I am HOME! In the words of Phil Robertson, I am happy-happy-happy.
I got home yesterday afternoon from my three weeks of constantly being on the road. It’s all behind me now and the sun is shining, the pool is beckoning and last night my pillow was so glad to see my weary ol’ head.
Today I am going to take my 2 boys, ages 10 and 12, out for some much needed Mommy time. I feel a toot-filled, burp-heavy day coming on. Why boys think that is so funny I have no idea, but just the mention of underwear sends them into peals of laughter. I guess I should be thankful that all 9 of my children don’t want to have long, deep conversations about their hair. Today all I have to think about is how to get from one place to another while the boys point out the window at billboards and try to figure out which one is the biggest.
My diet is going well. I am not finding it as hard as I expected to find things to eat. Once I allowed my mind to accept that there was something out there besides fried chicken with cream gravy I realized that I didn’t have to starve. I actually snacked on dehydrated okra & peas while I drove and satisfied my Sonic needs by buying a whole bag of ice and adding it constantly to my lemon water.
I hope I can still keep my Southern Girl ID card after all of this.
Once I recover from the trips and get a few naps under my belt, I have some painting projects to work on. Plus I took a few things that my mom was getting rid of that I am going to makeover for my house. It’s not that her stuff really needs making over, in fact it’s mostly too nice for my junk filled home. I need to burlap it up a bit.
Have a great day!
