My First New Year’s Resolution

If I have to hear one more time about Augusta Wollard going to meet with the modeling agents in New York City on February 6…I will just continue to smile politely and redirect the conversation.  But honestly, Sondra Wollard is the most stuck up and boring person alive, and no one cares about what Augusta is doing for the entire year of February!

Of course Starling is constantly being stopped on the street and asked if she is a model and every single person who I have asked has agreed that Starling is by far the prettiest and smartest girl at her school.  For me, her education is just a bit more important than a career modeling and a lifetime of eating disorders because of feminism and so forth.  I don’t understand why the other moms all ask Sondra about her boring daughter’s boring meetings in New York, because they all must agree how tedious the topic is.  Not interesting, Sondra.  Please move on!

But me?  I’ll just continue being the superior person here and help some of the other, uglier little girls feel better about themselves by listening to their moms talk about the fucking travel team.

She was beautiful and smiley even as a baby!

Summer Excitement

Last summer my family did not manage to get away for a vacation like I wanted.  Röbert claims it was because of my spending blahbety blah blah blah.  How  could my spending prevent us from going away?  I only buy necessary things like food and shoes and gym memberships and Röbert is always buying fancy suits for the office and expensive stuff for the cars, like repairs and gas.  He even bought sports equipment for the ridiculous mountain hiking things he does!

Anyway, we have been talking about this summer and Röbert agreed that we could go away to someplace “modest” for a week in July.  So I am thinking of either a lake or the beach.

At first he suggested camping but I said no to that. Can you imagine being stuck all the way out in the woods?

For a minute I thought that glamping might be a nice compromise.  It would make me seem hip and flexible and some of the glamping resorts seem fun.

It looks so cute!  I think they might have turndown service and champagne.

But then I read something about composting toilets.  Is that even a thing?  I don’t know what that means and I do not want to find out!

So, I am thinking this place looks nice, also a compromise because it is on a lake, not a beautiful white sand beach.  Röbert could do his thing with the kids and I could relax for a change.

It is large, but I need a lot of space for my stuff and relaxing.

I also like this place and it is also a compromise and modest because it is not oceanfront, which I prefer.  I am all about being reasonable and hearing what Röbert has to say here.

The kiddos would love the pool and I am sure Röbert would enjoy surfing etc.

So now I have a decision to make!  I can’t wait for our lil’ modest vacation. Where should we go?
