Need.Coffee.Now.

It's time. Time to get back into a schedule and leave the days of sleeping in behind. The only problem is I'm so darn tired. I don't really have trouble waking up and really, 6:55 isn't too terribly early. The problem is staying awake after that- blah. But Halle slept until 11 yesterday morning and that means that she's up late (midnight-ish) and I'm up late and Travis goes to bed by himself...not ideal. So I'm trying to get us on a better schedule. Which means I have to drink coffee apparently. There is no way I can stay awake by myself. The other upside is that I have more energy for working out.

I got Halle up at 8:00 and she hardly opened her eyes. I put her on the couch so that I could drink the aforementioned coffee and she said "it's not comforble". So she fell into a crumpled heap in the floor. Very cute but she's foiling my attempt at a schedule. And I'm not staying up until midnight tonight.
Back to the week at my parent's house. The first day we spent mostly at Best Buy. Well, it seemed that way anyway. Thankfully they had a Wii set up for demonstration and the girls and I played Mario Cart. It was really fun; we should get one of those someday.
The next day we spent mostly at Bass Pro Shop. Normally it's not my cup of tea but out of deference to my dad I thought we'd check it out. He usually spends hours sitting on mall benches or taking naps in his car while we shop with my mom so I thought this was a nice compromise. And I actually, really, had a lot of fun. This particular store is enormous (bigger than the one in Nashville) and had an eating area. Dad got the girls ice cream cones and we sat at a table and watched mom and Chloe play checkers and talked for quite a while. We spent longer than we meant to there. And then we headed off to meet my Aunt and Uncle for dinner.




All in all it was a great day and from this point I only had to wait two more days until Travis joined us. He was able to take Friday off thankfully. And he might possibly have been miserable without us...

I know what you mean about getting up early. I'm sooo not a morning person! It sounds like such a relaxing time with your parents. :) My husband loves Bass Pro Shop and could get lost in there for hours!

Awwww...I sympathize with the non-morning-heads. I have to, have to, have to have coffee to get going. No question about it.
Oh, and? I heart Mario Cart. I rock the Princess Peach dragster.

Ooh, we were totally Princess Peach although not the dragster. I can't remember what car we were but it was cute- heck, maybe it was the dragster. I can't remember.

Three weeks is a long break. It sounds like you guys made the most of it. We drove through Birmingham on our way to Florida because we went to Tallahassee first. As we passed through we both smiled and said how glad we were that you don't live there anymore. Now if we can just keep you from going to Florida. :)

Awww, sweet Mary. Now if we could just get you to move to FL. ;)
