Today Lydia and I are babysitting my niece and nephew, Grace and JT. We had big plans at the beginning of this trip......to sleep in, drink coffee leisurely, relax. Then kids happened. THEY wanted time with their out of town family too and were persistent in getting it. In the end what's more important than relationships? So instead of doing what we thought we'd be doing, we
played dress up
went to the bakery for a treat (just an excuse for me to get coffee),
and then to a local bookstore where we got a couple of toys and looked at books.
I looked at the clock afterwards, and it was only 9:30 am. Baaaaah!!! I thought it'd be lunchtime. I guess that's because I'm sick and haven't slept much since we got here. I'm having to really rally today. I must go now....back to the trenches....or rather to the corner market for cookie ingredients.
