Blog-cation - Baby Steps in High Heels

Thursday, January 6, 2011


I’m going on a blog-cation, of sorts. Between a business trip to San Diego next week and a vacation the following, I’ve got entire books of Baby Instructions to write in the coming days.

So, while I’m not ruling out blog posts all together, I’m also not very confident that I’ll get around to it very often … because, you know, I also have a full time job, which apparently requires my presence and attention from time to time.

Then there’s the parenting. And the being a wife. And lots of other things I’ll be compressing into the 5-day window in which I’ll actually be seeing my child over the next two weeks.

Yes, I’m using sarcasm as a coping mechanism.

No, I’m not ungrateful for a vacation. Just bummed to be away from Baby so much in such a short period of time (especially since my traveling season for work picks up next month).

I’m hoping to at least stave off an entire I-miss-my-child-and-she’s-probably-going-to-start-walking-any-day-now-but-probably-on-a-day-that-I’m-not-home meltdown until I’m sitting on a Jamaican beach three sheets to the wind …

Husband, if you’re reading this, I hear that the Sandals resorts offer BOTH five-star spas AND jewelry stores. Just sayin’ …


  1. In any case, I am jealous! I want a vacation badly! Just waiting for them to hire someone else in here so I can plan my vacation and know it's covered.

  2. Oooh, a Jamaican vacation??? Sounds wonderful!

    Try to enjoy yourself. :)

  3. Jamaica will be awesome! :)

    It will be fun! :)

  4. Happy Blog-cation. Sometimes life just gets too crazy!

  5. Jamaican massages will allay your guilt, I'm sure of it

  6. Jamaican beach?!? Where was my invite?! ;-) Have fun. And for your sake, I have she walks on one of the five days you'll see her.
