Catching up

Life gets in the way of blogging. It's the paradox of writing a mommy blog.

It's been a pretty brutal couple of weeks, with Husband and I finally selling my old station wagon, Girl Scouts to deal with, out-of-town guests to entertain for a weekend, and a new, wretched phase that Sister is going through involving a lot of lying and tears. Phew!

Fortunately, there is an end in sight, or at least a much-needed reprieve. Tomorrow at noon, I and 4 of my good college friends are heading to Topsail Island, NC for a long weekend at the beach. No kids, no husbands. I am practically delirious with excitement at the idea that I'll be able to sleep in, make ONE breakfast for myself, sit in one chair as long as I feel like it, and have lengthy, uninterrupted, grown-up conversations with some of my favorite people. Knowing that I can't have any of the free-flowing cocktails that are usually characteristic of this trip doesn't even matter. I.can't.wait.

I believe I recall you mentioning this trip last year. I am so excited on your behalf. Hope you have a FABULOUS time because, as we both know, soon there will be no sleeping in or sitting still. But it will all be worth it!

I'm so happy for you! I think all-girl vacations with your best buds is the key to staying sane. I hope mine becomes an annual thing!
