Maineiac Goes to Camp

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Hey guys–all of you who’ve been here awhile and all my new readers, too– I’m about to go on a little blog hiatus for the next few weeks. Maybe ship the kiddos off to summer camp (yeah, right) do a little gardening, drink a few beers, pass out in the pool….y’know, your typical wholesome family fun.

I hope that once the effects of the PBRs, chlorine fumes, and sunscreen-poisoning wear off, I’ll be conscious enough to start posting again sometime late July.

Be sure to come back for my

She’s A Maineiac’s Second Anniversary Blog-a-palooza post on July 21st!
(Yes! I’ve actually been blogging that long! I know, it’s nuts, right? My husband thinks so.)

There will be another rockin’ video! Much better than the last one even!
There will be danger! Mild Profanity! Cool music!

Also, another vlog! Where I do something very embarrassing!

And…maybe…some disastrous baton-twirling!

And my first contest! You might win something!
(oh, so NOW I have your attention? I get it, you only want freebies…I understand)

Until then, I’ll miss you all.
Happy summer!
See you July 21st, I hope!

(Feel free to use the comment section below for your own amusement during my break. Post hijack at will, chitchat, have private convos about the latest in blogging gossip, share recipes, discuss climate change–but please– keep it friendly while I’m gone….and if anyone else I know gets FP in the next month, here’s my comment in advance: Congrats! WOW! Well deserved! I love you and I’m not just saying that!)

  1. Is she gone yet? Do you think she will notice if we steal a bit of her funny while is away … Oh, Darla, didn’t see you there. What am I doing? I was just um … you know … um … (sound of Ape crashing through window and running frantically down street)

  2. You had me at “do a little gardening, drink a few beers.” I should do that when I’m off. No, wait…maybe I already am off. No, there are still kids here. Wait. Never mind.

    Looking forward to Darla-palooza. Have fun and wear sunscreen, so you don’t look like a raccoon in your baton-twirling video (I wait with bated breath).

  3. Is anyone else giddy at the thought of one less tough competitor in the 7 Deadly Sins Contest, Byronic’s caption contests and other sundry contests of wit and creativity?!

    In other news, I’m glad that Darla will be enjoying herself and chilling out. I know if that was me, I’d have been filling that coffee mug with PRB’s and IPA’s a long time ago. Who am I kidding? I drink out in the open.

  4. I am going to miss you, but have a fantabulous vacation! Wow!
    Looking forward to winning a “maniacal” prize when you get back.
    Love your sincere congratulations~ You crack me up Darla. The best ever photos! Can’t wait for your video!

  5. Oh my gosh. I honestly feel like we’re saying goodbye for the summer before we both go to high school. What am I going to do without you?! Okay, deep breath, it’s only one month…

    ha ha! I hope you have a WONDERFUL hiatus (your advanced FP’d comment is hilarious) and I cannot WAIT for the baton-twirling anniversary vlog (I’m just going to assume this IS happening, to help me cope with your departure)…

  6. NOOOOO!!! Don’t leave me! I finally found my long lost twin and now you up and disappear on me??? How is this fair? LIFE IS NOT FAIR!! Grrrrrrrr.

    Sigh. Ok, deep breaths, zen outlook, calm demeanor . . .

    Fine. You go and have your fun. But I will be waiting here when you return. Oh yes, I WILL be waiting. You can count on that!

    Have a great break. You deserve it. I will miss you. See you on the flip side! 😉

  7. Okay everybody, let’s take over this blog. We have a month. We can do some serious damage. hehehe.

    Jules, Peg, Lenore, Thoughtsy, Misty, Byronic, and the rest of yous, let’s take it over. 🙂

    1. Hmm, well let’s see . . . you’ve already stolen her mug and avatar. I guess I could try to aquisition all of her plaid flannel shirts. Although, I tried that look in the 90’s when grunge was all the fashion, and I don’t think anyone wants me to go back to THAT look. Unless it comes with Eddie Vedder. Cuz then . . . well, let’s be honest. I will probably be trying even harder to get OUT of those flannel shirts, ya know. 😉

      1. THAT’S why MJ’s new avatar looks so familiar – it has been bugging me.

        I was just thinking that Darla’s post on sex will probably be FPd next week. If a post falls in the FP forest but the blogger isn’t around to hear it, did it happen?

      2. Hmm, are you sure she didn’t steal my mug and plaid shirts?? I’ve been sporting plaid since … well, let’s not get into that. A LONG TIME! 🙂

        So Misty likes Eddie Vedder, huh?

      1. Thank goodness you recovered quickly from the your/you’re travesty, Angie. For a split second there, I wasn’t sure we could be friends.

        1. And I would completely understood if you felt that way. As for me, I could never be friends with someone who made their own almond milk — mostly because it would make me feel lazy and inept.

          1. Would it help if I started wearing mustard socks and ketchup sashes? Maybe our friendship can be repaired if we’re BOTH on the A Train to fashion. 🙂

      2. But the really aggravating thing was, that chick was wearing WHITE socks. WHITE. On what planet is mustard supposed to be WHITE??? I didn’t mention it at the time because I didn’t want to diss your awesome fashion-backward video, Angie.

  8. Awwwwww. I’ll miss you, Darla! But a well deserved break for sure. What is that, do I see a WP tat on your arm? Did you and Peg get those without me? We were going to go together! I feel so left out, like I didn’t get invited to your slumber party. Oh well, to get even I intend to use this comment space to post youtube clips of the Chariots of Fire soundtrack for the next few weeks. I hope you still have readers left when I’m done.

    Bye, Darla! Don’t let curiosity get the best of you. We’ll behave–mwahaha Did anyone see where she left the Skittles?

  10. Tar-Buns

    Darliciousness, I miss you! I hope you aren’t pulling your hair out. It will take some adjustment, as all habit changes do, to have you relaxing with a few PBRs in the kiddy poo, without reading all the fabulous blogs you subscribe too, including, well, Yours!

    Your plaid outfits are so COOL! I know you will be the hit at the kiddy pool convention 🙂

    OK, MJ Monaghan, what gives with you stealing Darla’s plaid coffee cup? Hmmmm?
    That doesn’t seem fair, since she’s not here to defend herself. And so I am confused about who you are. Do tell. What’s with the change of avatar?

    Love and peace to you all. Hari Krishna! (have a flower, thank you for your donation – NOT). The T-Berry Woman…

  11. Have a great holiday, Darla! Thanks for keeping my inbox cleanish for the next month or so– I totally appreciate the help and CAN’T WAIT for the video when you get back. 🙂

  12. Hope you are enjoying your blogging break, and I hope I remember to check back in at the right time when you return. I think we must have started blogging about the same time because my two-year anniversary is the beginning of August. Hard to believe!

  13. Deborah the Closet Monster

    Oh, geez! I feel guilty for how long it took me to catch on, but I’m a little glad, too. That’s one less week of me watching the calendar! Hope you’re having a blast, lady. ❤

  14. I think those pictures have been doctored. Your kids are home from school and they’re letting you take a nap?

    It would be funny if during your break, you got Freshly Pressed. Well, wouldn’t it?

    1. Ha! You are a clever one, Charles. Yeah–like I would ever be laying down resting for any length of time this summer.
      It would be hilarious if I was FP in the next few weeks. If I’m not around I nominate you to reply to all my comments. You’re not busy, right?

Tell me about it.
