The kids and I have had a very nice 3-day weekend. Saturday started out going to the beach with a couple of the kids’ friends. The water was freezing, but they managed to get used to it and floated on their boogie boards for a while. The boys dug and built sand castles and buried my youngest. I tossed the frisbee around with my oldest for a bit, stuck my toes in the freezing water and ran back to my chair screaming like a girl and then took up my book club read for the rest of the time.
Yesterday, we just hung around the house. It was nice to do basically nothing (well I did do a little bit of work on the computer). We were a little wiped out from the sun.
Today, we went over to a friend’s house whose husband is deployed on a ship. She lives on a lake – I want to move in with her. The view was gorgeous. The food was great (but I had too much and am now paying for it – lots of running scheduled for the week ahead). Her 2 little boys are so cute.
Tomorrow, my husband comes home from his 2-week trip to Florida. The house down there is just about ready for us. It’s strange to think we’ll be moving into it in a month. My husband had a couple of job interviews while he was there and now has to decide the path he wants to take after his military retirement. I will be looking for a job once I get down there. I’m trying to take it one step at a time. I am known to get a little stressed at move time because I think about all that has to be done and I want it all done right. We’ll get there, and it will be easier if I try to remain calm.
