Gone Fishin'

Just a quick post to apologize in advance for a week or silence. I'm taking a brief family vacation and don't want to be one of those people who updates the blog with rub-it-in-your-face photos of postcard sunsets and white sand beaches.

As any working parent of young children knows, no vacation is really a vacation. I'll be lucky to finish one book in between all the peanut butter sandwich-making and sunscreen applying. My cocktails will be consumed on the deck after the wee ones are in bed -- if I can stay up that long.

Last year, we made one expensive trip to the local medical clinic for my daughter's ear infection. This year, I'm sure my son will come down with something wicked. It's a Kinney Family Tradition.

See you soon.
