Writer's Block: Three-day weekend

Do you prefer to spend a three-day weekend chilling at home or hitting the road?


I don't mean to sound boring, but at this particular point in my life, chilling at home is a whole lot easier.

Here's what it looks like when a big family goes on a three-day road trip...

LOL! With our youngest three, we used to go camping. Each child was allowed to bring whatever would fit in their school backpack. We had a two room tent,Dad's toolbox for setup, two tarps, 5 cots, mattress pads, sleeping bags, pillows, cookstove, lantern, dining screenhouse, large cooler and at least one bag of groceries. My van was loaded to the gills!

I give my hubby a big part of the credit. I'm the one who made out and checked off lists of all that had to be packed, but my husband had to figure how to get it all in to the car!! We usually took out the middle seat of the van, put mats, unrolled sleeping bags and pillows on the back seat for the kids to sit on, then everything else before and behind the rear seat.

Well yes, but then my hubby has to watch his sports on TV, I have to do all my usual chores and the kids are BORED.

Better to be out in the woods, kids swimming, Dad cooking, me getting some actual rest!!

You do know, of course, that one of those suitcases is filled with nothing but your shoes.
