Memorial Day Weekend - Saturday, 3:34PM:
Dana: "Hey family [Chad, Kel, Grandma & Jimmy the Dog], why don't we be crazy and head to Orange County for a quick trip to the beach, O.C. Swap Meet & Ikea?"
And we were off for a whirlwind-filled 24 hours of:
*Sneaking 5-lb Jimmy the Dog into the hotel.
*Sneaking little sleep since Kel thought 12midnight was a great time to keep singing 'Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star'.
*Finding some goods at the O.C. Swap Meet.
*Finding a voicemail from our hotel that the stowaway puppy that was supposed to be sleeping in his kennel had been yipping up a storm and needed to be removed immediately. [Totally not kidding!]
*Removing Jimmy the Dog, ourselves & luggage from hotel.
*Removing several items from my Mom's purse to make room for Jimmy because we were not going to let him stop us from Ikea. He enjoyed the view!
*Loading the car & heading home.
*Loading the nebulizer up with Albuterol. Keller had an asthma attack somewhere between Barstow, CA & Baker, CA. Pulled off at a rest stop and giving him a breathing treatment in the scary-pipes-exposed-back-shed of the rest stop -- the only place with a power outlet.
Overall -- lots of funny stories for a quick 24 hours!
