Counting the Days...

...until R&R, that is. Let me just say it is getting very close. With all that the boys and I have going on right now, it will be here before I know it. I had a nice, long chat via Skype with Steve this morning, and it was just what I was needing. Camden and Griffin were both at school, so we were able to really talk about a whole bunch of things. I've been missing Steve so much lately, and I wish I could get a grip on that. It's a combination of things really - - post-holiday let-down, cold & dreary weather, not seeing many adults. I'm really making a concerted effort to get out of these doldrums and get on with it.

Steve and I spent a lot of time talking about what we'd like to do during R&R. I'd mentioned that I'd really like for the two of us to get away for one night - - go out for dinner and stay overnight in Boise, but getting Steve to spend even 12 hours away from the boys is going to take a miracle - I could tell from his response. I'm going to keep working on him though because I think it is important for us to have at least a little time alone. We also talked about how we just want to "disappear" for a few days when he gets here. We discussed a few different options and they all sound like fun!


  1. So lovely that R&R is at least tangible for you all now. You never know, you may be able to twist Steve's arm for a night away, especially since he may realize that if timed right, it may only mean being away from the boys for a couple of hours in the evening (then they go to bed), and a couple of hours next morning! Then you could pick up the boys & all of you whizz away somewhere fun! I feel so excited for you all now - it's great that you can occupy your mind with some planning. Oh & I love the new blog design too - lovely and colorful!

  2. I hope I can, Nicky...that's what I told him today when I was talking with him...that he would only actually be away from them for a couple of hours because they'd be asleep the majority of the time! I'm going to keep working on him. I purchased a pre-made template on a whim today (because I am a techno-idiot and can't figure it out for myself)...it was cheap, and I like it much better like this. Still trying to change the colors around a little but I'm timid about doing too much in fear of erasing everything!

  3. I'll keep my fingers crossed that you can persuade him! And I really want to do something with my site, but don't know what yet! I'll procrastinate for a while longer and eventually force myself into action as a result of disgust!
