Hiding out

The cupboards are bare, the bathrooms cleaned of anything you put in your mouth, the decks cleared… it doesn’t look the same. After the girls go to bed I have to bag up the food in the fridge and freezer and finish the piles of laundry. Tomorrow we pull the covers off the mattresses, chase down the cat, load up the car and get our butts up to the mountain. While we’re away big tarps, big clamps, big guys running all over the house, packaging up our home like a circus inspired present. We’ll come back to a home free of (living) termites.

I’ll be incommunicado for the next couple of days; going to a cabin without cable or internet. For entertainment we’ll walk through the forest; for communication we’ll talk face to face… it’ll be a nice and needed break for all of us. Have a great week!
