I use to dread vacations. The kids ( I only had two at the time) would be home, I would be overwhelmed. I felt trapped. I also felt jealous. It seemed all my friends would be gone on wonderful family vacations with their husbands and normal healthy children. I found it hard to go anywhere with Jessica and her sister Nicole. I hated vacations. Now I realize vacations have their advantages.. Even if we aren't going anywhere (we often go great places) I can at least sleep in. Today it was snowing. The kids played hide and seek all day. I watched Pride and Prejudice on DVD. Juergen brought home pizza for dinner. A vacation is really what I make of it. It isn't always exciting, but it is also not overwhelming. I guess I've learned to manage my life. Its hard to believe I was ever so helpless.
