Boy that reentry is not easy when you have come to accept that every time you leave your state room the bed will be made and there will be a new towel animal waiting for you upon your return.
Man! We had to like make dinner and junk tonight!
But ... the little ones did excellent here at home with Dad and Grandma. My Fabulous Miss M is gearing up to give me the business for the next few days make no mistake about that, but they did very well while I was gone and that will make leaving again more doable! Go me!
The cruise was an absolute retreat and spending that time with my 11 year old girl who will have out grown me in a blink was priceless. She gets lost in the shuffle around here because she is capable and Mama has a lot on her plate. I try to address it often, that I notice it and want it to be different. And I do what I can do to make that happen. I try to set aside time with her in the evening as many nights as possible but the reality is I am tired and worn out from the day and probably less fun then I'd like to be.
The Nanster needed time away too. She is very good about backing us up and allowing either me or the Hubs to get done what we need to. She is very dedicated to our brood and this was our way of saying thank you to her.
