I think we need a vacation from our drive to our vacation. Getting all those deliveries made around Brooklyn before we left and hitting major traffic wasn’t fun. And imagine Mia singing the WHOLE way there, which is what she does whenever she gets into a car (no, actually, she pretty much sings 75% of her awake time). Plus we didn’t realize that our check in time at the rented house was supposed to be at 3pm and we got there at…10am. So after a couple of hours bumbling around vineyards, having lunch, grocery shopping, a trip to Starbucks, a quick jaunt to the beach and worrying if my mom made the drive back to her house after coming with us in the morning back in 1 piece without falling asleep at the wheel (she suffers from chronic insomnia worse than me – sometimes not even sleeping a wink at night), we finally settled in. The kids were excited about the bunk beds in their room and the house was surprisingly well equipped with toys, but being that the place was much smaller than our apartment, they had toys dumped all over the place within 15 minutes.
Our first evening ended with dinner at the Swissmiss North Fork house, which is just a few minutes drive from the house we are staying. Mia was so excited that she was going back for a visit that she was a completely hyper, not to mention hungry and overtired from waking up at 5:30am this morning (!!!) and not even falling asleep on the drive over. Can’t remember when I’d seen her like this (oh wait, yeah…earlier this afternoon…).
I’m the last one up as usual but I stupidly drank an espresso after dinner.
I see a bug on the wall. I will try and ignore.
