I should be unpacking, getting some laundry done, paying bills...etc. But I missed you all, so I am taking a minute to say hello, i have returned from my extended vacation.
My 'sisters vacation' started off great, then I got sick....all nite in the bathroom sick, and not from any fun stuff....big YUCK!! We had a family BBQ the day before i left, and just about everyone there got this 24 hour bug. It was not food poisoning since some got it after a day, and some after a week. My sister and I enjoyed our time together, and hope to do it again!
My time with my mom was bittersweet. She is getting frailer, but still has some spunk. WE talked a lot, looked at old ...and new pictures....and took a few outings to see people she has not seen in a while. When my 4 grands arrived they all had great big hugs for 'grand-memere', and the smile on her face matched theirs.
The last 10 days were spent with my kids and grands. The weather was great, so we had lots of beach time, introduced the two 'older' girls to the fun of a camping overnight, had a birthday party at an amusement/water park, went to a zoo, ate lots of delicious seafood...and made lots of long lasting memories. We are a fortunate family.
The only downside, its been a long three weeks missing Master. We have been in touch constantly, and i managed to mostly stay on His good girl list.
I hope to catch up with all of you over the next couple days...it is good to be back!
