We cleaned the house, cleaned the bathrooms, changed the cat litter, washed the dishes, took out the trash, cut the grass, swept the driveway, cleaned out the minivan, got the oil changed, got the inspection done, cleaned the bedrooms, did laundry, swept, mopped, edged, went grocery shopping, barbequed, and saw the Apple swallow a mancala marble.
We've not had a vacation since just after I took the bar back in 2007. That year, we went to Indiana to visit family.
This year, we're going on vacation again - to visit family. This time, however, we're going to Arkansas. It's to see family, but on a more serious matter - the brother in law is going to Iraq to serve for a year. His unit's been called up. We're looking forward to seeing him off, and wish him well while he's over there.
