Hello, dears. Today is my last day of relative normalcy before a crazy two weeks coming up. The insanity starts tomorrow with my bestest friend of, like, 25 years - my sister, really - Leah, coming to visit from Georgia. She and her five year-old son, my love, Randy, will be staying with us for four days. I am BEYOND excited. With the exception of my wedding in 2010, I've never had any friends come out and visit us in Colorado. So yeah, I can't wait. Ack! I'm gonna eat her face. Then on Sunday when they leave, Estie and I are flying back with them to visit my Mama in Florida for a week (more on this later). My mom lives about half an hour from Leah and various other people I grew up with - they straddle the Georgia/Florida line on the east coast. I'll get to see a bunch of very wonderful and important folks while I'm home, and introduce them to Estie, and show Estie the ocean, etc... but I am bummed not to have the hubs and Annie out there with me. Again, I'll explain the weird travel plans later - it deserves its own post. Basically, though, my point is: the next two weeks may provide both excellent material and also zero time for blogging - we'll just have to see! Either way, you'll hear from me. Every day - as promised.
Aaaaand fast forward like eight hours between these two paragraphs (because it has been), and Estie was a psychotic, colicky disaster all night and then the hubs brought an old friend home to visit (for an awesome, magically disappearing two hours)... and wow, it's 12:30 AM. Also known as "time for effing bed."
