Trying to get Away
The hubs came home last week and asked me if I wanted to get away for the weekend for Valentines. I was thinking to myself what was up, when he said there is an indoor farm show in Kentucky that he would love to go to. I smiled to myself, it was beginning to make sense now. We started trying to plan what day we would leave, who would drive us to the airport, and which kids were going where. Then I remembered that the buddies were having their first Valentine Party at preschool and would be so disappointed if they missed it. Wyatt was also looking forward to exchanging Valentines with his class. Then the kicker, Levi had a Valentine dance Friday night at the middle school. We had it down to the wire and ALMOST worked everything out, but had no ride for the buddies to get to and from their party. The decision was made to wait until another year. So, a few days later the hubs came in and asked if I thought we could go to Wyoming to see his brother, when the big boys go to Washington. We started making plans, then I saw that the buddies have a field trip on that Friday. One that they have been waiting for for weeks, because they get to ride the bus on this one. The hubs looked at me and asked, "Is everything we do dictated by the kids activities now?" "Pretty much", I replied laughing.
