Off I go...again!

is the beginning of my 2nd week of summer vacation!
I planned two this summer
because I work more over the summer then during the year..
which is alot
as I work full time during the year!:)
So I built in some 'fun' breaks!
I also had planned one vacation with the kids..
and one vacation without!
BUT guess what!!??
I miss my kids!:)
Life is busy!
And while I am blessed as a teacher to see them a lot..
they come with me over the summer..
BUT between camps and fun classes..
and my work..
and time with their dad...
and time with their grandparents...
The 3 people in the world that I WANT to spend my ALONE vacation with??
my kiddos!!

SO, I compromised!!
2 nights at a resort that they have been DYING to go too!!
It will be a complete surprise,
they think they are spending the whole week with grammy and grandpa!!
(I can't wait to see their faces!!!)
Then 2 nights for me at the beach..
My best friend from high school is visiting the state with her kids...
so I will see her!!
and then my sister and friends will come hang out with me
for some 'girl' time...
walks on the beach...
and total relaxing!
OH and hopefully some sun!

And then the end of the week..
I get to come home..
and have 3 days alone...
to catch up, reflect, scrapbook
and just LOVE the life I have!!

These are the moments
I catch my breath
in total gratefulness!!
I never forget what it was to have my wings clipped..
and my choices stolen!
So, every day I remember that no matter what it holds..
the day is mine..
and I can choose to spend it as I wish..
what an amazing place to be!

  3. You have the best attitude!
