Random Thoughts

We leave for Mexico in TWO DAYS!!! Laundry is done and we are almost totally packed. I can't believe that we're going on vacation again. This is so unlike us. Jamaica in September, Disney World in December and now Cancun. It's crazy! This is the last vacation for a while. I foresee the next vacation being a staycation.

We can't wait to see the Lizard King. It still overwhelms me sometimes how much I love him. Being apart for so long is the hardest thing I've ever had to do.

I wandered away from unschooling for a while. It was immensely helpful in showing me that unschooling is the right path for us. With my whole heart and soul, I truly believe in unschooling. It is an amazing thing. I am grateful to my friends in real life and my bloggy friends who have helped me to find my way back to unschooling.

I want to know why some family relationships are so difficult. (I'm not talking about LK or Princess.) I also want to know why I trust relationships too soon and divulge my safe place, rendering it not so safe anymore. Then I wonder if I just shouldn't care and then deal with the repercussions.

I just discovered "Heroes", the TV series from back in 2006, on Netflix on Demand and am totally addicted.

We break ground on our new house the Monday after we return from Mexico. Princess wants to be an architect when she grows up. She and I will be setting up chairs to watch the process and progress.

I recently discovered that I am an introverted extrovert. Now I have to figure out how to find my balance. It is something that I have been struggling with lately.
When we were in Florida, I thought I would blog everyday but we were exhausted. I plan to blog from Mexico, but we'll see what happens. I don't know that I'll be reading everyone's blog everyday. I know you all will understand my absence. Right?

I'm going to have a huge crate of this stupid snow delivered to your doorstep when you get back from warm, sunny Mexico ;) Wait, I should be asking you to capture some sun in a jar or something.

I'm not jealous...

Have fun!!

Have a great time! Enjoy the vacation and worry not about us.

We'll keep the bloggy fires burning until you get back! ;)

I hope all 3 of you have a fabulous time soaking up the sun in Mexico! Can't wait to hear about your adventures when you get back!

I don't know why some family relationships need to be so difficult either but I can attest that they are. Sometimes a deep breath and a glass of wine makes me feel a little better but I have found that fueling the fire by talking a problem to death doesn't really help they way I think it would especially if your family is anything like mine (sticking their fingers in their ears and chanting "la, la, la, I can't hear you").

Have a wonderful vacation!

I wish I knew of unschooling when my kids were little.

I love heroes too! I have their opening monologues rotating in my sidebar, lol. THOSE ARE AWESOME!

If you ever figure out that introverted extrovert balance let me know! I am an extroverted extreme introvert, which is equally confusing lol.
