I Need a Vacation from My Summer Vacation

MENTAL STATUS: "Exhausted". Had friends come over yesterday with their FOUR children. Needless to say, there was NO downtime--and no Thursday Thirteen. We have tons of food left over, my house is in shambles and the extra cup of coffee I had is NOT doing it for me for this morning.

I'm sick of entertaining.

I'm done.

The food shopping, the cleaning, the cooking--the "chit-chat". I've had it! I want some peace. I even think I'm finally gaining weight. All that body sculpting can't compete with the dips, chips and desserts I've been shoving in my mouth lately--not to mention the fudge, saltwater taffy and cotton candy I've had at the boardwalk.

Yesterday, we took FIVE kids (all below the age of 8) to the boardwalk for rides and mayhem. You see, whenever friends are visiting from out of town, the hubby and I feel the obligation to show them the sights--which usually means the junk food. Ha!!

Hopefully, this will be it for awhile. Well, okay, after tonight.

Tonight, I'm not hosting, but we're going to a surprise 40th birthday/pool party tonight. Then I'm done with junk food and small talk. I hope. I really need a break.

Although, I did manage to read Shirley Jump's Married by Morning while I was at the beach. (Really cute book!!) My only escape of the week.

I must recharge my energy now for tonight. I plan on doing a little writing, too. It's therapeutic.

Have a good weekend!

Relax and rejuvenate!

My best friend is flying in from Jersey on Tuesday, so I'll be doing the tour guide thing for the next week or so. I'm really looking forward to it, because we don't entertain much. She's only been to Atlanta once, and she didn't get to see much of the area.

Now that you're done, give yourself some time to recharge so your muse can resurface. Looking forward to reading more of "Georgie."

I wouldn't mind a trip like that, but I can imagine I'd need to relax too! Have a nice weekend.

I am with you - July is apparently my "people" month. I have my dad visiting this weekend, then National, then a friend coming to visit!

I want to be alone!!
