okay…. so now we are in Durham, NC.
We left the mountains yesterday morning, dropped Seven at the airport and came to my girlfriend’s house. We will play with her and her chillins until Friday when it’s time to get get my big boy from camp!!
We spent the last few days with 2 of my favorite people on this Earth- The Bird and The Bassett Hound. We ate, drank and laughed for 72 hours straight. Oh, and the guys played golf. The Bird and I did not. But we did drink wine. It’s so important to have hobbies.
We stayed at an awesome cabin so high up it was like a treehouse.. Hummingbirds, butterflies, and fireflies were our only company… oh, and the sound of hound dogs howling from down the mountain… bliss
It was terribly difficult to leave those birds and hound dogs and butterflies. But we did. Visiting great old friends in Durham until it’s time to pick up Number One from camp. Which is approximately 54 hours from now.. not that I’m counting.
I cannot believe how much I miss him.. And note– I have TWO MORE KIDDOS to keep me busy! AND he’s he’s one I fight with the most! And he’s a pain in the ass and a sassy pants! This should be a nice little break.. and it is… except for it’s not. I want to hear his voice! I just want a 2 minute conversation to hear that he’s having a BALL and what courses he got.. that’s it!! 2 minutes of that sweet voice…..
But I will have to wait 54 more hours for that…. So in the meantime… in Durham with one of my college besties and her kids… museum, river and pool are on our agenda for today. Oh, and probably margaritas or something else delightful.
yay me ! ( and ps.. now it’s only 53 hours and 52 minutes)
