A Great Weekend in Michigan!

We filed on Friday!!! Yippeee!!!!

So I got to have a fantastic weekend up with my sister…no worrying about work whatsoever!

We filed shortly after lunch on Friday and I headed home early. We were taking a couch that our friends who moved didn’t want anymore up to my sister, so we got the U-Haul trailer and loaded it up. We got the rest of our stuff packed up at a nice, leisurely pace and left for Michigan around 5:30. With stops and because we were pulling the trailer, we finally rolled into my sister’s place around 9:30.

Her new house is adorable!! It is in a beautiful city, and a beautiful neighborhood, and the inside (minus the painting that desperately needs done) is gorgeous!!

We started right in cleaning up the couch. It was a disgusting mess! But with the three of us working on it we were able to make it look fabulous! We worked until about 2:30 in the morning on it, and then some more the next day.

On Saturday we helped her with stuff around the house and then around 3:30 we headed out for lunch/dinner. After that we went to a park and enjoyed the gorgeous weather! Then my sister was so nice and watched the kids while hubby and I went out. We walked around the beautiful city just enjoying the weather and all the VERY nice cars we were seeing.

Sunday we woke up and did a little more work and then headed out for a fantastic pancake breakfast. After that it was time to pack up and head home. The drive back was much faster as we didn’t have the trailer and the kids slept a lot of the time so we only stopped once. We got back around 7:30 Sunday night.

So now it’s back to work, only at a much less-intensive pace. So hopefully I won’t be as stressed out as I have been the last couple of weeks. One night last week my son asked me if I was angry when I was helping him with something. Before I could answer, my daughter casually said “mommy’s not angry, she’s just really stressed out.” Definitely time to relax, both for my sake and for theirs!

These are the only pictures I took the whole weekend…my sister playing “Go Fish” with the kids:
