quick greetings from a dark room

For a blogger to take a week off of writing is like asking a dog to take a week off of sniffing.  Somehow I got it in my head that I was going to take a week off during this family vacation.  Hence, I am laying in bed in a dark room while everyone sleeps, and I am writing this post.


Don’t misunderstand, I am having a blast (cliché but fitting) and this was a great idea on my part to share a family vacation in lieu of lots of gifts.  Just on the plane ride alone, I felt as though mission accomplished as I sat next to my son who as of this morning is officially ELEVEN and chatted away.  I mean that is the point of what I am doing here….spending face-to-face time with my lovable sons and often hysterical husband.  Oh, and my mom who is here, too (she is forever fabulous)


However, taking a week off of writing — CRAZY, LOCO, NUTS.  You see a blogger’s mind is always taking a tiny ember of life and weaving it into a post, and here I am on a cruise with my family with embers happening by the minute.  Just the fact alone that I have taken the MOST amazing photos on my camera yet left my cord to download them at home is a post about what not to do when traveling as a blogger.


My aforementioned plane story, my snorkeling adventure, and my son’s birthday are all stories that I want to share along with the pictures that go with them.  I know….I am such an idiot with the camera cord, but you will have to wait until next week.  Which in a way is a good thing because this week is my time with my family.


I promised no working and tons of family fun.  Maybe it was sub-conscious that I forgot the cord, I don’t know.  What I do know is that I am having a really amazing time with my tween sons and family while talking, swimming, and just hanging. I needed it and they needed it, so even though it is excruciating not to share major life lessons and anecdotes on the blog for a week, good things come to those who wait.


I am meaning me – I am WAITING and good things are happening with my family and me.  So, it is all worth it.


I have to go before the troops wake up, but before I forget, HAPPY Hanukkah, Merry Christmas, and I am now officially a mom to an ELEVEN year old — HAPPY  Birthday JB!


Oh, if you are a fan of my FB page – http://facebook.com/Backngroovemom – you may get a chance to see an Iphoto or two (that cord I have).  Rachel
