Time Away For Good Behavior


The ladies time off,
All day and overnight too.
A gift from Todd's mom.
*****
A day of shopping,
dinner, and comedy show,
even a few drinks.
*****
Then to posh hotel,
Sleeping in and long showers.
Can't wait to relax.
*****
Todd stays with the boys,
And I'm sure they'll have fun too.
Time with just daddy.
*****
Tomorrow morning I will be heading out with my mother-in-law and my two sisters-in-law for an awesome day of shopping, restaurant hopping, a comedy show, and some relaxation at a posh hotel. It was a gift from Todd's mom to all of us girls for Christmas, and I have been looking forward to it ever since. I can't wait to go shopping where there are some decent stores. We have so few trendy clothing stores in the small town I live in, so going to a couple quality malls will be very exciting. After a day of shopping we will head back to the hotel and relax a bit, head out to dinner, eat, have some drinks, and then mosey on over to the comedy club that I used to hang out at back in my young, hip, and carefree days. Then it is back to the fabulous suite in the swanky hotel to sleep, uninterrupted, for AT LEAST eight hours. It is just so exciting!
Do I have the coolest mother-in-law, or what?

Wow, I thought a cool MIL was an OXYMORON. YOU ARE SO LUCKY Kathryn! I sincerely hope you have a fantastic time - you deserve it.

And what do you think of all this trash talk about Brett going to another team. We don't buy it!

Sandy C. said...

Wow! That sounds fabulous :) Exactly what a busy mom needs to relax and recharge. Your MIL rocks! I on the other hand,...didn't quite luck out in that dept.

Kathryn said...

Okay, y'all. Don't buy into the Favre talk. I don't think that he is talking to other teams. I just don't buy it. I won't believe it until I hear it right from his mouth. I think people are just spreading trash. Grrr.
Yep. I LOVE my MIL. All of my in-laws actually. They rock! Very lucky, indeed!

I'm with MamaGeek. I guess this means you won't be participating on the blog we'll be doing to talk shite about our MILS, huh? :) You are so lucky to like yours. Have a great time.

If I weren't so busy sulking in my jealousy (the only place my MIL might take me would be to a biker bar) I would be much happier for you. You do deserve to have a sweet family-- you reap what you sow! **hugs**

Words To Live By

Be grateful for each new day.
A new day that you have never lived before.
Twenty-four new, fresh, unexplored hours to use usefully and profitably.
We can squander, neglect, or use them.
Life will be richer or poorer by the way we use today.
Finish every day and be done with it.
You have done what you could;
some blunders and absurdities crept in;
forget them as soon as you can.
Tomorrow is a new day.
You shall begin it well and serenely and with too high a spirit to be
encumbered with your old nonsense.

-Ralph Waldo Emerson
