It was good to just get away for a little bit. I get caught up in being a mom and feeling like I have to do everything. It's good to know that the boys are actually fine while I'm away and I come back feeling like I can handle their "stuffed animal talk" more easily than before. I enjoyed my time reading, going for a couple runs, visiting with friends, and even going to some garage sales with my parents....a "must do" on Saturday mornings in the Trettin house.
I didn't even mind waiting for the planes. Both times I was one of the last ones called and just barely made it on. But it beats driving 7 hours by myself! I literally was on the second to last page of my book when the plane landed in L.A. on Monday. I almost just sat and let everyone get off while I finished!
So now I am back HOME and got to enjoy watching the inauguration this morning in Kevin's classroom with Zach on my lap. I loved that all the classrooms had the t.v.s on this morning. The kids didn't quite enjoy it as much as watching a Spongebob episode, but I know Kevin's teacher kept pointing out to the kids what a historic day this was!
