Anniversary and Blog Break

I married my best friend ten years ago today and I thank God everyday for such a great husband. I am truly blessed to have him to share my life with. We decided to do something very different this year to celebrate - we are on a vacation without the boys. Dallas is almost 9 and this is the fourth time I have gone anywhere without him. Alex is almost two and I have only left him three times. Thankfully they are with my Mom and I know she will take great care of them....but I am still a nutcase.  I feel guilty and a little lost.

We are in San Antonio, Texas. Our hotel is by the river walk and our room is beautiful. I actually slept all night without having to get up with Alex or the dogs. It has been three years of middle of the night cries and I was exhausted. Then today David surprised me with my first massage and I think I am hooked. We did a couples Swedish massage and it was the most relaxing hour of my life. I wish we lived near a big town. I don't know if our little area even has a place to get a massage.

I was completely shocked by how long it has been since my last post. I have completed a lot of projects but they just haven't made it on here, yet. We installed a sprinkler system in the backyard last weekend and we survived with just a few fights. Tank escaped from the backyard and ended up at the zoo. Thankfully I was able to find him and he is now home safe and sound. School starts in two weeks for just about everyone. Dallas is going into the third grade. Where did the time go? It seems like yesterday when I was walking him into kindergarten. David and I start our college classes again this month. Hopefully we will finish our degrees before Dallas is in college!  And poor little Alex has another appointment with his ENT to find out if he will have surgery next month. They think they can help with his sleep issues but I am not so sure. Maybe sleep is over rated......

It is getting late and I really hate typing on the iPad. I will try to catch up on everyone's blogs this weekend and to catch up my posts soon. I hope everyone is having a great summer!

  2. Happy anniversary, and enjoy your quiet time together. It's so nice to get away, even though that "mommy syndrome" does tend to keep you on edge just a bit. That's normal, I think. Heck, I was like that with my kids, and I'm even that way now with my dogs! Mr. Granny and I are going to take a weekend off to celebrate our 50th in a few weeks, and I'm already fussing about leaving the dogs with a granddaughter for two whole days!

    1. Happy 50th Anniversary! And I thought 10 years was a long time! ;) I am very happy to be home tonight and ready to get in the garden in the morning. My flash light tour was not the same as seeing it all!
