I probably won’t be around much this week. Mollie got home Saturday – she did love the kitchen, and I love having her home! This morning I’m headed to the airport to pick up LJ and Colin. On Thursday evening we’re having Nick’s family for a cookout so that LJ can visit with them. Then Saturday is our family reunion that I host every year, well for twenty-eight of the last twenty-nine years anyway. I think there are between twenty-five and thirty coming. We’ll have folks coming from six different states one cousin and her husband are traveling 3,000 miles to be here.
So I’ll be busy with family all week. I have no doubt you will survive quite nicely with out my amazing wit and wisdom out here. Whether or not I’ll survive without you guys – now that’s another question. I LOVE my kids and my whole extended family. I love playing the mom roll, sister roll, niece roll, and cousin roll – all these rolls are comfortable and I enjoy them. But when we don’t have much privacy and I don’t get any chance to read or write, PK starts to drift away.
But Sunday evening the relatives depart, Mollie heads back to camp, the reno is finished – a little time to relax, a little time for me and maybe even some writing? Oh heck no! The first day of school for teachers is MONDAY, yep, this coming Monday. I am taking off the first two teacher days. Monday I’ll be taking the boys to the airport and Tuesday, well, I need Tuesday for me. And then it’s back to the grind as the school year takes off. Don’t forget me and I do plan to have a new Fantasy Friday for you. But for the moment, deep breath and here we go!
