Back Home

We went away for the weekend! It was the trip we were supposed to take last month but then my dad decided he'd rather spend 6 days in the hospital. So, we went this weekend. We invited a friend and she brought her 8 year old niece who, may I say, was perfectly delightful? Seriously, she was so good and pleasant and not at all a bother and didn't even annoy me like other people's children sometimes do. (Oh, admit it. You get annoyed by other people's children too sometimes.) She was wonderful and both girls played well with her and no one whined one time about being left out.

And...Little Bit must have forgotten to pack her tics because we spent the entire weekend tic-free. She fell asleep Saturday night without a peep. Tonight wasn't bad either. Oh, it's been nice.

Now it's good to be back home and dive into our regular life again. My parents keep too many sweets around and I ate too much. Now I'm back home where if you want something sweet you can eat a graham cracker (or 3) with honey on it.

I have my frugal grocery list made for the week, plans to get car repairs done, hopefully picking up Sweetheart's glasses this week, and school to get done. And after a pleasant weekend away, I feel ready for all of it.

Hope you had a good weekend too! See you tomorrow!


  1. but the question is do my kids annoy you? Or maybe it is how MUCH do they annoy you? Or do I not want to know? :0)

  2. Only one of your children has ever annoyed me and she was annoying you that day too so it's OK! :) haha! And as for my own children, it's not "do they" but "how quickly". That determines how the day will go! :)

  3. I laughed when I read the first paragraph because around here, the ULTIMATE dress-down when someone is in need of correction is: "You are acting like 'other people's kids'!" When they hear that, they know Mama is in no mood to be messed with. ;~)


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