nice weekend, but now i need some rest

We spent a long weekend at Honey Creek Resort... rented a cabin and spent most of our freetime at their indoor waterpark. I spent most of that time in the hot tub. I could say that I did it purely in the interest of making sure everyone could find me easily if they couldn't find anyone else. But anyone who knows me knows how hard it would be for me to spend time anywhere but the hot tub.

'A' formally proposed marriage the night before the family trip... so we now have an S in the family... and she brings along a four year old little boy who also has an A name... so I am going to have to come up with a nickname for him. He is my favorite grandchild already because he tells me I am too young to be a grandma, so he is going to keep calling me Penny.  We were trying 'nana' on for size, but it didn't stick. 'a' is trying on the Uncle title... and torn between wanting to play with his nephew and getting frustrated with him. "Mom, he asks soooo many questions." Then there was the time I had to pull him off of him....they are close enough in age that they can fight like brothers. 'a' landed in time out over that fight.

All in all, it was a great, if tiring weekend. S got allergies, grandson ended up with an ear infection... and I need a three day nap.

Proud Mom Post

"A" got home from his long not-so-fun trip on Tuesday.

Wednesday, his gf was working and he was home with her son all day.

What does "A" do?

He cleans the apartment, works on getting laundry caught up, and packs for the whole family for the long weekend we have coming up.

She gets off work a little stressed because she has a lot to do for the trip and knowing she's working Thursday night as well... and he's got it all done for her.

Finally feeling a little like some of my nagging is finally turning out to have done some good.
