BLISTER: an elevation of the epidermis containing watery liquid
Each week, we review our calendar and then list our main events on a white board in our kitchen. Generally, this is Husband’s job. Every now and then, he puts something silly on the board to see if I’m paying attention. This week he outdid himself. Here are the “Main Events” of the week ahead as posted on our white board:
Son’s kindergarten playdate
Husband’s coach’s meeting
Mom leaves for backpacking
Daughter’s swimming lesson
Mom starts backpacking
Kids to Papa & Nonna’s house
Mom’s blisters start to hurt
Mom thinks “Not another day of hiking!” Blisters are huge
Mom vows NEVER again!
Why would Husband allow this? It’s his job to stop the crazy.
Mom tries to climb into brother’s pack.
Mom returns safe, sound and happy to be home!
Husband and children rejoice!
There you have it. I’ll be back next week…blistered but happy.
