School has been out for few weeks around here and we have been busy little bees. My son left with my mother two days after they got out, right after his last baseball game. The following weekend we headed up to West Virginia to spend Memorial weekend with my mother, stepfather, and sister and her family. They all recently relocated up there leaving me in north GA with the closest relative being four hours away. So it was really nice to spend several days with them in what one of my friends calls "Twang Town"
We then came home to do some weeding and cleaning around the yard and house. The FedEx lady brought the kids a special treat...Six Flags season passes! So I spent the entire day Thursday convincing my son that he was not afraid of the big roller coasters and that there was a lot more to do than the water slides in Skull Island. My daughter's friend Robyn was sweet enough to sit with Cody for about an hour while Michaela and I rode the Superman roller coaster. This was my first time on it! I absolutely loved it!!
Saturday rolled around which meant I had to take my baby, yes I mean the soon to be 15yr old, to the airport for her annual trip to her Dads. This time it was particularly hard on me. She no longer has to fly Unaccompanied Minor...saves lots of mullah but I don't get to walk her to her gate. So my baby had to walk through security and find her way to her gate at the Atlanta Airport all by herself. I was a nervous wreck!! I sat in my car in the parking garage until her flight left. My daughter was really awesome!! She catered to her mother's needs and text me every step of the way letting me know when she got on the Tram, when she made it to her gate, when the plane arrived and started kicking passengers off to make room for her. She then text me when she landed in Baltimore and again when she landed in Michigan. She laughed at me when I thanked her for being so understanding of my needs!!! How Dare she?!!! LOL
Now I am going to be letting my son go back to Moms for another two weeks! I was originally going to drive him up there, but Lil Sis is going to be down this weekend and said she would take him back with her. Great news for me!!
Now what am I going to do with myself for the next two weeks having no kids in the house and my husband in and out on business. Im throwing a huge party!!! Yes anyone want to join me?!! I plan on repainting my living room hallway, and dining room. And if time permits the main bathroom. I am also going to be looking into new lights for my kitchen. I am really hating the track light that has been there since we bought the house. It does not match anything and the stupid bulbs, which cost almost $8, are constantly burning out. To help me in my search for new lights CSN stores has an array of light fixtures. And they have given me the opportunity to review one of their products. With so many projects going on around my house I am sure to find something from their 200+ stores. So be looking for an upcoming review on something that is so not book related but will be something special to me!
