I'm actually not here

Wanna know a secret? I'm actually not here. I'm using that incredibly freeing service that blogger now offers in which you can write posts ahead of time and designate publishing your post...in the future. What a concept! It is, by far, my favorite blogger trick. Well, other than the spell check. When it works...

We've gone off to my mom's in northern California to celebrate her 70th birthday. I'm looking forward to getting away and visiting with family. The kids love their time with Ma'Mai and Pops. They are very excited. Every day for the last week BOY has been asking, "Is today the day we are going to Ma'Mai and Pops?!!" Every day a disappointment in the constant reply of "not yet, BOY, 7 days." "Not yet, BOY, 4 days.".... You get the picture. It's going to be great!

Car travel. SO much better than it used to be. The minivan, once I got over the idea of driving one, is truly the GODDESS of long trip vehicles. I am grateful for it. No stops for poopy diaper changes or wailing for bottles. That time is behind us. Now it is "I spy with my little eye" and probably a DVD. Shameless, I know.

So, there will be a post or two or three. Depending on how organized I was before I left town. Please check in. And know, that I will be checking up on you saucy wenches and butchies, when I get back. Oh, yes, I will return to your blog...with a vengeance! Ta Ta!

Awww...that's so cool isn't it? I'm glad blogger have it now too...It was this reason that made me choose Wordpress...

Anyhow, we can all enjoy this great tool.

Have lots of fun!

Have a lovely time! I haven't tried the draft blogger thing yet. THe DVD player in the car is critical at least until the kids are tall enough to see out the windows for I spy and license plate games. We never tell them we're going anywhere until we actually are getting the car packed up to leave.

That is genius and about time.

I'll have to check that out.

(Have a good trip, phantom writer.)

Hope you are having a blast!
No clue how you did this though--I am technically challenged!

Have a wonderful, amazing time!
I too am in love with minivan travel, complete with dvd of course. I mean what did we do before we could take our whole entertainments systems with us in the car?
Take care!

I know I love that except I have only been organized enough to use it once or twice...

I love the minivan too. I can't believe I just typed that. God help us both. But really, when you are inside...you don't know it is a minivan. It is like the ultimate in denial.

Have a lot of fun. Come back with stories.

I love this feature! It's so much fun to go to sleep thinking, "When I wake up, I will have posted. Hee!"
