Wow this blogging thing is powerful. It has almost been a week and still no dreams about the "guy." This makes me so happy. Well on to better things. For the most part I am in a really good place right now. Joe and I just went away for the weekend with Q & S. We drove separate so Joe and I spent a lot of quality time together b/c it was a 4.5 hour drive each way. I remember the first very time we traveled for an extended period together. When we finally got to PC we were ready to kill each other. Now we talk, don't talk, no problem. This was the first time Joe had ever driven through snow so he was a little on edge about that, but he did great and we got home safe and sound. As horrible as this sounds, I guess I didn't realize how much I needed a break from my girls. I came home rejuvenated and with so much more patience. I guess I needed that break to be a better mommy to them. The weekend was a blast. It has been several years since Q & S and us went away together. Boy do I miss those days. We went on some fun trips and only got ill with each other on one. I think that is a pretty good record. Hopefully our future holds lots of family trips with them and us and all of our children. Sorry about the rambling, back to our weekend. The place was beautiful and our room was great except for the mattresses. The first night we slept with the windows open so that we could listen to the rain and the crickets. We had moving fellowship and got to meet some really neat people. I was really impressed at how Joe talked with so many people and made so many new friends. I guess I really have no point to my blog at all today, other than to say how happy I am to have Joe, Q & S. We have been through so many things and adventures together. We are so close and all truly brothers and sisters no matter what our blood says. I love the three of them to death and could not imagine my life without them. I am so grateful that my children will grow up in a close family and all the trips and adventures that our children and Q & S's chilren will get to experience together.
