One of Those Days...

Do you ever have one of those days? Or weeks, for that matter? You reach a point where a) you just want to scream "Can someone please make sense?" or b) you just want to leave. For a month. And then, when you come back, hopefully everything will be nice and calm again.

Well, the last couple of days have been like that for me. Basically, I've been feeling that if I don't start packing to go somewhere soon, I'm going to go completely stir crazy. But that's not happening. I told my mom, "France has been calling to me lately." and she said, "Oh. Well tell them hi."

My family isn't exactly the pick-up-and-go-somewhere type. Which I totally understand - after all, what with the basketball games and the house almost ready to go up for sale, and five younger siblings... yes, I understand how international travel would be impossible. But - next weekend, my parents are taking me to a homeschool conference downtown. We're staying in a hotel for two days while the little ones are at grandma's - so at least I get to pack a bag for that. I can pretend that I'm hours away from home. Then there's spring break to consider. There's a slight possibility that my family will be able to go to my grandfather's lake house over spring break in a couple of weeks. I sure hope so - my camera has been dying for new scenery.

Here's a little something for you, since you got to the end of that rant, and since I've been dreaming of international-ness. Simply right-click on each picture and set it as your desktop background, if you would like.
