I know my strengths. Really.

I have realized I am VERY good at vacation. It comes naturally.

I don't need to be shown anything.
Sit on a sandy beach and not fidget a bit. I didn't wiggle once.
Sleep without the weight of unaccomplished tasks pressing on my me. No dishes. No laundry.
Great at room service. How wonderful would it be to have tips left for me at home? "Housekeeping!"
Leave my room and NOT make my bed, Easy.
Come back to said room and throw myself onto the bed now neatly tucked. Superb.
Drive a little faster then normal in a Convertible, RED Mustang-Sure.
Play all day and not make sure the members of my entourage are present and accounted for. I worried only of me and my needs. Selfish, but SO nice.
Have grownup conversations with my intelligent, beautiful sisters and mom. Thank you for not asking me to make you a PB and J once.
Laugh and Laugh and Laugh. I am so glad I am related to people who get me.
Body surf and Boogie Board in the ocean like a kid. Might not have been a pretty swimming suit view, but I was on vacay and didn't give a damn.

Lynnie (mom) I hope this was as enjoyable for you as it was for me. I love hearing your laugh and knowing you think your kids are funny. You fuel our insane fires. Sorry for making you play the MOM role while at Newport and giving you some worry when you couldn't find your daughters ~ 34 yrs old, 30 yrs old and 27 yrs old who were playing in the ocean. Happy Birthday. Let's do it again this weekend. xoxo, k

sounds like you had a wonderful time. it would be so nice to go on a vacation without my kids. I only did it once. It was heaven. I was glad to be back, but I think we mothers should get away like that once a month for sanity purposes. Especially now that it is summer.

I'm totally jealous. I'm pretty good at being on vacation too. Maybe someday I'll get to go on one again. I'm glad you guys had a good time!

no one asking for PB& J's? Delightful!!

It sounds like you girls had a wonderful time in your red convertible cruisin' down the Cali highways and way to go on the boogie board. SO FUN! We are all a bit jealous!

Sorry that I made the bed! It's a habit I can't break on vaca, but at home sure. Oh and I'm not JEALOUS, cause I WAS THERE!!!

Sounds like you had a fantastic time. I'm going to hold you to visiting So Cal and stopping here! I love getting away with the girls. It refreshes me and makes me a better mom. If our men only knew how good it is for us they would KICK US OUT more often.
Love you!
