Be Jealous! Be VERY Jealous!!!

My week is CRAZY hectic! I spent the first day with T still home from daycare with a fever, working a crazy earnings day, mother in law at the house keeping Tucker, then birthday dinner for aforementioned MIL, TWO trips to the pharmacy to STILL not have the ear drops I was trying to get, 1.5 hours of folding laundry (WHY do I let it get so out of control?!?), and bed. We tried to get the house presentable as we have one of the hubs's graduated students coming to keep T tonight while I go hear his choir sing at Spivey Hall. (For those of you who don't know, this is a BIG deal and I am VERY excited. It's the coolest concert venue!!!) I also raced around between all that other stuff yesterday to find a black formal that would fit me, I could get hemmed before Thursday evening, and that didn't break my bank. (I got 2 out of 3 and figured that was better than being naked at the thing the dress is for.) I still have to do at least one more load of laundry, pay bills, pack my bags and Tucker's bags, work Three full days' worth of work in the next 2 days (AWESOME!) and get Drew's Valentine's and birthday gifts. SHOOOOOO!!!

Want to know why you should be jealous?

Because on Friday morning, we're taking Tucker here:

Then driving here:

and staying here:

We'll be attending 3 wedding-related parties and a wedding, all of which will involve some of this:

and then Saturday morning, we'll be getting one of these:

and Saturday AND Sunday, I'll get to do this:

past this:


*Of course, this is the first time in her whole life that I will ever have slept in a different building from my sweet baby, so I'm sure there will be at least a little of this (mostly from me):

But I will survive (as will she), since she'll be with them:

*Note to self: Get a more recent (and better) picture of T with Paw and Nona!

And I'll come back relaxed and rested and ready to do it all again.

Love & Shipoopies,

I am very jealous! Enjoy every minute! I've always found that getting away helps me be a better mom/wife when I come home! We all need a little rejeuvination once in a while!

I'm jealous and I'm not a young Mom by any means. I just want to go to A coast. Any coast. Preferably one with sand. I know you enjoyed yours, this is a post comment. Love you.
Uncle Westy out.
