Friday Night Leftovers

  • First - if Erin is reading this - thanks for the comment! I'm so glad you found me! Erin is my buddy from my very first job out of college. We shared an office (back in the days before cubicles). She rocked. I assume she still does.

  • Everyone (except Aaron) seems healthy again. Hurrah!

  • Work was looking like a huge disaster was going to happen - and then we found the fix and this week has just been getting things done. Love it when that happens.

  • The fact that work is somewhat 'smooth sailing' means that I'm going to be able to have a mini-vacation next week

  • My brother is visiting with my identical twin nieces. They are 13. I haven't seen them in over 3 years.

  • Aaron is staying home, and I'm taking the kids to meet them all (including my mom) at the cabin. My plan is to work during the day(at a friends cottage where they have Internet. Our cabin is still in the '70s. We only have a phone. Which is nice sometimes, awful at others) while everyone plays with my kids.

  • This plans has a few flaws... biggest being that Cam and Maggie have never met my brother and my nieces. Second biggest is that after lunch, I'm thinking my brother is going to be drinking a case of beer. Fingers crossed it works out.

  • We'll stay at the cabin until Weds, and then back here on Thursday - when we'll go to the Bolton Fair! My brother lives in Florida, so the girls have never been to a real country fair.

  • And then they leave on Saturday, where I'm thinking we'll send them off at a local balloon festival.

  • This week, I've gotten my immunizations for my India trip, and the outfit that I'm wearing to the wedding! Exciting!

Sounds like a fun week in store! Have a blast and don't work too hard!

Sounds like a lot of fun.

The good news about the child care day where you need to work? You, uh, won't be there to witness it if it's got bad moments. I'll bet you Cam and Maggie will be fine though.

Funny, I haven't been to the Bolton Fair in almost 10 years. It's all because I got a WICKED CASE of poison ivy from sitting on this cleared hill watching the horse pulls. Needed steroids and everything. I've never really forgiven the fair for that. :)

Have a GREAT time!

I bet thirteen year old nieces are handy to have around toddlers. Have a great trip!
