I’m sorry I haven’t blogged in a few days.. I have been itching to, but completely indulging in relaxation while in Virginia… Little to no cell phone/MacBook use was heavenly!!
Here I am again, and I have many blogging ideas on my mind (they are always popping up!) but some advise I received told me not to be so “advice-y” .. “punny”, I know! So I decided to on this one I will just share my life, or at least the last few days of it- enjoy!
Friday: My Mom took Mitchell, Madeline, and I to the MEM Airport for our flight to Virginia. Lenny’s in tow, we were ready for a 1.5 hour flight, a 2 hr layover, and another almost 2 hour flight!
My favorite part was getting to give M his big gift– 26′ Vizio for his dorm room next year! He adored that thing & I heard over and over, “Hey! Ya’ll know I got a TV?!” Precious.
Sunday: Sadly, about 2 am M woke me up telling me he had thrown up 😦 So sad, we got him a drink and went back to bed, thinking it was a one time thing. Little did we know, it was the beginning a a 24 hour stomach bug (+ 24 for me, + 24 for madeline). Luckily, he toughed it out enough for a full day of shopping! Don’t worry, we took lots of breaks- He’s a trooper!! We headed to Pop’s Diner for dinner, but were sad to see they were only open for brunch on Sundays!! Back to the house for pizza and lots of rest!!
Monday: We had big plans- Panera Bread (Grand Opening!), Ice Skating, and Dominic’s. Ahhh… To bad we are as slow as Christmas when getting ready and ended up skipping Panera and going straight for skating! Exited to report I didn’t fall even once!! I went in with the worst expectations… Madeline and M agreed when saying “You’re definetely gonna fall, a bunch.”
Tuesday: Unexpected wakeup call at 7:30 am… the need to throw up!!! TMI- I know. I spent the whole day in bed, barely moving a muscle. A cancelled nail appointment, 8 saltines, 3 bites of applesauce, 4 sierra mists, and 36 hours later, I was stomach bug free- FINALLY! I have never had a day like that in my life!!! YUCK!! And Poor Madeline got it after me.
Wednesday: Time for me to head home on my first flight alone!! We got up in time to pack, have lunch at Baker Street with Brenda, shop together in Newport News, and read/drink coffee at Barnes and Noble. Sad to go, but excited to see my momma/daddy/matt/j/etc & ready to have M back in Collierville! (3 days!!!)
If I don’t see you/blog before Sunday, Merry Christmas!! Don’t forget the reason for the season. Jesus Christ, born of a virgin Mary, to save us.
P.S. I apologize for picture overload!! “This is my life!” See —>http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0rbMHLDY1pA
