Ah, Spring...Break

It's Spring Break this week. Wooooo. Padre!!!!

Kidding. I never went to the beach for Spring Break in high school or college. Now, with 5 year old in tow, I'm heading to the back woods of East Texas.

A better way to describe it would be we're going to spend the week with Granny! Also known as my mom, but Twinkle calls her Granny so, Granny it is. T is so excited. We're going tomorrow and coming back on Saturday. Not sure if I'll post anything. They do have dial-up, so they aren't too far out into the woods. Maybe some artsy pictures of the woods. hmmmm. Well, that would actually have to wait until I got back home because...uh...dial-up.

T said yesterday that she wanted to stay at Granny's until Saturday. Today I received a reminder email about a birthday party on Saturday at 11. It's for a baby at our church who just turned 1. T is actually friends with his sister. I asked her if she wanted to go to the party if it meant coming back Friday instead of Saturday from Granny's. She said, "I'm actually friends with B, not M, so it'll be ok." So, the girl is bypassing birthday cake and a party for Granny time. I can't wait to tell my mom.

I'm not sure what the week will entail, but I do know that it will end too soon. I guess it's a good thing, but I really enjoy spending time with my parents. Whenever we go during the summer, or on Spring Break like this, I always feel like I could spend several more days. Don't get me wrong. Both of my parents have habits that annoy me, but so does pretty much everyone else I know. They are just pretty easy to ignore while I'm there.

Mr. Swizzle left for Cali today and is coming back tomorrow, after T and I have already headed for the woods. So, we both got kisses from him this morning and will see him on Saturday. Who knows what his week will entail. I just hope he remembers to feed the dog and the newt.

Have a great trip - Twinkle has inspired me with her new 'do - may get mine cut this week to a shorter bob - that way the bangs can grow out again -
I love the term "Mr Swizzle" -makes me grin :)

Seems like once you become a parent it should be called Spring WORK.
