I'm on VACATION!!!!!!

Finally! I'm on a much needed vacation! I've needed this for so long! I am glad it's here!
I bet you're thinking by this picture that I'm on some beach somewhere. That I'm enjoying the summer sun and the cool crisp waves of the Atlantic Ocean. That Allison is building a sand castle with her Daddy as I'm enjoying an umbrella drink. That's what you are thinking, isn't it? Be honest. You are jealous, aren't you?
Well, don't be! This is what I'm doing on this vacation!
I'll be cooking...

and cleaning...

and doing loads of laundry...

and a little gardening...
and maybe some painting...
and definitely grocery shopping!

Fun vacation, huh?

It may not be a vacation that everyone dreams of but it's what I need.
I need to get caught up on things.
I need to do some projects.
I need to try some new things.
I need this time just for me.

I'm sure when Curtis gets home everyday from work, he'll expect to see this:


I am sure this is more realistic as to what he'll see when he gets home!

I'm hoping to also spend some quality time with some girlfriends. However, I think I'm safe to say that our middle aged Mom bodies haven't seen a bikini in years! In fact, I'm sure the girlfriends in this picture aren't Moms at all. If they were, they wouldn't be on some beautiful white beach running into a clear blue ocean somewhere at an exotic vacation spot like they don't have a care in the world. Nope! They would be rubbing handfuls of sunblock on their little ones at a not so pretty vacation spot or they would be changing a water soaked diaper or keeping their kids from having a sand fight. No, these ladies are not Moms. They may be some day and when they are, they will see that there is no exotic vacation spot that will ever compare to hearing the words "I love you Ma Ma" come from your child's lips. Speaking of my child...I am also hoping to spend some quality time with my two favorite people in the world. It doesn't have to be fancy. It doesn't have to be a sunny beach. It doesn't have to be an amusement park. I'm happy just "being" with my family.

A vacation is what you take when you can no longer take what you've been taking.
