This is not a vacation. It's a business trip.

The recent disappearance of Providence Schools blog posts corresponds directly to the onset of school vacation A great line from Modern Family (which you should watch, and if you already do, you're agreeing with me) keeps flashing into my mind. On a family vacation, Claire, mom of three kids, can't chill out and explains her wound-up-ed-ness by saying, "For me, this is not a vacation. It's a business trip."

Since I am "on vacation" this week, it's pretty much all business around here with 24/7 kid action. We're actually having a great time, but blogging? Not so much this week. Monday's snow brought sledding. Yesterday, duckpin bowling. Today, with cousins visiting, doubleheader of snow tubing* and laser tag. Totally epic. Tomorrow, probably ice skating downtown. And Friday, New Year's Eve party action with small kids. Break out the Martinelli's!!!

As an example in action of what this week is like, I wrote the two preceding paragraphs 24 hours ago and only now have had a moment to finish. And finish I will, before something else happens. More soon!


*Snow tubing update: shockingly, we were not the only people who thought that school vacation + boingingly energetic kids + recent big snow = go to Yawgoo! Go we did but it was sold out for the morning. So we explored the wilds of Rhode Island, ended up lunching at Middle of Nowhere Diner in Exeter, which was excellent, fantastic clear clam chowder, everyone else's food looked great, and wicked cheap. Then laser tag, which someday I want to play for real, not as the palace escort/guard/monitor for King Bosser Leader Dude Guy (our 4 year old's self-proclaimed and honestly accurate title). Fun was had by all. And I got to play skeeball!
