It’s been a busy 10 days and I loved every minute of it. My daughter in law arrived on Friday and my granddaughter was so glad to see her.
Yesterday my son and grandson and their dog, Nori, came out for breakfast. All of us had a nice morning of just being with each other. It’s always a treat for me to have family together.
My granddaughter and DIL left about 11:30am to make the long trek home. They made an adventure out of it by taking back roads and staying off the highways. It took them 7 hours to get home but they enjoyed every minute of it. If you have never taken a different route to where you are going, try it sometime. It is fun to travel from one side of a state to the other and just enjoy the scenery.
My son and grandson left to go home about 2:30pm. The house seemed very quiet after the hustle and bustle of the week.
Hubby and I ate leftovers for dinner. We had leftover spaghetti sauce with meatballs so I made Hubby a pasta bake smothered in mozzarella cheese. I ate leftover broccoli and chicken. I will freeze the rest of the cooked chicken for another day. The rest of the pasta bake will be scooped up into portion size dinners and frozen.
But today I have quite a to do list to catch up on:
Get groceries at Aldi’s and Top’s – they have some good sales that I am not passing up.
Return deposit bottles to Fast Cash.
Package and take an Amazon return to UPS.
Go to the library to return books and take out a couple more.
All of the errands will be run in an efficient way to save on gasoline.
When I get home, I need to:
– strip 3 beds and wash sheets and all of the towels from 2 bathrooms
– write a Thank You note to the person who held the reunion
– work on some future blog posts
– clean a bedroom
– cut up the veggies to make two salads
-just relax and watch a movie

We are back from a long weekend,and I also have a bunch to do today. I need to buy groceries, get in a workout, mail some eBay packages, do a return, go to the library, etc. Similar to your day.
We always seem to be so busy after vacation. Thanks for sharing.
Hi AD, this is Chris. I am so glad you had a good visit with your granddaughter and that both of your grandchildren got to spend some time together as cousins. That is so important. This week is the final week before we leave on our big trip, so I will be busy getting things ready. Last week our daughter and family were on vacation and we took care of their pets. Our cat is happy the dog went home on Sat. LOL! They went up to a place on Lake Michigan and had a good time.
I am so excited for you for your trip. I hope you have a wonderful time. It is supposed to be one of the most beautiful places to see. I bet the cat is happy! LOL!
I have things to do–wash my hair, hang clothes from washer, cook squash casserole, cook another dish, wash a few dishes of many dirty ones. If I do more, I will suffer even there is much more to do.
Don't overdo it!
Having company is so fun but the changing of the sheets before and after is a lot of work.
You are so right!
