I need a vacation!

So, what is every one's plans for the holiday? We are staying at home and making cookies that we did not get done last night. Then we will watch a movie or something, maybe go swimming, and then we will go out and watch some fireworks. I will probably cook a nice dinner and we will just try to relax! I am really looking forward to the relax part, but with 4 kids, sometimes that is hard. I told my mil the other day after she told me about her vacation, that I needed a vacation from my kids. Well, I just got this big lecture on how when you have kids you really never get a vacation until they leave home. Don't get me wrong I love my kids and we don't even have the money to go on a vacation WITH the kids, but sometimes I just need a break! You know? I have not even told you all everything I go through. Imagine one two year old and times that by 2 and add a still almost newborn and a 7 year old who refuses to help do anything, even take care of himself and you might get a picture of my day! The latest incident that happened was my two year olds were in the kitchen, not for long, I was changing Neil's diaper, and when I came back they had found the Comet and it was all over my kitchen floor and all over them. Their hair was white. It took me forever to clean up that mess! Can you say at least three moppings and a bath! Well, something like that happens everyday to me! I just want a small break. My mil has not been able to babysit like she used to for us because she has been working on Saturdays, so even to get out for a small time with my dh has not even been happening. So, if I want to say I need a break from my kids, not to my kids I might add, I think I should be allowed. Maybe some magic fairy will come and give me that wish, but I am not holding my breath and even though I say that, I probably would be going crazy after one day apart from them! I love them so much and have spent very little time away from them, like when I was in the hospital with Neil, was the first night I spent away from the twins. Anyways, off of that subject. I hope all of you are planning a fun-filled relaxing day tomorrow. Too bad it does not fall on a weekend! What are your plans for tomorrow?

I wish you could get a break, I'd help if I lived by you. I only have 2 kids and I wish I could get a break more. Have a fun 4th!

Hope you had a good 4th of July. I wish I lived close by and I'd offer babysitting! You have your hands full and everyone needs a break and "alone" time - absolutely nothing wrong with that. Remember the old Calgon take me away commercials? I think I looked like that on Monday- LOL. Will keep you in my thoughts and prayers.
