I can't believe it's December again. Wasn't it just summer? Last week was Thanksgiving and kind of a crazy one-Larry and I were to drive our two grandkids (our middle daughter's kids) out to Tallahassee so their aunt (our oldest daughter) could take them home with her to Niceville for a couple days. Our middle daughter is the only one of the three with children and Dawn likes to borrow them once in a while. LOL Larry and I had decided that we didn't want to drive home in the dark so we reserved a motel room just up the street from where we always meet for dinner (Cracker Barrel) planning a quiet evening and a nice morning drive home. WELL, my husband came home from work on Tuesday evening with the flu-up all night to and from the bathroom which means I didn't sleep well either. Wednesday afternoon when it was time to leave he decided he definitely wasn't going to be able to sit in the car for a couple hours so the kids and I went without him. After dinner I got the motel room with the king size bed to myself and after a small continental breakfast I drove myself back home in time to jump right in with our youngest daughter preparing dinner-ham, turkey, devilled eggs, mashed potatoes, gravy, corn, green beans, pumpkin pie and chocolate pecan pie. I had just a small plate of food along with some pie and Larry even managed a small amount. Of course, then I was the one up several times during the night but fell asleep about 4 and slept until 3:30 Friday afternoon. That has never happened before! I spent Saturday just kind of sitting around trying to find some energy-didn't eat much of anything all day. What a way to spend a birthday!! Sunday morning we skipped church bt I went in the afternoon because help was needed with the money counting. That got me out of the house which helped me feel a bit more normal. Today was back to the gym for water aerobics so everything is good again. Bonus-I didn't spend a dime shopping anywhere.
Oh, yeah, apparently our granddaughter had a touch of the flu or just a reaction to something she ate as she managed to throw up at Aunt Dawn's. Guess Dawn remembers why they have no kids.
