Please don't be an omen.

I'm beginning to wonder if leaving on Friday the 13th to begin our fun vacation is not such a good idea.

Are these signs?

I ran over Carter's finger with the shopping cart and caused it to bleed. (Good thing we were near the bandaid isle. I needed a new box of bandaids anyway.)

Had to return 2 pairs of shoes because they were the wrong size.

Alyssa threw-up during the night. She doesn't feel sick so I don't know what that was all about.

I slept in and missed Muffins with Moms at the school this morning causing two little girls tears.

Oh, and do you think I can find Star Wars Legos for the DS anywhere in this town? Nope, so Bolt will have to do. (Don't judge me, I'm buying myself some sanity for a 16 hour drive.)

Update*** The library just called to let me know I have 2 overdue items. What? I thought I had returned everything. Great, searching the house for lost books is EXACTLY what I need to be doing today.

Please don't be omens, I just want to get on this trip and start having a good time.

At least you didn't need to be near the stitches aisle!
Have fun.

It wouldn't be a "vacation" if things like this didn't happen beforehand! Hope everyone is feeling better and you have a great time!

I think it could get much worse if you really wanted it to. You'll have a great time- I mean, who wouldn't have fun spending 16 hours in the car with 4 kids?

It is a sign that you should let me take that trip for you, stay home and find that lost book, deal with puke and make more muffins. Slow down and realx, I will say hi to mickey for you. He he haaaa♥

Chuckle...I wish I could look for that lego thing for you over here...bummer...no time. You know I would do it for you too!

Anyway, bon voyage! Is that the right spelling? Have a great time! I can't wait until you're finally in the truck, and then say to yourself, "did we bring......" and go through the laundry list of things.

Have so much fun...I can't wait to see all of the pictures! Is it rude to say, "take a good look at the tea cups for me."! They sound like fun (I wouldn't make you ride in them, you get SICK!).

NO, they're not omens. That is just life trying to get on the road. Just get in the car, pay the fine, place the bandaids, wipe the tears, don't forget a puke bucket and I think you're going to have a great trip!

You had 13 comments on this 13 post and I'm going to mess it up now! Ah well! I was married 13 years when I got divorced. My mom was diagnosed with cancer on a Friday the 13th. But I've also had surgery on a Friday the 13th and came through it alright, so I thought it would be ok to fly on that day---and it was! :)

Glad you got some new bandaids. Way to see the silver lining ;)!
