In a mere week we will be on a plane bound for the Sunshine State. The short of the long is that the whole fam is heading to the USA for a visit.
Last week about did me in- we all passed around respiratory ailments and the worst went to me. In addition to our sickness we had 6 workers tearing the majority of our house walls apart and repairing them due to damp damage (very common here due to the way homes are built).
My house was a complete mess….I had to find alternate sleeping arrangements for the kids as their rooms were among the ones being torn apart. We couldn’t go in our living or dining room so eating and entertaining the kids became a chore. I woke up last Thursday feeling so anxious and overwhelmed I cried and the day had only just begun.
Well God is faithful, I had lots of help in putting my house back together, my sickness is fading and my spirits are high once again. But I will say the USA trip provided my silver lining and its sights helped pull me through!
The hardest part about coming back is knowing I can’t see everyone that I would like! Other than a short trip to Tulsa the kids and I will remain in Florida with my family (my parents and my brother and his fam are there). Rich will travel a bit more but a large part of this trip focus is to spend time with family and have some R&R. We have not seen my family in 2 years so are ready to have some fun with them. Also it has been a great season/year for us but a long one at that and we need a break. I am not ashamed to say we are taking one!
So to all my blogging friends (new and old) in the Tulsa area let’s start planning a get together
