Just a quick word to let you know that I haven't fallen off of the face of the earth.
Rather, last Monday my girls went to spend a week with my parents. Normally when this happens I either get sick (I have a terrible habit of getting very ill when I relax. That started in high school. The most annoying example would be when I came down with a really horrible case of vertigo the first time my parents took both girls for the weekend. Seriously, who gets veritgo?!) or I have to use the time to tackle a big project...like cleaning out the basement.
I am very pleased to tell you that neither one of those things has happened this time. Instead, my husband took the week off as well and we decided that we were going to devote the week to fun.
It's been the best vacation we've had in years.
We are not the kind of people who really enjoy travel all that much. It stresses us out, and quite frankly all of our fun stuff is here in our home. By fun stuff, I am referring to my husband's computers and my crafting supplies. Sometimes I wish we were different, but it is what it is.
Without our children, we've had plenty of time to unwind. We've gone out to eat almost every day (In fact, I haven't cooked once! Yay!), have spent as much time together as we liked, and have also had the alone time we both need so badly. My husband has been gaming to his heart's content - and has also finished another short story. I have made several goals with my knitting, but have also tried something completely different. (Post coming soon!)
Tomorrow I will be picking the girls up so that we can celebrate Father's Day.
And Monday I will be back to regular posting!
