I'm Hiding at My Mama's House

The husband left for work at 4:30 this morning and when I got up 2 hours later I already knew it wasn't going to be climb mountains kinda day. I slowly scanned all the things that needed to be done ASAP. Gave thought to what could wait until tomorrow and then decided to make everything wait until tomorrow. I quickly packed our stuff and headed east. A whole 30 minutes later my mama was holding Jack and I was reading a novel. Bliss! 

Did my healthy eating happen? Big fat NO! My mama cooked chicken, pinto beans, squash, taters, and cornbread. My daddy literally went and picked the squash, the onions we cooked with them, and the taters right before they got cooked. I was miserably full but oh how it was good. To top it all off we had chocolate cake for dessert. Just can't beat that!

But just wait, to top it all off my mama has Jack sleeping with her so I can have a full nights sleep in the big guest bed. Oh it is just so wonderful that I HAD to share how happy I am in this moment. Belly full, baby is taken care of by the best thing ever, and I am going to get some sleep.....ooohhhh weeee I am sure excited.

Just feeling blessed and lucky and happy and wonderful and whatever other happy adjectives that sweet Pioneer Woman can think of. I'm feeling it. Good night folks-I'm off to do some Olympic gold sleeping. 


  1. Yay for a full night's sleep! I'm doubting if I will ever have one of those again. :( glad you got to spend some time with family, that's the absolute best!
