I'm so excited...

I really think that part of the fun of the vacation is planning the vacation. We decided to take a week this summer and go visit my brother and his bride in D.C. We're going to take the first part of the week and go to Williamsburg where we will stay at this fun place and then we may head here for a day. I also booked a ghost tour of Williamsburg for one night. We are going to have so much fun! I just wish I didn't have to wait months to enjoy it.

And...for our 16th anniversary coming up (shut up we were CHILDREN when we got married) we're thinking of driving down to this cool spa for the weekend --what do you guys think? Nice getaway?

I have spring break this week and Jason took it off so we CAN WORK ON THE HOUSE! And that's ever so exciting for me. If we actually complete something, I will post pictures.

I am also supremely excited that Scott, a professed Republican, may be inching toward the left a bit. Now, if only my husband would start thinking more clearly...oh I mean, more like me.

I am not excited about daylight saving. I am normally not a person who is late but yesterday we missed church and today I spaced my dental appointment. You can take a survey about daylight saving and read some entertaining parenting/relationship stuff from the Dad's perspective here.

But back to being excited...I LOVE my OB class. To the point where I've been tinkering around with the idea of Jason going and getting his vasectomy reversed. And the great guy that he is, would agree to it (even though it's painful and needles are involved..what a guy). But then again, I'm almost 40 (yikes), in nursing school and my boys are getting older....but if I was 100% guaranteed a girl...well then this decision would be so much easier...

Thanks for the shoutout. Thanks to daylight savings time, I was running late all day today.

Well that sounds like an interesting trip. I hope you have a good time.

Thanks for the shout out.

OB? I am excited for that, too! So are you wanting a little girl you could raise from birth? Have you ever thought of adopting? I know there are pros and cons (like agencies being the devil and all). But at almost 40, that has the higher risk of Down Syndrome. And I was recently shocked to see a man of about 60 with a son of about 8. I think that is irresponsible on the man's part--he might be in the nursing home by the time his son graduates HS! You could adopt an older girl (5-10) so she'd be closer to your sons. She might have emotional issues from living an unsure life, but wouldn't it be great to take a little girl into your family and love her as your own? It might make the difference in her growing up protected and loved and productive, or, if she is bounced through the foster care system until 18, with no stability, then she might end up in jail most of her life. Well, maybe it is none of my business--family planning is personal. I just wanted you to maybe consider it. I think it is very possible that I will adopt kids someday . . . (assuming women stop running away from me)

TZ....Your break away looks great....but what you really need to do is catch a wave or two or three over here....Tell you what...we could house swap for a few weeks ... and as added bonus you get two very spolit naughty white fluffy dogs...oh and a great tan....

What more could you ask for ?.....

scott. we actually have thought of adopting. you can do a foster-adopt program here and after nursing school jason and i will give it some consideration...then again, after planning our trip there was a whole thing about wow, it's nice there's only two kiddos...

our oldest son really wants a family of like 10 (and that is NOT going to happen)

SIS--but then I wouldn't be able to hang out with you and you'd be hanging out with the other neighborhood blogging mommies and I'd be next door to the rednecks...
i do want to vacay in australia soon....but you must come live here!

...or maybe just hang out with a 13 year old girl for a couple of hours. Girls are so nice a cute when they're tiny and snuggly... and then again on their....25th birthdays? It's the span of time in between that would seem hellish to me.

Can't wait for you and the boys to come visit!! Williamsburg is great- fun for all ages. I heard that a lot of the new HBO mini series "John Adams" was filmed there... Yay for history!

We have a GW Lodge about 45 minutes from us. All I can tell you is take more money than you think you will need :)

I hear you on the daughter thought. Having 3 boys (that I adore) is wonderful but there are days I long for hair to braid or someone to watch Lif*time movies with---but, I am going to have to hope for grandgirls cause this momma is waaaaayyy too old to start over :)

Oh Crap...I was hoping you forgot about those rednecks next door.....

LOL...
