I am on my second cup of coffee this morning. I anticipate feeling not so great in about one hour because of it...but I imagine that the next hour will be full of productivity, and right now, that is worth the jumble of jitters I may become later on. The past five days of my life have been spent in cooler temperatures with some really beautiful people. First was a romantic get-a-way with my hubs up to Flagstaff for a day...followed by a few wonderfully FULL few days in Pine with my sister Cory and her bundle of love, Brody. How much do I love having the opportunity to trade a few massages for a couple of nights at my friend Karyn's cabin? I love it. I do. I'm all about bartering...especially if it involves a road trip for me. We loaded up the kids and headed out on the Beeline...ready for adventure and escape. We were not disappointed. It was a fulfilling few days for me...and I have plenty of wonderful photos to share...as soon as I can grab another USB cord (a certain 10 month old around here decided that ours would make a great teething toy)...or another computer to bum a few minutes and space off of. Oh...and the trip to Flag...I have much to share about that one too. Fall DOES exist!
But for now, I am staring at the bags to be unpacked and the laundry to be washed and the dishes that were left to be done that never did get done because we came home to a very sick daddy...so, oh yes, there is also some major cleaning to do...trying to rid this house of the flu bug. And all of that must happen in accordance with the naps that my children may or may not take...because we are all a bit jumbled after 5 days of unique rhythm and play...some of us are seriously tired and don't want to come to terms with it...so I think that I have my work cut out for me. Maybe I will go brew some more coffee.
