The Sunday Salon: Back to Reality

The Sunday Salon

Well, our little trip to the desert is over and it’s back to reality for us. Forgive me for missing all of the Read-a-Thon action. I was with you in spirit, but we didn’t have access to the Internet while we were away. It was a nice break from my laptop but I missed all of you.

I didn’t get much reading in either. I managed to finished two books while away, but I expected to finish at least one more. We listened to an audio book on the way there, but on the way back, the content became a tad inappropriate for the kids to listen to. I didn’t think they were listening until the reader dropped the “C” word and my daughter wanted to know why they were talking about a rooster. Ahem, if you think about it you’ll get it.

The good news though is that the Otter Pup did great! She loved the long car ride and did great in the other house. She almost got violated on her first visit to the dog park but she handled herself well and came out unscathed. She took turns sleeping with the kids and that went well too. She just seemed happy to be with us. I was really nervous about taking her with us but she did great. I worried for nothing.

I don’t have any pictures to share. I brought the camera and ended up not taking it out at all because the weather was cold, super windy and sand was flying around everywhere. I didn’t want to damage the lens with all that sand action going on.

Okay, I’m off to deal with my inbox. Hope you are well and that you all had a good week.

  1. Ti, I’m glad you guys had a good time. I think sometimes it’s good to unplug completely. Also glad it went well with Otter Pup. :-)

    1. I finished The Four Ms. Bradwells† (Meg Waite Clayton) and Wither, (Lauren DeStafano) but the “C” word came from the audio version of The Swan Thieves. I was not expecting to hear that.

  2. I do not remember that word in the Swan Thieves! It sneaks in there sometimes. I am so glad you had a good time (and it must have been if you didn’t read as much as you thought!). Yay for Otter Pup too. Such a good doggie to avoid dog park ugliness! Welcome back. We missed you!

    1. LOL! I wish I had The Girl’s voice recorded. You’d have been touched by the innocence of the comment. The Hub and I laughed and then felt like horrible parents since The Boy knew what the C word meant.

  3. I’m glad you had such a good trip! I am the same way about stressing when it comes to traveling with animals – it’s always wonderful when it turns out so well.

    That is funny about the “c” word! It’s amazing how kids seem to pick up on things like that even if they don’t know what the meaning is.

  4. It sounds like you had a nice time away. Smart of you to leave the computer at home,

    I cracked up when you wrote that your daughter asked about a rooster in the story! lol

    It’s great that Otter Pup adjusted well to the new place and managed okay in the dog park, too.

    Missed you during the Readathon but it’s exhausting. I think that was my last in terms of reading.
