Lots of books, vacation and an ear infection

We just got back from 10 days of vacation in our new (to us) camper. We went from Grand Rapids to Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario to North Bay, Ontario to Alfred-Plantagenet, Ontario to our friend's house in Woolwich, ME (then back home through Buffalo, NY after a visit to the in-laws).

Some highlights:

1.) Getting to Canadian border in the U.P. and thinking we didn't have the kid's birth certificates.

2.) Paying $1 for five minutes of showering.

3.) Being the only people not speaking French at a campground. Parlez vous Francais? Non.

4.) Getting an ear infection (me) and having to go to an urgent care clinic in New York.

5.) Seeing a moose pooping warning sign. Still not sure if that was for real.

So the books I read (or listened to) were:

#58 "Ten Minutes From Home" by Beth Greenfield.

#59 "Girl From Foreign" by Sadia Shepard

#60 "The Good Life" by Jay Mcinerney.

#61 "Middlesex" by Jeffrey Eugenides

#62 "Didn't I Feed You Yesterday" by Laura

I really liked "Girl From Foreign" and "Middlesex". I hated "The Good Life" but finished it because I was desperate for something to listen to on the drive.

And now I am reading "The One That I Want" by Allison Winn Scotch.

Now that I updated you, I am going to return to my Vicodin haze.

Thank you for the update. I'm highly entertained be the fact that you guys bought a camper. But I'm only laughing a little because this means we can meet in the middle and camp - or meet anywhere really. That'd be fun. Where do we want to go? Out West? (And yes, I know that's not the middle.)

Burning question: Does Dave take the Yahtzi with him when he travels?

Oh - and most importanly - you are lookin smokin hot. That camper is making you look SKINNY! No joke - you look great!
