It's so quiet...

I can hear myself think.

Last week was chaotic craziness.  And don't get me wrong, I loved every minute of it. :)

came to visit me.  Ok.  Their parents came, too, but, let's face it.  They

were the main attraction.


Aside from a wee minor problem involving flight changes and lost luggage, they arrived safely last Sunday night.  We had plans to go to the beach on Monday but the weather did not cooperate.  Instead we went to a large mall that had a Dave and Buster's attached.  It was fun watching the kids play the games to earn tickets.  I even helped a little. :)

We got to the beach on Tuesday and had so much fun.  The kids loved it and played all day in the sand and the water.  They chased the ducks and built sandcastles.  It was so much fun to watch them and boy were they TIRED when we got home that night!

Wednesday they left to go up to Philly for a few days.  They visited the zoo and the Please Touch Museum and got to meet one of their great aunts for the first time.  They had a blast!

They came back to me on Friday and we went to see Cars 2.  It was cute but I have decided I do not have the right eyes to watch 3D movies.  Every time I have been to see one I can never seem to see the 3D effects.  Anyway, the kids loved it and that's all that mattered. :)

They went to Six Flags on Saturday and spent the whole day there playing in the water and riding rides.  I met them for dinner that night and then we had dessert at Rita's.  YUM!

Sadly, they left yesterday to head back home.  The week went by too fast and it is so quiet in my house now.  I miss them and Christmas is a long time away!

miss raven seems to be doing well.
she is eating like a champ and really seems to miss her crunchies.  I have to soak them in water for the next several days until her mouth heals completely.  We are done with the pain meds and have only a few more antibiotics left.  The only thing that slightly concerns me is that I haven't seen her drink any water at all since I brought her home on Thursday.  I am hoping that, because her crunchies are so loaded with water, she is getting the liquid that she needs there.  she is going to the bathroom normally, so I am not too worried.  Right now she is sleeping on my lap as I type this.  she is such a sweetie. :)

Have a happy Tuesday!!  Tomorrow--gardening and (lack of) dieting update.


  1. As one of "their parents", I can vouch that the kiddos had a great time! Glad to hear that Raven is doing well!
