(Get ready to throw your rotten tomatoes)
It was a lovely weekend. All that free time and all that peace and quiet. It really was awesome. Of course I tried to pack WAY too much into one weekend. Too much cleaning, too many errands, and not enough sleep. But it was still very nice. Unfortunately I don't have any girlfriends in the area to go out with, but I did get to watch three chic-flicks (yes, including Twilight again) that I've been wanting to see. It was nice to be able to sit back and relax and do as little or as much as I wanted to. But it did feel a little odd.
And boy was I excited when I saw my guys pulling up to the house on Sunday afternoon. It was a very good feeling. All my boys running at me telling me how much they missed me. And such a relief to have them all home safe with me again. I can't tell you how many horrible things I imagined as they drove the three hours to and from the cabin.
I spent the rest of Sunday snuggling with the boys and trying to pamper Todd, who really does deserve the "Husband of the Year" award. Not only did he do a fabulous job with the boys but he was fighting the worst cold he has ever had. He actually had a temperature of 102.3 for the whole weekend. I swear I have never known his temp to go over 98.9. He never gets fevers. He was SICK. And he didn't even complain or try to make me feel guilty. What a man!
And guess what else!
I'm going away for a "ladies only" trip tomorrow. My girlfriend and I have been planning it for the last few months. We used to be HUGE NKOTB fans when we were younger and when we heard they were going to be having a concert in the area we decided to go. You know, for old times sake. And since the venue is two hours from her house and one hour from mine we thought we should bite the bullet and make it a whole day affair complete with shopping and an overnight stay at a lovely hotel! Woohoo!!!! I can't remember the last time she and I got to hang out without the kiddos. I am so excited I can barely contain myself. Shopping, eating, relaxing in the hottub, a concert, and quality time with my bestest friend. So exciting!
And don't you worry. Todd is getting payback (although he does go on quite a few hunting trips every year) at the end of the week. He splurged and bought he and his dad tickets to the Brewers home opener game for Friday. See? It is a win/win all around.
Now I've got to run and tie up a million loose ends before I leave tomorrow. I'll be sure to post pics on Wednesday when I get back. Hope y'all had a fabulous weekend!
(Okay. Go ahead and launch those tomatoes)
