vacation is underrated.
nine straight days of doing absolutely, 100%, nothing work-related. mother of GODDDD, i should have been born italian rather than just married one. i EXCEL in the art of vacation like no tuscan fella ever has.
i didn't think it was possible after 90 straight days of planning, organizing and executing too many parties to count, that i would be able to shut this crazy-ass hamster wheel of a brain off and so thoroughly enjoy a vacation but i am here to tell you folks...IT WAS. aided by the oh so delicious Mount Gay Rum Southside every day at around 4:59pm, my toes in the warm sand and my kids cousins around to entertain them constantly with cards, boogey boards, roller blades, jaunts to town for massive bags of candy (don't think less of me, it was vacation, i did make them brush their teeth), i just aced vacation. give me a 100% because i am a master.
and i'm here to tell you one more thing for those of you still stuck in the parenting hell of diapers, naps, whiny toddlers & poorly inflated floaties, when you hit the sweet spot where your youngest kid can swim, wipe her own *ss and can put her dishes in the dishwasher and yet your oldest isn't sneaking bartles & james wine coolers out by the docks with the neighborhood boys (what? who did that? i never did that) you will be in NIRVANA. i know it doesn't seem like it will ever get here but when it does, let me be the first to tell you vacations feel like you that time the dentist gave you one extra hit with the silly gas...sublime my friend. just seriously a whole notha' level of fabulous.
but alas, the vacation is over and with it comes parties, banquets and some stupid tasty PIPING HOT DINNERS. so take a gander at the fresh meals we have below and order up your food for the upcoming week. our salads, soups, hot dinners & desserts will help bring you back to reality without such a hard crash to the ground.
