I just got back from two weeks on the East Coast. I'm exhausted. It wasn't a vacation, it was a trip. Me, alone with Chip and Lulu. Surfer Guy stayed home due to: 1) using up his vacation for Lulu's birth and his trip to Sweden last month with Chip to visit his mom. And, 2) Overseeing our remodel.
It seemed like a good idea. I'd get out of town with the kids and avoid the construction zone that is our remodel. Visit my family and take a road trip to visit friends. What the hell was I thinking? Me in charge of a 26 month old and a 7 month old ALL BY MYSELF! I now know that I am incompetent and I pray my husband and nanny do not leave me. Thank god my mother, sister, father, friends and strangers all lent a hand along the way. Yes, it takes a village to raise a child. I witnessed it.
Now I'm back and the construction zone is in full swing, I feel like I could sleep for a week and Chip starts pre-school on Tuesday. I still need to unpack. Our phone number has been hijacked by another phone carrier in a bizarre scenario that isn't even worth explaining here. If you call the house, you get a "the number has been disconnected or is no longer in service".
As soon as I get this all sorted out, I'll be back with a really good post!
