Miscellaneous Catch-Up...

This week has gone by so fast! I can’t believe it’s Friday morning already!

I have actually really enjoyed this week, even though I have been so exhausted! We have not had anything going on in the evenings this week (except for my dentist appointment last night). We have been able to come home and hang out and play and I even cooked a normal dinner (where we sat around the kitchen table together and ate) two of the four nights!

Tuesday night my cousin Josh and his four kids came over to play (they were still in town from the wedding), along with my uncle and my other cousin Andy. It was fun watching all of the kids playing and hanging out. That night my Aunt Ann from New York spent the night and my dad came up to visit with her.

John headed off to the NASCAR race in Bristol yesterday. He goes every year with a bunch of guys and supposedly has a lot of fun. It sounds like hell to me, but I’m glad he gets the chance to get away for a few days. I decided to take the kids up to Michigan to visit my sister so that we weren’t stuck at home in the same old routine by ourselves. I’m only working ½ day today so we’ll be able to leave right after lunch. Luckily I got most of the car packed up last night, so I just have a few more things to throw in and we’ll be off!

It’s kind of funny, I have always heard about “post wedding depression,” but I didn’t experience it because we were starting our senior year in college and I think we just had so many other exciting things going on that there was no time to be depressed. But after my sister’s wedding, I, along with some of the others in the wedding party I have found out, have felt a little down all week. It’s hard when the thing that you have spent a year planning for (and I wasn’t even the bride!) and the last month thinking so much about, is all over. I think that’s why this week has been so great because my mind has been cleared and I can just enjoy my environment instead of constantly worrying about what still needs to be done or what I have forgotten.

Hopefully next week will be more back to normal, although I don’t hold out much hope since Wednesday is Kylie’s first day of 2nd grade and Thursday is Josh’s first day of Kindergarten!

Post wedding depression does make sense to me, but glad you have been keeping busy and with your company it all helps, as will your trip to Michigan.
You do so much and are always in such good spirits, I love it, such an inspiration to all around you.
Wow Kylie in 2nd grade and Josh starting school, they grow up so fast don't they? Soon you will be hearing about all their first day of school adventures, how exciting for them, and you.
Have fun in Michigan and girl take time for yourself and relax.
