But here's what I've realized about myself, and about my blog...I'm probably always going to try to spend my holidays actually "on holiday." I've always in some small part of myself wished that I was one of those people who could use nouns like verbs more often and do things like "summer," and "winter" somewhere. An extended vacation that really just gets to consume an entire season so that the seasonal noun becomes your verb of choice...but I'm not one of those people, so for now I'm going to take the small handful of days that the calender affords me and actually "holiday" on the holiday.
I busted my tail to blog when I was in Montana, and it was fun too, but this vacation has left me wanting to take a nap in the afternoons, or to sit on the beach an extra hour while my kids are napping. To get unplugged and stay that way loner than normal. I'm not really gonna drag my laptop onto the beach and give myself a square shaped tanline on my legs just to fire out a post. I hope you'll still read here though...and I hope that when I take a break, you won't hold it against me and forget to stop by here anymore.
May be one day I'll get myself in gear and blog way in advance and you'll get a "Happy Thanksgiving" post on Thanksgiving...or a "Merry Christmas" post on Christmas. My guess is though that most of you reading are doing the same thing that I am though which doesn't involve being on the computer when you happen to get an extra fun day off to spend with your family.
I have just two more days of vacation and then it's a 12 hour drive back home with my parents and 2 children...and if that's not a springboard back into reality, then I don't know what is?!
So...Happy June 31st, July 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th, and 6th.
