The past six days have been somewhat of a blur to me. Aaron was told last Monday that he would be going out of town Thursday. Thursday was the day that my parents were flying in and they were staying with my sister. My sister was sick and needed help picking my parents up from the airport so Grace and I made the decision to go up and stay with my sister for the weekend rather than kickin' it in an empty apartment and driving back and forth.
It doesn't matter whether you're 20 miles from home or 2,000 miles from home, when you're gone, you're gone and my brain took up a permanent residence in vacation mode.
Then Monday rolled around. You know how you go out of town and forget that you have responsibilities and things to take care of? Yeah, I definitely pushed those aside. Monday was a rude awakening. I wrote many an email starting with, "I'm sorry things have been crazy." I also made the mistake of taking Tylenol PM last night to stop my brain from going a thousand miles a minute and now it feels like my brain neurons are traveling through molasses.
Let's not end on a sour note, eh? Guess what is back.... They are just half piggies, but they are there and I'm in love. Grace requested to take a picture with her "doggie." Don't see it? It's the tiny blue speck in the picture. Do I dare mention that I may or may not be obsessed with the bow in her hair? I takes every fiber of my being to not buy out everything in Avery's Bows etsy shop (seriously).
