Thoughts of long weekends
This weekend, being Easter, I am reminded of one huge time-saver for us. No family nearby. Easter, Christmas, birthdays, etc are often spent with family which we would love to do and feel very sad that we can't. Especially for the sake of the kids. Sunday dinners and things like that don't exist for us so while the kids are playing with their dad, I work, since we are just at home anyway.
Mr. Mee a Bee works with his family (parents and older brother) six days a week so he's quite glad NOT to see them on his day off. They are not nearby since we moved out of town four years ago.
I completed four bags today. You can see the fabrics I was working on above. Stuff for boys!
That's not all I did today. I participated in the egg hunt this morning. I went to the gym. We decorated our Easter cookies and cupcakes together. We enjoyed our little family meal together. Mr and I watched two hours of American Idol. Our day was good but I still feel sad that we weren't doing more extended family stuff. I'm feeling homesick for the first time in ages.
I'm off to bed shortly but before I close my eyes I will read a few pages of my Book Club book. (maybe boring to you, it's a business book!).
