Peach State says: It’s Finally Here…Friday!

It’s Here! It’s Finally Here…Friday! The day we all love to dream about Monday through Thursday! This Friday is unique for several reasons…Let me explain!

There is only one more Friday left on my son’s school calendar…8 days until school is out!
This is the Friday before Mother’s Day
This is the Friday before my hubby’s birthday…and NO! He is not old!
This Friday means only 2 more Fridays until vacation…( Yipee…Joy…Yea Me…) “Oops…Sorry!”
This Friday means only 3 more Fridays until VBS (Vacation Bible School)…I will need to fit in some planning before I leave town.
And to push the proverbial envelope…10 more Fridays till my birthday. “No it is not on the 10th Friday…”

Excitement is beginning to set in as “General Mom” puts on her “strategic planning and preparation” hat and climbs in her tank with a huge-oversized-coffee-cup. “Nothing is getting in my way…so move or be run over!” I have started the various lists and have been planning a soft itinerary. My poor phone and pad are getting a real workout as I bounce back and forth as one is often on the charger while I use the other.

I am not that bad…”I don’t think!” Let’s call it “OEADHD” (Overly Excited Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder)

My youngest is leaving to go on his first official “Youth Retreat” with our church on the 27th. My incredible-dear-sweet-loving-hunk-of-a-husband informed me the other night of another retreat…ours! Here is the biggie!

BY OURSELVES…NO KIDS…JUST US…

It has been a long time since we have done this. “Did I mention it had been a long time…12 Years! Told you it had been a long time. The rest if the family…my 3 older sons will be staying home…working…manning the fort…taking care of my Precious Princess. Hopefully they will not kill each other. Hubby and I will be visiting two locations neither of us have ever been. “I have been to one location but was only on the outskirts never the tourist part of the city.” I will not spoil the surprise but reveal it while on vacation.

Spoilers! No amount of arm twisting will force this information from my lips…don’t forget I am in “General Mom” mode and am driving a tank.

What am I doing?…I have more planning to do and lists to make and errands to run! “I’m off!”

Have a great day!

Finally Friday!
Now that I have finally reached Friday…schools were closed due to weather and all four boys are home.

Bad weather
Finished monthly grocery shopping
Put groceries away
Divided meat into freezer bags
Feet up and covered by a blanket
Only having to entertain one son…whew!

Things could definitely be worse…but the power is still on! Yea!

Well the movie is back on…gotta go!

Have a great day!
