Vacation, day 9

Okay, so relaxing a bit more, realizing that I only have 3 more days of vacation. A bit annoyed at the moment - husband is going on a golf trip this afternoon at 3:30 - right in prime time kid meltdown, and of course doesn't understand why that is annoying to me. It is a LOT of freaking work with 2 kids in the afternoon, when the naps are done, and you are just killing time before dinner, but again, said husband doesn't get it. I am just starting to read the Inheritance of Loss, but am already not into it, however I am stuck with nothing else to read. Not feeling the inspiration at the moment. . .

Okay, I am pathetic. It is now day 8 of my vacation, and I am going out of my freaking mind. I have serious issues if I can't just relax and enjoy this "uninterrupted" time with my kids and husband, right? I am struggling to face ANOTHER day of the pool and beach. . .I hate to say it, but the one-year old is just a lot of work. Here is the mommy disclaimer - of course I love him, and love being with him, but it is NON stop. It takes 30 minutes to get lubed up, packed up, dressed up and then we are at the pool for all of 20 minutes before I am antsy to leave because it is so much work with the little one. I feel like I suck, once again. Home is easier, but then there are the distractions, and j is off again. Why can't I just be happy to have us all in 1 place, spending time together (if you don't count the computer time?)?????

Water for Elephants

I just finished Water for Elephants, and I have to say, I didn't like it. In fact, the more I think about it, the less I like it. It seemed very stage-y, and the ending rushed up on the book so quickly it is as if the author had something else she needed to get to.


Ultimate in vanity projects. . .Is that what this is, just the need for public airing of my compelling thoughts? More than anything, it is because I have such amazing mommies in my life that I want us all to communicate with each other, commiserate and understand that if we don't have each other, this shit is so much harder.
