I knestående

Bilen var omtrent i knestående da vi pakket inn det mest nødtørftige istad. Og enda er det mennesker og hund som skal inni der. Lurer på hvor langt vi kommer… Vi skal jo ikke langt men likevel a mann! Soveposer, luftmadrasser, bord, stoler, telt, klær, enkelt kjøkkenutstyr som likevel ikke opptar enkelt-plass, bøker, ipoder radioer, kjølebag. Jeg tror minsanten fanden og hans oldermor må ha lurt seg med i en eller annen bag, altså! Og det regner enda dit vi skal. Jeg holder like godt øye med yr.no og pent.no som en etterretningsagent, jeg snakker med campingplassen, jeg sender mannen ut på de siste ærender, jeg setter tenåringer i gang med hundehårfjerning på parketten og tenker i mitt stille sinn: Vi har det fint her hjemme…

The car practically knelt when we stowed in the bare necessities this morning. And still there’s supposed to go people and dog in there.  I wonder how far we’ll get. Not that we are going all that far! Sleeping bags, airmatresses, tent, chairs and table, simple kitchen equipment that sure isn’t taking up just a simple little space, books, ipods, radio, cooler. I suspect the devil and his great grandma must’ve snuck in her taking up space! I am fanativally keeping an eye on the two best sites for  weather forecasts , I’m talking to the campsite on the phone, I’m sending Hubby out to do some last errands and I’m getting teenagers to vacuum doghair off the floors- all the while thinking: I like it here at home…
