tuesdays for tea 09.05.19

l yimg comHow on EARTH did it get to be Tuesday all over again??

We JUST got back from yet another road trip – through the Canadian Rockies to Calgary, Alberta and back. Daughter A was playing the volleyball Nationals there, while daughter B was in Team BC (summer provincial games) tryouts back at home. Both gals did awesome!

The Rockies are beautiful! I kept taking pics of silly mountains with snow and ice on them. We stopped in a few little towns along the way and got to know our province just a little bit better. Found what seems to be a great water-ski lake(s) (Shuswap), a tiny town with an awesome restaurant (Golden), and a Whister-esque puttering shoppers paradise (Banff). And in only 10 driving hours each way…

We caught up with my cousinS G+J for a bit, the boys got to swim in a POOL every day (to them that IS the holiday) and we even went to the Calgary Zoo!

And just like that we’re plunged back into day-to-day life. We’re supposed to all travel to Seattle this weekend right after B’s grad prom for more volleyball (B’s turn), but decided JUST ME would go because everyone else just wants to stay home. Just me! I get a tiny holiday! I get ONE WHOLE night’s sleep away from Boo! I get to browse the outlets without interruption! I get to chat with other Mom’s without having to constantly leave to chase a child! Yippeee!

Well, no real plans for this week but to stay home as much as possible. Tt has a new book on Vikings we’ll get through, a new puzzle on Knights to do and we’ll TRY to get to his “movie-making” project he keeps asking to do.

Wishing everyone a nice, relaxing week too!

  1. Isn’t it funny how standards for a “great time” change when we have kids! You’ll have a great weekend I’m sure. :)

  2. Mindee : LOL! Yes, now a ‘great time’ is a room to myself to sleep in. Woot woot. Soooo different than my teens idea!

  3. Wait! A whole night’s sleep? What is that and will you please explain? It sounds magical!

  4. Christina : Oooooh, just had one! A whole night’s sleep! In Boo’s bottom bunkbed, while he slept with Hubby and woke up 3 times ;-). It was sweet. I’m excited for another whole night’s sleep in Seattle!!
