So tomorrow if all goes well and weather holds out we are taking a road trip. Most of you know this but for those who don’t I have a wicked case of IBS. That coupled with hubs having gone back to school and money being tight well we just don’t travel much. Now that hubs is back working we thought we’d do a day trip. Test the waters a bit. See if my tummy will behave on a short road trip. We want to do a couple longer ones but need to experiment first. See if my body can handle it. So the plan, which could get waylaid between now and tomorrow, is to travel up to London for the day. It’s about an hour and a half from us. There’s a farmer’s market up there, lots of malls. So I can get my beloved fruits and veggies, and mini-me can shop for some back to school supplies/clothes. We promise to bring the camera and take lots of photos to amuse you. B might come too and visit a friend up there. Not sure yet. Hubs has to work so it’s just me and the hooligans. I am borrowing a friend’s gps for the day. The goal is to have it go well so we can take a few other trips before winter hits. We want to go up to Palgrave next weekend to see mini-me’s bff compete in a horse show. That one might not be possible though as mini-me might not be able to work out time off. Then the weekend after I am thinking of hitting St. Jacob’s which is about 3/3 and 1/2 hours from us. It’s an Amish type area with lots of shops/flea markets/farmer’s markets. It’s close to Elora and Elmira which also have great places to poke around. Then in October we are thinking of hitting Stratford and possibly Toronto. So cross your fingers, toes, eyes, legs, anything crossable this goes well. With my tummy issues one never knows. It’s a real crapshoot. *sorry I could not help myself*

Yup, busy week and a half. I think I have proved 3 things during this time.
1. I am nuts and come from a family of nuts.
2. My kids are as nuts as I am and they do exist.
3. Hubs is a nutball as well.
So there you have it. Ground breaking stuff here. Aren’t you glad you read this blog?
Now on to my bookmarks for the week. I pick a baker’s dozen each week. So here they are. The Lunatic’s Baker’s Dozen Picks:
Again I apologize for not getting direct links for some. Normally I take the time to comment and save direct links to blogs. But with everything going on the last week or so I just have not had the time. Shall make sure I am organized and on the ball for next weeks. So sorry to anyone who got a foodbuzz link posted, I was short on time this week.
Which reminds me I gotta run. Mini-me is heading over to friend’s for a visit, sort of a see you off to University thing. A few of her friend’s are going away to University so they’ve been having get together’s to say their goodbyes. So sad, but part of life I suppose. There’s a few she shall remain close with no matter where they end up.
So I am off. Hope you enjoyed this installment of Lunatic Loves. I shall see you all soon. Gotta run out that door, hopefully not into it a mad rush.
Toodles and smoochies. xx
