borders to protect my sanity for the children to read while we’re riding in the car later this week.
Now I need YOU, Dear Reader, to tell me some fun things you pack for car rides to keep everyone generally uncranky. Yes, we have a DVD system in the car and three sets of headphones, but my rule for long drives is that the mornings are spent without TV, so that’s a four to five hour chunk o’ time we need to be occupied doing something other than picking at our siblings.
Please give me your best ideas.
After eight years of doing this, I need some fresh ones.
Have a nice day, and Happy September.
