jingle jangle, shingles shangle.

The only word applicable in the title would be the 2nd to last one. For those of you who don't feel like counting, that would be SHINGLES.
me. guilty as charged.

it bites the big one. and I hate shingles.

but I will say this, I'm glad to know that all my whining and pain for the last 1.5 weeks aren't in vain. Am I sad that I have shingles, yes. But, do I feel validated for being so miserable? you bet your bottom dollar.

So, people, riddle me this:
HOW do you pack for 5 + weeks of vacation which includes a trip to Utah, Alaska and then to Lake Powell? Just curious. And, with the new baggage rules, how do you do that with ONE piece of luggage, a stroller, a car seat, a mini human (aka matilda) and who knows what else? Oh, and all the while, you can't sit down or bend to pack it all because you have mini blisters every where.

As the friendly people at McDonalds sing, "I'm lovin' it."


We're heading outta here!

Heaven help us.

but, before we go, I'm on the PC side of my computer (it's a Mac) and I just found what I gave Becca a while back. Enjoy, muchachos.

p.s. no, the original version didn't have "copyright melimba 2009", but I added it to the digital file so no one rips it off. i'm tricky like that.

Ooooh, have fun in Alaska. I think you will like it. If you get a chance, drive Turnagain Arm. It is the most gorgeous drive and you can spot beluga whales! Have fun at Lake Powell too. Good luck packing.

It doesn't matter what you pack because if you forget anything, I bet we can come up with it in Utah. The U.S. is cool like that- it is very similar whether you are in Utah, Arizona, Alaska, or Tejas. Shingles sound terrible. But luckily you have art skills to make up for it. Which, by the way... you cut off the best quote in that picture, but it's ok because we put it up in my room so you can see it during your entire summer at the wildflower resort. No more sleeps!

SO, SO sorry about the shingles. Unless you've had them, it is hard describe how awfully painful they are. But, I've had them, and I know, and I am so bummed that you have had to deal with them! I tried to call you back, but your answering machine kept beeping randomly at me, so I don't know if you got any of the message. We had lots of help on Saturday, so no worries. Just feel better and have a WONDERFUL TRIP!!!! We will be excited to have you back in Primary when you get back!

I think its better to forget about shingles and just think about jingles. Hopefully in this way you will feel better.
