It's the last week of our vacation and of course, the weather is gorgeous. I've already been swimming in the lake once this week and plan to go again today. Yesterday, we took the boys to the water park, where they went crazy and I sat and read for several hours. Oh well, when you're a parent, you give up your own swim to make your kids happy. But this afternoon, it'll definitely be a good dip in the lake for me.
Believe it or not, we've actually decided to cut our out of town vacation down a bit and get home for a few days of staycation. One of our sons (Mr. "50 of my closest friends") hasn't been home for 5 weeks since he was at camp for two weeks just before we left for the cottage. He's dying to get back and connect with all his friends. Our older son (Mr. "Sleep in til 2 p.m. if he can") wouldn't mind getting home either. Hubby and I could stand a little time in our very own house too. Although the location of the cottage is totally awesome, the condition is pathetic. I honestly miss our washing machine and toaster...lol. I also miss my nice long walks and want to get back to my elliptical trainer again. I guess I'm going to have to build up my time again. Oh well.
I'll be back full speed ahead by the middle of next week and will post a few pictures.
See you then!
