I’m back! Thanks so much for showing lots of love to my guest posters. My family and I were out of town for the past week, but you know me and my paranoia: I don’t announce that I’m out of town until I’m back! Since we were traveling, I didn’t get to read any blogs(except PYHO links) and I didn’t have much time to answer emails- my inbox is SCARY!
Going to try to get caught up today.
But, for now, here are the highs and lows of our Spring Break:
LOW: Two children puking as we drove across state to the NC Zoo.
HIGH: One of them made it out of the van before he puked.
HIGH: The boys had a blast at the zoo!
LOW: They also got overtired and cranky from a 3 hour drive and then a 5 hour walk around the zoo!
HIGH: Dinner at Darryl’s. Seriously, I think it would be my favorite restaurant ever if only it were closer to us. Grown-up food, but kid-friendly. They even have a kids’ concierge! Oh, and s’mores for dessert.
LOW: My boys got arrested while we were there.
LOW: Bear getting himself so twisted up in his seatbelt that we actually had to cut it off of him. We tried for 45 minutes to get him out of it but it was hopeless.
LOW: Third child puked.
HIGH: Puking child was playing a game on my iPhone and yet didn’t get anything on it!
HIGH: Getting to spend time with my friend Angie, my margarita girls, and some college friends.
LOW: Realizing that I don’t ever get to go out like that down here.
HIGH: Playdate with friends, Children’s Museum, and Natural History Museum with my kids.
LOW: OMG, do I feel old! Where do my kids get all this energy?
HIGH: Getting to meet my newest nephew, see my niece, plus spend time with my brothers and their wives.
LOW: When I totally misunderstood one of my sils and almost took her head off because of what I thought she was telling me. Good thing I bit my tongue and waited.
HIGH: Shopping at the White House Black Market OUTLET for some clothes to wear to an event that Ashley and I are going to in two weeks. And sending her pics of my outfit choices so I could get fashion help.
LOW: I didn’t find a money tree before I went to the outlets.
HIGH: The Royal Wedding- even though I didn’t think I’d watch it- it was fun to imagine that was my life, that I was a princess.
LOW: HAVING to get up to watch it so I could work!
LOW: Driving past where we used to live and having the Garmin display that address with a house symbol and the word “Home,” knowing that will never be home again.
HIGH: Realizing that where my boys and husband are: THAT is home.
That about covers it- or as much as I can remember when I’m this tired after a week of traveling! I’ll be by visiting y’all today!
P.S. Did you meet this week’s Blog Friend Feature?
