Day 1 of my respite that is. I feel kinda weird calling it a vacation since I’m not spending this time with my husband and kids.
Anyway, it was horrible sending them off at the airport. I cried.
Then I headed up to my mom’s house, a 1.5 hour drive. I couldn’t believe how tired I was, at 10:30am. I really had a hard time keeping my eyes open. I knew I had been tired, but I think that the presence of the kdis and having to care for them masked some of my tiredness.
So, five minutes after arriving at my mom’s, I took a nap. Then we went to Joann’s and then back home and took another nap. That’s right. I’m starting this off the right way, with TWO naps!
Also got to read some, I started Count of Monte Cristo.
Talked to Shane a little while ago and they arrived safely. Caleb was good, Ana was a bit of a handful, but nothing a dumdum lollipop couldn’t cure. Man. I know that all the rest I will have over the next week and a half will be so good for me, but I really miss them.
