Vacation: Day 1

My first day of vacation was spent up in Ft. Wayne, IN with my friend Jan. I can't begin to tell you how much I miss the fact that she lived next door to me all this time! :( It was great to see her and her new pad, though. It was a 2hr. tour up there, and the babies were a little less than thrilled that they were in the car again, but we did ok all things considered. They slept for a good part of the drive, so that made it easier for me. I listened to Dave Matthews' solo album, Weezer's Maladroit album, Evanescene's Fallen album, and Rhett Miller's solo album (he's with the Old 97's if you don't know him...he's kinda obscure). It was's more music than I've listened to in ages! LOL

We got there and let the kiddos play for a bit, while I took the grand tour of the house. It's a very cute house, with four bedrooms and a finished basement. We went to McDonald's for lunch ( you expect me to take children anywhere else? ROFL), and then went to her local scrapbook store and the dollar tree. Then it was back to her house for more playing and chatting. I really miss her a lot!! :(

I left there around 5ish to book it home to see Collin's karate test. He was testing out of his purple belt into his 3rd degree brown belt (the all-brown one). My baby boy is such a big guy! I'm really proud of his determination in keeping up with the karate. I'm hoping that it will help him to be more assertive. He's generally a quiet kind of kiddo, who spends his recess time playing by himself, and who would rather play by himself than to go knock on the neighbor-boy's door...even though I've given him permission. I really worry about him sometimes....cos that's the way I was as a kiddo....and I'm the one on psycho meds, right?

Anyway, as for day two.....I've compiled a short to do list:
1. sew up Collin's costume
2. organize scrapbook shit....again! *sigh* (i really should just never go to Michael's again! ROFL)

Happy Tuesday, all! :)

I know what you mean about Collin being quiet Steph. Dave's boy Simon is 15 and won't talk to anyone at all. He's so very shy and we hope he will come out of his shell soon as he wan't to join the RAF.
