It has been 26 years since my last confession.....

Okay, I have a confession to make. I love being on vacation here. 'Cause I don't have to watch my kids. I have been in the back room, on the computer, for almost an hour. And my kids have been outside with GG.

I hate being outside (**shudder**), especially when it is so frickin' cold out. This is pretty much the only time The Boy gets to go outside, when we are here. The poor thing. They have gone in the Tonka Truck (four-wheeler truck), they have gathered chicken eggs, they have tried to feed the horses (the stupid things didn't want carrots. what's up with that?). They have gone on walks, and played out on the deck. All while I was inside, nice and warm and cozy.

Don't get me wrong. I still get meals ready, and change clothes and poopy diapers, and put them to bed. But I don't have to play with them!!! It's so nice. Thank God for still-active GGs (great-grandma's, for those that don't know).

Speaking of putting them to bed. It is nap time. I must go deal with the screaming and crying (mostly from The Boy). Say "Nuh-night!"

I totally know where your coming from. When we got to Hunny's folks, it's a double vacation. I can catch up on reading, watch TV (though I think that irritates the MIL). Monkey has so much fun there, doing absolutely nothing. So, you're not alone sister. TB

Howdy neighbor. I'm so glad you're enjoying your vacation. I love the grandparents. I wish I could pay my parents to live at my house. Everyone would benefit greatly from this arrangement.
