I think my issue is that I've been surrounded by the kids constantly this summer. I've not had any respite this summer whatsoever. No taking the kids to my folks for a few hours while I get my hair done, no having them come over for my doctor's appointments, no trips to the library where I can leave the kids for 30 minutes for storytime while I look for fabulous literary treasures, heretofore unknown to me...I haven't even been to the grocery alone since before Littlest One was born, and that's now been 4 full months!
And so today, I'm sitting here, with at least 6 loads of laundry needing to be done, a house needing picked up and cleaned, and I have been catching up on blogs, reading FB status updates...
I think I need a real vacation. You know, the kind where you go to a fancy, all-inclusive resort where you simply need to decide which fabulous swimsuit and cover-up you're wearing to the pool, what time you're going cave-diving, how long you'll sit poolside before lunch? Yeah, one of those.
If you know anyone who'd take a 4-year-old boy, a 28-month-old girl and a 4-month-old girl for 48 hours and send a full-service housecleaner my way so I can sit on my deck and pretend I'm at some club in the tropics, send them my way!
