What a weekend! I'm sorry I'm behind on blog rounds. I think it must be something in the air. Seriously. I promise to make up for my absense this afternoon. At any rate, it was such a rollercoaster of a weekend, I feel like I need a few days to recover from it.
Hubby came home for the weekend, and Mini clung to him like a sticky vine. Daddy wasn't getting too far from his view. We spent the time at home, just hanging out and watching movies. Oldest had a friend over, and PawPaw (my dad) came to visit. He played out on the patio with Mini and a bucket of sidewalk chalk.
While the guys are out in the yard visiting and enjoying the sunshine, I came in to fire off an email and got a message from a dear friend who informed me that Nadia Kajouji has been found. She'd been missing since March 9th, when she was last seen by roommates at their university residence in Ottawa. Well, they discovered her body in the river near the university early Sunday morning. I read what they were telling me and I just sat there in shock. I think some part of me expected to hear that kind of news, but there was still the hope that she was just run off somewhere but doing ok.
Right after that bit of news, we learned hubby's friend had been hit by a car while walking along the road side near his home. His leg is broken in 3 places and his ankle is crushed. They are keeping him in the hospital for a week, but hubby had to leave out this morning for Lake Charles, so he couldn't even get up to Shreveport to visit him.
I've vowed today to take a "stress day". I plan to write this afternoon, but in a few minutes I'm going to load up Mini in the jeep and we're going to visit at Grammy's house.
Once we get back, first things first, I'm digging the sand out of the turtle sandbox and moving it closer to the front door. We'd put it off to the side of the house where we usually park our Jeeps, but there are too many ant beds there. I'm worried Mini will step in one. So with hubby out of town, I'm going to rearrange things. Typical woman behavior, right? LOL!
Happy Monday, everyone.
