Tomorrow morning bright and early, I leave for Tampa FL with my two oldest children. We will drive for most of the day and arrive close to dinner time for a long weekend with my stepsister and her family, celebrating my niece's graduation and 18th birthday combined. This trip was supposed to include Curt, but some things came up and he is now going to have to stay home with the younger kids. I am bummed for lots of reasons-- a very important one being that now I have to do all the driving. I don't mind driving, but I don't love it either.
Tomorrow is also, incidentally, my birthday. I will be spending it in the car. With two teenagers. Doesn't that sound fun?
Actually, I am looking forward to it. I will enjoy the time connecting with my older two without the noise and distractions of the younger children. Not that I don't adore my younger ones-- but the older ones enjoy the time away, understandably so. They have been counting the days to this trip and are so excited! We will spend a fun, packed-full of special events weekend and then drive back home all day Sunday.
I know my posting has been spotty this week, but I figured that with my extra long entries from last week it would balance itself out somehow. The next few days may very well be spotty as well. I hope to have some fun and exciting posts set up for next week though-- so don't be a stranger!
