Back from my "vacation". Trying to unpack now....well, not RIGHT now. Right now I am procrastinating about unpacking hence my entry. lol
I am a true believer that everything happens for a reason. My vacation part of this trip (rafting & ATVing in WVa)was nixed as the Mister obtained a herniated disk in his back on the 4th of July. This means the main reason for our trip was canceled but we went to visit people anyway. The "to-be" part is I don't think my Mom could have handled my girls while we were in the backwoods for 2 to 3 days. While around my old stomping ground, I tried to escape for a couple hour increments for little mini-mental vacations and she would call me complaining about them for various reasons such as not eating dinner. Well, when you oblige each of them with 2 McDonald's milkshakes and endless popsicles I don't expect them to eat dinner especially the 2 year old. Nor would I expect them not to be bouncing off the walls. Why ask me to discipline them when you will get mad at me for making them unhappy. In a restuarante this trip she actually told me not to stifle the toddler squeals and screams that could easily shatter a wine glass as they were "happy noises". Seriously???? Where was THIS lady when I was growing up?
