You guys know how hard it is for me to blog without pictures. And how I’m technically challenged.And how I must be dying to tell you about my weekend. In pictures.
We’re having technical difficulties over here. And Jeremy can only do so much to assist me over the phone from work. Nevertheless, I had to check in with you, so, here I am.
Hmm. Blogging without pictures. Where do I start? Do I tell you about our weekend without them? Can’t. Just can’t do it.We’ll all have to wait until Jeremy gets home.
Meanwhile, thanks so much for the best wishes for our anniversary. It was a nice weekend. (But I can’t tell you about it ’cause I don’t have pictures). I had lots of thinking time, riding along in the car admiring the fall colors time. Bonding time with my little Son Two. Oh, and time with Jeremy. Of course. 🙂
Funny thing was. I usually almost completely forget I have children on one of these getaways. They’re in such good hands that I don’t really have to worry about them. But this time, I feel like I missed them ’cause they’re older and they actually could miss me, and we’ve become friends (now that they can talk) and I found myself thinking of them throughout the weekend – “Oh, Jesse would love this”, or “If Claire were here, she’d be – “. By the time we were 20 min. from picking them up on Sunday afternoon, I was completely antsy and could hardly sit still in my seat. I practically clobbered them when we got in the door. Thankfully, they actually missed me enough to enjoy me clobbering them. (Jesse used to not miss me at all, and seemed like he’d be fine if we just up and left him at Grandma’s for good, but he was actually glad to see me. So gratifying. ☺)
Now we are all home together and settling back into our routine. The laundry routine, the kitchen routine, the trying-to-keep-the-house-in-some-semblance-of-order routine. And I’m so glad to be back. A few days away was just enough to refresh me and have me asking for more. Amazing.
So, if you follow me on Facebook, you know that I’m taking a month of the old FB. I’ll be completely honest and admit I’m addicted. Not as bad as some, but still – I let it steal WAY too much time. So I’m experimenting and taking a month off. Call it a fast, call it a desperate attempt to find more time in my day for getting ready for the holidays. Call it obedience to some rather clear guidance from God that this was what He wanted for me in this season. Call it what you will, but I call it good. I’ll let you know how it goes. Just be aware, FB followers, I won’t be able to see comments you leave on my page, so come on over to the blog and join the fun. I can bet I’ll be spending a lot more time here in the next month….
I’ll work on getting photos up tomorrow. Goodnight, dear readers! I’ll see you tomorrow. It’s good to be back.
