Insert hold music here

I'm off with The Child today for our yearly trip to the UK.  The Husband is already there, and we're staying for two weeks.  A good break from work, but that's a LOT of time away from my furry family.

We have a nice lady who stays in our house and watches the pack while we're gone.  I wanted to take a moment to apologize in advance to her.

Lovely house-sitter, I apologize for:

  1. Rip's wildness.  Yes, he's always energetic, but he seems to be on an extra wild kick right now.  Even after a walk he's wild.  I can't explain.
  2. All the pet hair.  I did vacuum, I promise.  But with Maggie and Ziggy both losing their winter coats, the hair tumbleweeds re-form almost immediately.
  3. All the barking.  The Trio are on a bark-a-thon lately.  Inside?  Barking!  Outside?  Barking and running!
  4. The fast-growing lawn.  It's spring in Iowa.  Which means mowing nearly 2x a week.  We'll be gone for 2 weeks. That's 4 missed mowings.  I hope The Trio doesn't get lost in the long grass.  I hope our neighbors don't hate us.
  5. The things I inevitably forgot to do and/or tell you.  I did my best.

House-sitter THANK YOU for staying in the wildness that is our house.  You are a saint (which means you're in good shape on May 21st)!

PS:  I don't know if I'll be able to post anything from across the pond, so things might be on "hold" for a while


  1. Enjoy your trip! Hopefully the house sitter will still be sane upon your return. ;)

  2. Sounds wonderful! I wish I had a house-sitter. It's a little late now, but you could always hire out a lawn service for a once-a-week cut just to keep the jungle tamed a tad.

    Have a fun and safe trip!

  3. Have a great time. The house sitter and the trio will work things out.

  4. Have fun!

    Grandson and Granddaughter. Be good!

  5. Um, how would I go about becoming a member of your family in time for next year's UK trip? :)

    As long as Rip doesn't behave like Marley and eat a couch, you should be good.

  6. I hope you enjoy your trip! I was imagining all this time which onhold music might be fitting but I guess Baha Men's "Who Let the Dogs Out" would be a perfect fit for this.
