VGNO: The Vacation Edition


I haven't been participating in the Virtual Girls' Night Outs that Ann's been doing the last few Fridays, honestly, because I've got less naptime on my hands over here. Baby is officially taking one nap a day now, so I've lost an hour to an hour and a half of "mom time" and I'm still trying to figure out how to get everything done in a shorter period of time. But I've been wanting to participate! I've missed you guys!

This week, Ann's talking about vacation time. I haven't taken a vacation in a long time. I'm not entirely sure that I miss that, because I wouldn't want a vacation without my kiddo, and that would be a lot of work, surely. On the bright side, though, Husband is taking a week off very soon, and we'll get to have a bit of a stay-cation with lots of family time. Hopefully we won't drive each other batty.

The best part of him taking some vacation time is that hopefully I can have some vacation time, too, and get some things done, try some new recipes and handle some projects I've put off (like dealing with my closet!). And I have a feeling I'll wind up baking some super yummy donuts for breakfast here and there!

Ann's got a fun little game for VGNO...

Must have been 100% real Eggnog...too much to handle for a kid in the middle of the night.
Happy VGNO!

I love eggnog...the more rum the better :)

Earache is pretty pathetic...but I am sure it has been used before. And it's not like my answer was better.

Happy VGNO

Happy VGNO okay momma you have to do things when she is not sleeping or you'll not get it all done. Soon though the baby'll be a toddler and "helping" you out.

Mandala Michelle said...

Glad you found a little "Me Time". Babies are hard, but that is why they are so cute.

Kris said...

I haven't had much VGNO time in the past few weeks either! I feel your pain!

Lady Mama said...

Ah, I miss nap time. My toddler stopped just before he turned 2. And as for vacations - enjoy your staycation! We've been doing one this week.
