Let's pretend it's a vacation.

On our way to play putt-putt
So....  I have a place to live, but I can't move in until the 16th. It's a great little place, perfect for what I want right now, and I'm content to wait for it. It's just meant that I've had to make this week a bit of an adventure with the kids since we're staying in a hotel.

They've loved it--they've gotten to watch their shows on the bed while coloring, every meal has been a picnic, and Puck has been ecstatic about getting donuts with breakfast in the mornings.

Yes, they've become a bit spoiled this week. But it's my first week in Florida and we're in a hotel. When I get them back after they're at Monty's next week, things will be different and quite a bit back to normal. I'll even have a place to hang our big family calendar so we can keep better track of our schedules!

It'll be so good to get back into our regular routine once we're settled in the new place. I don't like this whole no-real-routine thing I've got going on. Sure, I can pretend we're on a little vacation, but it's still weird. I want a real kitchen to make real food in, my own washer and dryer, and more windows.

But, for now, we're pretending it's a vacation.


  1. I think it's easier for kids to take that vacation because they don't have to worry about all the other things that come with moving; they leave that to mom and dad, of course. But that's awesome that you found a place that you like! Moving can be such a hassle, especially when you're deciding where to live.
    P.S. That picture of your kids is so cute!

  2. I know what you mean. To the kids, it is a vacation. To me, it's just a bit of chaos. I'll just be glad when I'm settled!

    P.S. Thanks! They're (usually) very sweet to each other, and Puck can be quite protective of Tink. Other times, though, they don't want to have anything to do with each other.


Add a little caffeine to my life...
