I have been gone for the last few days - and without notice too! Sorry about that. I thought I would write while I was here at my parents, but I have been running around like crazy instead.
I spent one night playing games with one of my best friends, just being silly girls. Mostly we just had "girl talk". A wonderful way to spend the evening.
The next day I spent helping another of my best friends set up Skype for while her husband is deployed, learn a little about sewing to keep her busy while her husband is deployed and create a blog to vent her feelings... while her husband is deployed. Can you guess what is going on in her life right now???
Since she is a new blogger, I am sure she would love a comment or two to encourage her. Drop by and say hi.
Today I was at a wedding. Really, this was the whole point of my trip up here. A girl I have known since we were 9 or 10 was married today, to a man I hadn't met. She and I are only Facebook friends now - time and distance and busy lives have kept us from keeping in touch as much as we would like. However, those years worth of friendship and memories are strong. Even though we rarely talk now, it was so very wonderful to be there today, to celebrate this moment with her. I enjoyed the few moments I had to speak with her new husband, and so very much loved getting to hug her in her beautiful dress and cry just a little.
Mom took Emilee and I out to see Leap Year after the wedding. (cute movie, btw) Dad picked my children up from the babysitter... and here is where it gets fun. Canaan ate something that didn't agree with him, and threw up, three times, while I was gone.
I am so very glad that my dad loves me... and my children!
Now we just have to hope he is well tomorrow, because we are supposed to meet Andy at the half-way point between here and home. I certainly don't want to spend hours in the car with a throwing up six year old. Especially when we have planned to make several fun stops along the way!
I'll let you know how it turns out! For now, I better get some sleep.
