Thursday: early (2:30AM is early!!!) morning wake-up with a feverish Seth; no VBS; pack the car: hugs Miss Tiff’ny bye; 0 miles-per-hour construction traffic on I-71 in KY; Greema’s driveway at 1 AM and a 40+ degree temperature drop.
Friday: rain, rain, rain and COLD (wardrobe severely lacking in the warm dept –oops!); lots of hugs and tears and “look how far we’ve all come” memories exchanged; diet blown on yummy funeral luncheon desserts; date night at Pizza Papolis, Kohls, and (oh-how-I’ve-missed-you!) Handel’s; first hot tub foray in over 4 years; and Seth, back in our bed (what is up with that?) at 2 AM.
Saturday: lazy morning; shipped the cranky boy off to a day of fountains and movies with Grampe; Hobby Lobby and WalMart fun with the best MIL in the world; cookout with Doug and Sara and Sara’s homemade angel food cake and homemade whipped cream (yum!).
Sunday: early departure; Meijer run for AAA batteries for DVD headphones; Covington, KY Chipotle with pretty much the rest of the entire world; way too many potty breaks in KY; home by 5 PM; pasta for dinner; Kroger run for milk and bananas; bath, bottle, bed for the littles; The Next Food Network Star; and a sweet (uninterrupted!!!! all night!!!!) sleep in my own bed.
Glad to be home. Stumped on the week’s meal plan and grocery list. Forecast says rain all week but today; need to get to the greenway at some point today. Want to pick up some cheery geraniums for the pots on the front porch. Want more for it to be 2 weeks and 3 days from now so I can head to the airport to pick up NONNA!!!!! Patience; it’s not so much my virtue…. And now you’re caught up.
Oh, yeah. Erin took her first steps over the course of the last few days. She’s getting braver and surer, but she is still pure speed on her knees. Just a little bit longer!
