Vacation Saga Day Eleven: Reality Invades

So we really wanted to stay another day at the lake, but Mom forgot something important at Grandma and Grandpa’s, so we had to go back as things were due by the end of the day.

I had an errand of my own, something to mail, so after our semi-lazy breakfast, Kathy was going to let me use her printer to print out the label.

Well… that turned into a project because the computer downstairs was dead, and the new printer did not want to install properly. We had to go through it twice and it errored twice, but in the end, I got my label printed, my package packed, and we were set to go.

We had a brief stop to make to get our maple cookies, as that store in Detroit Lakes is one of few that has them all the time, and so we were there when we finally heard from my uncle and ended up stopping at his house to see him and my other aunt on our way out of town.

So we almost spent the whole day at the lake again in spite of things, but we made it back to town for the necessary things, got Grandpa a second battery for his spedometer, and ended the evening quietly again.
