I've Earned It!

Grove Park Inn, Asheville, NC

If I did not have this delicious treat awaiting for me in a few day, I'm not so sure I'd be thinking A Beautiful Life in the dawn of this early friday morning!  

I'll have to confess that this week has been a doozy to say to say the least.  You really don't need to hear all the sordid details.  I'm sure most of you were in the same "am I really going to survive this?" mode yourselves.  

What happened to my visions of a blissful happy summer where we would all just have fun splashing and laughing our days away?  Do people really do that somewhere?  I'd like to meet you if so?  

Perhaps it is just the 14th day of very itchy poison ivy, or the fact that I've been alone with 2 kids of my own and my newphew going on  6 days, maybe it is the prednisone that is whacking me out?  It is all to blame as I sit here having my pity party at 4:45 am.  I was trying to sneak in some alone time....but guess what?  Someone just found me!  My 7 year old just busted me on my computer in the dark.  Mom guilt sets in! 

To wrap up this Beautiful Life Post that Melissa at the Inspired Room has given us on friday's, I will say that I'm blessed to have something to look forward to in the end of this weekly trials. Hubby will return this weekend and we will take off for a birthday trip to reconnect.  This year I am so excited, we area going to stay at the Grove Park Inn in Asheville, NC!   It is a special time of year for us.  Our birthday's are the 17th and 18th and we always spend that special time together!  

Prayers to all!

I too was up at 4:45... Drake wanted to remind me that he was in his room all alone and that I shouldn't think I was going to sleep in just becaues Grant & Shane were out of town. Maybe next time I'll take my laptop in his room while we rock!!! I have no Mommy guilt about that!
p.s. Happy Birthday, can't wait to see pics and hear how it ALL went!
remember, this too shal pass!
