What is it with the vacations???

Posted by Stephanie S. on 6/26/00 at 23:46 (022463)

Are we all doomed or what? LOL
I go on a family reunion weekend. I pack clothes for 3 days.
I bring my one and only favorite sandals...that I can walk
around in fairly well. You know....the Birks kind of sandals.

You just have to picture this....I'm in a dress and remember
my favorite sandals ( the only pair of shoes that I brought
for this weekend trip)...I'm watching the children swim in
the pool along with have conversations with family members.

My 3 yr old decides to take off arm floaties...says 'Mom...
watch this' and jumps in the deep end of the pool.

Panic sets in...I jump in ...clothes...shoes and all to pull
her out. Bless her heart...she's fine...I think she realized
after jumping in...' Oh...I don't seem to be bopping up like
I usually do'.

Needless to say...I was the joke of the weekend...I had squishy
shoes to walk in and was teased unmercifully about 'Don't squirt
Stephanie with the water guns....she's running out of dry clothes'.

Just thought I'd share my story...being that we all seem to
have something go wrong lately with the vacation thing.

Is there such a thing as needing a vacation from the vacation??

Stephanie,

I'm so glad the baby was fine. Well, at least even with a parental emergency, you left your shoes on and didn't go barefooted! I hope your Birks dry out ok. I hear it's not good to get them wet.

Best wishes,
Beverly

That is so funny. Your right...I didn't go barefoot.
Their really 'wanna be Birk's' but I love them. Their kind
of like them. Their named 'Bjorndal' ...walk with nature it
says. ha ha

I bought them at a store called 'Rack Room'...only $40
verses $100 for the Birks. I love them.

We've all laughed about I wear them so much that maybe the
chlorine from the pool 'killed the stink in them'. LOL
