A brief respite from work and kids.....



While my babies were gone to their grandparents (Brian's parents) for a week, Brian and I had a relaxing dinner at home with my best friend Beth and her husband Chris, and my mom, dad and my brother.

Originally, we were supposed to go out to eat - very rarely do we all have the ability to do that at the same time anymore! But, when I began tallying up our trip to Hershey just a few short days before, I came to the realization that.....


HOLY CRAP WE SPENT A LOT OF MONEY FOR TWO DAYS AND ONE NIGHT AT AN AMUSEMENT PARK!

And then I called everyone and asked if we could eat at my house instead.

Given that the economy is in the toilet, everyone readily agreed that we would be better off sitting on the deck, enjoying fresh grilled steak and veggies, fresh corn on the cob and some delectable desserts.

So that's what we did! Brian and I began a remodeling project in the dining room that afternoon, so we were pretty pooped by the time everyone got there. But, we caught our second wind and had a great time sitting out in the gorgeous night air, talking, laughing and drinking.




Brian was on vacation - the only reason for the unshaven face....

My babies came home on Thursday - several days earlier than planned - they were so home sick without me.
I was just sick without them.
A week is simply TOOO long to be without your loves.
So, shorter trips will be planned to the grandparents house.
They certainly do seem to appreciate me - and each other - a lot more when they come home though.

(Hmmmm - maybe I should rethink that whole "shorter trips" theory...)

Funny you mention the week thing being too long. I, too, just got back from a 5 day (supposed to be a 7 day) trip and man, it was too long without our home base. note to self: 3 days/3 nites max!

An Unheard Lady GaGa Track was Unsealed this morning with no traces of where it originated from.
Some say that it was leaked from GaGa's Record Label's headquarters.
