School starts early here! The kids actually don’t start their first day of school until August 16th, but because my husband is a teacher, his first day is August 10th. One week from today! I can’t believe the summer is over already. It’s been a great one, though.
My dad came for a week. My brother in-law and sister in-law came for a week (ish.) My parent in-laws came for a week. And next week, my mom comes and she will also be staying for a week! Yahoo! Love having family here.
Daddy and Lucas have had lots of one-on-one time this summer. I think Lucas is really going to miss that and he’ll probably be a little confused too as to why he isn’t seeing daddy as much. That makes me sad. I hope to go on another date with him
, before next week, too.
Final Thoughts of The Bachelorette:
I liked ben better and I thought what they had looked very real to me. Apparently I was wrong. Ha! JP is nice too, but I wasn’t infatuated with him like a lot of people seemed to be. I felt so bad for Ben, it was just awful watching him. I hope he finds true love and happiness! Of course I hope Ashely and JP love forever as well…. we’ll see.
My biggest pet peeve during the whole show was the mis-matched swimsuits. Seriously, it drove me crazy.
I fast forwarded through a lot of the finale — I’m glad this season is over. I’m done with it and I need a little break from all this before I’m ready for the next season of The Bachelor/Bachelorette/Bachelor Pad
(Give me about 6 days.)
I did something to my knee and it hurts. I think I pulled something on our bike ride the other day when I was pulling them up a hill. That’s a hard workout and my knees weren’t ready for it! It is swollen and I can’t fully extend it. Yeah, not cool at all.
On Flying Solo:
A follow up on last week, when I asked you all about the idea of traveling to see family. Most of you thought I should go alone and leave the kids with my husband. It’s only for 3 days or so, and they would be fine without me. Well, I still haven’t decided what I want to do. I know my kids would do absolutely totally fine without me for a couple days. It’s not a big deal, and my husband would do great. It is a long ways (about 4 hour plane ride) to travel for just a couple days, so I’m not sure I want to do that. I’m also sort of scared of planes. It’s because I hear about planes crashing and people dying (mostly small planes, but still) all the time and I just worry. So, I don’t know. I’m not sure if I’m going to go or not.
