What I Did On My Fall Break Vacation

Remember every year at the beginning of school…..the teacher would have you write about your summer vacation? Yea, me too! Today is Monday….also known as…..the day everyone in my family has to snap back to reality and get back to school. Shoot! I could use a day or so to get myself a little more psyched up. Can you sense my back to school apprehension? I figured you could.

It was a great and glorious little break from reality. Four days of sleeping in and hanging out. Just what the doctor ordered (if he was ordering that is). On Thursday, we girls stayed home in our pj’s much of the day. It was hubby’s birthday so I did some cooking and made some of his favorite foods. The evening was spent together eating and watching his choice of movie (yes, we live crazy in our family)…Transformer’s #2. It turned out to be my favorite so far.

On Friday, the plan was to visit IU. We took off in that direction with a box of winter needs for sweetboy and an overnight bag for Ally. She had been dying to spend the night with him ever since he started school. I mean, who wouldn’t want to sleep on a concrete floor of a dude’s dorm room? Duh! She loved the visit. She did tell me the next day that she doesn’t know why Gavin doesn’t come home more…..the food at home is MUCH better! 🙂

We flew back into town that night right at 8:00pm. Just in time for the baby and her peeps to peel out for some fun at Fear Fair. Again, there we sat……”empty nesters”! We made use of our time alone and scarfed down leftover birthday food and watched our favorite Thursday night shows on DVR. Our life is one of sheer envy, I know. Just dream….it could happen to you too. 🙂

We couldn’t just stop the fun on Sunday…..our Colts! Man, they are on fire! 6-0 !! What else can I say? They’re just awesome! After the game we headed out with our “friends” Mike & Amy….(yea I’m using that term loosely) to the Mennonite Church outside of town. They were hosting The Woodsmen in concert. It was a loud gospel celebration! One worthy of ringing ears and happy hearts. We had fun, really!

Now I wish I could just end it there….but that’s not quite all. We thought it would be fun to go to McDonald’s after the “concert” and talk. I really wanted an iced coffee but I knew better than to hype my brain up like that so I settled for a coke. Oh well…I’ve spent the last 11 hours dreaming of sleeping. Yea, my eyeballs were half open all night. I should crash and burn sometime after lunch today.

And that, my friends…is what I did on my fall break vacation. Don’t hate me!
