We had some fun plans for this weekend. We were FINALLY going to spend a nite in a hotel w the kids, just chillaxing, swimming in the pool, enjoying the big breakfast buffee, then on Sunday go to church and see friends in a different city. Well. This horrible mom decided to come down with a cold!!! Hello??? Bad timing anyone? I felt really bad telling the kids that "Mom is too tired to pack up all the stuff for 9 people!" Hubby was gone helping his brother repairing his car, that decided to come down with something too...
Well. In the end the 2 oldest took the train to the city we had planned on visiting, they are spending the nite with their friends. The rest of us hung out all afternoon, Hubby and I zonked out on one couch each, and getting up some time later, I found a smidgen of energy.
We loaded up the 5 kids in the car, and went to Hop Lop (indoor playground), followed by a late dinner at McDonald's. Coming home the 2nd youngest was already asleep, and now it's only the oldest of the 5 that's still awake.
We had a nice day after all, and again I feel thankful for our "basic" family life.
I got to be with 6 of my 8 favourite people, and again I fell a bit more in love with my Hubby.
Just because it's so hard not to.... :)
I might seem ultra cheesy who is always gushing over him... but why not???
It's been over 15 years now since we started dating, and I know just how lucky I am to have him.
I'm too lazy to climb a mountain to declare my love for him from high up there. I don't have the money to fully show him how much I think of him, so this is a good way to share my feelings.
I love him.
And every day I pray to grow old with him.
Surrounded by our kids and their families.
Cheesy?? Maybe for those that are looking for something else, for those who are not happy about where they are...
But I am. And I wouldn't want it any different.
