Been a hectic week around here guys, some good and some bad!
Here’s all of the updates (I put them in list form to make it easier):
-I start school on August 25th. I am pursuing a Business B.A. and only going part time.
-Alex goes back to work on Monday.
-Autumn starts daycare/pre-preschool on Monday.
-I’m fighting with my sister and have no intention of fixing it.
-One of my close friends- Marylou- moved to Florida. 😦
Okay. On to the bigger ones!
We just got back yesterday from an amazing vacation! Dinah, Timur, Alex, Autumn and I spent three days in Wisconsin. The first two days and nights we went to Wisconsin Dells, and then the third day we went to Madison. We did slides with Autumn and she loved them! On the second day we dropped her off at Kids Quest (basically a daycare) so we could have a few hours to do the scary slides and stuff. It was a lot of fun but we really missed her! Some of the stuff we did on the trip: hot tubs, slides, wave pools, go carts (Autumn loved them!), walking downtown, etc. In Madison we ate lunch outside in downtown at a cute bar and grill. We walked around the city and explored the capital building. It was just an amazing trip!
A few nights before the trip I had a really good night with my in-laws. We went to dinner at Maggiano’s and then to Dave and Busters for games. We didn’t get home until quite late (thank you again for watching Auty, Timur!). Thank goodness Alex’s mom drove because his dad and I got wasted. We were the life of the party! Laughing, dancing, playing games, and drinking some more. It was a great night and I really felt like the bond between us is stronger then ever. I needed it, a lot. It reminded me how lucky I am to have them. There are days where I am angry with them (we are family after all), but ultimately they are amazing in-laws. They watch Autumn so we can get out, they are supportive whenever we need it, and they are very loving towards me.
Love and happiness to all,
