It's been a fuuuuuuull few weeks, and I'm ready for a break.

I used to think that one day hubby and I should open our own bed & breakfast.

I now think that's a dreadful idea.

We've had nonstop company for over 4 weeks now, and I am done. I am sick of having people in "my" space. I want to stagger into the kitchen in the morning to start the coffee without thinking about what I'm wearing. I want to cook smaller meals. And do less laundry.

Don't get me wrong - I've had a lovely time and am truly grateful that we had this opportunity. And I'm also looking forward to another round of company in a few weeks.

It probably doesn't help that all of this coincided with end of school activities, stomach viruses, dental work (ouch!), setting up new electronics, church heartache and work-related craziness for my hubby.

This girl is very ready for a couple do-nothing days. I specifically have one set aside next week because I knew I would be drained. I'm downright giddy over the idea of not making conversation with anyone, and I'm even planning to provide fast food for my kids' bellies that day. Bliss.

Let's cook together when we come - you are not allowed to cook FOR us! And you are more than welcome to stagger into the kitchen for coffee still in your pjs or sweats!

Are the Iversons going to Texas just to visit your family?

I absolutely understand "your" space. Here's my confession: At the beginning of the month when the doctor ordered me to keep the girls home for the month, I was so relieved that I had an excuse to stay home. I don't know how some people can just go, go, go, but like you, I need that down time away from every one. Enjoy your free day next week :)

I'm beginning to think you have a thing for dentists! ;) Aren't you always going?!

Glad you somehow survived and that you have a day off scheduled. It's good to treat ourselves like a real employee that way! :)
