Real life

We found someone to look after the kids so we're going away for a few days. Scratch that. We found someone to stay with the elderly in-laws for a few days, so we're going away for a few days. Our life at the moment isn't so free and easy, but those who think that the No Kidding live free and easy lives are short-sighted. Just as those No Kidding folks who think that having children is all about playing happy families are blinded to the realities of life.

So we've hit the road, and we're going to explore a part of New Zealand we don't know very well. Unfortunately, the weather is supposed to crack up in a day or two, but we didn't get to choose when to go away. So we have books and music and wine, and if we have to hunker down at the beach bach we've booked, then we're ready for that.

  7. Love what you said there -- the glossy version and the reality are so different in both cases! Have a WONDERFUL vacation, it sounds lovely. I hope the weather breaks for you, but honestly those rainy days where you hunker down with a book and wine and snuggle up to your person are just amazing, too. May you have a little of both!
