been back for awhile actually...but we'll get to that.:)
the hardest part about visiting "my girls" is leaving these ones behind.
and daddy too of course...the man who holds down the fort and makes it all possible.
janey super teary and aubrey trying to make "i love you " in sign language
driving out of the driveway that morning was not my favorite part of the weekend that's for sure.
but all it really takes is about 2.3 seconds at the table with my pals and i am good!
visiting one of our favorite restaurants and ordering a drink and my favorite "where have you been all year" salad helps too.
and then after about 4.3 seconds the fun begins...great conversation, easy laughter and absolute perfect memory making moments.
the rest of the weekend we did what we usually do, we
went for bagel runs,
laughed till we cried,
solved the worlds problems,
(and a few of our own,)
made incredibly silly inside jokes,
and had the "best time ever"!!!:)
oh how i miss you guys already!
can't wait till next year!!!:)
i was greeted that evening by the three happiest little girls and hubby a girl could ask for.
as you could see from the previous post, they really didn't miss me all that much!:)
now, our story gets a little...weird...freaky...whatever!
the next morning i wake up and my stomach feels a little bit off.
i just attribute it to a week of eating out, delayed flights and airport food.
but as our busy day of trips to the library, target, laundry, cleaning and junior high registration progress, things just keep getting worse. finally at about 3 i just have to lay down.
and that is sooooo not like me.
well, to make a long agonizing story short, we end up in the emergency room and i end up on the operating table at about 2 in the morning.
the craziness of it all still blows my mind.
thank God i made it home and things didn't go south in fl or worse yet, the airport i was stuck in most of monday!
after some loving care from the best hubby and little nurse maids ever (and wise words and well wishes from friends and family!!!:)) i am finally feeling better!!
not ready to hit the treadmill again quite yet, but at least able to do my share of the work around here. and that to me feels like heaven!
it was so tough on this mama's heart to be gone on my trip and then to come home and to still be "gone". i wanted so much to have aubrey crawl into my lap for stories and dance in the kitchen with the big girls. and with school looming ahead of us that made my time out of circulation even harder....it was certainly not what i envisioned for my final week home with the girls.
but life is like that sometimes isn't it? and ya just gotta roll with it! as miserable as i felt sometimes, i just kept trying to remind myself this is nothing. i mean it was something, but really nothing!!! there are mama's everywhere getting waaaay worse news then this, with recoveries that last waaaaay longer. if they're lucky.
so here i sit, feeling better, and grateful, and happy and ready to embrace our few final days we have at home together before my 6th grader, 4th grader and preschooler scurrying off to school!!!
have a happy day,
