Lessons Learned While On Vacation

Ok, so yall know this is my second week of my vacation.

It was very much needed, seeing as how I was plotting out ways to fake my disappearance so I would never have to go back to my office.


Anyway. It has been a much deserved break. However, I have learned a few things over the last 10 or so days.

1. My husband has the libido of a teenager.

2. He thinks I'm a teenager as well.

3. There is a such thing as spending too much time with your spouse.

4. People cut their grass way to damn early round these parts.

5. You become very nosey about what your neighbors are doing. ( I know who's doing who and when.)

6. You might end up thinking of ways to strangle some people's dogs that can't tell time. Shutthehellupalready!!

7. Some days can fly by while some can drag on like a Soap Opera.

8. You kids will find new ways to drive you batshit crazy.

9. You will start to think work isn't all that bad...

10. You will curse yourself for thinking of #9.

I have a few more fun things coming up before and after I head back to work. Sesame Place this weekend, Myrtle Beach on the 20th and the first day of school for Lael (my first grader!!) on the 24th.

Ok, so that last one is only fun for me. I don't thinks she's too excited.....


  1. Agreed. As much as I dislike going to work, after a weeks long vacation (not to mention TWO weeks) I am ready to get back to my blessed schedule.

  2. I so know the feeling of "I can't wait to get back to work". And my job is non-stop crazy. Still easier than being at home. If I need something, I ask... and it's done. If I need to pee... I go. I can concentrate on one thing at a time. No need to multi-task. Good support system. All the things I don't have at home! Ha ha

    I remember when mine were just babies and the ladies I worked with had school aged kids. I remember by August they were all DYING for school to start again. I remember thinking "I can't imagine feeling that way."
    I sooo feel that way now. Too funny.

  3. Sounds like a great vacation, nonetheless! You're hilarious! lol

  4. She goes back on the 24th? You are so lucky. Mine don't go back until Sept 14th!

  5. #9 and #10 made me laugh so much, Yikes! I tend to do that every vacation!


Those laughing with me...or at me.
