Peanut Butter and Chocolate

Really, really spectacular weeked! Slight change of plans on Munchkin's front, so she didn't leave until last night, which meant she was with us after all...and probably a good thing, I'd have missed her terribly:-). But she is safe and sound in Paris now, so I have to do without for a week and a half or so.

We got down on Friday night in no time at all...not a lick of traffic, and we got to the ferry about five minutes before they closed the gate and pulled away (we tend to run late, what are you gonna do?). Girls slept the whole way in the car, and then we put them in their stroller and they slept the whole ferry ride. They woke up for a bit when we got there, but went back down pretty easily and slept well (maybe because I slept with them:-))

The sun didn't come out until late on Saturday, but once it did, the whole weekend was great. The early forecasts called for Sunday and Monday to be overcast and kinda crappy, but they turned out to be even better days...sunny and warm! That meant lots of beach time for this girl and her two little girls...once they got used to sand on their feet, they were fantastic little beach bums.

So, in the end, there was a lot of time on the beach, a lot of hanging with good friends and faux family. Much, much eating, probably a little too much drinking (and possibly one drunk email to a fellow blogger on Saturday chastising her for a lack of major changes to her love life...hee hee, sorry about that Aly:-))

The girls were in heaven...there were a million people to play with them and all kinds of stuff to get into trouble with. Still no interest in going into the ocean, which is fine because it is still really cold...maybe in a couple of months they will feel adventurous enough...we'll see.

On the drive back, I randomly spent a lot of time thinking about my father. I assume it was because it was Memorial Day and there were a million "Thank You Troops" reminders around, which reminded me of learning about my father's (brief) service. True to form, the one noble thing he almost ever did didn't stick...which I guess is pretty well in character. Oh well, at least it gave me a reference to appreciate the people and families that deserve to be appreciated on Memorial Day.

Anyway, not sure what that means about anything.

And now, back to work...boo!!! I think I like the idea of sitting on the beach much more...

However, I have made a really important decision...today, I am eating nothing but Reese's Peanut Butter cups all day. Deal?

Oh, it was well meaning chastising. I loved it. And needed it. You're allowed to get drunk and give me a hard time every day of the week, girlie.

Glad that your weekend was fabulous and that you got a little extra time with Munchkin. XO!

I'm sorry I ignored your entire post. The title made me so excited to read about peanut butter and chocolate (two of my most favorite flavors ever) that I read very fast until I came across those words ... IN THE VERY LAST SENTENCE!!! hahaha. Glad to hear you had a great weekend!
