31 Days of Life Simplified, Day 10: Getting Away

Maybe, on occasion, I can get a little over ambitious. Especially when it comes to working through our project list.  And you probably know that "our" project list is really "my" project list.  I just have a good man that goes along with my crazy.

At the beginning of this past week, we had the opportunity to head up to South Bend for a football weekend with some of our extended family.  James and I had been wanting to make a trip up to the campus during the fall, BUT.....

.....this was supposed to be our month to get the house organized - we would lose a whole weekend of making progress around the house

.....we would have to leave in four days

.....we were signed up to do the Halloween mini-trail at the park this weekend

......the timing is not great

.....this prego belly is getting big

......this was supposed to be our month to get the house organized - we would lose a whole weekend of making progress around the house

Well, guess where we are?  

In beautiful South Bend, spending a rare weekend with some of our extended family.  Exactly where we are supposed to be.

Sometimes, you just need to throw the plans out the window.  It's been a busy, stressful few weeks of home/work/life and I didn't realize how much we needed to get away until I saw my husband's excitement as we started planning for the trip. 



Strangely, house projects do not give my husband the same joy and satisfaction as they do me.  Did I mention I have a good man?   

We couldn't have asked for a better fall weekend.  It's absolutely beautiful here and been so nice to spend time with some family we haven't seen in awhile....especially when there's football and tailgating to be had!

And the bump is doing just fine.  (The kids and I came back to watch the game at the house while everyone else is at the stadium.  Because naps for all).

Maybe the best thing you can do for your to-do list, is to put it down for awhile.
