WOO HOO! My hubby is coming home today!!!! I am so excited! See, he works on tugboats up and down the Savannah River and he is gone 7 days and nights, then he is home for 7 days and nights. On those 7 days home, he works at Delta Air Lines. Needless to say, we don't see each other a whole lot. Lately, he has had to work for Delta out of town so when he is home, he isn't, Does that make sense? Basically he jets up to Virginia and works, then comes home on Thursday night in time to leave for the boat Friday morning. Yikes. We were craving some family time BADLY so his last week "home" I rented a cabin in South Carolina and we drove up there for a weekend of relaxation and fun. The only problem is, the time went by too fast and we did not really get much of a chance to relax because we were having too much fun fishing, shopping for scrapbook stuff, going out on the boat, shopping for scrapbook supplies, making s'mores, shopping for scrapbook supplies....ok you get it. I am sure it is pretty much the same for all of us right? When you come home from vacation you need a vacation?????

Well, this weekend.........WE ARE HIBERNATING! That's right, after burning the candle at both ends for almost 6 weeks straight we are officially ON HIATUS. Jamie has a safety meeting at work this morning, in fact that is where he is right now, but when he gets home today, it is ON baby! We are taking a total vacation at home. We have no plans, no schedule, nothing even on the calendar. We plan to watch movies, order pizza, play board games and just spend time together as a family. It is supposed to rain all weekend, so it looks like a great time to do this! Brenda says we need to pull our vehicles into the back yard and hide. :) I kinda like that!

So.....pray for us to get some much needed rest and to sort of regroup this weekend. We need to reconnect. Marissa has missed her Daddy and I have too! Hopefully we can sort of recuperate and get ready to put it in high gear again next week, as my Mom likes to say!

I am so happy for you in the Peterson household has not been as chipper as the rest of us have become accustomed to. Have a great weekend and could you keep the jungle noises down to a minimum???
