Keepin' it real, because I lurv you.
have fun, but don't be like that cat ~ wear plenty of sunscreen! now go & don't be miserable. maybe knock the kids heads together a little bit when you first get there so that they know you mean business & they'd better behave. i think every vaca should start out with a sudden & unexpected beating. keeps them in line.(and for anyone who thinks i'm serious, calm down. i do not beat children. only animals.)
Have a nice time.
no, no, Sherlin! I think you were on to something there... a vacay that is founded on fear, fear that will blossom into peace. Interesting theory.Also, I think the fan base should use this post to have the most interesting conversations and debates. SO deep and profound that Karen will have to start a new blog somewhere else in despair!! bwahahhahahaha!
Sorry. Sherilin. Missed the 'i'.
i guess i can let you slide on missing the I. i miss "I" sometimes too because i'm almost always "we" now. where have I gone?
Well, okay then. :)
matt, i thought you were looking for deep & profound discussions & debates. i guess not...
Looking forward to reading about it.
OH, you wanted me to engage conversation on the lack of individual identity parents suffer when raising kids - therefore, there is only 'we', never 'I'? Or is that in the context of marriage? Or the workplace? Many angles to that.
Have a wonderful time my Darling! xoxo
Have a great vacation and rest well. There's nothing like vacation and family time (hopefully). See you soon, BarbaraEspañol para Niños (Spanish for Kids)
Well, since I'm just getting to this now, you probably coming back right now. I really do home that you had a great vacation. We've been at the beach so many times this Summer that I'm sick of it. And Fred is wanting to do it again this weekend.And the answer is "yes". I am usually this uptight and a stick in the mud. m.
Have a good time and don't forget we want details when you get back!
Hope the vacation was a good one. I've rented a beach house for a week this October. Hopefully it will be too cold for anyone to want to bob in the water but warm enough that I can sit in a chair and veg.
Sherilinie, I like the sound of a sudden, unexpected beating. As the kids are freaking out that I've dumped them in bed before 8:30, it sounds very freaking good.
thank you Laoch, it was very nice :)
But Matt, as eloquent as that sounds, how do you make it work if the kids have no fear??? Oh wait, Jack is scared of school.
By the way, Matt and Sherilin, I greatly enjoyed your little convo there. You crazy kids you.
thanks dbs :)
Oh look, Matt and Sherilin are getting all existential about the LOSS of our own personal I, once we have children...I'll just sit back and let you people do the work.
Thank you Ms Caffeine :)
Muchas gracias, Barbara! I'm behind in my spanish lessons and have to catch up. The kids were not impressed at all when I told them about mas hormigas en casa. Pfft. Kids. What do they know???
MARK! I was just getting ready to come looking for you. That's a long enough vacation, MISTER! Can we be sticks in the mud together and enjoy adult cocktails???
so many details Lizbeth, so little time. I guess I have time. Mostly I'm just burnt.
ooo...a beach house in october! Here that means NO FREAKING MOSQUITOES. Thanks Lisa, it actually was very nice.
oops, i went out of town for a few days & forgot to come back & finish my conversation with matt about losing one's self in a relationship, whether it be a marriage or parenting sort of situation. it's just as well. i rarely have enough depth to me.
there's a certain irony about you losing the chance to talk about the loss of "self" Sherilin. Me likee.
I lurv comments. Thank you for the comments. They are scrumptious.
