Impromptu Trip plus 365 Catch Up (Day 29 – 33)

Friday afternoon my gorgeous husband asked me if I would like to go to my parent’s house for the weekend, he must have known I needed a break and a visit with them even more than I did… So, I packed our suitcase while Casey, who had come to visit for the day, played with Ellie.

We weren’t quite ready when James got home… it took us an hour from him getting home to get on the road. It was a good trip. We stopped to feed Kahlei once and Ellie slept for at least half of the time. Once we got to Mum and Dad’s she was WIDE awake and ready for fun (at almost 10 o’clock). Kahlei was very upset as she had been woken to get out of the car and was hard to get back to sleep at first, poor little thing.

We had an awesome weekend. Ellie slept in my parent’s room, which meant I didn’t have to get up before 7am and that made a real difference to how I felt. James and I got to go shopping alone. I know, crazy! I didn’t have to cook or clean and I got to spend some quality time with my parents and my three brothers. It was so so good. We played cards, everyone but me cheated, which is why I didn’t win. We watched my Dad Wiifit for the first time (and will be sending that video to Funniest Home Videos).

James and I took a drive past the house he had fallen in love with and I actually really liked it in person. Unfortunately, the only way we’re going to move anytime soon is if we win 3 million dollars (don’t ask me why it has to be that exact amount, James has some magnificent dream and has chosen this amount). The likelyhood of winning said amount? Zip.

I have some silver coins savings that Ellie and I put in my cow when my wallet gets too full. I’m now imagining this being my moving fund and then imagining being a hundred years old by the time that amounts to anything enough. It’s really hard to know that if we ever move close it will be a long time coming. Time spent near my family really revives me and I can’t help but think of how much better I would feel if I had them close to physically support me. To feel like I am doing something to get me where I want to go I am naming my cow ‘Mooove the Moving Fund’ (donations greatly accepted, hehe) and starting a book… I won’t be holding my breath, though. I just need to feel like I am making an effort to get there since I want it so badly. It would also be nice to feel like I’ll be out of this town sooner rather than later.

Tomorrow I will upload some piccies from our weekend.
