Booking A Texting Vacation...

I dreamed about this last night. Although this happened LAST May...

A slightly harassed Lemon Stand attempting to make recent vacation plans being made via text (welcome to the 21st century) with Husband:

LS, "The kids want to know if we can go to Cape Cod for a week?"

Husband, "??"

LS, "You said something about the possibility of a military reservation? Oh, and I also made arrangements with Beth at the Oil company for the remaining heating bill."

Husband, "It's called Cliff and was she cool?"

LS, "I don't know if she had her air conditioner on or possibly took my call whilst standing in a meat locker, but she WAS very nice about it."

Husband, "She's like that."

LS, "What is Cliff and can I jump off it right now?"

Husband, "Only if I can push."

LS, "By the time you push, I'll already have jumped... so remember what happens to the lemmings..."

Husband, "If you jump, that would remove most of my reasons for following."

LS:  :(

LS, "Well then... start imagining a future without me being an anchor around your neck... 

LS, "We all need to have dreams..."

Husband, "Keep dreaming.  We don't have any high buildings in our piece of 'the middle of nowhere.'"

LS, "Hence the girls request for a Cape Cod vacation."

Husband, "Ah, no."

LS, "No vacation?"

Husband, "No lemming impersonations."

  1. Been wandering in the world of craft and design blogs wondering where the humor was, put in the name of the 'goddess' of housewife humor (Saint Erma Bombeck) and landed here. Happy to follow you - come by and say hello at DearHelenHartman.com sometime!

  2. I am so glad to see you back! I know I'm a few days behind, I've been out of action for a very short while and plan to continue that but have been checking in here. I even broke my temporary boycott of email to say we miss you. :p Good to "see" you again.

  3. Dear Helen - I LOVE to quilt and sew so when I get a break from the chaos that is our life at the moment, I will DEFINITELY come say hi!

    Amber! I just want you to know that I have NOT forgotten your MEME. ;) I even have it partially done. (thank you for your thoughts. sincerely.)

  4. I'm thrilled to see your back blogging again! I've missed you.

    And, I'm cracking up at your conversation with the husband.
