Gettysburg Family on Vacation...

I should not be sitting here writing this post. I clearly have 6,000 things to do before we leave on vacation. I'm very good at procrastinating, though. We're off to the camp in Maine with my parents. I probably won't be able to share photos until we return. Dial-up, you know. But, I don't want you to forget us. (All four of you....) So, here's my thought: Come up with a question for the Gettysburg Family. No, no, no- not what do you actually do all day Gettysburg Mom. My husband asks that one often enough. So, let the questions roll. Please?

Tell me, Gettysburg Family, if you had to name one TV show or movie that best embodied you, what would it be?

Hi,

So, What do you do to relax??? I saw that you posted at a very, very early hour.
Love you.

How did the Mars Rover actually get on Mars?

I'm the forth!!

ok, this is my query: What happens when the kids are hungry, you only have 100 more miles to your destination and you just want to get there? Do you stop or medal to the metal??

See- I knew there were four of you!

City Mouse- Most days I think it would have to be the Simpsons... Rich doesn't even complain about the comparison to Homer... although, clearly, Marge is a much better housekeeper...

Katrina- The hour is not accurate. I knit. I knit and I drink. Sometimes, I knit while drinking...

Sue- clearly it was a top secret deal hammered out between Halliburton and The Illuminati. Granted, details are sketchy...

Speedymac77- We travel with our own food these days. I'm reaching a point where I don't dig fast food so much. Shea eats nothing but pop-tarts anyways. Yesterday, the kids grazed for just about the entire 11 hours...the crumbs are approximately 2" deep in the back 2/3 of the van. The family is all good with this, except Rich. He whines everytime we pass a KFC.

More questions please!!

Are you still planning an upstate NY trip the same week that we will be in Gettysburg? I made our reservations for Sun July 20th -Weds July 23rd. I was hoping we could get together for dinner one night...maybe at the Blue Parrot place you talked about. Let me know...would like to see ya'll.

Deanna- you suck. You absolutely suck. How did you plan a trip to Gettysburg for the one flipping week we'll be in NY??!! Perhaps we can see you when you get back up North? Did I mention you suck? But I still love you!

I know...there are 52 weeks in the year and we pick the same one to go opposite directions!! We have to pick our vacation weeks so darned early in the year....who knows what will be going on at the time?? Who knows in January what you want to do in July or later? But anyway....hopefully we can connect while you're up here. Have fun in Maine!!
