Road Trip!

So I've had a good week so far & I'm so glad!  When you become a littlebit old you realize that a week that's all good is a good week indeed :)

I changed my work hours to second shift and so far there is a whole lot of loving it going on.  No more 5:00 a.m. wake-up calls for me, and believe me, with The Insomnia that is also a reality in the life of a littlebitold person, the whole sleeping-in thing is another bit of the GOOD.  The only downside so far has been how it has knocked my bloggy schedule all out of whack.  I'm still working on that, but I'm thinking I may loosen up just a touch about the time-of-day portion of my bloggy Master Plan.  We'll see.  How do you feel about it?  Did you prefer me to be all finished first thing in the morning or do you think it balances out in the end?  I'm a little mixed-feeling-ish in this regard.

Before I say another word, take a look at this sweet boy.  Can you stand the wonderfulness of that little smile? :)

(happy) sigh.

Bright & early on Monday morning I embarked on a mini ROAD TRIP to see my sweet babies.  Oh how much fun to walk through the door to all the happy-happy that is my two tiny tots :)  I am so ashamed to report that I have no photos of my girl.  I was much too busy either jiggling Owey with both hands while swaying from side to side or playing silly games with Audge to take my usual mediocre pictures.  Audrey is SO FUNNY and makes me laugh all. the. time. when I'm with her.  She's starting to talk more conversationally, which is a hoot :) 

As is our tradition when together, after visiting for a couple of hours Kate and I loaded up the kiddos and headed to the mall.  We stopped at TGIFridays for our favorite desserts (vanilla bean cheesecake anyone?)  After that we wandered the mall a bit and let Audrey run around fearlessly in the play area for a while.  The funniest part of the whole mall adventure (for ME, anyway!) was the long, cold trek back to the car with Audrey sobbing for the "CAR PLEASE!" over and again.  It might have been the most polite tantrum I have ever witnessed.  Katie just kept lugging her to the car, thanking her for using her manners while hollering her head off.  (Btw - she wanted the car-strollers in the mall, not the actual car-car.)

Hysterical.  hehe.

Anyway, I donned my froggie jammies which made the aforementioned girl-child very happy and eventually went to sleep.

The end.

Just kidding, kind've.  I headed home the next day about lunch usual drove the first 45-mile stretch wanting to cry because I had to LEAVE! my FAMILY! over it...bought some Loreal Preference at the CVS...and settled in on the couch to work my shift. after changing into my jammies.  Good times.

The rest of the week I've been working and eating salad.

Like I said when I started this informative chat, a good week indeed.

Thanks Melanie :) Isn't he somethin'?

- - and NOTHING is wrong whatsoever with the Froggy Jammies, hehe. I find it interesting how the happy-happy seems to just appear with the donning of the whimsy ;)

Hope your weekend is great!
