Sometimes it's nice just to get away from it all. Yet sometimes getting away from it all is not going anywhere at all.
The neonate wasn't keen on traveling, so anything involving the vehicle was out of the question.
It was sad to say, "Sorry kids, but we aren't going to travel 24 hours to get to your grandparents this year."
Yet, while the kids are away at school, the days we would normally have spent in the warm weather are just as relaxing here at home, so long as we can stay away from the normal routine.
It's hard, though, to not do the things you want to get away from when you are supposed to be on vacation. And Disney World is a heck of a lot more fun than blogging (oops, I'm not supposed to be doing this either. See what I mean, this is hard.)
But, when one has kids, sometimes these are the sacrifices one must make. If you have kids, I'm sure you know what I mean.
