OK, so I wrote a post several days ago about vacation with the family, and then I deleted it before posting because...well, it just vented all of my disappointments and frustrations, and you don't want to read that. Let's just say that vacation was hard. There were fun parts. But spending a week together with Joe's family was better in theory than in reality. They don't really get along so well under usual circumstances, and here we all were in a cabin together for a week. So you can imagine. There was an underlying tension, too, surrounding our handling of Olivia because all of the other grandkids are teenagers and, well, everyone had advice. Because THEY could do it better. And, well, you can imagine how well that went over.
Needless to say, we probably won't be doing THAT again anytime soon. Ahem.
We've been so off schedule this week, but being home is so good. We are going here and there and doing summer stuff and taking teeny naps and staying up late. And the weekend is going to be more of the same. And I am surprisingly OK with that. It's just nice to relax and be US again. No pressure.
Hope you have a very nice holiday weekend!
