I am soooo sorry I have been absent. I have lots of little excuses, all of which are valid but add up to an almost two week absence! It started getting my family ready for a mini vacation, my husband and I to the beach and the kids off to my cousin's house...then the vacation happened, then it was recouperating from the craziness of being away, then it was feeling really tired and choosing to go to bed early which felt oh so good, and now we are back to getting my family ready to go on another mini vacation! We leave tomorrow, I am so not ready, but wanted to say a quick hello before I say another quick goodbye.
Our beach getaway was to Wilmington, NC, where we discovered that we love chicken nachos (can you believe in 12 years of marriage we had never had those before?) and being away from the kids was really quite nice. I have been accused on this blog (through comments I immediately deleted) that I am a bad mom for leaving my kids on Saturday mornings. Well, if leaving my kids for time away with my husband is wrong, I don't want to be right! We had a view of the river from our hotel room as well as a view of the USS North Carolina battleship. It was perfect. I tried to take lots of pictures I wanted to share with you, but after taking a ton on my phone and deleting them unintentionally, I was too upset to blog about it!
I will be unplugged again for this mini vacation just like I was during my last, so you won't be hearing from me until next week!
I hope you have been yard saleing! I have not been...boo hoo hoo. We have been traveling and then of course there was that whole Hurricane Irene thing that landed here on Saturday morning. I can't wait for the fall yard sale season to begin...I feel like it's about time!
Thank you so much for all of the kind emails (and prayers!). I am sorry I could not respond...it seemed like every time I wanted to come and write the baby would cry or the girls would need me or I would simply not be home. I lost touch with how to post from my phone unfortunately, and have just been off our normal routine. It has been nice being unplugged for a while, though, I must admit. Even tonight as I write this I am stealing a few minutes from my husband who ended up spending a few hours in the emergency room tonight with a friend and her son. Long story, but needless to say it seems like there is never enough time to sit still these days even for 30 minutes.
I hope you have a relaxed weekend where you are, and with any luck you'll find a sale or two worth checking out. I'll see you again next week!
