I've been a ball of nerves recently.  And it so happens that kids have been climbing and kicking and sitting right on that ball.  Muy mal.

Since I am American and my July has been so patriotically busy everyone EVERYONE is overtired.  My kids are adrenaline rushed overtired.  Simply put: they're so tired they can't sleep.  My head has been spinning.  Yesterday everyone woke up uber early from their naps which put me in a fit of rage.
Me:  God, you need to take my rage away, please, thanks?
God:  Plan a vacation
Me: omg, God, you're so smart.
Hiiiiiiiiii kids!!!!!!!!  I'm so happy you're awake!  I love you and I don't care that you're whining incessantly because we're going on vacationnnnnnnnnnnn

Do you have any suggestions for a vacation spot (relatively cheap) in the Northeast?  I made the humongo mistake of googling it.  We'll pass on family massages, thanks.


  1. I was going to suggest Topsail Island, North Carolina or Wrightsville Beach NC but then I saw Northeast - I guess that is more south. But both are great relaxing places, as well as the Outer Banks NC (I'm a bit obsessed with the state, can you tell?)

    No matter where you choose to go the relaxation will do you good. I hope you get lots of it and feel refreshed when you get back!!! ox

  2. oooo... vacation! How fun! Too bad I don't know what place to suggest, because I have no idea of what your place look like, hehehe... :P

    have a nice vacation and be back with great stories! :D

  3. IF ONLY I knew where to go in the NE. I don't though. I'm sure you'll figure out something though and have a great time.

  4. niagara on the lake. its beautiful, close-by and lots of cute shops and things to do.

  5. Isn't there the HUGE mountain range known as the Adirondacks near you? I'm guessing they've got stuff to do for families in the summer? Lake George or the Poconos maybe?

  6. Rent a little cottage in Canada on one of the beaches. Vrbo can be your best friend!

  7. Have you ever been to Mohonk Mountain in New Paltz? It's supposed to be beautiful, with great hiking trails and lots of fun things for families to do together. Or the Adirondacks are always beautiful, too :) How fun--let us know what you decide!

  8. I love when God gives great ideas like this! Yay for vacations!
