Changing Plans

Well. We were all going to go out of town together for Easter weekend, but Dad was still in pain last night and ended up at the ER. He has intestinal blockage so instead of going out of town, he's going to get his stomach drained.

I think this would not be his first choice.

So, the girls handled the disappointment very well. I've made a deal with them. If we work hard ALL DAY cleaning the WHOLE HOUSE then they will not have any chores the rest of the weekend. Also, maybe we will grill hamburgers tomorrow and play in the sprinkler. Just something fun instead of going out of town.

And at least we'll save gas money!

It's going to be so nice to have S off work for three whole days that honestly, I don't care what we do.

But a healthy dad, a clean house, and time with my husband sound pretty good.


  1. sorry about your dad--- glad it happened while you were still here adn NOT there!

    "like" button for the rest of the post! WE are cleaning and DOING all day and then Saturday and Sunday it is all about family time...

    Man you could have used the gas to come here yesterday!

  2. I hope your dad is feeling better soon. Enjoy this holiday with your family. :)

  3. Sometimes staying home is better anyway!

  4. I'm sorry about your dad. I hope your family time together this weekend is still good!


I don't get to talk to a lot of actual grown-ups during the day, so your comments make me really happy! :)
