We just got back on Monday late afternoon from a weekend in Raleigh, NC leading worship. We leave again on Friday to lead worship for a beach retreat, which I am totally STOKED about, by the way! But there are a few more things that need to get done before the retreat...like a trip to VA. We are dropping the kids off at Meme and Poppie's house and picking up all the sound equipment for the camp on Wednesday and coming directly home on Thursday so we can leave Friday for the retreat. That would mean 1 day at home!
Here's where the blessing part comes in...Josh just took off with the kids all by himself, leaving me to our house ALL BY MYSELF! Not only do I get to cut out 7 more hours in the car, which at this point in my pregnancy is a blessing in itself, but I get to scurry around in my house, alone, without any interruption, to "nest" and sleep and exercise and scrapbook and get things done. I may even go run some errands now, during a naptime or sneak some ice cream after 8pm which is nite-nite time=)
I am SO excited! Don't get me wrong, I absolutely LOVE my family and my kids, but when was the last time you were in your house all by YOURself?
