My hubby gave me a Mommy Paid-Time-Off weekend this weekend. He was gone on three separate trips this month and thought I’d enjoy some time away from the little people in our house. 🙂
I went to my parents’ house; my brother came up to spend the weekend too. Not sure if many people would say, “Gee, I can do whatever I want this weekend – I think I’ll spend it with my little brother and parents.”
But I would!
We barely made it there. It was the big Texas Blizzard of 2015, you know. But, once we were there we were iced in, so the weekend quickly changed from shopping/movie theater/out-to-eat weekend… into stay-home-and-do-nothing weekend.
Well, maybe not nothing.
A quiet drive alone…
We made it! And home cooked dinner was waiting for us…
Saturday morning Skype session to watch my older brother (deployed) be promoted to Lt. Colonel!
Homemade sleds out of cushions, cardboard and trash bags…
Yes, we’re in our 30s. But who cares? It was fun. Even my parents tried it!
Cookies, coffee and board games…
And a QT drink for the drive back home. 🙂
Thanks, Dusty, for braving the ice with me. Thanks, mom and dad for hosting – and raising a brother that I’d want to spend time with. Thanks, Matt, (and nana and pops) for caring for our kids so I could disappear for a while. I’ve got the best hubby out there.
