and pee baby makes three - we're off to Lee Cottage!

Here we go again. You need to know the following vis a vis Lee Cottage and her peculiarities.

Numero Uno: We have a septic system, ergo:
  • nothing related to your period can go down the flusher. sorry.
  • avoid food scraps down the disposal in the kitchen. especially egg shells, which are not septic safe.

 Numero Dos: We have no recycling service, ergo:
  • bring a refillable water bottle. 
  • we have to carry recycling home  

Numero Tres: We are in the middle of nowhere, ergo:
  • mosquitoes are hungry for human flesh. bring bug spray.
  • once the sun sets, we don't use the front (lakeside) door. It's annoying to use the back (garage-side) door, but it's essential. Jeni dosn't want to spend all night swatting mosquitoes.


Numero Quatro: There's a drought, ergo:
  • as of right now, there's a burn ban, which makes s'mores a sad, sad, dream.
  • really the mosquitos aren't too bad.

Numero Cinco: We're going in August, ergo:
  • water sports!
  • sunscreen!
