Rambling Friday

I'm rambling two hours early. It's Thursday night and I'm packing for a weekend away.

Hubs is staying home and I'm driving with the kids two hours to my parents' tomorrow. He has a two-day golf tournament. We're going 'home' to get spoiled. My brother has finished BUILDING his house (with his nurse-by-day, general contractor by night wife) and I'm so excited to see it.

My kids are healthy. Knock on wood.

Brenna was so tired tonight she couldn't focus at dance class. It made me picture many weeks of not-focusing at dance to come. Do I really want to do this every week? I'm the queen of 3 weeks and this was Week 3. Brenna promises she really wants to do it. We'll see next week.

Mason did not bite this week. Not once. Great week. Great kid. I worried about not much after two bad days.

I feel like I should knock on more wood.

I'm tired. The kind of tired that makes me try to shrug it off and pretend I'm fine. I'm hoping a weekend in the country cures all.
My mom's got these great flower beds and I feel at peace there. It is where I grew up, after all. My dad spent the summer helping my brother BUILD his house, so I haven't seen him for awhile. Can't wait for a visit. And a hug.

Have a lovely weekend. I intend to.

I love your parents' house. I feel at peace there too.... even with our huge family out there. It's wonderful. And hugs from your dad.... that makes me want to go out there for a day too. Heck, I'd even drive out there just to get a hug and get back in the van to head home. Uncle Mike's hugs are some of the best EVER!!! Get some for me and stop on your way back to Omaha to deliver them, will ya???

It's funny, but when I go to Mom and Dad's in Omaha I am at peace too. They don't even live in the house I grew up in! There is just something about Mom and Dad that makes all the bad go away. When I got there last weekend after the funeral, before my hubby and kids arrived, I felt so much better just sitting in the kitchen with Mom and crying my heart out with her. It just made me feel better. I know we say it all the time, but let's face it.... we are some of the luckiest people in the world. I hope our kids feel the same way about us when we are "old"!!

Take some pics of Brad's house!! I wanna see what the finished product looks like!!!

BIG HUGS!!! Tell your folks hello!!

I'm jealous. I haven't seen my parents since July and I miss them. I had a great time when I visited them and I love getting spoiled too!!!
Have a great weekend.

Have fun!
I see my parents EVERY DAY. You know that saying "too much of a good thing"? That would be it.

Oh, The Joys said...
