Holding out forThursday....


The question these days seems to be the same no matter where I go.....

"What are your plans for the summer?"

Often I feel the urge to reply...

"Have you HEARD about what kind of year I've had?  I'm diggin a hole under the house and not movin!!"

But that wouldn't be entirely true.  What is true is that we have cancelled most of our "big plans" for the summer.  I mean I haven't even signed my kids up for one summer camp!  I'm exhausted, and have been, since April 26th, 2011!! I'm positive life will get back to normal soon...... very positive.

But this week-well this week I'm holding out for Thursday.  Thursday I'm GOIN'!  My only planned trip of the whole summer.  Recognize this?



While I'm very excited to see THAT, I'm VERY VERY excited to see THIS...

It's been four months since I got me some Momma luv....way too long!

Momma is working in Shelby, NC temporarily so we are driving up Thursday.  We'll go to Biltmore Friday, hang out with Momma for a few days, and perhaps drive home Monday or Tuesday. 

I have always wanted to go to Biltmore.  My love of period homes, dress, movies, photographs,....well, period anything!... has drawn me to Biltmore.  I can't wait to walk the halls and smell the flowers in the gardens.  It's one of the few "things" in the South that I haven't experienced yet.

So we'll make our trek Thursday.  Two days after tomorrow....60 hours away...

Eek!  I better get to the laundry! (She says giddily!)
