Spring Break, All Around

I put the princesses on an airplane just a few hours ago; Spring Break began in earnest. I assume you saw CNN and the tornado that tore up downtown in the Deep South? After that last night, it did nothing but storm all night long. (Does anyone remember that we are in a drought?)

I prayed hard (and I mean hard) because I am a bad flier, but I was putting my babies on a jet plane, people. As we got closer to the airport, BrownBear began to babble. PrepGirl looked over at her and said, "You're beginning to sound like Mom. Quit." I freely admit it. I was a basket case. But BrownBear was looking and sounding a little like a basket case, too. However, flying in stormy weather isn't anybody's idea of a good time. LawyerBoy and I got to escort them through security to the gate to hand them off to my sister, PrincipalGirl.

Once they got to the beach, BrownBear gave me a call. They had lined up and were 12th to take off. But they got up and got there.

Now, there's nothing but blue skies and sandy beaches.

Unless you're me; then it's nothing but quiet, putting things away and them staying that way and nobody home in the afternoon. I guess that's what it will be like when college comes along.

Enjoy your kid-free week. I am more envious of you home alone than your girls at the beach! I long for some alone time. I can't even get it in the bathroom! I know I will be begging for just the opposite soon enough.
