  1. I haven’t been on a kid free vacation either. The time I did get away I was pregnant, so that doesn’t really count, right?

  2. I have never EVER been on a vacation without the kids although I hear it’s a lovely activity. *sob*
    Your “30 minutes uninterrupted but 6 hours in actual time” for writing a blog post made me actually snort out loud with laughter. SO TRUE, my friend! Hahahahahaha!
    On a serious note, that med cost number (if you didn’t have insurance) made me seize up with fear. Whoa. And people wonder why I think ensuring that all people are covered by medical insurance is a moral issue. –Lisa

  3. I’d be scared to see my life in numbers!

    That med thing – wow! Why does something that helps people have to be so expensive?? When Joey was sick, people tried to have fundraisers for us, but our insurance was so good that we felt guilty taking money from people. Now, on the other hand, when we were going through fertility treatments we drained our entire savings. It’s not as cut and dried as people assume.

    • Ahhh…yes. I could have included the $20,000 we spent trying to build our family. This was a lot longer and then I started getting scared myself so I cut it down.

  4. Wait, only THREE meals a week?! How is that possible, and how do I sign up for that?? Can you even believe how much medicine sots without insurance? I’m so thankful we have insurance, too, although, I would LOVE to have insurance for our dogs. Their medicine is ridiculous (Nowhere NEAR $14K, though)! It’s amazing how much repeating we have to do, day in and day out, isn’t it?!?

    Thanks for joining in!

    • It’s only possible because of our schedule. :) If I had my way, I would be cooking (or at least enjoying sitting down as a family). Loved the link. It was fun and enlightning to see my life in numbers.

  5. AWESOME NUMBERS!! Meds…I get that. Even with insurance, we are still paying off medical bills from as far back as 2006!! Blog post- oh yes…even more hours if the kids are really needy! 😉

  6. Isn’t it funny (and amazing) that everyone in the family thinks Mom knows everything and asks a million (or a thousand in your case) questions a day?

    I don’t believe I’l get to go on a kid-fre vacation until I’m 45. Oh, ONLY 9 MORE YEARS.

  7. Interesting stats. I usually do not sleep more than 4-5 hours a day either. Everyone says that it can be bad for my health. However, I do not care much. Otherwise, I won’t have enough time for giving my family all love and care in the world)

  8. Amazing how much so many of us have in common. And I have neverhad a kid free vacation although the last few years I have been thinking about it more and more.

  9. If only I had a penny for every time I’m asked to find something or if I know where something is. . . then I’d surely be rich. 😉
