Last Wednesday Sean and I loaded up our van, threw in the kids and headed up towards Ottawa. This was the second year in a row that we made the trek to visit Sean’s family at their cottage/home on Mississippi Lake.
This happened last year.
This year I was pissed.
I found this cooler bag at Winners and I loved it so much that I bought one for Cuyler’s teacher as a year end gift.
(And you know that because I got it at Winners, I will never find another one like it)
Sean knows how much I love the bag and – bless him – he insisted we keep it so he could duct tape it and make it good as new (ew).
It still bugs me. God I loved that bag…It’s just a bag and I know better than to sweat the small stuff. I wasn’t going to let my wrecked bag ruin my getaway.
Fun and fresh air had them crashed out cold by 9:30 each night.We got home on the weekend and as I unpacked the van I realized that there is only two more weeks left of summer vacation! We’re almost there people – almost there!
I can’t think of a better way to start the wind down than they way we did.
(With the exception of my damn cooler bag…)
