Good News

I'm feeling rather blessed these days.  The first bit of good news rolled in in the form of our offer being accepted on this house.  Cool.  Given my track record this year with moving (it will be 4 times in 12 months after this one...), I will be so happy to unpack for the last time.  

The next bit of good news comes in the form of a vacation for Patrick and myself.  We're thrilled to have some time to catch up, have an entire conversation uninterrupted, and sleep without a 3-year-old kicking us at night.  

It's not so bad for the munchkins either.  Tatum gets a special trip to Nana's house, and Chase gets a special trip to Gran and Henry's.  Divide and Conquer.  

Hopefully we'll all come back refreshed, with a new appreciation for our family unit.  

I considered not bringing my laptop along, but I think I'd miss you all too much.  So I'll be catching up on your stories as the vacation commences on Friday!

Oh my gosh!!! A house like that in SD must make you a multi-multi-quadility millionaire!!! Clearly you aren't a teacher married to a seminary student! :)

I love it!!!!!!!!!

and a trip without kids? Do they exist???? A night without kids? Does THAT exist??? LOL!

Lucky you! Can't wait to read/see more!

Trish said...

I can't wait to try to spoil Chase as much as Nana will be spoiling Tatum... if that is possible. :-)

Kristen said...

Yea for you!!

So glad your offer was accepted! That is so awesome.

And how do you top that? With a vacation ALONE! Ooooo, you lucky, lucky girl!

May you enjoy every peace filled moment and come back even more recharged. :)
