Yay for the WEEKEND!

It's my favorite time of the week lately....Saturday morning. I just felt guilty typing that because I know Sundays are my favorite day of the week, but there's just something about a Saturday morning. Ahhh...the endless possibilities of what to do for the day.
I so cannot wait for the crisp and cool days of Autumn to get here. Before we adopted Robbie, Big Daddy and I would get in the car and head up Interstate 40. We would literally flip a coin to decide whether we'd go east or west and then we'd just ride. If we saw a brown sign to notate that a historical site was off of that exit, we'd decide to check it out. During those rides, we'd find old grist mills, old battle sites, homes of famous historical people, etc. Most of those types of places offer free or really cheap admission costs and are well worth the trips.
We didn't take an official family vacation this summer. We usually take our income tax refund and make that our vacation money, but this year we spent it on fake hardwoods that are STILL sitting in boxes in our formal (yea right) living room. So, this fall we'll be making those trips again with Robbie! I am excited about them and look forward to it!
Next weekend I'll be heading to Southern Pines for our Regional Meeting with the jewelry company that I am a part of. I will get to meet other people who work for the company too and the owners will be there as well! I'm excited about it but ain't looking forward to being away from my boys for one night.
Anyway...I started back to work this week. The kids will start Tuesday. I'm happy to be going back, but not excited about it. Know what I mean? Robbie also goes back to daycare Monday too. He loves it, but I always don't like having to take him back because that seems like we bid the summer vacation a farewell.
Please say a prayer for my Mammaw Frances. Her legs have always been bad about swelling. They'll stay swollen for 5 or 6 days and then go down, and when they do go down in size, there will be small spots or blisters. She has a place on the inside of her right leg that looks like it's trying to become infected. We're cleaning it, putting Neosporin on it, and keeing it wrapped up, but it still looks really bad. I will be getting her an appointment to be seen ASAP but I ask for your prayers. Y'all know my Mammaw is very dear to me and I hope God will heal her again.
Have a great weekend!
